Database of Byzantine Book Epigrams

The Database of Byzantine Book Epigrams (DBBE) is freely accessible. Hosted by Ghent University, this database seeks to collect all book epigrams (or metrical paratexts) found in Greek manuscripts up to 1500.

The corpus can be searched for a specific epigram or browsed by a number of parameters such as date and type of manuscript. The information provided is based on catalogues, scholarly publications as well as consultation of manuscripts. The DBBE will be of use for classicists and Byzantinists, literary scholars, linguists, palaeographers, art historians and anyone generally interested in medieval manuscript culture.
