    New Resources for Medieval Studies

    Hello, Everyone! A friend of mine posted an article on Facebook the other day about obscure Medieval texts which have been translated and posted online as part of Stanford's Global Medieval Sourcebook. As I am teaching a section of History of Civilization to 1500 this semester it immediately caught my attention. What is really exciting about this project is its attempt to offer a global perspective. This first release has material from China to France. The images alone are fantastic! It is also a collaborative project that seeks to have scholars help supply context to the documents. If you are interested, check out the project here.


    Let me know what you think about this new resource in the comments below. We will be adding a full review of this new resource in the near future! 


    About Jonathan

    I am currently an Adjunct Professor of History at Lynchburg College in Virginia. I received my PhD in Modern British History from Florida State University in 2016. My research explores the way in which competing definitions of masculinity influenced army reform in the mid-nineteenth century. Civilians called for moral reforms; however, they were constantly hampered by politician and military officials' financial concerns. This work offers a number of interventions in the current historiography by exploring issues of corporal punishment, soldiers' sexuality, military suicide, and soldiers' families.
