This third of three sessions takes the step from the Middle Ages to the present. The aim of this session is to discuss the possibilities and chances of digital methods in accessing and presenting the materiality of medieval source materials. The case studies discuss projects for digitalising medieval maps, multi-layered manuscripts, and medieval literature. The focus is not just on questions and problems of digitalising medieval sources, but also on the possible advantages or new research questions resulting from digital methods, including technical questions resulting from the different medieval source materials.
