Medieval Literature Online

There is now a new online compendium of English translations for overlooked Middle Ages texts. The recently launched Global Medieval Sourcebook, curated by Stanford University faculty and students, offers English versions of previously untranslated Middle Ages literature.

The Global Medieval Sourcebook is, as suggested by its title, a globally focused resource, with plans for medieval texts translated from Arabic, Chinese, Old Spanish, Latin, Middle High German, Old English, and Old French.  Academics are being invited to contribute short introductions, sometimes accompanied by an audio recording and high-resolution image of the original manuscript. The new English translations are readable alongside the source language.
