Expansion of the Historical Index of the Medieval Middle East (MIMME), a reference resource identifying primary historical sources on medieval Middle Eastern history (600-1500 CE), containing up to 50,000 entries about medieval Middle Eastern people, places, events, and cultural practices.

The Historical Index of the Medieval Middle East (HIMME) will expand our understanding of a critical period of human history. The medieval Middle East (600-1500) continues to be significant for current events, yet public understanding and scholarly arguments about this history have been limited by the difficulty of accessing all the relevant primary sources in their various languages. HIMME will make diversity and commonality visible by providing an index to an extensible collection of primary sources in the full range of medieval Middle Eastern languages, noting where translations are available. An expressive temporal model will enable scholars to refine queries based on transmission. Freely available online and indexed by search engines, HIMME will document for scholarly and public audiences the unexpected linguistic, ethnic, and religious diversity of a region which is popularly conceptualized as linguistically, ethnically, and religiously monolithic (Arabic, Arab, and Islamic).
