Abstract: The raison d’être behind the writing of this paper is related to the participation of Mr. Frans X. Cassar and I in an EU-funded project within a COST action. This particular project is about the digitalization of European medieval documentation and is entitled ISCH 1005 Medieval Cultures and Technological Resources - Medioevo Europeo. In reality, it is a trans-disciplinary action, as its research base broaches onto the Early Modern Times and involves the input of linguists and computer programmers. It departs from the use of the Latin Language in Medieval Europe and seeks the integration of Latin dictionaries and narratives related to Europe’s Middle Ages. Yet, the lexicological interest on one hand and the search for medieval narrative on the other prompted discussion among the different groups of scholars participating in this action. Legitimate queries of historical and cultural interest have been put forward. The author of this paper questioned the euro-centrality of the medieval research, which more often then not, translates itself into the study of the Latin-speaking sphere.
