  14. 14. Digitally Enabled Scholarship with Medieval Manuscripts 1. An Edition of the First Recension of Gratian’s Decretum – Professor Anders Winroth, Professor of History – … and a team of graduate assistants 2. A Literary History of the English Book of Hours – Jessica Brantley, Professor of English 3. Creating English Literature, ca. 1385-ca. 1425 – Alastair Minnis, Professor of English – Holly Rushmeier, Professor of Computer Science 4. Manuscript Analysis of Books of Hours – Holly Rushmeier, Professor of Computer Science
  15. 15. Creating a Critical Edition • Scholars compare manuscripts in detail to establish the Latin text • Manuscripts are scattered throughout Europe (and beyond): Admont, Barcelona, Florence, Paris, St. Gall, etc. • Team’s previous working method was to use online viewers and/or local copies of images • Mirador is perfectly suited to this use case • Viewer instance configured for use by the project team
  16. 16. Viewing Books of Hours • Investigation of the culture of reading shaped by these books and vernacular literature in the later Middle Ages • About 800 manuscripts from late medieval England • Each contains a standard set of Latin prayers, but also other texts, illustrations, marginal notes • Mirador facilitates comparison of manuscripts
  17. 17. Creating English Literature, ca. 1385-ca. 1425 • Study of texts by leading authors of the day – namely, Chaucer, Gower, Langland and Hoccleve • How were they produced, who produced them, and where? • Non-invasive scientific analysis of the inks and pigments used by scribes and decorators in England (especially London)
  18. 18. Multispectral Images • Each band is processed into a black and white TIFF • Viewer presents the user with a choice of alternate images for the page
  19. 19. Multispectral Images in Mirador
  20. 20. Manuscript Analysis of Books of Hours • Holly Rushmeier, Professor of Computer Science • Develop custom algorithms to segment the manuscript images into areas of text and areas of individual illustration • Detect text layout • Analyze the image content Image from: ATHENA: Automatic Text Height ExtractioN for the Analysis of old handwritten manuscripts, R. Pintus, Y. Yang, and H. Rushmeier, Conference Paper: Digital Heritage 2013 (2013)
  21. 21. Detecting Significant Features of Manuscript Materials • Detect text orientation and de-skew images • Detect main text block of the page • Automatically determine the line height of the text • Detect non-text areas (image vs. text) • Features will be viewable as annotations in Mirador • Mirador will allow rapid feedback of results to humanities scholars
  22. 22. Image Annotations
  23. 23. Image Annotations
  24. 24. Implementing the IIIF Image API – Started project with no scalable image support – Deployed Djatoka image server – Developed IIIF protocol adapter – In production for about 6 months – Easy! – Friendly, helpful IIIF community
  25. 25. Looking Ahead
  26. 26. 8 manuscripts, 6 repositories

Mirador 1.0 • Image Viewing – – – – – Basic zoom and pan Thumbnail view Scroll view Metadata view Image choice • Comparison Features – Configurable window environment – Locked zoom – User-configurable size and scale • Annotations – Annotation viewing for externally created annotations • State – Saved state of workspace • Interoperability – Ability to display content from multiple hosting sources
