Digital editng and the printed book – methodological and practical perspectives on the hybrid-edition of the manuscript Pa 1139
Konstanin Voigt (Uni Freiburg)
Digital editions overcome the limitations of the book format. They free the presentation of materials from the
topography of the page, from static production deadlines and limited storage capacity of the printed book.
Therefore, they allow for a potentially complete representation of the remnants of a certain past — such as all the
extant versions of a certain piece of music, the complete library of a certain institution etc. Having completeness
and user-defined arrangement as their specific potential, digital editions tend to leave the selective evaluation of
the material to the readers. The gain of quantitative delimitation comes at the price of qualitative selections which
traditionally defined the (implicit) historiographic programs of editions. By the power of exclusion and inclusion,
the limitations of the book-format also define its authority. Hybrid editions comprising both printed and digital
elements promise a combination of the authority of the printed book with the comprehensive and dynamic
network of open-source digital access. In this contribution, the concept of the hybrid-edition of the manuscript Pa
1139 within the Corpus Monodicum is presented as an attempt to understanding edition both as historiographic
selection and faithful representation of the network-character of medieval transmission.
