Glosses and Commentaries to the Bible in the Middle Ages

Portal to Digital Resources

The project was initiated by a group of scholars who, in 2006,  wrote a call for collaboration to realise a full-text digital edition of the Glosa ordinaria to the Bible. This digital edition, now in progress, will be freely available to the scientific community.

The aim of this website is to be a portal to scholarly information about the medieval glosses and commentaries to the Bible, giving access to digital resources (either produced by our team, or available elsewhere on the Internet).

Beyong the short introduction of the team, you will find here some didactical notes, online documents, and reviews of scholarly works, and information about upcoming events (seminars, symposia, etc.). In the end, we aim at publishing here the freely accessible, searchable digital edition of the Glosa ordinaria.
