Skaldic Database

Database editor: Tarrin Wills

This is an interface to the skaldic database. Published volumes are available publicly after two years from the publication date. Subscribers to the printed volumes who are logged in will be able to access editions and additional material. Members of the project can access further materials which cannot be published for copyright reasons.

Institutional subscribers have access through this interface to the content of the volume(s) purchased by the institution, including biographies, introductions, editions, translations, notes and variant apparatus; in addition, access is available to high-resolution images of certain manuscripts, searchable edition and transcriptions and other data. This additional material will appear automatically as you browse the skalds, poems, manuscripts and prose works here when logged in.

Transcriptions require a Unicode/MUFI-compatible font such as Junicode or Palemonas MUFI to be installed. See the MUFI font page.

Material here that is not in the printed edition is provided at no additional cost. However, such material may not be quality-controlled to the same level as the content of the printed volumes.
