"This book represents an early fruit of one of the British Academy's most prestigious research projects, the compilation of a comprehensive Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources ... Baxter and Johnson's Medieval Latin Word-List from British and Irish Sources appeared in 1934 and was reprinted five times. The distinguished lexicographer, R.E. Latham based this Revised Word-List on a re-examination of the material previously used, and supplemented it with new material from a wide range of sources -- more than doubling the number of words covered"--Jacket

Over a twelve-year period a distinguished supervisory committee from the University of Oxford, with a grant from the British Academy, has coordinated the work of 10,000 specialists worldwide to recreate one of the great English reference works.

The 1989 revolutions in Central and Eastern Europe : from communism to pluralism by Kevin McDermott( )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important book reassesses a defining historical, political and ideological moment in contemporary history : the 1989 revolutions in Central and Eastern Europe. Adopting a multi-disciplinary approach, the authors reconsider such crucial themes as the broader historical significance of the 1989 events, the complex interaction between external and internal factors in the origins and outcomes of the revolutions, the impact of the 'Gorbachev phenomenon', the West and the end of the Cold War, the political and socio-economic determinants of the revolutionary processes in Poland, Hungary, the German Democratic Republic, Czechoslovakia, Romania and Bulgaria, and the competing academic, cultural and ideological perceptions of the year 1989 as communism gave way to post-communist pluralism in the 1990s and beyond. Concluding that the contentious term 'revolution' is indeed apt for the momentous developments in eastern Europe in 1989, this book will be essential reading for undergraduates, postgraduates and specialists alike."--Publisher's description

Our modern conception of the Renaissance has been changed substantially by the scholarship of the last 50 years, and the British contribution to this research has been enormous. An essential part of this scholarship is contained within this lavishly illustrated selection of lectures delivered by distinguished historians to the British Academy. The lectures cover the period circa 1400 to 1520 and illustrate two aspects of Italy in this period, the political background to the great cultural flowering, and the art of Florence and Rome

Dictionary of medieval Latin from British sources by R. E Latham( Book )

19 editions published between 1975 and 2018 in English and Latin and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources (DMLBS) is the most comprehensive dictionary of Medieval Latin to have been produced and the first ever to focus on British Medieval Latin. Covering a particularly long period stretching from Gildas (fl. 540) to William Camden (1600), it is wholly based on original research, that is to say on the close reading of thousands of Medieval Latin texts, both literary and documentary. This has been carried out specifically for the purpose of recording their distinctive lexical characteristics, and, as far as possible, using the best available sources, whether original manuscripts or modern critical editions. It is also based on systematic searches within computer databases, including the Library of Latin Texts (LLT-A and LLT-B), where many of the texts can be found that make up the sources for the DMLBS

A thematic catalogue of the works of Michel-Richard de Lalande (1657-1726) by Lionel Sawkins( )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For 43 years (1683-1726), Lalande's music occupied a central position at the courts of Louis XIV and Louis XV, where his grands motets and instrumental suites set a style admired then and long after, both in the royal chapel and at the Paris Concert spirituel. Recent festivals at Versailles, as well as many editions, performances and recordings worldwide, underline the importance of Lalande as an undisputed master of the French Baroque. With over 3,000 music examples, details of performing requirements and of all source materials, as well as with comprehensive indexes and thematic locators, this Thematic Catalogue makes Lalande's compositions fully accessible to musicians, musicologists, and music lovers."--Jacket
Hexaëmeron by Robert Grosseteste( Book )

13 editions published between 1982 and 1999 in English and Latin and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studies in the ancient history of Northern Iraq by David Oates( Book )

8 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a facsimile reprint of the trail-blazing book by David Oates which has been out-of-print far too long. It is primarily the report of his survey and excavation of sites in northern Iraq between 1954 and 1958. But it is at the same time a memorial to the great explorer, Sir Aurel Stein, whose pioneer field-work on the Roman frontiers in Iraq in 1938-39 had provided the initial stimulus. Apart from preliminary summaries, this work remained unpublished in the difficult years between 1939 and Stein's death in Kabul in 1943." "Subsequent examination of Stein's draft-manuscript showed that further investigation and a more leisurely assessment were demanded by the range and importance of the subject and by changing perspectives. With the aid of the Stein bequest to the British Academy, David Oates gave new substance to 'the lost traveller's dream', extending it widely into a more general account of the Mesopotamian scene from the Assyrian period in the second millennium B.C. to the struggles of Rome and Byzantium with the Parthians and Sasanians in the early centuries A.D. The book concludes with a study of little-known Hellenistic, Roman and Parthian pottery, mostly from the author's excavations."--Jacket
