Facsimiles of Medieval Manuscripts and Incunabula

Literature & Drama

While Latin, Greek, and Old Church Slavonic became the standard languages for Roman Catholic and Orthodox texts across medieval Europe, vernacular languages were often used for literary works. Epic works from this time, such as BeowulfThe Canterbury Tales, and The Divine Comedy, remain a part of the classical canon today. FSU Special Collections & Archives has facsimile editions of the early manuscripts of the following literary works.
