Middle Ages for Educators

Our colleagues Laura Morreale, Merle Eisenberg, and Sara McDougall, with support from the Haskins Society, have just launched a new website, “Middle Ages for Educators,” to aid with digital learning and education during the challenges posed by COVID-19. This is a brilliant resource for educators, students, and all interested in medieval studies.

Global Medieval Sourcebook

“The Global Medieval Sourcebook (GMS) is a free, open access, and open source teaching and research tool. It offers a flexible online display for the parallel viewing of medieval texts in their original language, in new English translations, and in their digitized manuscript form.” (Global Medieval Sourcebook)
