Sourcebooks and Bibliographies

Internet Medieval Sourcebook

Director: Dr. Paul Halsall

The Internet Medieval Sourcebook contains thousands of public-domain and copyright-permitted texts of primary sources for use in teaching all disciplines and periods of the Middle Ages.  It is specifically designed for teachers, who can use the texts in a variety of ways: by directing students to the website, by downloading the documents and copying them for distribution in course packets or as handouts, or by creating online syllabi and course outlines that link to the Sourcebook.

The website contains both older (copyright-free) translations and newly translated texts, many only available on the Sourcebook.  It is a part of the Internet History Sourcebooks Project, which includes three main sourcebooks—ancient, medieval, and modern—and nine subsidiary sourcebooks.


Online Medieval Sources Bibliography

Editor: Dr. Maryanne Kowaleski
Assistant Editor: Morgan Kay

The Online Medieval Sources Bibliography provides a searchable database of medieval texts now available online or in printed editions and translations—from private letters, wills, and household accounts to literary works, philosophical treatises, chronicles, court proceedings, and many other documents.

The project’s fully annotated entries present information on the genre, contents, archival reference, and language of each text, as well as whether the publications include a translation, introduction, appendices, glossary, and index, so that users from all backgraounds can evaluate the suitability of a modern edition to their needs.

The primary sources date between roughly 300 and 1500 and cover Western Europe, Northern Africa, and the Middle East.  Users can search by text name, medieval author, modern editor/translator, online sources, facsimiles, date, original language, translation language, country/region, record type, and subject headings.


The Latin Works of John Wyclif

Director: Dr. J. Patrick Hornbeck II.

In his time, John Wyclif was England’s most eminent theologian and its first heresiarch. This site aims to make the corpus of Wyclif’s Latin philosophial and theological works, formerly accessible only in the late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century editions of the Wyclif Soceity, available to a general scholarly audience. The digital project will include all of the works published by the Wyclif Society, as well as other key texts published elsewhere. The site’s search features allow users to query both specific volumes and the corpus as a whole.
