From Parchment to Cyberspace: Medieval Literature in the Digital Age - Medieval Interventions 2 (Hardback)Stephen G. Nichols (author)
- We can order this
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.
