NTVMR (New Testament Virtual Manuscript Room)

Homepage

Description

This site is devoted to the study of Greek New Testament manuscripts. The New Testament Virtual Manuscript Room is a place where scholars can come to find the most exhaustive list of New Testament manuscript resources, can contribute to marking attributes about these manuscripts, and can find state of the art tools for researching this rich dataset.

While our tools are reasonably functional for anonymous users, they provide additional features and save options once a user has created an account and is logged in on the site. For example, registered users can save transcribed pages to their personal account and create personalized annotations to images.

Hildemar Project

Homepage

http://www.hildemar.org/

Description

The Hildemar Project is a collaborative translation project of Hildemar of Corbie’s Expositio in Regulam Sancti Benedicti, a 650 pages long sentence-by-sentence commentary to the Rule of Benedict.

The website presents the Latin text in the edition of Ruppert Mittermüller (Regensburg 1880) along with an English translation. The task of translating this work is shared by a group of about 50 classicists and medieval scholars. List of contributors.

The text will contain hyperlinks to other versions of the commentary and to digized manuscripts. The page contains a bibliography on Hildemar of Corbie and a discussion forum. The purpose of this project is to make Hildemar’s Commenatary, a key text for the history of monasticism, accessible to scholars and students. The presentation will facilitate students with very little knowledge of Latin to work with the original text and to do manuscript studies.

Catalogue of Digitized Medieval Manuscripts

Homepage

http://manuscripts.cmrs.ucla.edu/Manuscripts_list.php

Description

The Catalogue offers records for over 3000 medieval manuscripts that have been digitized in their entirety. The CDMMSS aims to gather in a single convenient location the digitization work undertaken over the last decades by numerous national libraries and private archives, and focus on complete books rather than sample leaves or isolated images.

 

Team

The Catalogue of Digitized Medieval Manuscripts was designed and implemented by Professor Matthew Fisher (UCLA, English) and Professor Christopher Baswell (Barnard College and Columbia University, English), with the assistance of Roozbeh Kavian (UCLA, Center for Digital Humanities), Peter Broadwell (PhD, UCLA, Musicology), Emily Runde (UCLA, English) and Malcolm Harris (UCLA, English) from 2007-2009.
