  • Description Searchable, full-text scholarly editions and translations of medieval Latin dictaminal texts from Alberic of Monte Cassino into the 13th century. Whereas the primary focus is on texts relating to the preparation and writing of charters, the content is actually much broader. Includes the Opera omnia of Boncompagno of Signa (1194-1243) and older Teubner editions of two ancient Latin forerunners: the Rhetorica ad Herennium and Cicero's De inventione. Medieval sources and analogues (in French, German, and Latin) for Boncompagno are also available from this site, which is under construction. (Updates vary)
