On the e-codices site, complete digital reproductions of the manuscripts are linked with corresponding scholarly descriptions. Our aim is to serve not only manuscript researchers, but also interested members of the general public. At the moment, the virtual library contains 744 manuscripts from 33 different libraries. The virtual library will be continuously updated and extended. linea_sopra Most Recent Update update The oldest surviving Mass Antiphonary, held by the Abbey Library of Einsiedeln, the Reichenau Brothers' Book, containing the names of 38,000 monks, and a manuscript on Horse Medicine from the 16th century are just three of the codices newly available on e-codices. A total of 22 manuscripts were added to the website as of the end of March 2011: http://www.e-codices.unifr.ch/en/list/all/LastUpdate/ linea_sopra New Participating Libraries ms Three new libraries have just begun to provide access to their collections on e-codices. Our offerings are now enriched by cimelia from the Cantonal and University Library of Fribourg, including one of the most often re-copied texts of the Middle Ages: the Legenda aurea. Another new addition is the Provincial Archive of the Swiss Capuchins in Lucerne, which holds the Legenda maior s. Francisci by St. Bonaventure, in a copy written by two Claretian nuns. In addition, the Schaffhausen City Archives presents items including the Richtebrief, written in about 1300, the oldest Schaffhausen codex produced outside of the cloister. linea_sopra Unusual Items from the Manuscript Library: the Dracula Manuscript csg-0806_163 This manuscript owes its name to six pages of its content (pp. 283-288), an untitled section containing 30 brief tales written in about 1500 about the deeds of the Walachian Lord Vlad III. Tepes ("the Impaler"; 1431-1476). The other content of this composite manuscript consists mainly of historic and hagiographic thematic material. http://www.e-codices.unifr.ch/en/description/csg/0806 linea_divisoria Home | Information | Contact linea_divisoria e-codices Virtual Manuscript Library of Switzerland Rue de l'Hôpital 4, CH - 1700 Fribourg T + 41 (0) 26 300 71 57 F + 41 (0) 26 300 96 27 www.e-codices.ch Feedback: info_(at)_e-codices.ch ATT00001 _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(at)_mailman.let.uu.nl http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
