Boccaccio's Decameron


The Decameron Web project was started in the academic year 1994–95, and is a collaboration between the Italian Studies Department and the Scholarly Technology Group. The STG developed a DTD based on the TEI-Lite, and digitization was carried out by staff at the STG and graduate students of the Italian Studies Department.

The Decameron is now available online, and includes the full text of the original text in Italian and English, and secondary sources. Searches can be applied to the whole text or specific sections. Additional encoding has been added to support searches for gender, occupation and social role of named characters.
