‘TRAME’ Texts and manuscript transmission of the Middle Ages in Europe

TRAME is a research infrastructure project for the development and interoperability of web databases about medieval manuscript tradition.The focus of TRAME is to foster the interactivity of repositories concerning digitized images of medieval manuscripts, their codicological descriptions, their textual and philological interest, their cultural significance in the context of the european history.

TRAME has three major issues:

  • step 1: to build a metasearch engine capable to search across the databases of the italian partners that joined the starting phase of the project;
  • step 2: to evaluate the possibility of extension of the metasearch approach to other web resources (libraries, portals, individual research projects), using various tools and technologies;
  • step 3: extend the metasearch approach to virtually any relevant web resource devoted to medieval texts and manuscripts, through an extended partnership program

TRAME’s first step was funded by the italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (FIRB program). Its development is in line with the Memorandum of Understanding of the COST Action IS1005 “Medieval Europe – Medieval Cultures and Technological Resources‏”.
