Latin Student, Joseph Bradshaw, Creates Documentary on Boise State Historia Scholastica Project

The Historia Scholastica Project (“HSP”) is the ongoing transcription and translation of Boise State University’s 547 year-old copy of Peter Comestor’s Historia Scholastica. HSP was designed to give second and third-year Latin students hands-on experience transcribing original Latin and to make the medieval text accessible to Boise State scholars and students. A third and crucial aspect of HSP centers on the comparison of the Boise State Text with extant and easily accessible publications, such as Harvard’s Patrilogia Latina 198, the 1543 Lugdenensis (Lyons) copy accessible through Wikimedia Commons, and the Iowa copy owned by the University of Iowa.
