Virtual Library Of Medieval Manuscripts From The Irht

The Institut de Recherche et d'Histoire des Textes (IRHT) recently produced over 1,000 color and 600 black and white digital images of its vast medieval manuscript collection. On April 2, 2013, they launched a virtual library to house these digital documents, ‘Bibliothèque virtuelle des manuscrits médiévaux’ (BVMM). Accessible to the public free of charge, this online database allows visitors to research manuscripts by city or cote, zoom or rotate images for detailed study, or compare several documents in a single screen view.

These manuscripts are not only beautiful works of art and design but also examples of the most advanced information technology of their day. A remarkable resource worth exploring. Visit the ‘Bibliothèque virtuelle des manuscrits médiévaux’ (BVMM) : http://bvmm.irht.cnrs.fr/accueil/accueil.php
