Bloomsbury Medieval Studies brings together high-quality secondary content with visual primary sources, a brand new reference work and material culture images into one cross-searchable platform.

Highlights include:

  • Fully-searchable access to a broad range of over 150 scholarly books including primary texts, research monographs, companions and more.
  • The Encyclopedia of the Global Middle Ages, a new and exclusive reference work.
  • Exceptional visual sources, including newly-digitized and rare incunabula from Senate House Library, high-resolution medieval maps from the British Library, and 1000 images from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
  • A growing selection of study resources curated by major scholars.
  • An interactive timeline with a global focus, placing image and text content from across the resource within their time and geographical region.

You can access this database via E-resources trials.
Access is available on and off-campus.
Trial access ends 6th November 2019.
Feedback welcome.

Access is only available to current students and staff at University of Edinburgh.

Please note, trial access to a resource is an opportunity for our staff and students to try a resource out and give feedback on its quality and usefulness. However, if we trial a resource this is not an indication that we plan to or will be able to purchase or subscribe to the resource in the near future.
