An entry point to the written heritage of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance in Western Europe, from the 8th to the 18th century.
The Biblissima Portal provides unified access to a set of digital data on medieval manuscripts, incunabula and early printed books produced by the partners of the Biblissima+ consortium.
It allows to visualise and search for digitized documents, catalogues and specialized databases on various aspects of the study of the written heritage: history of collections and provenance, transmission of texts, iconography, bindings, fragments etc.
A search engine of interoperable digitized manuscripts and rare books
The IIIF Collections of Manuscripts & Rare Books platform allows to search for digitized manuscripts and early printed materials across many digital libraries compatible with IIIF standards.
It offers a search interface that is easy to use and gives results as relevant and complete as possible thanks to reconciled metadata between the different datasets.
