transtextual networks in the european middle ages: a digital corpus of the trojan narrative in latin manuscripts
Engaging with one of the most important elements of Europe’s cultural heritage, “Transtextual Networks” employs material evidence and technological tools to analyse relationships among texts in the Middle Ages. The project is housed at the Arnamagnæan Institute at the University of Copenhagen and is generously funded by the European Union as part of Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
