    Abstract:
    The Carolingian Canon Law Project (CCL) gives access for the first time to a vast quantity of important medieval legal material, hitherto known only partially, and only by scholars who have been able to consult manuscripts in repositories scattered across Europe, or who have used texts published before the twentieth century. This project initiates digital presentation that matches the dynamic nature of the material, which varies in each manuscript. It will also establish basic "industry standards" for encoding transcriptions of medieval legal manuscripts. This project thus will offer a model for any venture in the Humanities that involves study of multiple versions of a text. The CCL also supplies vital bibliography, annotations, and translations into English of these Latin texts. This project is intensively collaborative, and is designed to sustain collaboration among future as well as present scholars. Level II funding is requested from September 2008 through August 2009.
    Notes:
    The establishment of encoding standards and digital access for multiple versions of medieval Latin legal manuscripts, including bibliographic information, annotations, and English translations.
