Some volumes in the Dallas Medieval Texts and Translations series

Dallas Medieval Texts and Translations is a book series sponsored by the University of Dallas and published by Peeters, a publishing house based in Louvain, Belgium. Modeled upon the Loeb Classical Library, the Dallas series has the goal "to build a library of medieval Latin texts, with English translations, from the period roughly between 500 and 1500, that will represent the whole breadth and variety of medieval civilization."[1] The editorial board of the series is composed of several medievalists from the University of Dallas and Southern Methodist University; Philipp W. Rosemann, a professor of philosophy at UD, has the overall responsibility. Members of an international board of editorial advisers review manuscripts submitted to the series to ensure their quality.[2]

The first volume of the series appeared in 2002; as of June, 2013, nineteen volumes have been published, while twenty more are in preparation.[3] In November, 2010, Harvard University Press launched a similar project, the Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library. It is different from the Dallas series in that it also publishes texts in Byzantine Greek and Old English.
