Digital Scriptorium

The Digital Scriptorium was conceived as an image database of dated and datable medieval and renaissance manuscripts, intended to unite scattered resources into an international tool for teaching and scholarly research. It has evolved into a general union catalog designed for the use of paleographers, codicologists, art historians, textual scholars and other researchers. As a visual catalog, it allows scholars to verify with their own eyes cataloguing information about places and dates of origin, scripts, artistic styles, and quality. It documents visually even those manuscripts that traditionally would have been unlikely candidates for reproduction. It provides public access to fragile materials otherwise available only within libraries. Because it is web-based, it encourages interaction between the knowledge of scholars and the holdings of libraries to build an ever-enriched and corrected flow of information.
