THE REAPPEARANCES OF ST. BASIL THE GREAT IN BRITISH LIBRARY MS COTTON OTHO B. X*
Abstract. We illustrate how digital technology can help restore greviously damaged, practically inaccessible, medieval manuscripts. Our example was an important version of the Old English Life of St. Basil the Great now clinging to existence in charred, illegible, disordered, and strangely dispersed fragments.
Key words: digital restoration; ultraviolet imaging; 3D imaging; editing tools
