Project Status: Complete

Published by the University of the Basque Country, the Becerro Galicano Digital project provides a digital edition, facsimile, and downloadable data derived from the cartulary. The Becerro Galicano is an extensive cartulary from the monastery of San Millan de la Cogolla, which is situated in the Rioja area on the border between Navarre and Castille. The monastery played a large role in the history of large swathes of northern-central Spain (Navarre, Rioja, Basque Country, Castile), and the Becerro is one of the most important sources for the region’s history from the 8th century to the 13th century.

The digital project provides an image of each folio of the manuscript in addition to an accompanying critical text. The website also makes available a bibliography on the cartulary as well as a brief introduction to its importance. Data from the project, including the critical text and indices of names and places, can be downloaded in RTF and TEI format. The website is available in Spanish, English, and Basque.
