Sub-project: Digitization of the Antiphonaries of the Chapter of St. Nicolas, Fribourg

September 2012 - April 2014

Status: Completed

Financed by: Chapter of St. Nicolas

Description: Antiphonaries are liturgical manuscripts of Gregorian chants which register the Liturgy of the Hours, as this was celebrated in the Middle Ages by the monks and canons of cathedral and collegiate chapters. Each Liturgy of the Hours consisted of a recitation of Psalms, linked together by antiphons, a reading, a hymn, and a prayer. The eight volumes of the St. Nicolas Antiphonaries, consisting of two sets of four volumes each, to be placed in front of the choir stalls, visible from both sides of the choir, were produced in the years 1509-1517 for the newly founded monastery of St. Nicolas in Fribourg and are among the finest examples of medieval Swiss antiphonaries. For the 500th anniversary of the Cathedral, the eight volumes were digitized and made available via e-codices. The antiphonaries have been digitized thanks to the financial support of the "the 4 pillars of Fribourg's economy" (Groupe E, BCF, ECAB and TPF).
