An edition and an analysis of Codex Runicus, AM 28 8vo (Den Arnamagnæanske Samling, Copenhagen)

Paola Peratello, Università di Verona

Codex Runicus (Copenhagen, The Arnamagnæan Collection, AM 28 8vo) from ca. 1300 is one of the most famous medieval Danish manuscripts and, at the same time, also one of the most unusual: it is entirely written in medieval runes. It has interested scholars and librarians over the centuries, right up to the digital turn. Paola Paratello’s Ph.D. research presents AM 28 8vo as it has never been seen before: the interoperable digital edition of the entire AM 28 8vo includes information missing in previous editions, such as a full lemmatisation of its texts with a linking to the online dictionary Gammeldansk Ordbog, the presentation of the runic characters using a tailored runic font (UNI Runes font), along with codicological studies of AM 28 8vo. In her Ph.D. research, Paola addresses also the challenges of producing a digital edition of a text entirely written in runes.
