THE ART OF READING IN THE MIDDLE AGES
Welcome to the ARMA PROJECT.
The project ‘The Art of Reading in the Middle Ages’ will show the importance of medieval reading culture as a European movement by bringing together (digitised) manuscripts produced between c. 500 and c. 1550 from across Europe, unlocking their educational potential by curational and editorial enrichment, using innovative ways for displaying and handling digital objects in an educational context.
Selection of Outstanding objects
This document is the result of Activity 3, Engagement. Activity 3 runs from March 31 2021 to February 28 2022. Every data providing partner has identified relevant objects from their own collections or already available in Europeana and indicated how they relate to the theme of the Art of Reading in the Middle Ages, using a standardized list of topics and keywords. These objects will form parts of editorial outputs aimed at delivering a strong user experience.

The coming year c. 20,000 medieval manuscripts, incunabula and related object from the collections will be brought together during the ARMA project. Last week we finished our first milestone.
