Trial access to Codices Vossiani Latini Online

By Anna Sansome, on 8 May 2024

UCL has trial access to Codices Vossiani Latini Online until 31st May 2024.

Codices Vossiani Latini Online contains all 363 codices which form the world-famous Latin part of Isaac Vossius’ manuscript collection held at Leiden University Library. Isaac Vossius (1618-1689) was a classical philologist and collector of manuscripts, maps, atlases and printed works. The Codices Vossiani Latini comprises a large number of early medieval manuscripts and major sources of many classic texts, including the oldest sources of Lucretius’ De natura rerum and of Cicero’s philosophical works. The manuscript collection is enriched by detailed information drawn from by K. A. de Meyier’s catalogues of the codices, providing essential information on the content, context, and physical appearance of each codex.
