Toronto Medieval Latin Texts

The Toronto Medieval Latin Texts series is published by CMS in collaboration with the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies. The series welcomes the submission of new texts, and proposals may be sent to the series editor, David Townsend.

The series provides pedagogically suitable and affordable editions for university-level courses in Medieval Latin. At the same time, it aims to further original research by publishing texts hitherto unedited. In the case of texts multiply witnessed, it offers reliable single-manuscript versions of particular textual, historical, and codicological interest and importance. The series takes the position that scribal makers of such versions were important participants in the ongoing development of the text. The manuscript witness is emended only to restore sense, rather than trying to reconstruct an original authorial version. Manuscript orthography and syntax are carefully preserved. Each volume includes an introduction, a select bibliography, annotation, and (if necessary) a glossary.
