Manchester Medieval Sources Online - translations of key medieval texts

Medieval Sources Online provides translations of key first hand accounts central to medieval studies courses - many translated into English for the first time.   

They bring alive the reality of life in the medieval world and focus on the diverse cultural, social and political conditions that affected how all levels of medieval society worked.

This e-book series, which is published by Manchester University Press and co-edited by Professor Simon Maclean of the School of History, provides extensive introductory and explanatory material which assists the interpretation of these sources.

The 26 e-books in the new platform include:
