Library of Congress Subject Headings
The following Library of Congress Subject Headings may be used when searching PantherCAT, WorldCat, or other library catalogs:
Civilization - Medieval
You may also subdivide other subject headings by time period, as in the following examples:
Biography - Middle Ages
Europe - history - 476-1492
And don't forget that you can do a subject search on your chosen philosopher by name:
Abelard, Peter (lastname, firstname)
The primary scholarly source for journal articles in Philosophy is the Philosopher's Index, available through the EBSCOhost system.
In Philosopher's Index, the approved subject heading for the time period is "Medieval." You may combine "Medieval" as a subject in combination with other subject headings of your choice to narrow your results to articles with a focus on that time period, as in this example:
If searching for an individual philosopher as the subject of an article, be sure to use the "People as Subjects" search field, as in the following example:
Please note that Philosopher's Index is a citation/abstract index only, and does not include the full-text of articles. Some full-text linking to other databases within the EBSCOhost system may be provided, but you will need to rely on the SFX tool to track down access to full-text of the article (whether electronic or in print).
Additional scholarly articles in Philosophy can be found in Academic Search Premier, JSTOR, and Project MUSE.
