A Diversity of Manuscripts in the Grip of Angled Brackets

By Hanne Grießmann

It is a challenge, but it is worth it: as part of the Text and Frame research project, psalm manu-scripts and prints from the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Era are being encoded in compliance with TEI standards to make them machine-readable. On this digital basis, the captured texts can be analysed with the aid of computers and can be used across disciplines. Hanne Grießmann reports on the progress.

The psalter Herzog August Bibliothek, Cod. Guelf. 81.10 Aug. 2° is one of the manuscripts which are being encoded in compliance with TEI standards.
