Medieval Illuminated Manuscripts

University of Leeds

To coincide with the 2015 International Medieval Congress at the University of Leeds, they have launched a new digital resource which showcases illumination found in twenty-seven medieval manuscripts held in the collections.


Digital Scriptorium

The Digital Scriptorium is a growing image database of medieval and renaissance manuscripts that unites scattered resources from many institutions into an international tool for teaching and scholarly research. It bridges the gap between a diverse user community and the limited resources of libraries by means of sample imaging and extensive rather than intensive cataloguing.
