Medieval Manuscripts

Until I have time to properly update this page, you might want to look at my list of very briefly annotated URLs for digital manuscript editions. You can see the page here, or subscribe to an RSS feed. I’m only listing complete editions, and I’m emphasizing Celtic and English mss., and Books of Hours, since those are my primary interests. That said, I’m more than willing to add other manuscripts. I simply am not likely to know about those outside my field.
