Royal Manuscript Project

We are pleased to announce that the British Library has recently been awarded a research grant by the Arts and Humanities Research Council to facilitate on-going research for the Royal manuscript project.  An important part of this new research grant will enable us to digitize fully a number of the manuscripts that are currently featured in the exhibition Royal Manuscripts: The Genius of Illumination (; these manuscripts will soon be freely available to all on our Digitised Manuscripts site (

So far we have selected 41 manuscripts from the current Royal exhibition, but we would like to invite your thoughts and ideas about what manuscripts might be included in our final list; it will be possible to select another 6 – 10 manuscripts (depending, of course, on their length).

For more details, please see:
