About us

The Anglo-Norman Text Society is a learned society which was founded in 1937 by Professor Mildred K. Pope with the aim of promoting the study of Anglo-Norman by publishing a series of texts of literary, linguistic, historical and legal value and interest. For more than seventy years, its series of annual publications (supplemented since 1983 with a Plain Texts Series and an Occasional Publications Series) has succeeded in making available to specialist scholars and other medievalists a broad range of editions of Anglo-Norman texts. The joint publication (with the Modern Humanities Research Association) of an Anglo-Norman Dictionary, first initiated by Louise Stone in 1945, was completed in 1992. A revised edition of this has been available online since 2006 at http://www.anglo-norman.net/.

We are always glad to hear of new and ongoing research in Anglo-Norman studies, and maintain records of work in the field. Please feel free to share details of your projects with the Hon. Secretary.
