Royal Canon of Turin Reference Library

Most of the reference books and journal articles concerning the Royal Canon of Turin are old and hard to find, and most likely written in German, French, or Italian. Finding obscure out-of-print journals and books often require access to expensive services, and even if you manage to find it, it is written in a foreign language. This can be very frustrating, especially if that happen to be a much referenced text.

Below you will find these elusive texts—many appearing in English for the very first time.

The research of the scholars below varies in scope, from brief comments to fullfledged investigations that dig very deep into all the details. As the focus here is on the Royal Canon of Turin, only the relevant parts of the larger examinations are excerpted, while the shorter, more concise texts are presented in full. Always consult the original source – if possible.
