Historically, the FEF has been especially supportive of certain sectors of medieval European textual culture: in particular Latin literature, and well as that in Italian and other Romance languages, above all from a philological prospective; mystical and Mariological literature; musical forms, and the relationship between text and music. In addition to these sectors is a strong interest in digital humanities, as applied to medieval studies, as well as special attention to the history of medieval studies, beginning with the intellectuals whose papers are conserved by the FEF.
The pages dedicated to each sector highlight the principal research activities promoted by the FEF.
