Unless I am missing the obvious, Migne does not appear to include the poems/hymns of Peter Damian. Does anyone have a source for a list of the titles? Medieval Latin is not where I am used to hunting for things.

His works were collected by Cardinal Cajetan, and were published in four volumes at Rome (1606–1615), and then at Paris in 1642, at Venice in 1743, and there are other editions.

That's the best I can do.

Thanks - that at least gives me another title to look for

The critical edition of Damian's poetry is the dissertation of Margareta Giordano Lokrantz (1935-2004): L’opera poetica di S. Pier Damiani (Stockholm, 1964)

After searching for "Damiani" in the Logos edition of A Dictionary of Hymnology I found the following references:

Ad Perennis Vitae Fontem Mens Sitivit AridaMigne, vol. 145, col. 861–864

Crux, mundi benedictio - Migne, vol. 145, col. 930

Gravi me terrore pulsas vitae dies ultimaMigne, vol. 145, col. 977, 978

Thank you HJ. That will give me much of what I needed. I have been surprised at how little Peter Damian is covered in English ... a chapter here and a chapter there, a handful of monographs, and less than half his works translated.
