Opening the Geese Book: A Medieval Manuscript Disseminated through Electronic Media

To support the digitization and scholarly apparatus for a facsimile of "The Geese Book," a two-volume gradual used in Nuremburg in the late medieval period, owned by the Pierpont Morgan Library. (12 months)

A multimedia work from the late Middle Ages will be explored through the multimedia technologies of our day. This pilot project focuses on the large two-volume, lavishly and whimsically illuminated manuscript known as the Geese Book, today housed in the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York (M. 905). Fashioned between 1504 and 1510, this gradual contains the complete liturgy sung by the choir in the parish of St. Lorenz in Nuremberg before the Reformation. The threefold goal is to provide a full facsimile on the Internet, to produce an audio CD with recordings of selected chants, and to present explanatory, comparative, and interpretive material on a multimedia interactive CD ROM. The scholarly community of manuscript specialists, art historians, musicologists, and historians together with interested and educated non-specialists form the intended audience.
