About the Project

Manuscripts from German-Speaking Lands is a three-year collaboration between the Bodleian Libraries in Oxford and the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel. Funded by The Polonsky Foundation, the project seeks to open up the medieval German manuscript collections of two world-class libraries for research and reuse. The two libraries will digitize nearly 600 medieval manuscripts of Germanic origin between 2019 and 2021.
