Cambridge Medieval Classics
- General Editor: Peter Dronke, University of Cambridge
This series is designed to provide bilingual editions of medieval Latin and Greek works of prose, poetry, and drama dating from the decline of the Roman empire to the rise of vernacular writing (roughly 350-1350). The original texts are offered on left-hand pages, with facing-page versions written in lively modern English, newly translated for the series. There are introductions as well as explanatory and textual notes.The Cambridge Medieval Classics series allows access, often for the first time, to outstanding writing of the Middle Ages, with an emphasis on texts that are representative of key literary traditions and that offer important insights into the culture of medieval Europe.
