This page is meant to be a guide to resources available on the Web
for people who are interested in the history, culture, literature
and re-creation of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.
There are hundreds of sites on the Middle Ages on the Web.
I know I have only a small percentage of what is out there, but I have tried to
organize this site so that you will have an easier time finding what you want.
Please e-mail me
to let me know about good sites that I haven't included yet.
Welcome to my site. Feel free to explore, and please come back again, because I'm
always adding new resources to the list.

bibliography of translations of Medieval texts.
At the moment, access to all but a few of the on-line texts are restricted to
people affiliated with Stanford University.
