Notes for users
The digital edition presents the entire manuscript transmission of the Kaiserchronik, both known and extant, in dual format: digital facsimiles of the manuscripts (where these are still extant) on the one hand, transcriptions of the manuscript text on the other. Manuscripts now lost or presumed missing are represented by historic transcriptions or microfilms.
The transcriptions reproduce the manuscript text without editorial emendation or punctuation; they are therefore not a critical text. Such a text, for each of Recensions A, B, and C, will be presented in the planned synoptic edition of the Kaiserchronik (see Project Description).
