A medieval Armenian manuscript held in Cambridge was rebound in the 18th century. The pages are out of order and in some cases upside-down. A specialist in Armenian paleography and codicology wants to create a digital surrogate that corrects these errors.

  • Work with IT staff to get the manuscript online, using either an existing digitization pipeline or the Docker images and metadata transformation tools

  • Load the manuscript into the manifest editor

  • Drag and rotate the images to create a new semantic sequence

  • Present the two sequences side by side in an online viewer

  • The result: A digital reconstruction that allows the manuscript to be read and understood without erasing its codicological history
