Today marks the launch of our successor to the Roman de la Rose and Christine de Pizan websites:  the Digital Library of Medieval Manuscripts.  For those of you who have been following us since the project’s inception in 1996, this is a banner day.  With the advent of a new viewer, and some freshening of the design, we’re proud to share this new site with you.


Original Roman de la Rose website

When the site first debuted in 2009, it had a decidedly different look, and was the work of village.

The 2018 version keeps the best parts of the old site, while enhancing the presentation of the images.  We’ve learned a lot about the presentation of digital material in the ensuing years, and we look forward to your feedback.
