- An Analytic Bibliography
of On-line Neo-latin Texts. Dana F. Sutton. Irvine, CA: University of California,
Irvine. Summary: " The enormous profusion of literary texts posted on
the World Wide Web will no doubt strike future historians as remarkable
and important. But this profusion brings with it an urgent need for many
specialized on-line bibliographies. The present one is an analytic bibliography
of Latin texts written during the Renaissance and later that are freely
available to the general public on the Web (texts posted in access-restricted
sites, and Web sites offering electronic texts and digitized photographic
reproductions for sale are not included). Only original sites on which texts
are posted are listed here, and not mirror sites. This page was first posted
January 1, 1999 and most recently revised on March 6, 2004. The reader may
be interested to know that it currently lists 9014." Date added: 2002-09-08.

written in Latin script and produced up to c. 1550 now preserved in

the collections of libraries, museums and archives, as well as the
collections of monastic orders and some other private institutions that
are open to researchers. There is no restriction concerning content:
literary, historiographical, academic, hagiographical, and
(para-)liturgical texts, artes texts, ego-documents etc. written in
Latin or one of the Western European vernacular languages, all qualify
for inclusion. Fragments of such manuscripts will only be included when
this is feasible and useful: the text on the fragment has to be
identified and/or the fragments should already be sufficiently
catalogued as an object. Archival documents and letters are not
recorded, except when they are part of a manuscript that does qualify
for inclusion." Date accessed: 2007-09-23. Date added: 2007-09-23.
