- An international project: This dictionary forms part of an international
project under the auspices of the Union Académique Internationale to
replace the old dictionary of medieval Latin, Glossarium Mediae et
Infimae Latinitatis
of DuCange (first published in 1688). Each European
country was to prepare its own dictionary based on its "national"
authors and sources.
- The first new dictionary completed: Publication of the dictionary began
in 1970, since when more than 60 fascicles have appeared. Complete in 2005
it will comprise 5300 folio pages.
- A record of word use: The importance of the Lexicon Latinitatis
Nederlandicae Medii Aevi
lies not just in recording and translating
Latin words but in bringing together many instances of use.
- A research tool: It is thus a research tool for historians, intellectual
historians and philologists, giving them a sense of the range of meaning of
words, of how writers of a particular time and place used a certain word,
and allowing them to better understand the authors whose works they are
- With broad European relevance: Latin was an international medium with
Latin correspondence, scholarship and literature circulating throughout
medieval Europe so that Lexicon Latinitatis Nederlandicae Medii Aevi
sheds much light on Latin in use far beyond the borders of the modern
