Are there any kinds of full-text primary sources from the medieval period you  would be interested in seeing published online, whether it be in its original language or in an English translation?

I prefer Hungarian , but English is better than the original language. There are plenty of languages which I cannot understand.

Niketas Choniates, I would like to see his works online. I have tried hard to find copies but the libraries in my area are not stocked with his work. The references to it in secondary sources make it even more desireable to get my hands on it.

Oh, lord, there's a question. 

I suppose asking for the entire MGH is not possible?

I'll be back.

Unfortunately, I haven't found any early enough translations of Niketas Choniates yet (I'm looking for translations prior to 1910 that are now in the public domain).

What does MGH stand for?

Monumenta Germanica Historiae

A Medieval Source collection--been around for about a century.  It's just huge.  Speaking of huge, how about Minge's "Patrilogae Latina"?

The "Patrilogae Latina" is available online....but it is not free. I had to obtain a papal encyclical for a paper from it and had to get a professor to get a trial subscription so that he could access the database and get what I needed. It would be wonderful if there was free access to this source.

Sorry to interrupt with an advertisment for the AE project, but just to let you all know, I also plan to gather primary sources for the AE site, as well as secondary sources with expired copyright. This project hasn't started but it will once the current development projects are completed.

So if you have in mind a good primary source not avaiable on the internet, please let me know.

The website for De Re Militari: The Society for Medieval Military History
(www.deremilitari.org) has an extensive selection of primary sources. I am
the editor of the website, so if there are sources you think we should add,
please let me know.

At the moment I'm looking for hebrew manuscripts written in Piriney peninsula - Al Andaluz period. But I need their digital images - not transcription. The translation would be helpful but only in addition to digital image. BTW does anyone have possibility to publish manuscripts?
