The Thesaurus Musicarum Latinarum (TML) is an evolving database that will eventually contain the entire corpus of Latin music theory written during the Middle Ages and the early Renaissance. It will complement but not in any way duplicate the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG), Thesaurus Linguae Latinae (TLL), Lexicon Musicum Latinum (LML), and similar projects such as the Center for Computer Analysis of Texts (CCAT).
