800 Illuminated Medieval Manuscripts Digitized, To Go Online in November

Posted by Jean-Yves on Oct 9, 2018

The British Library, the Bibliothèque nationale de France and The Polonsky Foundation have teamed up to create two websites that will provide digital access to 800 medieval manuscripts. The websites will be launched next month.

It is part of ‘The Polonsky Foundation England and France Project,’ which began in 2016. The British Library and the Bibliothèque nationale de France are providing 400 manuscripts each from their collections, which were selected for their importance in relation to the history of French-English relationships in the Middle Ages. Produced between the 8th and the late 12th centuries, they cover a broad spectrum representing intellectual output during the early Middle Ages and the Romanesque era.
