Cristina Sobral

The Corpus of Ancient Texts provides online paleographic editions of texts originally written in portuguese or translated to portuguese up to 1525.



  • to  provide reliable data for  linguistic analysis;
  • to provide data  for study in the field of History of the book and textual transmission;
  • to provide transcriptions suitable as the first stage for critical editions;
  • to provide comparative data for analysis of editions which may need revision or do not document  enough editorial choices;
  • to make available inedit texts or texts only known on editions that, by their antiquity or rarity, have become inaccessible.
