Alongside the digitization of Lorsch manuscripts this database records detailed metadata based on research literature and existing manuscript descriptions of all codices.
The manuscript SEARCH option provides the possibility to search for contexts of the manuscripts’ origin as well as codicological and palaeographic data. It enables a selective search for previous owners, authors, titles, incipits, subjects or types of texts. The database has been implemented with the software Koha and is being hosted by the Southwestern German Library Network (SWB).
