From Around the Web (56)

A new source for unknown mediaeval texts in English.

There is a wealth of unknown mediaeval texts in many languages besides English. And most of these texts are not online. To this end, researchers at Stanford University launch a new project in 2017. It is called the Global Medieval Sourcebook.

The nifty website is maintained by scholars and aimed at the public at large. The project team intends to regularly update the database and calls on scholars in the field to share their (in)valuable knowledge on these texts.

How much material from the Viking Age or Scandinavian sources will become available is unclear. In any case, though, this will be an important resource. See also Stanford News.
