Lexicon of Scholarly Editing


The Lexicon of Scholarly Editing is a freely accessible multilingual academic resource that offers definitions for contested concepts in the field of Scholarly Editing and Textual Criticism. Rather than writing new definitions for theoretical concepts, however, the Lexicon collects and quotes existing definitions, and lets those definitions speak for themselves. To achieve this goal, the definitions of each concept are ordered chronologically, and rendered in their original language. As such, the Lexicon aims to display these definitions as if in a multilingual discussion with one another – which, in some cases, they quite literally are.
