Old Norse Texts Online is a directory of electronic editions and translations of Old (West) Norse prose texts in the public domain. It is arranged alphabetically according to the standard abbreviated form of the original work’s title. Use the buttons at the top of the page to navigate between different letters.

The ‘Short Title’ column links to the description of the work found in the Dictionary of Old Norse Prose. The ‘edition’ column contains links, where available, to the separate editions and translations of each text. In the ‘language’ column, ‘ON’ represents the original text, regardless of its dialect. I hope the modern language abbreviations are self explanatory.

In some cases, the ‘edition’ link will take you to the beginning of a published collection of texts, rather than straight to the individual work listed here. I’ll try to update some of these links to make them more accurate in future.
