Class Notes (10): Editing editions with XML

with No Comments

These are the class notes for the “Introduction to XML and editing ancient documents” seminar I am doing this summer semester at LMU, Munich.

In todays class we talked about how we can combine different online data sources to create our own material for research. In order to combine data sets it is useful (but not nessecary) that the datasets are encoded in a similar way, for example by using EpiDoc TEI.

We therefore look at how to encode an ancient document’s diplomatic edition/transcription with EpiDoc TEI and how this can be transformed into multiple representations of the same edition.

Have a look at the Guide to working with ancient documents in XML for ideas about this.

Next week we will be looking at topics from the DIY projects.
