Introducing the Biblia Medieval Project - CSIC

On May 31, 2012 Andrés Enrique-Arias (Universitat de les Illes Balears) gave a talk on:

"Digital Humanities Applied to the Study of Medieval Language and Culture: the Biblia Medieval Corpus and Website."

Andrés Enrique-Arias presents the Biblia Medieval project, an organized collection of interactive electronic resources to assist in the study of the medieval Castilian translations of the Bible. It includes, among other things, an index of all Castilian biblical manuscripts, a comprehensive and searchable bibliographic database, a page with frequently asked questions, images of all manuscripts, paleographic transcriptions, an also texts and concordances to be downloaded. The most innovative and far-reaching resource developed by the Biblia Medieval research group is a corpus by the same name, which contains about five million words and 17,000 digital images. This freely available tool allows online users to view and compare in parallel all the biblical romanceamientos preserved, along with the Latin text of the Vulgate and their Hebrew sources.
