Post date: Nov 10, 2016 9:08:52 AM

My colleague Dora Panella has brought my attention to the Catalogue of Earlier Latin Manuscripts produced by Dr Mark Stansbury at the National University of Ireland, Galway, and hosted at

This is a database of Elias Avery Lowe's Codices Latini Antiquiores (CLA), supplemented with links to online digitisations and other databases. What's more, it's searchable and released under Creative Commons so can be linked and downloaded through an API.

As many biblical manuscripts are included in CLA, this is a welcome new resource which may be used alongside the catalogues in the Latin New Testament, particularly for those interested in palaeography and scripts.
