Existing Technology

At present there exists an ability to present scanned photographs of the manuscript evidence, a transcription of any original which was composed in a Latin alphabet and an English translation of each text.

One level of our Archive will present the user with this full range of material: a scanned original of the manuscript pages, transcription of the original text, and an English translation. In most cases the English translation would only be found for the "critical text," the understanding being that scholars working on the problem of textual versions would not need a translation. Obviously, though, given the wide range of language groups represented, no one scholar could work in the original for every text represented.
