While the University of California at Los Angeles’ Catalogue of Digitized Medieval Manuscripts will be of greatest interest to specialists, many others may be interested in this already vast and growing repository (more than 1000 manuscripts in 20 languages by nearly 200 authors, and representing 59 libraries from around the world) of treasures from the medieval world. Many of these books are astonishing works of art even aside from their important historical contents.

For more information on the project that led to the creation of this exquisite online collection, see Science Daily’s Virtual Library of Medieval Manuscripts Created.
