Primary Sources and Manuscripts

Primary Sources: Arthurian

The Camelot Project: Author Menu

Very full selection of texts.  Includes histories, poems, prose, and drama; coverage from medieval to modern.  However, it often excerpts only the Arthurian portions of a given source, and it focuses exclusively on British sources.

The Early British Kingdoms 

 If you can't find what you're looking for at the Camelot Project's "Author Menu," try the Early British Kingdoms' Dark Age On-Line Sources.  It's particularly strong on Welsh sources, and Includes links to complete texts of the most important histories.   

Celtic Twilight: Online Arthurian Sources 

Includes both many standard sources as well as some quirky items (Bulfinch's King Arthur and the Age of Chivalry, Howard Pyle's The Story of King Arthur and His Knights, Henry Gilbert's King Arthur's Knights Retold for Girls and Boys, Jessie Weston's From Ritual to Romance -- the last at a different location: click here to access).  If you get inspired, you can also buy some Celtic jewelry.  

Primary Sources: Medieval and Ancient

The Internet Medieval Sourcebook

Part of the ORB, the Internet Medieval Sourcebook contains a massive collection of both complete texts and excerpts. Particularly strong collection of Saints' Lives.

Religious texts from Albertus Magnus to John Wesley.  The earliest sources are under a separate category, "Early Church Fathers" (which also includes early Christian writings such as the Diatesseron of Tatian).

Massive, searchable collection of a whole gamut of texts.  Here "you will find the classic books from the start of this century and previous centuries, from authors like Shakespeare, Poe, Dante, as well as well-loved favorites like the Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the Tarzan and Mars books of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Alice's adventures in Wonderland as told by Lewis Carroll, and thousands of others."

If it's not in copyright, you'll probably find it here.  If it's in copyright, you'll probably find excerpts.
