The Runica Manuscripta

The research unit Göttingen focuses on the North Germanic Runica Manuscripta, contained in manuscripts in Scandinavia, on the continent and also in the British Isles.

Following the example of the seminal edition by René Derolez, the work in this research unit aims to collect systematically all the Nordic manuscript runes and present them according to uniform editing criteria. The edition will describe the characteristics of the individual entries (such as orthography, graphemics etc.) and also consider the general context of each manuscript as an indicator of the function of Runica Manuscripta.
