Codices Vossiani Latini Online [Trial]

Description

"The Codices Vossiani Latini Online publishes all 363 codices which form the world-famous Latin part of Isaac Vossius’ manuscript collection held at Leiden University Library. The Codices Vossiani Latini count a large number of early medieval manuscripts (a whopping 76 Carolingian manuscripts dating from before 900), including major sources of many classic texts. Famous are the oldest sources of Lucretius’ De natura rerum, of Cicero’s philosophical works, and the earliest manuscript of Plinius’ Historia naturalis known to be produced north of the Alps (Northumbria, eighth century). Other highlights include an illustrated herbal from around 600 and the Aratea, an astronomical treatise from around 840, manufactured at the court of Louis the Pious with 39 beautiful miniatures of the constellations....

The 363 codices in all comprise 40,278 openings, resulting in 84,266 images, including covers and flyleaves.

The manuscript collection is enriched by detailed information drawn from by K. A. de Meyier's catalogues of the codices, providing users, both students and researchers, with essential information on the content, context, and physical appearance of each codex."

This collection demonstrates the impact of the holy book of Islam in Europe and is of interest to book historians, theologians, philologists, and scholars of Islamic Studies alike. Long before printing with movable type became common practice in the Islamic world, Qur'ans had been printed in Arabic type in several European cities. Included here are 62 exemplars of Qur'ans and Qur'an Translations in Arabic, Latin, German, French, English, Dutch, and Hebrew printed between 1537 and 1857, including Arabic Qur'an editions printed in Europe before 1850 and all complete translations directly from the Arabic (until about 1860). Among the secondary translations, only those into German and Dutch are offered completely. Of the partial editions, only the typographically or academically most interesting ones are presented. 

Available as part of Brill's Qurʾānic Studies Online along with The Encyclopaedia of the Qur’an Online, The Qur’an Concordance, and The Dictionary of Qur’anic Usage Online.
