Dante's Library: Rebuilding a Medieval Network of Knowledge

Ongoing

The aim of Dante's Library: Rebuilding a Medieval Network of Knowledge was to reconstruct in virtual form what would have been Dante's library in the broadest sense of the word—the literary, theological, philosophical, political, and scientific texts that he might have read and the artwork he might have encountered. The result was an online collection of the material that shaped Dante's vision. It draws on existing digitizations plus some of its own, and includes brief texts that introduce each work, manuscript, or image and give a sense of its context, its significance, and its connections to Dante.
