The Petrarchive Project: An Online Edition of 366 Poems by Petrarch

Preparation for publication of a digital edition of Francesco Petrarca's Rerum vulgarium fragmenta, a collection of 366 poems in Italian dating from the medieval era; the edition would include manuscript facsimiles, commentary, and full apparatus in English and Italian. (36 months)

The Storey-Walsh Petrarchive Project is an open source initiative designed for students, scholars, teachers, and translators to utilize the enhanced multi-layer texts, multiple commentaries, and search resources of what we call a "rich-text" edition of Petrarch’s influential magnum opus that will be a fundamental tool for the work’s interpretation and translation. The edition documents and represents the visual characteristics of the source documents in encoded documents and offers the multiple strata of the textual genesis of Petrarch’s complex vernacular poetic icon, the Rerum vulgarium fragmenta, in a single interface. The team will develop a TEI-based digital edition with facsimile page images augmented by visualizations and tools to provide users new and more authentic ways to read and examine Petrarch’s work in its unique medieval form and to utilize multiple configurations of his reordering of the collection over time.
