Description:

The aim of the Medieval Nordic Text Archive (Menota) is to collect and make available in an electronic format (TEI/XML) texts written in the Nordic countries in the Medieval period, i.e. up to ca. 1550. The archive will include texts in Latin as well as Old Icelandic, Old Norwegian, Old Danish and Old Swedish.

Related resources:

A handbook for the encoding of Medieval Nordic texts was developed as part of the project 'Editing medieval manuscripts' (Oslo 2000-2001). Work on the handbook is being continued and the current version is 2.0 beta (March 2008). This version is in English.
