For the last two decades medieval manuscripts have undergone a revolution. After half a millennium of existence as rare and precious artifacts conserved in the châteaux of aristocrats, or in libraries and museums, where only a select group of specialists could consult them, they have acquired digital identities allowing them to be viewed anytime, anywhere by anyone with a computer.

The Digital Library of Medieval Manuscripts (DLMM) celebrates this new era by bringing together important collections of digitized manuscripts under one umbrella site: the Roman de la Rose Digital Library and the Christine de Pizan Digital Scriptorium. From this site, the visitor can learn about the 130+ Rose manuscripts and the 56 Christine de Pizan manuscripts, and view those manuscripts via our IIIF image viewer.
