The course Digital Humanities for medieval philosophical sources is addressed to masteral students in ancient and medieval philosophy and also to the students in related fields (medieval history, classical languages, pre-modern literature, library science, palaeography, codicology etc.) Following the graduation of this course, the students will be able to prepare digital editions of the texts conserved in medieval manuscripts. The main course on Digital Humanities will be complemented by a Medieval Latin Palaeography module, so that the students will be able to decipher, describe, transcribe and edit critically the medieval manuscripts following the current TEI-P5 standards. Following this course, the students will be capable to use digital tools for production, analysis, representation, formatting and querying the digital editions in their future research.
