Balliol Charter 1361




Since work on the project first got under way in the 1920s the project has produced two major print publications.

The first stage of the project resulted in the production of the Medieval Latin Word-List, an interim guide to medieval Latin vocabulary in British and Irish sources, first published in 1934 and reprinted numerous times. This Word-List subsequently underwent a full revision and was released as the Revised Medieval Word-List in 1965 (with a further supplement added when it was reprinted in 1980).

After 1965 the project's output was the Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources itself. This was first published in alphabetical parts ('fascicules'), of which the first was published in 1975 and the last in 2013. A new consolidated three-volume printing, incorporating some additions and corrections, appeared in 2018. The Dictionary supersedes the Word-List.

The project has also made arrangements for the Dictionary's electronic publication.
