transcribeestoria

Transcribeestoria is a pilot project which aims to engage a broad public in the study of the middle ages in Spain. You will help us to transcribe one of the earliest manuscripts of the Estoria de Espanna – known by the siglum C, from the Biblioteca Nacional de España, Madrid (MS 12837). It is a fourteenth-century manuscript of 148 folios. The Estoria de Espanna Digital project seeks to transcribe all of the manuscripts of Alfonso el Sabio’s history of Spain, and you can help us understand better the way in which manuscripts relate to each other – how texts were written and rewritten over the years.
