About the project

In the bigynnyng is the Manchester Middle English Digital library, a JISC funded digitisation project.  

The Rylands Middle English manuscripts are of paramount importance to key subject areas, including literature, history, theology, linguistics and art history. In response to demand for improved access, this project aims to digitise all 41 manuscripts, (approx 12,000 images) and make them publicly available via a dedicated project website.

This will be the cornerstone of a more ambitious project for a Manchester Medieval Digital Library which will contain manuscripts in other languages and incunabula.

I am a retired professor of English who is continuing with his research. I should be most grateful to be added to any newsletter mailings so that I can know about the outcome of this project.
