At the end of your dissertation you must add a bibliography of all works that you have cited. Do not list works which you have consulted but not referred to explicitly. The bibliography must be in alphabetical order of authors’ or editors’ surnames. Individual entries should follow the same format as the first reference in your notes, except that the author’s surname is listed first and the forename (or initials) second. You should not include page numbers or page references in the bibliography except for articles, where you must cite the page range, i.e. the first and last page number of the whole article, separated by a hyphen.
There are several styles for bibliographical entries and, as for footnotes, you should consult your dissertation supervisor, who will recommend the most appropriate for your dissertation. Again, as for footnotes, a simple and safe trick is to follow the style used in a recent book or article published by a reputable scholarly press, for example, Oxford University Press or Cambridge University Press.
The following are some examples:
- Brou, Louis, O.S.B., ‘Les chants en langue grecque dans les liturgies latines’, Sacris erudiri, 1 (1948), pp. 251-286.
- Castiglioni, Arturo, ‘The School of Ferrara and the Controversy on Pliny’, in E. Ashworth Underwood (ed.), Science, Medicine and History, 2 vols, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1953, vol. 1, pp. 243-281.
- Flynn, Frederick E., Wealth and Money in the Economic Thought of St Thomas. Notre Dame, Ind.: Notre Dame Press, 1942.
- McCulloch, Florence, Medieval Latin and French Bestiaries. Chapel Hill: The University of North Carolina Press, 1962.
If you have cited manuscripts or archival sources, you should list them separately at the beginning of the bibliography.
