The enormous profusion of literary texts posted on the World Wide Web will no doubt strike future historians as remarkable and important. But this profusion brings with it an urgent need for many specialized on-line bibliographies. The present one is an analytic bibliography of Latin texts written during the Renaissance and later that are freely available to the general public on the Web (texts posted in access-restricted sites, and Web sites offering electronic texts and digitized photograpic reproductions for sale are not included).

This page was first posted January 1, 1999 and most recently updated on October 25, 2020 . The reader may be interested to know that it currenty contains 66,650 entries. I urge all those are able to suggest additions or corrections to this bibliography as well as those who post new texts on the Web, to inform me by e-mail, so that this bibliography can be kept accurate and up to date. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all the individuals who have supplied me with corrections and information. I extend especial thanks to Klaus Graf, Tommy Tyberg and J. R. Stockton, who are responsible for the addition of many hundreds of bibliographical items to this list.

A few further Neo-Latin online texts are omitted here becausean invalid URL address is provided. Over the passage of time, of course, some of the URL addresses given here may be changed or broken (alhtough site managers should avoid changing URL’s whenever possible, or failing that include some system of automatic redirection, once they are announced their posted items will, at least potentially, begin to be cited in scholarly citations). If you become aware of such difficulties, I would be grateful to have them drawn to my attention

NOTE: in addition to standard abbreviations, in this bibliography the special abbreviation dpr (“digitized photographic reproduction”) is employed; unless otherwise specified, the file in question is in PDF format. Other abbreviations used are: GDZ = Göttinger Digitalisierungszentrum; HAB = Herzog August Bibliothek, MDZ = Münchener Digitalisierungszentrum. It seems likely that you will need to have created a Google account in order to access Google Books items.

Access to post-1864 items on the Google Books and University of Michigan University Library sites appear to be at least partially blocked for residents of some or all non-US nations.
