Zotero bibliography

There is now a Zotero bibliography for medieval Latin palaeography here.

This is an open bibliography created by Anna Dorofeeva (University of Göttingen). Everyone is welcome to contribute! Before adding items, please note the following instructions for tagging:

1. The tagging language is English. Please only use tags in other languages if there exists no equivalent English term, or if the non-English term is more widely used.

2. Tags are added to items by users and are user-defined (they do not match any existing ontologies or terminologies). You may create new tags in Zotero, but please observe the rules described here. A file downloadable at the bottom of this page provides an overview of the current full list of tags, copy-pasted from Zotero. This file will be updated about once a year.

3. Tag all items with a date, e.g. “ninth century” (no hyphens; do not use precise years). For general / overview publications, use a broad description: “central medieval”, “early modern”, “medieval”, “Renaissance”.

4. If relevant, tag items with a place (city, country, monastery, etc.). Write out “St” as “Saint”. French placenames with “Saint” are hyphenated (e.g. “Saint-Germain-des-Prés”). Please try to use only modern names, but other kinds of names (e.g. “Francia”) are fine if they are commonly used today.

5. Tag all items by general topic or subject, e.g. “parchment”, “codicology”, “endbands”. Multiple tags can and should be used, e.g. “women” “scribes”.

6. Tag all possible script names, creating new tags if necessary. E.g. “pre-Gothic” items can also be tagged with “early Gothic” and “transitional script”. “Gothic” items can also be tagged with “cursive”, “bastarda”, “textualis”, “libraria” etc. “Half-uncial” can also be tagged with “semi-uncial”.

7. If you see an item with missing tags, or with wrong tags, please correct it!

  1. Thanks! I haven’t got to installing Zotero yet — is this more than a list of tags? That’s all I see.

    May I suggest Fleury, Auxerre, Heiric and Tironian-Notes?
    I realize that this is editable but I’m too ignorant of the process to feel comfortable with that.

    1. The main biblio is here. You need to create a Zotero account in order to add to it, but you don’t necessarily have to install the client, and you can view the bibliography without an account. The downloadable Excel list of tags is just copy-pasted from Zotero, but I think it’s useful to have as a standalone file since it’s hard to view all tags in Zotero at the same time. As people add references, the relevant tags – including those you suggest – should also get added (or at least that is the hope!), to make the bibliography easily searchable.
