In December 2021, the latest volume of the Kurtrierisches Jahrbuch was published. It contains a wide range of contributions on the history and culture of the Trier region. Two articles discuss important manuscripts from the holdings of the Scientific Library of the City of Trier. The "Evangeliar von St. Maria ad martyres" is said to have belonged to Emperor Charlemagne himself. A travel report by Peter Fasbender, a citizen of Koblenz, describes his experiences on his journey to the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem in 1493.
This manuscript has only been partially researched and is the subject of the dissertation project of the author Maria Dötsch. In collaboration with Claudia Bamberg and Matthias Bremm, an edition report on the project has been published. In the article, the authors explore the question of how the virtual research environment FuD can be used for the digital edition of Fasbender's manuscript.
