The 10th Anniversary of the Dallas Medieval Text Series

2012 marks the ten year anniversary of the commencement of a capacious publishing project in the area of Medieval Studies.  In ten short years, The Dallas Medieval Text Series, under the sturdy editorial guidance of Dr. Philipp Rosemann, has brought twelve substantial medieval works into English, with three more soon to be released.  The volumes are published by Peeters Press in Louvain, Belgium.  Congratulations to Dr. Rosemann and his collaborators for their outstanding work.  Below is some further information from the project’s website:

Launched in 2002, the Dallas Medieval Texts and Translations series pursues an ambitious goal: to build a library of medieval Latin texts, with English translations, from the period roughly between 500 and 1500, which will represent the whole breadth and variety of medieval civilization. Thus, the series is open to all subjects and genres, ranging from poetry and history through philosophy, theology, and rhetoric to treatises on natural science. It will include, as well, medieval Latin versions of Arabic and Hebrew works. Placing these texts side by side, rather than dividing them in terms of the boundaries of contemporary academic disciplines, will, we hope, contribute to a better understanding of the complex coherence and interrelatedness of the many facets of medieval written culture.
