The following list of frequently cited authorities is mainly intended to assist in minimising the amount of bibliographic material required in individual entries in the database. Where a text from this list is cited in an entry, only the abbreviation will be entered; the full bibliographic details are listed here. The Works Cited at the end of individual entries contains only those texts which are cited in the entry but do not appear in this masterlist of staple texts. We make no claims to bibliographical completeness with the following list, and are willing to consider further inclusions of high-use items as recommended by database users.
