Encyclopedia of Ancient History

New on eresources@cambridge A-Z : Encyclopedia of Ancient History

A fountain at The Pantheon Rome

The only comprehensive collection of twenty-first century scholarship available on the entire ancient Mediterranean world. Over 5,000 original entries spanning the late Bronze Age through the seventh century CE. Entries extend to all Mediterranean civilizations, including the Near East and Egypt, and represent an unprecedented level of coverage of the ancient world.

“This is an encyclopedia of Ancient History, but one which moves well beyond the traditional confines of Greek and Roman history to embrace the Ancient Near East, Bronze and Iron Age Greece, Jewish history, and Pharaonic Egypt. Too often these various areas have been treated in isolation. This is the first encyclopedia to make Ancient History in this extended sense its focus. It enables connections to be drawn across cultures and allows readers to gain an understanding of the close relationships that existed among the civilizations of the broad geographical span from western Europe to Iran, including a chronological span from the Neolithic through the eighth century CE. Our concept of history is similarly inclusive, ranging from social and cultural to political, economic, and intellectual history.” – Introduction

Abbreviationes online

New on eresources@cambridge A-Z : Abbreviationes online

Cremona, the Cathedral

Abbreviationes Online is a database designed to help researchers in the identification and expansion of abbreviations of Latin words that are found in Medieval and Renaissance manuscripts and early printed books.

These abbreviations – obtained by contraction, elision, initialism of the words or the use of symbols – were commonly employed by Western scribes from the late Antiquity to the Renaissance when copying Latin texts by hand.  They were also used in the reproduction of Latin texts in European printed books from the middle of the 15th century onwards.

Latin was the common language of literacy in Western Europe from the Roman Antiquity to the Renaissance.  It was the language of religious and liturgical texts, philosophical, historical, legal and scientific treatises, literary texts and legal charters and deeds.  The ability to read and interpret correctly the primary sources of these texts – both in manuscript and in print – is therefore of paramount importance for any researcher, scholar, student and librarian working on any given subject relating to the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

Abbreviationes Online provides an excellent online tool for the reading and understanding of such texts, supplanting and expanding the traditional printed dictionaries of abbreviations such as Walther, Chassant, Wright and Cappelli.

The database offers multiple search options which allow flexible and complex searches (through wildcard search and fuzzy expert system)

(Click on the images below to increase resolution.)




The results are displayed as lists,


detailed cards, which provide date and location of the first known appearance of the abbreviation among those listed in the database,


or detailed tables, which provide date and location of all the abbreviation instances listed in the database


The database is easily accessible through computers, laptops and smartphones as it is supported by all the main online browsers, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and Google Chrome and their mobile versions.

Annually updated and enhanced, the database is not only the ideal resource tool for any researcher, scholar, student and librarian of medieval and Renaissance written culture, but also the perfect teaching aid for the palaeographical preparation of scholars and researchers of the future.
