The electronic Campsey project

Electronic Campsey corpus

This site offers electronic editions of French verse saints’ lives written in medieval England. The primary focus is on the thirteen works in the unique Campsey manuscript, the only known medieval collection composed solely of French verse saints’ lives. Six of these thirteen lives are also extant in other manuscripts, and these copies are also included in the corpus (with the exception of the multiple copies of Becket, in progress).

For more details on the project objectives, methods and search tools visit the Campsey project Overview.
