Catalogue of Digitized Medieval  Manuscripts


In December 2008,  the group launched the initial results. The UCLA-based 
Catalogue of Digitized  Medieval Manuscripts now links to nearly 1,000 
manuscripts by 193 authors in  20 languages from 59 libraries around the world, allowing 
users to flit from  England to France to Switzerland to the United States - 
to name the locations  of just a few of the featured repositories - with the 
click of a  mouse.

Highlights of the virtual holdings include: 

. The  largest surviving collection of the works of Christine de Pizan, one 
of the  first women in Europe to earn a living as a writer. The manuscript was  
commissioned by Queen Isabeau of France in 1414 and is now held by the 
British  Library. 
. An Irish copy of the Gospel of John, bound in ivory and  presented to 
Charlemagne sometime around 800, now in the library of the  monastery of St. Gall 
in Switzerland. 
. The Junius manuscript, one of only  four major manuscripts preserving 
poetry in Old English. Dated to around 1000,  the book is now among the holdings of 
Oxford's Bodleian Library.
