Website of the Week (WoW) #218: Europeana Regia

This virtual exhibit recreates large portions of three royal manuscript collections of the Medieval and Renaissance periods that were subsequently dispersed: Bibliotheca Carolina (8th and 9th centuries), the Library of Charles V and Family (14th century) and the Library of the Aragonese Kings of Naples (15th and 16th centuries).

Digitized through the Europeana Regia project (2010-2012), the manuscripts are now also accessible via the larger Europeana collection. The virtual exhibit makes it possible to explore the manuscripts in the context of the reconstructed collections, each of which provides a view into European cultural activity during a distinct historical period.
