Scribe Database

By Matthias Röder.

About this project

The purpose of the Scribe Database is to help musicologists identify music copyists or scribes of Bach's music. The system is, however, flexible enough to be applied to the identification of scribes of other composers' music. It contains all information relevant to the scribes, their handwriting characteristics, manuscripts, and the libraries in which they are to be found.

Information can be obtained via numerous searching tools which are discussed in detail in the tutorial.Please choose from one of the links below to learn more about the functionality of this database system.
