The Dictionary of Old English defines the vocabulary of the first six centuries (AD 600–1150) of the English language, using twenty-first century technology. The DOE complements the Middle English Dictionary (which covers the period 1100–1500) and the Oxford English Dictionary, the three together providing a full description of the vocabulary of English. It is available online and in print.
The Dictionary also produces a series of research tools and studies in the Publications of the Dictionary of Old English.
Fons Luminis is an interdisciplinary journal of Medieval Studies run by graduate students of the Centre for Medieval Studies. It provides graduate student medievalists with a forum in which they can write short articles to address, challenge, and explore not only the content of Medieval Studies, but also the methodologies of our various home disciplines.
The Journal of Medieval Latin has been established by a group of Canadian scholars for the purpose of encouraging new and original investigations in the field of Medieval Latin language and literature. It also produces the Publications of the Journal of Medieval Latin as a venue for original book-length studies in the general field of Medieval Latin language and literature.
