The Monumenta Paleographica
Medii Aevi is a European venture, sponsored by the International Academic Union.
Considering the Commission’s experience and expertise, Belgium’s two Scientific Academies suggested that it should take scientific responsibility for the Series Belgica.
A subcommittee of the Royal Historical Commission therefore officiates as the Belgian section of this project. It is composed of our fellow colleagues Thérèse de Hemptinne, Jean-Louis Kupper and Walter Prevenier. The person replacing the late lamented Pierre Cockshaw has yet to be named.
Featuring among the envisaged projects is the editing of certificates of authenticity regarding the relics of saints.
