Manuscripts in the Classroom

Welcome to Digital Manuscripts in the Classroom! This educational resource is a collection of selected digitised manuscripts from Leiden University Libraries, organised in thematic routes. You are welcome to use (parts of) this collection in your classes. Please see the colophon for details on how to use and improve these materials. Digital Manuscripts in the Classroom is currently released in beta.

Each manuscript can be viewed in high resolution and read in the browser. Summaries with links to the included glossary and to Wikipedia, as well as links to specific parts of the manuscript, help students understand all aspects of the production and use of manuscripts. The study of these manuscripts is guided by a set of questions that can be answered by looking at the digitised objects.
