Digitisation of the manuscripts and documents at the Biblioteca Generale di Terra Santa: the second step (EAP1142)

Aims and objectives

The aim of the project is twofold. Firstly, we intend to finish digitisation of the manuscripts in the collection of the Biblioteca Generale (BG) at St Saviour Monastery in Old Jerusalem, i.e. the books which fell off the framework of the project EAP823. and these which very recently joined the collection of the library. Secondly, we propose to record a group of unique incunabula some of them with handwritten additions and illuminations. We plan to use the equipment purchased for EAP832 which significantly reduces the cost of the current project.
