Perseus Digital Library

Description

Perseus focuses upon the Greco-Roman world, and offers full-text literature in original languages and in English translation, as well as images of art and archaeology. Other disciplines--early modern English, the American Civil War, the history and topography of London, the history of mechanics, automatic identification and glossing of technical language in scientific documents, customized reading support for Arabic language, and other projects--allow Perseus to maintain a broader focus and to demonstrate the commonalities between Classics and other disciplines in the humanities and beyond. Includes many reference works, such as 'The Princeton Encyclopedia of Classical Sites,' 'A Homeric Dictionary' (Autenrieth), 'A Greek Grammar for Colleges' (Smyth), and many commentaries on ancient authors and their texts.

International Encyclopaedia for the Middle Ages

Alternative Titles
International Encyclopaedia for the Middle Ages (IEMA)
Lexikon des Mittelalters (LexMa)
Brepolis
Description

The International Encyclopaedia for the Middle Ages (IEMA) is a Supplement to Lexikon des Mittelalters (LexMa). The purpose of IEMA is to supplement LexMA with newly-written commissioned articles, fully peer-reviewed as well as with articles from reference books.
IEMA draws some of its information from the following books:

  • Fasti Ecclesiae Gallicanae. Répertoire prosopographique des évêques, dignitaires et chanoines de France de 1200 à 1500 (Turnhout: Brepols)
  • Die Bischöfe des Heiligen Römischen Reiches 1198-1448, by Erwin Gatz (Berlin: Duncker & Humblot, 2001)
  • Nationaal Biografisch Woordenboek (Brussel: Koninklijke Vlaamse Academie van België voor Wetenschappen en Kunsten, 1964- )
  • Biskupi kościoła w Polsce w latach 965-1999, by Piotr Nitecki
  • Normannia monastica (Xe-XIIe siècle). Prosopographie des abbés bénédictins, by Véronique Gazeau (Caen, Publications du CRAHM, 2008).

The Lexikon des Mittelalters is an indispensable tool for medievalists across all disciplines. It deals with all branches of Medieval Studies and covers the period from 300 to 1500 AD/CE for the whole of Europe and parts of Western Asia and North Africa. The ancient roots of Western civilisation, as well as neighbouring civilisations, such as the Byzantine, the Arabic and the Jewish, occupy a prominent position in the encyclopaedia. The information of the printed edition has been enriched by Brepols Publishers with English headwords, inbuilt translation aids and live links to a Cumulative Bibliography (via the International Medieval Bibliography and the Bibliographie de civilisation médiévale).
