The Luminarium

An anthology of English literature from Medieval to 18th century authors  Luminarium gives biography, quotes, works, essays and articles, and various study resources.

Luminarium Encyclopedia provides historical contexts for the people, places, and events featured.

Reader Brenda Turner calls it an amazing site where one can even download free e-books of favourite historical authors. "It's not strictly genealogical in its orientation, but it can inform one from a background perspective of the political, economic, and social influences under which our ancestors lived at various times in the UK."

Thanks for the tip Brenda.
