After I graduated in classical studies at the University Lyon 3 in 2012, and passed the « Agrégation de grammaire », I continued my studies by learning digital humanities at the « Ecole des Chartes » in Paris. I am currently a PhD student in Old French (linguistic and literature). My PhD thesis, directed by C. Füg-Pierreville and by B. Bureau, aims to produce a native digital edition of the hagiographic works “Li seint confessor” of Wauchier de Denain from BnF MS 412. The author is known to be the second continuator of Chretien de Troyes’ Quest of the Holy Grail.
My critical edition will offer access to this alternative hagioghraphic work of the Golden Legend that has never been edited as a whole. As an XML TEI edition, the encoding and generally the technology will support: visualisation development, in the form of a facsimile and a normalised edition, critical apparatus development, parallelisation of the different forms of the texts: Latin sources, critical edition and translations, as well as API support. I also would like to support my linguistic commentary of the text with the use of treebanking, stylometry and comparable tools.
