Links and Bibliography
We have regularly used the following three WEB RESOURCES in our work on Ege, and recommend them to you. In our opinion they are among the best electronic resources a weary world has to offer.
- A downloadable version of the Latin Vulgate. Vulsearch is a free download and will setup on your desktop a searchable and user-friendly copy of the Clementine Vulgate Bible with the early 17th-century Douay–Rheims
English translation accompanying it. A special plug-in also allows you to search the Glossa Ordinaria, of particular help for work with Leaf 01.
- A Hypertext Book of Hours. One of the unusual problems we face in dealing with detached leaves is the specific identification of liturgical text, sometimes with very little context to assist us. This site, prepared by Glenn Gunhouse, provides a searchable Book of Hours which greatly facilitates the localization of text on leaves from that very popular kind of manuscript.
- A comprehensive database of the contents of various Books of Hours across space and time. The Center for Håndskriftstudier i Danmark (CHD) is a capacious and ever-growing site maintained by the perspicacious Erik Drigsdahl.
In addition to those mentioned in the "Locations" tab to the left, websites containing EGE MATERIAL include the following:
- Colorado College, The Donald Jackson Collection of Original Leaves
