Thanks to the Seeley Historical Library, the Connell Fund and the ebooks@cambridge Service, the Manchester Medieval Sources Online collection is now available for Cambridge University registered users. This series has been in existence for over 20 years and is an authoritative publication for expert translation of medieval primary sources that would otherwise be inaccessible to students and scholars alike.
This collection provides translations of key sources that are directly usable in student’s own work, with full, accessible contextual introductions and helpful annotations throughout. From the terror of the Black Death to the drama of the Norman invasion, these books provide texts central to medieval studies courses and focuses on the diverse cultural and social, as well as political conditions that affected the functioning of all levels of medieval society.
There are currently 32 titles in the series, and these will be updated with 2 new publications annually. This series is very useful for teaching and for research, in the case of translated chronicles and particularly the ‘selected texts,’ which typically provide an accessible ‘slice’ through a variety of unpublished archival material. The series is edited by Dr Rosemary Horrox (University of Cambridge) and Professor Simon MacLean (University of St Andrews) and has had other editorial contributions from other Cambridge faculty.
The records for the MMSO titles will appear in iDiscover in early December. In the meantime you may access the collection both on and off campus from here or from the link on the ebooks@cambridge collections web page. If you have any questions or feedback on this ebook collection please contact the ebooks team at email@example.com.
