Editing Medieval Texts


The Collaborative Program in Editing Medieval Texts offers intensive training in the editing of medieval Latin and vernacular texts, including music. Training in all areas is based on a sound knowledge of Latin, a facility in examining manuscript documents, and an understanding of the principles of editorial method. Students can choose to focus on editing texts in Latin, texts in Old and Middle English, or texts in other vernacular languages. Students in the program complete a series of courses that deal with the techniques of reading, transcribing, and editing manuscripts, and then complete an editorial project.
