The Global Medieval Sourcebook

The further development of the Global Medieval Sourcebook, an open-source resource for transcriptions, translations, and contextual information about digitized medieval texts from Europe, North Africa, and Asia. This project adds new content, expands the available languages, integrates TEI markup, and develops new pedagogical features.

The Global Medieval Sourcebook, a teaching and research resource, will present transcriptions of original medieval texts and their translations in an accessible, user-friendly, downloadable, open-source format. It will include information about each text, including a scholarly and user-friendly commentary on the text and translation. Links to online manuscripts and other relevant materials will enable scholars to use the site as a research portal and will provide essential context to students and teachers. Texts will be searchable by genre, author, date, language, keywords, and themes. Additionally, with teachers and students in mind, we will create and upload audio files of specialists reading the texts in their original language. Currently we are able to cover the following languages: Middle High German, Old French, Old and Middle English, and Medieval Chinese, Arabic, and Persian. In the next two years, we will expand to include medieval Spanish and Italian, with Slavic languages anticipated for addition in the next phase.
