Welcome to research pages with materials related to medieval liturgical repertory and manuscripts from Bohemia.

This website provides free access to following databases and additional materials:

  • Manuscripti Liturgici Ecclesiae Pragensis: a catalogue of liturgical manuscripts that includes descriptions of ca 70 liturgical books from the eighth to the mid-sixteenth century, purchased and written for the St Vitus' Cathedral in Prague or respecting the Cathedral's liturgical practice.
  • Index Sequentiarum Bohemiae Medii Aevi: a catalogue of sequences included in medieval liturgical manuscripts from Bohemia.  Up until 2018, c. 270 sequences were identified in medieval sources from Bohemia of primarily secular (non-monastic) origin. The project is supported by the program of the Czech Academy of Sciences "Strategy AV21 – Memory in the Digital Age: Digital Humanities."
  • Bibliography related to projects published on this website.  For international users, all Czech titles were translated into English.
