Byzantine & Medieval Studies Sites
BYZANTINE & MEDIEVAL LINKS INDEXNotice: until this list is updated, please use www.netserf.org[March 2001: this list is now quite out dated. Many links are dead, and there are hundreds of of additional resources around. Manual maintence of this list long ago became unfeasible. I do intend to update it, once I have located good links management software.] This page attempts to track ALL Byzantine material on the Internet, and ALL significant entry points for Medieval studies. Ancient and Classical links, except insofar as they impinge directly on Byzantine and Western Medieval matters, should be sought out via the direct links provided to  ARGOS associates which track and maintain sites devoted to the Ancient world. Since this page was begun, the Medieval and Byzantine Internet has exploded in size. As a result, although I will take suggestions, I will no longer add the following materials:
  • Syllabi for courses, unless the page contains additional material - texts, graphics, lecture notes.
  • History Department sites, unless the page contains additional material - texts, graphics (etc.)
  • Sites at geocities, or any other free web site which forcibly opens pop up windows.
  • AOL sites, which seem to last just a few weeks on average.
  • Sites which do not look to be stable: e.g. temporary exhbition pages.
  • Sites for individual Orthodox or Easter Catholic churches, unless the page contains additional material (see above).
  • Gopher sites. Gopher is dead.
If you thought you once saw a website here, but its not here now, check the Dead Links Page! The structure of this set of World Wide Web Links is as follows. You can browse through the entire list, or jump directly to the part that interests you by selecting the underlined links.
WIDE AREA SEARCHES Here are links to the best "wide area" search engines on the Web. The Web is so vast now that it contains more, and more diverse information, than any single printed source. This availability of information will only increase. To use the Web efficiently, the various search engines are essential. Yahoo is best, I think, if you are looking for specialized websites. Lycos, Excite, and Hotbot all index many more documents. These engines will always turn up more references, but far more will be dross than with Yahoo. It is useful to start with Yahoo since it has a nice feature - once it tells you everything that it has found, it will automatically plug you in to the other search engines. It is important to form your query words as clearly as possible. For instance, if you are interested in finding information on a particular musician, do not search for "music", but for a style [eg "jazz" or "gregorian chant"] or even a name ["abba", "charlie parker", "hildegard"]. As the WWW has grown these wide area engines have become more difficult to use. Searching for "Plato" for instance, will return more "hits" than one could possibly read in a lifetime. For this reason it is best to start searches for Byzantine and Medieval subjects with the "limited area" ARGOS search engine.

Each source is described in 21 fields: identification number, type, language, author, status of the author, title, incipit, explicit, size, century, redaction (place, date, patron, dedication), abstract, manuscripts, editions, translations, sources, influence, literature, desiderata, name of the contributor of the record and update code.
