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."

All manuscripts, on vellum and paper, and printed editions and translations of the Sagas as well as relevant critical studies published before 1900 will be included and available through the Internet."

  • and to encourage Chaucer studies, including those undertaken via "distance learning," at all levels of education."
