Digital Scriptorium
A Prototype Image Database & Visual Union Catalog of Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts
"...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."

The Gutenberg Bible at the Ransom Center
"The Gutenberg Bible, the first book printed with movable type, is one of the greatest treasures in the Ransom Center's collections. It was printed at Johann Gutenberg's shop in Mainz, Germany and completed in 1454 or 1455. The Center's Bible was acquired in 1978 and is one of only five complete examples in the United States...For the first time, it is possible for the general public to view all of the pages from the University of Texas copy, including all of the large illuminated letters in volume I and the copious handwritten annotations, as well as other indications of the book's use in religious services."
Sections include: The Book before Gutenberg ; Johann Gutenberg ; The Printing of the Bible ; The Spread of Printing ; The Appearance of the Bible ; Anatomy of a Page ; The Ransom Center Copy ; Selected Pages ; Digital Gutenberg Project ; Additional Resources.

Internet Medieval Sourcebook
"The Sourcebook is in two parts. The first is made up of fairly short classroom sized extracts, derived from public domain sources or copy-permitted translations, the second is composed of the full documents, or WWW links to the full documents...At the moment, the texts available still address elite governmental, legal, religious and economic concerns."

[Michelangelo] The Digital Michelangelo Project
"Our goal is to produce a set of 3D computer models - one for each statue, architectural setting, and map fragment we scanned - and to make these models available to scholars worldwide."

Project Wittenberg
"Home to works by and about Martin Luther and other Lutherans. Here you will find all manner of texts from short quotations to commentaries, hymns to statements of faith, theological treatises to biographies, and links to other places where words and images from the history of Lutheranism live. Project Wittenberg is the first step towards an international electronic library of Lutheranism. As such, we are always adding and changing our sites. This site contains Project Wittenberg texts in final form."
