Dictionary of Medieval Latin (MLW)


Reference List

All references – shorter texts (the so-called opera minora) excluded, dispersed a.o. in the editions of  the Monumenta Germaniae Historica (MGH, online accessible via www.dmgh.de) – are compiled in the MLW reference list. Its second printing was released in 1991 by Publishers C.H. Beck and can be obtained in book stores.

An online version of the reference list is available in the digital MLW.

Updates of the reference list will be continuously published with the release of each new fascicle (on the inside of the back cover). You can also download it here.
