  • Koninklijke Bibliotheek (National Library of the Netherlands)


The website provides a portal to a database with short, uniform descriptions and photographs of all medieval manuscripts in the Netherlands, about 6000 items in all. MMDC has been set up by the Koninklijke Bibliotheek, the university libraries of Leiden, Amsterdam, Utrecht and Groningen, and the Atheneumbibliotheek Deventer and it is partly financed by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The website also contains information on medieval books in the Netherlands, digital versions of several key out-of-print books about medieval manuscripts and an illustrated overview of medieval script.
