The Research Centre for Medieval and Modern Hellenism (KEMNE) has succeded the Medieval Archive (Mesaionikon Archeion) founded in 1930. The aim of KEMNE is to conduct research on medieval and modern Hellenism especially during the Ottoman and the Venetian era. The research interests of KEMNE focus on:
1. The systematic research and study of Greek history and literature during the above mentioned period. For this purpose KEMNE conducts research programs aiming to develop studies of general and specific issues and to produce the publication of books and articles and commented editions of historical sources and philological texts, as well as to create relevant databases.
2. The promotion of basic research. For this purpose KEMNE organises visits to archives and libraries in Greece and abroad in order to locate, reproduce and study archival material, manuscripts and old printed books. The promotion of basic research is also served by the creation of a microfilm archive, the compilation of catalogs of archival or printed material, indexes, bibliographies and other related reference works.
3. Since 1984 KEMNE is editing the journal "Mesaionika kai Nea Ellinika" (Medieval and Modern Greek Studies), formerly the "Epetiris tou Mesaionikou Archeiou", 1939-1969/70 (Yearbook of the Medieval Archive).
