  • Internet Medieval Sourcebook, edited by Paul Halsall and located at the Fordham University Center for Medieval Studies. The site is divided into five categories: Maps and Images, Selected Sources, Full Texts, Law Texts, Saints' Lives.
  • Monastic Matrix is an ongoing collaborative effort by an international group of scholars (medieval history, religion, history of art, archaeology, religion), librarians, and computer techs to document the participation of Christian women in the religion and society of medieval Europe. In particular, their goal is to collect and make available all existing data about all professional Christian women in Europe between 400 and 1600 C.E. The site lists communities and offers primary and secondary texts, images, biographies, and bibliographies.
  • Virtual Humanities Lab at Brown University links four projects that offer digital texts and multimedia resources for the study and teaching of Italian literature, history and culture: Decameron Web, Progetto Pico, Florentine Renaissance Resources, and The Theater That Was Rome.
  • Corsair is an online research resource containing thousands of digital images from The Pierpont Morgan Library's collection of ten centuries of illuminated medieval and Renaissance manuscripts from all the major scriptoria. The more than 20,000 images may be browsed under subject, country, or time period headings or searched individually.
  • Gateway Site:
    • The Labyrinth: Resources for Medieval Studies provides free, organized access to electronic resources in medieval studies through a World Wide Web server at Georgetown University. The site is searchable by category, sub-category, type of materials, and/or keyword; its menus and links provide connections to databases, services, texts, images and videos on other servers around the world.
