About manuscripts

What does one mean by the word 'manuscript'? On this page you will be able to get a sense of what a manuscript looks like by looking at our digitised manuscripts, which attempt to recreate the impression of turning the pages in a manuscript. You can also get an introduction to the chronological development of written culture by looking at the timeline. In the glossary, you will find the basic words used in the study of manuscripts.
