“Classics in the Middle Ages” by Michael Herren

Earlier this year Michael Herren published an extensive annotated bibliography “Classics in the Middle Ages” with Oxford Bibliographies Online. This is a highly useful research tool that deals primarily with the transmission and reception in western Europe of classical Greek and Latin texts written before 525 CE, and focuses on the Latin tradition. The chronological limits observed here are 525 CE–c. 1400 CE. As the description remarks “the overarching aim of the entry is to highlight the achievement of the Latin Middle Ages in preserving the ancient classics and appropriating them for new uses in a Christian civilization.”

Congratulations, Michael, for having created this incredible research tool! We encourage everyone to check it out. (Users outside of the UofT intranet will have to login through the UofT library website.)
