The DMMapp (Digitized Medieval Manuscripts App) is a website that links to more than 300 libraries in the world. Each one of these contains medieval manuscripts that can be browsed for free. The DMMapp is a product of Sexy Codicology, an independent project focused on medieval illuminated manuscripts and social media. It maintains a great blog about medieval manuscripts, especially those that are available online.

Oh my god this is fantastic. I can't even be witty about it; it's that fantastic.

What a cool project. I added a missing library, The Reynolds Historical Library at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, which holds a manuscript that contains what may well be the oldest mead recipe in the English language.

I read that title as Medieval Menstrual Cramps. I don't even know how. Clearly it's time to go home.

Glad to see this one make the Blue! For corresponding transcriptions and some translations, the Carolingian Canon Law Project is a good companion.
