        Subject: Dante Commedia, 2nd edition open to all

We are pleased to announce that the second edition of Prue Shaw’s
Digital Edition of Dante’s Commedia is now available at Thanks to the cooperation of its 
publishers (Fondazione Ezio Franceschini, and Inkless Editions,, of the libraries holding the 
manuscripts, of the participating scholars, and of DARIAH-IT, 
we are able to make the whole edition available to all free on-line.

The edition contains full transcripts and images of seven key
manuscripts, together with the full text of the Petrocchi and Sanguineti
editions, a complete word-by-word collation of the texts of the
manuscripts and editions, some 500 pages of editorial materials, and
analysis and visualizations of the manuscript relations using
phylogenetic and other digital tools. A specialized variant database
(“VBase”) enables precise searches for variant readings according to
their distribution across the tradition.

This second edition offers all the data of the first edition, with
updated editorial material, in a completely new interface. Its
development was overseen by myself (University of Saskatchewan and
Inkless Editions), Lino Leonardi (Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa and
Fondazione Ezio Franceschini), Prue Shaw (University College London),
David Robey (Universities of Oxford and Reading) and Emiliano
Degl’Innocenti (DARIAH-IT).
