Digitization of 2 Iliad manuscripts in the Escorial to begin next week
Next week Mary Ebbott, Christopher Blackwell, Neel Smith, and I will travel to Madrid, where we will meet up with David Jacobs and Juan Garcés of the British Library and Brent Seales and a team of researchers from the University of Kentucky's Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments. Our goal is to capture the best possible images of two important Iliad manuscripts in the collection of the Escorial monastery in San Lorenzo. Subsequent posts will give more information about the imaging process, and the significance of the text and scholia in these manuscripts.
