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.

The Enigma of the Sinaitic Glagolitic Tradition

Homepage

http://www.caa.tuwien.ac.at/cvl/research/sinai/

Description

Continuing the ASF-project The Sinaitic Glagolitic Sacramentary (Euchologium) Fragments (P19608), this project continues the interdisciplinary collaboration of the Institute of Slavic Studies (ISS), University of Vienna (humanities), the Computer Vision Lab, Vienna University of Technology (computer scientists) and the Institute of Science and Technology in Art (ISTA), Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (chemists).

It is devoted to the recording, investigation and critical and facsimile edition of several newly detected Glagolitic manuscripts from St. Catherine’s monastery on Mt. Sinai (Sin. slav. 1/N, 3/N-5/N) and the comparative analysis of the whole Sinaitic Old Church Slavonic collection (10th-11th/12th c.), on the one hand, and the further development and application of new technical means for the preservation, investigation and virtual restoration of (damaged) written cultural heritage and its access for the research community, on the other.

In this joint venture three complex results are to be expected:

1. editions and comparative data of the relevant documents (codicology, palaeography, graphemics, and material);

2. improved imaging devices and new computer-programmes for the preservation, analysis and restoration of (damaged) written sources; and

3. the solution of the “Sinaitic Glagolitic Enigma”, i.e. new insights in the literary, ecclesiastic and overall cultural history of the Slavs and their connections with the Christian Orient.
