"The Siege of Jerusalem," 14th-Century English Poem: A Critical Edition and Electronic Archive of Textual Transcriptions

The Siege of Jerusalem Electronic Archive consists of three parts: 1) an archive of xml-encoded transcriptions of the nine surviving manuscripts of the anonymous fourteenth-century poem The Siege of Jerusalem linked to digital images of all 231 extant manuscript leaves; 2) a critical edition of the poem; 3) an introduction that establishes the poem's enormous socio-cultural importance and articulates how the archive serves as a model of the opportunities that digital technologies offer for the representation of medieval texts and textuality. The goal of this project, in short, is to provide a publication-ready set of texts and tools for teaching and studying this poem while simultaneously showing through both example and analysis the ways in which digital media have augmented and fundamentally altered our ability to think about, publish, and use medieval manuscripts and their texts.
