The online catalogue for Beyond Words: Illuminated Manuscripts in Boston Collections is now live:
Hover over “Catalog” and select “Online” to access the database.
The online catalogue allows for searching by keyword and catalogue number as well as upper and lower date limits, and provides browse lists for illuminator, scribe, and place of production. Each of the 249 object records includes at least one image and two-thirds of the records link to a full-facsimile Mirador manifest or an institutional record. The database will be updated as more images become available to us, and full-text descriptions will be uploaded for many of the manuscripts in the coming months.
To access the catalogue and learn more about Beyond Words, please visit our website: http://BeyondWords2016.org. There you will find information about each of the three exhibition venues, registration and a preliminary program for the Beyond Words symposium (Nov. 3-5), a calendar of public programming, and more.
