From Parchment to Cyberspace argues the case for studying high-resolution digital images of original manuscripts to analyze medieval literature. By presenting a rigorous philosophical argument for the authenticity of such images (a point disputed by digital skeptics) the book illustrates how digitization offers scholars innovative methods for comparing manuscripts of vernacular literature - such as The Romance of the Rose or texts by Christine de Pizan - that reveal aspects of medieval culture crucial to understanding the period.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book will be of great interest to the modern Medievalist and will likely spur on discussion between the different schools of Medieval thought, but it will also appeal to anyone interested in how digital can provide another model for textual transmission [...]."
(John Rodzvilla, Publishing Research Quarterly Volume 33, Issue 2/2017)
