Bill Endres is a digital humanists whose scholarship intersects the digital humanities, manuscript studies, and rhetoric. Using advanced imaging techniques, he has digitized the 8th-century St Chad Gospels, doing groundbreaking work to present the results on the Web through interactive 3D renderings, an altered viewer for spectral enhanced RTI viewing of dry-point writing, and a viewer for stacked and comparable multi-spectral and digitized historical photographs. His extensive work on historical photographs to assess aging and trends in the St Chad Gospels guides the manuscript’s care and handling.
