Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library

The Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library (est. 2010) is a series of books published by Harvard University Press in collaboration with the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection. It presents editions of texts originally written in medieval Latin, Byzantine Greek, and Old English, with facing-page translations into modern English. The aim is to make such texts accessible to English-speaking scholars and general readers.

The general editor of the series is Jan M. Ziolkowski. The language editors are Daniel Donoghue (Old English), Danuta Shanzer (Medieval Latin), and Alice-Mary Talbot (Byzantine Greek).

The series is a sister of three others published by Harvard University Press: Loeb Classical Library, I Tatti Renaissance Library, and Murty Classical Library of India.[1]
