NEW ISSUE OF MARGINALIA: Vol. 17 -- Volume XVII, November 2013

Welcome -- This website has been created by graduate students of medieval English literature at the University of Cambridge. Although much of the material and resources presented on these pages is directed towards the study of the literature of the Middle Ages, we intend that this site will evolve into both a useful collection of resources and also a point of contact for medievalists both at Cambridge and around the world who are engaged in the study of medieval English literature, history, culture, and thought.
