Read an Elizabethan Manuscript Online for the First Time!

To celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, a rare manuscript has been been brought to light with the collaboration of the British Library and the Hellenic Institute at Royal Holloway. Originally, it was written in Greek for Elizabeth I in 1566, praising her father, King Henry VIII. Now, it is being dedicated to Elizabeth II, and made viewable online!

The full manuscript, with accompanying transliteration, edition, English translation and historical notes on the text and author can be viewed on the Hellenic Institute's website.
