There is a motif-index for folk-literature composed by Stith Thompson. I wonder if there is a similar index regrouping fables by the moral they convey? As a rough example

EDIT: I'm indeed looking for a scholarly index, but other relevant sources are welcomed.

  • TVTROPES WARNING tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AnAesop is relevant – what you call a "moral" TvTrope calls an "Aesop".

  • That's an interesting question. I assume you are looking for a scholarly index rather than that TVTropes has. If that is the case, I recommend making that explicit in your question.
