Database of Latin Dictionaries searches across over 20 dictionaries of the Latin language (including Latin-English and Latin-French dictionaries). These include dictionaries of Latin in Antiquity, the Patristic Period, and the Middle Ages and Early Modern Period, as well as thematic, linguistic, and medieval dictionaries. You may search within the dictionary texts themselves or using the CTLO classification of lemmas (word roots). You may also limit your search to specific dictionaries. The database is regularly updated with corrections and addenda, and new dictionaries are occasionally added.

Most of the dictionaries in this collection first appeared in print in the 19th and 20th centuries.
