eCodicology - Algorithms for the Automatic Tagging of Medieval Manuscripts

eCodicology is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). It is the follow up project of the DFG funded project Virtual Scriptorium St. Matthias (2010-2014). In the Virtual Scriptorium project, the medieval manuscript collection of the Benedictine Abbey of St. Matthias in Trier has been digitised and merged. These digital copies are re-used in eCodicology with the aim to attract new codicological data from the existing digital images of medieval manuscripts.


Conference: "Machines und Manuscripts III – Research of Written Documents in the Digital Age"

On 22 and 23 February 2016 the Technische Universität Darmstadt will host an international conference "Research of Written Documents in the Digital Age" in the Georg Christoph Lichtenberg-Haus. The third conference will complete the series "Machines and Manuscripts" organized by the BMBF-funded project eCodicology. The event will focus on reuse of electronic catalogues and digital images, the quantitative and comparative codicology, layout studies and bibliometric methods as well as data processing and visualization. Our aim is to facilitate an open dialogue between traditional and digital researchers and to discuss prospects and constraints of digital research on manuscripts together.
