Mapping Manuscripts

Our goal in the Mapping Manuscripts project is to map the production of medieval manuscripts through digital methods.

Traditional mapping techniques for manuscript production are problematic because scholars know little about specific dates and locations of production. While scholars can approximate the date and production location of a manuscript through close examination, their conclusions can be as broad as “Germany,” or “9th or 10th century.” While pinpoints on a map can’t accurately represent this kind of fuzzy metadata, it can be useful when applying digital mapping methods.

Mapping Manuscripts is a project of Text Technologies.
