 Abstract : Editorial work normally assumes that editors can extract the text out of its original carrier while preserving its integrity and semantic value; this is because text is usually considered as a linguistic object rather than a physical one. Indeed, this principle is explicitly stated as the theoretical basis for the de facto standard of markup for digital texts, the Guidelines of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI). Elena Pierazzo will discuss the very fundamentals of this assumption, presenting medieval and modern examples, and will introduce a new way of encoding documents using the model proposed by the Genetic Edition Working Group, a task force of the Manuscript Special Interest Group of the TEI.
The paper will be followed by a demonstration of a prototype developed for the ‘Digital Resource and Database for Palaeography, Manuscript Studies and Diplomatic’ project developed by Peter Stokes. Funded by the European Research Council, it aims to provide new ways of exploring visual and verbal information about handwriting and its manuscript context.
