Digitised Manuscripts hyperlinks July 2018
Hot on the heels of our recent announcement that the British Library's Anglo-Saxon charters are now online, we are pleased to provide you with another phenomenally fantastic list of digitised manuscripts hyperlinks. As usual, we are making this list available to download in two formats: as a PDF and as an Excel spreadsheet.
A quick glance reveals that no fewer than 2,336 of the Library's ancient, medieval and early modern manuscripts are now on Digitised Manuscripts, from Add Ch 19788 (a grant of King Wulfhere of the Mercians) to Yates Thomson MS 51 (Skazanie o Mamaevom Poboishche, 'The Tale of the Rout of Mamai', in Russian Church Slavonic). More are being added weekly to that number. It's always worth checking our Twitter feed, @BLMedieval, for the latest updates.
Here are just a few of the items on Digitised Manuscripts. We hope you enjoy trawling through the list to find your own highlights.
Miniature of St Dunstan as a bishop (Canterbury, 12th century): Royal MS 10 A XIII/1
Memorandum for a trip to Constantinople (Egypt, 5th–6th century): Papyrus 2237
William Bruggys' Garter Book (England, 15th century): Stowe MS 594, f. 5v
An Anglo-Norman verse miscellany (England or France, 13th century): Harley MS 4388, f. 2v
The Caligula Troper (England, 11th century): Cotton MS Caligula A XIV, f. 3v. You will be able to see more of our early medieval manuscripts in person in the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms exhibition, opening at the Library on 19 October.
