Guide to on-line Resources in Medieval Spirituality

Compiled by Prof. Scott DeGregorio


The purpose of this webpage is to collect materials from the WWW dealing with Medieval Christian Spirituality and present them on a single site. Because of the ever-changing nature of hypertext media, this site can never be more than a work- in- progress, and I hope that its viewers will be generous in offering advice towards its improvement. If you know of any materials on the WWW that should be posted here, please email me your suggestions.   I. Links to works by key figures in Medieval Spirituality
