The Medieval Period

Annotated's purpose is to produce free annotated and critical editions of the best works ever written. These include both those in the canon as well as lesser-known (though equally valuable) works. This is an ongoing and lifelong project, so we appreciate your support in helping us realize this goal. We rely entirely on the support of generous donors and volunteers to produce our editions, so please consider contributing to our mission in any way you can.


Below are the titles of Medieval texts that Annotated has produced editions on or is in the process of editing, along with suggested resources for each of those texts. We prioritize the production of our editions according to the texts most commonly used in middle school, high school, and college classrooms as well as those for which we receive sponsorship and frequent requests.


If there is not currently an edition available here for the text you seek (either listed or not listed), please use this form to request it and we will prioritize it accordingly. If you are a scholar and wish to contribute to an edition of a Medieval text, please use the same form. If you are interested in sponsoring an edition for immediate production, please contact us at Thank you for supporting our mission to make knowledge free!
