Review(s)

Comments made by users :

In Principio is an electronic finding tool for the humanities. Publishing a corpus of incipits is a fresh retribution to the body of reference tools for scholarship.”

“The intellectual significance of the proposed project is undeniable with the context of humanities-based research focusing on medieval manuscripts. For textual editors, ready to access to, and identification of, manuscripts is essential, and having manuscript incipits available in electronic form will greatly improve research efforts.”

In Principio is valuable to all of the humanities in as much as it identifies the texts of music, agronomy, astrology and astronomy, naval warfare and weapons, falconry and herbs. It is a universal finding aid for all learning.”
