Rocky Mountain Medieval and Renaissance Association
For many years the most persistent lament in this part of the country was the absence of a proper forum for the sharing of scholarly study of one of the most significant periods of human history, that of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Annual meetings were generally at too great a distance for many of the members and failed to collect a sufficient number of Rocky Mountain people for conviviality and the sharing of knowledge and experiences. Some sort of organization was imperative.
