The section on
Old French aims at encompassing everything that is legitimately considered
pertinent to the subject, from the history of the language to the literature
in particular fields, e.g. medieval culture in French produced in England.
However, we do not think that SPOLIA need emulate any of the eight existing
bibliographical indexes. Rather, we would like to disseminate information
of a qualitatively important nature.
Anyone wishing to participate by submitting suggestions, advice and pieces of information on topics relevant to the field of study is invited to do so, because we would like our work to be a focal point for contributions and variously directed information, a sort of work site that provides a meeting place for scholars.
