Welcome to the Premodern Italian Document Exchange (PIDE)!


The COVID-19 pandemic has forced scholars to rethink how we access unpublished archival sources and conduct research. It is our hope that PIDE will help connect researchers with the sources they need to complete their ongoing projects, especially in light of reduced research budgets, greater travel restrictions, and more limited access to Italian archives and libraries. It is also our hope that PIDE will help to sustain and grow an already vibrant scholarly community working to expand our understanding of premodern Italy.
