    Hi there. The University of Notre Dame Australia offers two history courses in mediaeval studies on the Sydney campus: the European Middle Ages and the Mediaeval Christian Experience, plus one course in Mediaeval Philosophy. With trained mediaevalists on staff, the university can offer independent studies in undergrad, honours and HDR degrees on mediaeval topics, especially art history, aesthetics, hagiography and society.
