Index of Medieval Art Database becomes free to users

By CMS in Recent publications

The Index of Medieval Art at Princeton University is delighted to announce that as of July 1, 2023, its online database will become free to all users. This change has been made possible by a generous bridge grant from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and the ongoing support of Princeton’s Department of Art & Archaeology. The database can be consulted at

The team at the Index looks forward to sharing our resources with students and scholars at all levels and with public learners seeking reliable information about medieval art and culture. In the coming months we will offer several online training sessions to introduce the database to those who may be unfamiliar with it, the schedule and signups for which will be publicized on our blog ( and through the Index social media accounts. The first session will be held on August 3, 2023 from 10:00 to 11:00am EDT; further information and registration can be found at this link: Index staff also remain available for researcher questions via our online form at

With thanks for your continued support! –
