The French Institute of German History, Frankfurt
In 2015, the School signed a collaboration protocol with the French Institute of German History, Frankfurt.
This collaboration strives to develop joint research and educational concentrations with Germany and encourage students to study abroad and carry out their internships in Germany.
International Federation of the Institutes for Medieval Studies (FIDEM)
Created in 1987, this organisation’s purpose is to support historical research regarding the medieval period, specifically, by updating the international directory of medievalists, by proposing a European Medieval studies diploma and by organising, every five years, the European Congress of Medieval Studies.
The Ecole Nationale des Chartes has been a member of the FIDEM since 1990 and participates in the organisation’s activities by sending professors to teach different classes for the European diploma (palaeography, diplomacy, Medieval Latin, publication of texts) and going to annual meetings that decide on its scientific positioning.
Dei Ritmi Latini Corpus Project
This European project, conducted by the CISLAB (Centro Interdipartimentale di Studi sui Beni Librari e Archivistici) at the University of Siena and the SISMEL (Società Internazionale per lo Studio del Medioevo Latino), attempts to publish around 700 rhythmical poetry texts in Latin from the Carolingian period in a CD-ROM format.
The Ecole Nationale des Chartes has participated in this publication since the launch of the enterprise, by collaborating in the methodology, supervision and analysis of the poetry conserved in Parisian libraries, as well as through several publications.
This network of European institutions working in the field of historical research by editing and publishing sources in both printed and digital versions has five members: the Institute of Historical Research (London), the Royal Historical Commission of Belgium (Brussels), the Institut für Mittelalterforschung (Vienna), The Institute for the History of the Netherlands (ING; The Hague) and the Ecole Nationale des Chartes (Paris). The members of this network meet once a year. The purpose of this informal network is to jointly respond to the European Commission’s call for projects.
The purpose of the Gallia Pontificia is to collect and study the papal acts conserved in France before 1198, the year in which Innocent III’s papacy started, as well as the series of registers from the papal chancery.
This enterprise is one of the components of the Göttinger Papsturkunden-Werk, founded in 1896 by Paul Fridolin Kehr (1860-1944) under the auspices of the Academy of Sciences in Gottingen. Since 1981, the Gallia Pontificia has been become its own separate entity and entrusted to the German Historical Institute in Paris. Since 1991, the Ecole Nationale des Chartes has been associated with the Institute in order to successfully see this project to fruition.
Under this framework:
- The collection of Etudes et documents for a Gallia pontificia / Studien und Dokumente zur Gallia pontificia is published. Five volumes have been published from 1993 to 2007 by Bouvier Verlag, and two volumes have been published since 2009 by the Ecole Nationale des Chartes in co-publication with the German Historical Institute
- Since 1999, a biennial roundtable has been organised related to the papacy and its relations with France up until the 13th century. This roundtable alternates between the Ecole des Chartes and the German Historical Institute. It provides a regular opportunity for French, German and Swiss researchers participating in the project to exchange with one another.
