Abstract

This session will focus on the history and transmission of medieval manuscripts. The papers will discuss new digital methodologies and approaches for combining, presenting and analysing evidence relating to manuscript provenance and ownership over the centuries since their production. This will include the first results from the international Mapping Manuscript Migrations project, funded by the Digging into Data Challenge with the aim of combining data from disparate sources to enable large-scale analysis and visualization of manuscript histories. The speakers will present work from three of the project partners: Oxford University, the University of Pennyslvania and the Institut de recherche et d’histoire des textes.
