Revue de l'Orient Latin

  (Redirected from Société de l'Orient Latin)

The Revue de l'Orient Latin is a 12-volume set of medieval documents which was published from 1893–1911. It was a continuation of the Archives de l'Orient Latin, two volumes of which were published from 1881–1884. Various medieval documents and letters from the sets are often cited in scholarly works about the Crusades. The Revue is often abbreviated ROL and the "Archives" are abbreviated AOL, but often the two groups of documents are referred to together.

The Archives were published in Paris. The Revue was the official journal of the archaeological foundation "Société de l'Orient latin" founded in 1875 by Count Paul Riant (1836–1888),[1] and was published at the society's headquarters in Geneva. Initial publications were divided into geographical and historical series. The geographical portions contained the itineraries of pilgrims. The historical series included chronicles, letters, and charters.
