In manuscript copies, how to encode the date of origin of the original?

Mathias Müller
Dear all

We are TEI-encoding medieval law manuscripts, making use of all the elements of the "msdescription" module. I have a question about how to encode dates related to those manuscripts.

For original manuscripts, I have encoded the date as follows (showing only the relevant part of the header):

         <sourceDesc>
            <msDesc>
               <msIdentifier>
                  <repository>Sample Holdings</repository>
                  <idno>ex12345</idno>
               </msIdentifier>
               <history>
                  <origin>
                     <origDate>1589</origDate>
                  </origin>
               </history>
            </msDesc>
         </sourceDesc>

But for manuscripts that are copies of older manuscripts, we have the following requirement: we need to encode both the date of origin of the copy and the date of origin of the original that the copy refers to. I am not sure how to encode both in the same header.

Hence my question:

While encoding a copy of an original manuscript, how to properly represent both the date of creation of the copy and the original manuscript? Both should be present in our TEI documents, but clearly separated from each other.

I am glad to give additional information if needed.

Thanks in advance and kind regards
Mathias

Dear Mathias,

How about this:

<history>
<origin>
<origDate>1589</origDate>
<date type="original">...</date>
</origin>
</history>

Best,
Franz

Shouldn't that be @type="copy"?

No, if I understand correctly, history/origin/origDate should contain the date of the manuscript that is being encoded, regardless of whether it is a copy or not. Is this the correct interpretation?

In reply to this post by John T Young
If I didn't misunderstood Mathias the manuscript in question (actually described) is a copy.
<origDate> would thus refer to that copy.

I agree "origin date" (of a copy) and "date of the original" (a different manuscript) is confusing.
@type="copy" on <origDate> might help to avoid confusion:

<history>
<origin>
<origDate type="copy" when="1589"/>
<date type="original" when="1555"/>
</history>

Re: In manuscript copies, how to encode the date of origin of the original?

Matthew James Driscoll
In reply to this post by Mathias Müller

I think I would probably use <filiation>, which is intended to contain information on a manuscript’s “relationship to other surviving manuscripts of the same text”. Within <filiation> you can have <origDate>, or indeed a whole <msDesc>. Alternatively, you could point to another <msDesc>, the one for the source (the antigraph), and also the other way, from the original to the copy.

Re: In manuscript copies, how to encode the date of origin of the original?

B E Quessel
In reply to this post by Franz Fischer-2

If this is the description of a  _copy_ of an older manuscript would it not be more logical to have two separate records - one for the original and one for the copy, each with their own date of origin plus appropriate pointers in the respective <filiation > elements? The copy record would point to the antigraph, the record for the original would point to the apograph. I thought that what filiation is for. Or am I misunderstanding the problem here?

But for manuscripts that are copies of older manuscripts, we have the following requirement: we need to encode both the date of origin of the copy and the date of origin of the original that the copy refers to. I am not sure how to encode both in the same header.

Hence my question:

While encoding a copy of an original manuscript, how to properly represent both the date of creation of the copy and the original manuscript? Both should be present in our TEI documents, but clearly separated from each other.

I am glad to give additional information if needed.

Thanks in advance and kind regards
Mathias

Re: In manuscript copies, how to encode the date of origin of the original?

If this is the description of a  _copy_ of an older manuscript would it not be more logical to have two separate records - one for the original and one for the copy, each with their own date of origin plus appropriate pointers in the respective <filiation > elements?

Yes, we do have two separate records for the original manuscript and the copy. But it is a requirement that in the TEI-encoded version of the manuscript copy, there is a reference to the date when the original manuscript was created. I was asking how to best represent the latter.

The copy record would point to the antigraph, the record for the original would point to the apograph. I thought that what filiation is for. Or am I misunderstanding the problem here?

No, you understood perfectly well. Thanks for pointing out the <filiation> element!

Dear Mathias,

How about this:

<history>
<origin>
<origDate>1589</origDate>
<date type="original">...</date>
</origin>
</history>

Best,
Franz

Dear all

We are TEI-encoding medieval law manuscripts, making use of all the elements of the "msdescription" module. I have a question about how to encode dates related to those manuscripts.

For original manuscripts, I have encoded the date as follows (showing only the relevant part of the header):

         <sourceDesc>
            <msDesc>
               <msIdentifier>
                  <repository>Sample Holdings</repository>
                  <idno>ex12345</idno>
               </msIdentifier>
               <history>
                  <origin>
                     <origDate>1589</origDate>
                  </origin>
               </history>
            </msDesc>
         </sourceDesc>
