Sexy Codicology is an independent project focused on medieval illuminated manuscripts and social media. We plunge deep into digitized special collections searching for the most beautiful illuminated manuscripts and share them on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Tumblr and Pinterest. Next to the promotion of medieval manuscripts over the internet, we also maintain projects such as the Maps of Digitized Medieval Manuscripts Available Online and Codicology, where we explain the basics of the various types of manuscripts.
Sexy Codicology’s objectives:
- To discover interesting medieval illuminated manuscripts hidden in digitized special collections.
- Share them through social media to the widest audience possible.
- Rise the interest in these amazing books.
Digitized Medieval Manuscripts Maps (DMMmaps)
The Digitized Medieval Manuscripts Maps link to thousands of medieval manuscripts and hundred of libraries all over the World.
These maps were designed to help scholars and enthusiasts explore and discover digitized medieval manuscripts made available all over the world. There are hundreds of libraries that have digitized their manuscripts, but it is often difficult to find them. To circumnavigate this issue, we chose to use acrowdsourced approach:
Anyone who is aware of a digitized library that is not on the maps, can contribute by sending us an email with the library’s detail, and we will proceed to insert it in our publicly available spreadsheets.
