*Helping Users to Explore Collated Manuscripts*
Elisa Nury (King’s College London)
The comparison of manuscripts and recording of variant readings is an essential, but challenging task towards the preparation of a scholarly edition. A large amount of detailed data is collected during collation, and needs to be analysed and visualized. In the recent years, the use of digital format has been increasingly incorporated within the collation workflow: from writing down variants in Word or Excel documents to adopting complex automated collation tools such as CollateX. This presentation will focus on a method to help scholars and readers visualize collation results of a Latin text in a digital format.
