Translated Texts for Historians E-Library purchased

We have purchased the complete Translated Texts for Historians E-Library from our good friends on the other side of Abercromby Square, Liverpool University Press, on their MetaPress platform.

Access is available now. We will endeavour to activate them in SFX / find it @ liverpool so they can be found via Google Books and WorldCat, and they will be added to our catalogue and DISCOVER soon.

Translated Texts for Historians makes available sources translated from Greek, Latin, Syriac, Coptic, Arabic, Georgian and Armenian, published between 300 and 800 AD.  This period, from late antiquity to the early middle ages saw the transformation of the classical world, the beginnings of Europe and of Islam, and the evolution of Byzantium.  Each volume provides an expert scholarly translation, with an introduction setting texts and authors in context, and with notes on content, interpretation and debates.
