e-corpus.org is back on-line

After months this server is back online. It was announced for the end of October, but the time out was prolonged and prolonged again. Finally you can open the page again. Please try:


The servers host digitised manuscripts of the Romanian Academy of Science (Bucharest) and of Sainte Catherine's Monastery (Sinai, Egypt). But so far the old links do no longer work (including those of the domaine www.studite.org), neither do the links of the whole page.

Please let's use this discussion to keep up to date.

  • "studite.org" was bought by a Chinese agency for funerals!

  • The typical end

    The domaine "e-corpus.org" after a disfunctional period of its pseudo-existence has been abandoned again and is now available on the web-market!

    The associated page of the Romanian Academy of Science:


    has now dissapeared with the same promise "it will be back soon"...

  • The whole homepage has been completely shut down!

    This means that the reproduction of RO-Ba Ms. gr. 953 is no longer online, it is not present at http://medievalia.com.ro.

  • I do not know what is always going wrong with this page, but it is more than evident that this project still lacks a competent informatic...

  • The viewers usually were on studite.org, but these links do not work any longer... Just check it out!

    Now you can find the manuscripts on e-corpus—like the sticherarion at the collection of the Romanian Academy:


    But if you try to load one of the later pages, you will find out that it does still not work properly... Certain pictures cannot be loaded in the viewer. They originally said they will have fixed it until October 2016, now we have June 2017, and it is still not working, as it did once...

    The only thing you can do is to switch to the turning-pages viewer which has not even a navigation function to jump to the last folio, but you can jump by typing the page in the bar at the bottom. If you type 603 you will get the double page view of folios 300v-301r!

  • Merci beaucoup, c'est une bonne nouvelle !

  • Finally this page is back to normal (which in fact means incredibly slow)!

    Here all the digitised manuscripts of the Romanian Academy:


    Here all the digitised manuscripts of Sinai (which in fact belong to the microfilm collection of Leuven):


  • At least the collection of manuscripts from Sinai, as it had been documented for the American Library of Congress in 1950-1952, is now online. See this discussion.

    An expedition to Sainte Catherine's Monastery in 1950 (the Greek, Arabic, Syriac, Ethiopic, Slavoni…
    Just about the collection of Georgian manuscripts, Stig Frøyshov (2012, 236) wrote: The ancient collection counts today 86 codices. It was photograph…
  • What a hopeless case!

  • The link to the Syriac sticherarion (ET-MSsc Ms. Syr. 261) is working:


    but the pictures do not load.
