General description: Designed to be of interest to the general public as well as to academic researchers, the St Patrick’s Confessio Hypertext Stack includes such features as digital images of the medieval manuscripts involved, a specially commissioned historical reconstruction that evocatively describes life in pre-Viking Ireland, audio presentations, and some ten thousand internal and external digital links that make it truly a resource to be explored. The Stack, which has been funded for three years under the Irish government’s Programme for Research in Third-Level Institutions (Cycle Four), provides free access to a piece of heritage that can be claimed by the most diverse components of Irish society.

Implementation description: TEI encoded resources comprise: – a deeply encoded critical text with apparatus notes (encoded as notes, not using the apparatus criticus tagset!) and LinkGrp’s in order to align the original Latin with the facsimiles of all extant manuscripts copies and a variety of prints; – manuscript descriptions; – translations into English, Irish, Portuguese and German; – several essays and articles; – a novel
