Mediae Latinitatis Lexicon Minus (2 vols.)
J.F. Niermeyer and C. van de Kieft. Revised by J.W.J. Burgers
Niermeyer's Mediae Latinitatis Lexicon Minus is a highly practical lexicon, providing researchers, teaching staff and students in the field of Medieval History with concise, essential information.
This new edition is still the “compendious lexicon for rapid information” envisaged by Niermeyer, but current entries and definitions have been revised and new entries have been added. Furthermore, the dictionary is now enhanced with German definitions and therefore provides French, English and German translations for every entry of a Medieval Latin concept. All entries are contextualized with relevant text passages.
In view of the new entries and additional German definitions, the new edition is bound into two durable hardback volumes.
The Niermeyer Lexicon Minus has proved to be invaluable to medievalists for almost 50 years and is an indispensable working tool for academic libraries.An online version is also available: see for details
