Final Conference of the Europeana Regia Project
Europeana Regia: A Digital Library of Royal Manuscripts
Review and Future Prospects of a European Collaborative Project
Thursday, 31st May 2012 from 2pm to 6pm
Colbert Auditorium – 2, rue Vivienne 75002 Paris
Since 2010, the Europeana Regia project has drawn together three royal collections of European manuscripts, which have been digitised, described and made accessible both to researchers and the general public.
Produced during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, the manuscripts of the Bibliotheca Carolina (8th and 9th centuries), the Library of Charles V and Family (14th century) and the Library of the Aragonese Kings of Naples (15th and 16th centuries) are representative of Europe’s political, cultural and artistic history, and have been dispersed throughout the continent over the centuries.
For the first time, and with the support of the European Commission, more than 900 manuscripts have been virtually assembled to reconstruct a page of European heritage.
As we reach the end of this initiative, the general results and future applications will be presented during the Final Conference, to be held on 31st May 2012, hosted by the project leader, the Bibliothèque nationale de France.
