The WWW Virtual Library ShopNotes Magazine - Woodworking Plans, Tips and Videos Nennius: Historia Brittonum, 8th century Back to Medieval Source Book | ORB Main Page | Links to Other Medieval Sites | Medieval Sourcebook: Nennius: Historia Brittonum, 8th century Nennius was an eighth-century historian who is a major source for tales of King Arthur. [see #56 below]. Unlike the much more careful Bede, Nennius was, as one modern historian writes "unrestrainedly inventive" [ Gerhard Herm, The Celts , [London, 1976], p. 275]. Not all of Nennius can be dismissed as he apparently had access to no-longer available 5th century sources, but neither can he be entirely trusted. 1. 2. For I yield to those who are greater and more eloquent than myself, who, kindled with generous ardour, have endeavoured by Roman eloquence to smooth the jarring elements of their tongue, if they have left unshaken any pillar of history which I wished to see remain. Here begins the apology of Nennius, the historiographer of the Britons, of the race of the Britons. 3. 4,5. 6. The first Julius. 7. 1. 18. 1 - In the J.A. 8. 9.

Free Library In January of 2011 we started posting free short stories we thought might be of interest to Baen readers. The first stories were "Space Hero" by Patrick Lundrigan, the winner of the 2010 Jim Baen Memorial Short Story Contest, and "Tanya, Princess of Elves," by Larry Correia, author of Monster Hunter International and set in that universe. As new stories are made available, they will be posted on the main page, then added to this book (to save the Baen Barflies the trouble of doing it themselves). This is our compilation of short stories for 2019. As is usual with such copyrighted material from Baen, the contents may be copied and shared but NOT sold. All commercial rights are reserved to Baen Books. The Testimony of the Traitor Ratul by Larry CorreiaToday I Remember by Martin L.

eText University of Virginia Library > Our Organization > The Electronic Text Center The Electronic Text Center (1992-2007), known to many as “Etext,” served the University community’s teaching and research needs in the areas of humanities text encoding for fifteen years. Many of the resources once available on Etext are now available via VIRGO, the Library’s online catalog and the primary access point for all U.Va. Library digital texts and images. In the course of migrating thousands of texts from Etext to VIRGO, we determined that certain resources were not eligible for inclusion, most often due to copyright issues. Many of the texts that were not migrated can be found among other university online text collections, Google Books, HathiTrust and Project Gutenberg. If you have questions about the location of older resources, please send your inquiry to Virgo Feedback.
