Dear Colleagues,

The Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse & Celtic, at the University of
Cambridge, has launched, eSenchas, a new resource for the study of medieval

Senchas ( /'ʃɛnχəs/ ) was the term used in medieval Irish for the
accumulation of tales, history, tradition and other information which the
learned classes drew on and composed to explore Ireland’s past. This
website aims to provide the modern equivalent: Electronic Senchas, or
eSenchas. It gathers together a comprehensive range of digital tools which
can be used to study, analyse and interpret medieval Irish texts.

eSenchas is intended as a resource for both specialists and
non-specialists. The medieval Irish literary corpus offers a wealth of
material to be explored: whether you are discovering this material for the
first time, or wish to analyse a particular lexicographical detail, the
digital resources provided here are designed to assist you.

The new website can be found at:


Best regards,

Niall O'Leary

Edition Visualization Technology

EVT 2 beta 1, aka "The Halloween release", is available for download 
with many new features: improved support for critical editions (critical 
apparatus also available in a dedicated text frame, apparatus fontium, 
support for multiple recensions), initial support for named entities, 
initial support for a working area, and more. As for previous versions 
the starting point is a TEI P5 document holding your critical or 
diplomatic edition, support for the latter is still incomplete since the 
EVT 1 features porting is currently under way.

Full announcement available here: 

As usual, the latest archive can be downloaded from SourceForge:
