Histoire ancienne

Here you will find the principal outputs of The Values of French:

  1. Digital Edition: we are editing the two most important manuscript versions of the Histoire ancienne jusqu'à César, the earliest universal chronicle in French. The editions incorporate a semi-diplomatic transcription and interpretive edition of the text in each of our manuscripts.
  2. Search: the data from the lemmatisation of the interpretive text of the editions is incorporated into our faceted search page, allowing users to search by lemma or form, as well as sort and filter the results.
  3. Alignment: the complete contents of a select group of manuscripts of the Histoire ancienne jusqu'à César are available for the first time using our custom-designed tool, which offers users three different visualisations of the data.
