Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies

Welcome to the home page of ACMRS (Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies). ACMRS was established in 1981 by the Arizona Board of Regents as a state-wide research unit. Located centrally on the campus of Arizona State University, ACMRS is charged with coordinating and stimulating the interdisciplinary exploration of Medieval and Renaissance culture. Its activities cover a period roughly from 400 C.E., the fall of the Roman Empire, to 1700 C.E. ACMRS organizes programs at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona State University in the greater Phoenix area, and the University of Arizona in Tucson.
