The digitization of the complete collection of medieval manuscripts at the SuUB Bremen was funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) in cooperation with the Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel. As of now, these digitized manuscripts are also available online at https://brema.suub.uni-bremen.de/ms.
The collection of the SuUB Bremen contains 124 medieval manuscripts from the 9th to the 16th centuries. The manuscripts are diverse in terms of form, content, and language and represent the entire spectrum of medieval intellectual and knowledge culture.
Among them are liturgical manuscripts from the churches of Bremen. A chapter book from the collegiate monastery of St. Willehadi dating from 1324 can be found at https://nbn-resolving.de/urn:nbn:de:gbv:46:1-117073.
The manuscripts were completely digitized, structured, and stored in the Digital Collections of the SuUB Bremen and made publicly accessible. The manuscripts and their digital copies can also be found via E-LIB, the SuUB’s general catalog.
