EJIW
Brill Online Reference Works
Description

The Encyclopedia of Jews in the Islamic World (EJIW) covers an area of Jewish history, religion, and culture which until now has lacked its own cohesive/discreet reference work. The Encyclopedia aims to fill the gap in academic reference literature on the Jews of Muslim lands particularly in the late medieval, early modern and modern periods. EJIW Online will be updated twice yearly with newly commissioned articles, illustrations, multimedia, and primary source material. The Outright Purchase price includes substantial additions of material in 2011 and 2012 (photographs, audio files, primary sources).

Library of Latin Texts - Series B

Alternative Titles
Library of Latin Texts - Series B (LLT-B)
CETEDOC Library of Christian Latin Texts
CLCLT
Brepolis
Description

Supplement to LLT-A. With an initial production of almost 7 million words and a projected growth of 4-5 million words annually, the LLT-B will develop at a faster pace than the LLT-A. In order to make this possible, the material which makes up the LLT-B is taken directly from existing editions (whereas the LLT-A is the product of intensive research work). The Library of Latin Texts – Series B gathers Latin texts of all genres and all periods. The data will therefore be very diverse, and will include genres as varied as chronicles, medieval saints’ lives and travel narratives, legal texts, and theological, philosophical and scientific treatises from the early-modern period. Above all, the emphasis will be on the online availability of large corpora of texts.
