The Bibliographie de civilisation médiévale (BCM) is a comprehensive, current bibliography of Monographs. The BCM has been established by the Centre d’Études Supérieures de Civilisation Médiévale (Université de Poitiers).

Scope and aims

The Bibliographie de civilisation médiévale aims to provide a comprehensive, current bibliography of monographs worldwide and listings of miscellany volumes (conference proceedings, essay collections or Festschriften). The Bibliographie de civilisation médiévale currently comprises 50,000 titles from 1958 to 2009; i.e. the whole of the relevant elements from the famous bibliography in the Cahiers de civilisation médiévale.

Every reference has been fully classified by date, subject and location, and provides full bibliographical records. The disciplines to which the Bibliographie de civilisation médiévale is relevant include all aspects of History, Language and Literature, Philosophy and Theology, Art History, Archaeology, and so forth in the Western, Byzantine and Islamic worlds.
