aratea-digital

A collection of digital editions and manuscript descriptions of medieval transmissions of Aratus‘ (ca. 315/310-240 BC) didactic poem the Phaenomena

Aratea Digital is a database collecting information about astronomy in the Early Middle Ages. The main focus of the project is the Latin transmission of the so-called Aratea texts including the Latin translations and the derivative texts based on Aratus' didactic poem Phaenomena. The website presents descriptions of their (pre-13th-century) manuscripts, references to the latest editions and relevant literature.

This website is work-in-progress. We are constantly working on improving and enhancing the information provided.
