In Principio, the incipit index of Latin texts, is an invaluable research tool for the study of the writers, texts and manuscripts of Antiquity, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance.
The incipit serves as a link between the text and the manuscript. The search software of In Principio enables to answer two main questions about the incipit:
1. who is the author and what is the title of the text?
2. which manuscripts contain the text?
In Principio is realised in partnership with the Institut de Recherche et d’Histoire des Textes (Paris, France), the Hill Monastic Manuscript Library (Collegeville, MN, USA) and the Bibliothèque nationale de France (Paris, France).
