New Testament Transcriptions · Matthew

We are excited to announce the publication of transcriptions of the Gospel of Matthew from two medieval manuscripts. Leah Elder has finished transcribing and editing Matthew from the 1410 Wycliffe translation of the New Testament (see this earlier post). Tucker Hannah has completed an edition of Matthew from the St. Chad Gospel.

Both texts were encoded in TEI-conformant XML and are available through the Furman Classics Canonical Text Service.

Work progresses on indices associating chapter and verse from the transcriptions to regions-of-interest on images of the manuscripts. Our goal is to publish complete digital editions of both manuscripts with closely interrelated images, texts, translations, and other data.
