Estoria de Espanna Digital exhibition launched

The Estoria de Espanna Digital is an AHRC-financed project to construct a digital edition of the most important medieval Iberian chronicle - the Estoria de Espanna, written by King Alfonso the Wise of Castile and Leon in 1272.

To mark the launch of the edition (now available at estoria.bham.ac.uk/edition) the Biblioteca Nacional de España, the Biblioteca General Histórica de la Universidad de Salamanca, the Biblioteca de Menéndez Pelayo (Santander) and the James Ford Bell Library at the University of Minnesota have simultaneously put on display their manuscripts of the Estoria in an exhibition entitled "El hallazgo del pasado".

The Estoria Digital project, in conjunction with the Humanities Research Institute of the University of Sheffield, has constructed a digital exhibition to complement these (https://www.hrionline.ac.uk/estoria/). The exhibitions take place until mid April 2017.
