Medieval Sources online


What does it cover?

The online version of the Manchester University Press Medieval Sources series which aims to provide translations of key social and political sources. The basic premise of the series is that translations must be accompanied by sufficient introductory and explanatory material and each volume therefore includes a comprehensive guide to the sources' interpretation, including discussion of critical linguistic problems and an assessment of the most recent research on the topics being covered.
