To support preparation of an electronic edition of Alfred the Great's Boethius' CONSOLATION OF PHILOSOPHY.

BL MS Cotton Otho A. vi preserves the only surviving copy of the Old English prosimetrical translation of Boethius's Consolation of Philosophy by King Alfred the Great. Because the manuscript, severely damaged by fire in 1731, is often illegible in normal light, there is still no modern edition of this text. This project addresses: digital restoration of the manuscript with special lighting techniques; creation of a searchable electronic edition and glossary with the restored manuscript images; and development of a modular software framework, customized to the needs of scholars in the humanities, to allow efficient assembly of complex electronic editions from high-resolution digital facsimiles and XML-encoded textual materials.
