The complete corpus of medieval translations of the works of Aristotle. The Latin versions of these texts constituted the main tools for the study of science and philosophy in the Middle Ages. (Brepols)
Aristoteles Latinus has been published in print since 1961 with the aim of bringing attention to the ways in which Aristotle came to be read in the West through presentation of critical editions of Latin translations of his texts ranging from the 6th to 13th centuries. ALD includes all primary texts from the print edition, but excludes the critical apparatus, prefaces, and indices. In addition to an interface which allows browsable access to entire works, specific passages retrieved via search may be downloaded in PDF format. ALD is included in the Cross Database Searchtool (http://clt.brepolis.net/cds/pages/Search.aspx).
A growing image database of medieval and renaissance manuscripts that unites scattered resources from many institutions into an international tool for teaching and scholarly research. Among the participating institutions to this project are the Bancroft Library, the Robbins Collection, and the Hargrove Music Library at UC Berkeley, Columbia University, and the New York Public Library.
In 2006 new texts were added to the Corpus, many of them among the largest and most significant monuments of Middle English, including the Wycliffite Bible, both versions of Higden's Polychronicon, Cursor Mundi,, both versions of Guy of Warwick, the chronicles of Robert Mannyng and Robert of Gloucester, two versions of Mandeville's travels, Hoccleve's Regiment of Princes, the A, B, and C texts of Piers Plowman, the Pricke of Conscience, the Ormulum, and numerous saints' legends, including the Laud MS of the South English Legendary. The new texts also include the complete Chaucer Society '6-text' edition of the Canterbury Tales. The bulk of these additional texts, transcribed from modern editions, were produced during 2000 thanks to a generous grant from the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.
The GMS spans one thousand years (600-1600) of literary production across the medieval world (Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia). It contains primarily short texts of broad interdisciplinary interest in a variety of genres, and many of the texts have not previously been translated into English. All texts in the compendium are downloadable as TEI-XML files to allow for computational or other analysis.
The Piers Plowman Electronic Archive, a collaborative open-access project, presents the rich textual tradition of Piers Plowman, a fourteenth-century allegorical dream vision attributed to William Langland. Three distinct versions of the poem (A, B, and C) survive in more than 50 unique manuscripts, none in Langland's own hand. The Archive enables instructors, students, and researchers to explore late medieval literary and manuscript culture through the many variations of Piers Plowman.

Based on The index of Christian art, a thematic and iconographic index of early Christian and medieval art objects begun at Princeton University in 1917. As of July 1, 2017, the Index of Christian Art became The Index of Medieval Art. The change reflects the broad evolution of the institution's scope and mission since its founding in 1917, when its work was limited to cataloguing religious themes and subjects in early Christian art up to 700 C.E. A century later, records have expanded to encompass both religious and secular imagery, including Jewish and Islamic works, from the first centuries of the Common Era until the sixteenth century.
