The Lazarus Project
The Lazarus Project is a multi-institutional international collaboration between imaging scientists, humanities faculty, graduate students, and independent consultants. We work to recover damaged manuscripts and other heritage objects through the use of various imaging technologies, primarily multi-spectral. This collaboration in textual science produces a new digital surrogate which can be studied by scholars around the world. The Lazarus Project has recently completed projects in Chartres, France; Vercelli, Italy; the National Library of Wales and the University of Cambridge as well as American projects at institutions such as the Beinecke Library and the Folger Shakespeare Library.
