The workshop covers the fundamentals of digital editing while tackling the codicological challenges posed by manuscript rolls. Practical sessions inform collective editorial decision-making: participants will undertake the work of transcription and commentary, and encode (according to TEI P5 protocols) the text and images of a medieval manuscript roll. The workshop will result in a collaborative digital edition. The manuscript selected for this workshop is Takamiya 56, a late medieval devotional roll written in Latin and Middle English. No language proficiencies are required for participation in this course.

The workshop will run April 3rd and 4th, 2020 (Friday-Saturday) 9.30am-4.30pm. This graduate-run workshop is free of charge, and lunches will be provided for participants. The workshop will be limited to twelve places – preference will be given to graduate students with a demonstrated need for training in manuscript study and text encoding.

More information about the upcoming workshop and previous workshops can be found on the website – please read this information before applying, and apply online by February 14th. Applicants will be notified whether they can be offered a place by February 21th. For more information, see the project website (, or email organizers at
