Project Description:

The Huon d’Auvergne Digital Edition is an international, inter-institutional, interdisciplinary project that presents the Franco-Italian Huon d’Auvergne romance-epic to a general audience for the first time. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the project aims to reach a diverse audience of both students and researchers. The modern English translation will make the text available widely, while the collaborative edition will allow epic scholars to read and research all four surviving textual witnesses of the Franco-Italian Huon d’Auvergne romance-epic. The digital tools presented in this site will eventually facilitate access to high-resolution images of the manuscripts. It is our hope that the textual resources presented on our site will be used to further both research and teaching in epic studies.
