The Digital Temple: A Documentary Edition

Preparation of a digital documentary edition of 17th-century poet George Herbert's English poems. (24 months)

The Digital Temple is a documentary edition of seventeenth-century poet George Herbert's English poems. The project's objectives are to bring together the primary materials essential to the study of Herbert's verse; to preserve the resulting database in a way that will ensure maximum flexibility, portability, and longevity; and to enhance access through a robust user interface. The final product will include complete diplomatic and modern-spelling transcriptions of three artifacts linked to high-resolution direct-to-digital scans; critical apparatus including notes and glosses, critical, textual, and technical introductions; and a user interface facilitating efficient navigation and querying of these materials. The fine granularity of the encoding -- enabling users to perform sophisticated search queries using either the software of their choice or that built directly into the interface -- will make The Digital Temple a powerful research tool.
