Project Details

Funding: 2470000 SEK


The project A New Bibliography of Old Swedish aims at creating a comprehensive, current bibliography of monographs, articles in journals and miscellany volumes (conference proceedings, essay collections or Festschriften) and editions of original texts covering all published research relating to Old Swedish text, and making it accessible on the internet.
It will include the existing Fornsvensk bibliografi by Robert Geete and Isak Collijn, published by Svenska fornskriftsällskapet, as well as all relevant publications from 1945–2010.

All publications will be fully classified by the categories used by Geete and Collijn and full bibliographical records will be provided.

The detailed and specialized classification combined with a user-friendly interface will facilitate extensive search possibilities. The Bibliography of Old Swedish will be an unparalleled tool for all humanities scholars with an interest in Swedish medieval language, society, culture, literature, religion and art.

The bibliography will be available free of charge on its own website. See www.nordiska.su.se.
