Mapping Manuscript Migrations

The Mapping Manuscript Migrations portal links disparate datasets from Europe and North America to provide an international view of the history and provenance of medieval and Renaissance manuscripts. Researchers are able to analyse and visualize the aggregated data at scales ranging from individual manuscripts to thousands of manuscripts.

Our research addresses the origins and movements of these manuscripts, and the collectors and owners involved in their history. We show how these manuscripts have traveled across time and space to their current locations, where they continue to find new audiences.

The portal is publicly available at:
