Dear co-medievalists,

The University of Paris-Sorbonne is proud to announce the release of a new version of the Musicastallis online database, located on new servers :

This website illustrates and describes more than 850 scenes carved in medieval choir stalls from Europe. This new version improves greatly the user experience by allowing iconographical sources comparision, internal and external links towards other choir stalls ensembles, UTF-8 support for multilingual requests, analogical scenes proposition, a complete bibliography, a bilingual lexicon and thematical slideshows.

The English version is partially available, but still being translated. The fully working version is currently in French.
