New Rose manuscripts and other improvements

We have just updated the Roman de la Rose Digital Library with some exciting new developments. We are proud to announce the addition of three new manuscripts from various German libraries. The new manuscripts include:

  • Ms. lat. qu. 65 from the Universit├Ątsbibliothek Johann Christian Senckenberg in Frankfurt. This 14th century manuscript includes 14 miniatures.
  • Cod. gall. 17 from the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich. This mid-14th century Parisian manuscript is beautifully illustrated with 82 miniatures.
  • Cod. poet et Phil. 6 from the W├╝rttembergische Landesbibliothek in Stuttgart. This is a 15th century manuscript with 37 miniatures.

In addition to the three new manuscripts, we are making the following additions and changes to the site:

  • Updated manuscript description for Bodmer 79
  • Corrected the image tagging on the following: Walters 143 (105v), Arsenal 5209 (107r), and Chicago 1380 (102v). Each of these descriptions were changed from “Husband Foolishly Confides in Wife” to “Procreating Couple”.
  • Image tagging on Morgan 148, 162r moved to 162v.
  • Corrected numbering of flyleaves on Fr. 25526.
  • Missing links added to French-language home page.
As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions about the library. We hope that these additions and changes will enhance your research.
