Online Medieval and Classical Library (OMACL)

A collection of approximately 35 public-domain searchable and downloadable English-language translations of major ancient Greek and Latin and medieval western European literary texts. Most are nineteenth to early twentieth century translations, but Tasso's Gerusalemme Liberata is the Renaissance English translation of Edward Fairfax. OMACL includes some Old English and Middle English writings in modern English versions. Selection leans heavily toward epic (broadly conceived). Individual writings are indexed by author, title, genre, and language of the original. (Updates vary)
