The Database of Byzantine Book Epigrams (DBBE)
The Database of Byzantine Book Epigrams (DBBE) is an ongoing project that makes available both textual and contextual data of book epigrams - also known as “metrical paratexts” - from medieval Greek manuscripts dating up to the fifteenth century. We define book epigrams as poems in and on books: they have as subject the very manuscript in which they are found, elaborating on its production, contents and use.

We distinguish between two kinds of textual material, namely occurrences and types. Further explanation of our definitions and working principles is to be found on the Help page. A technical guide to the use of DBBE is to be found on the Search tips and tricks page.
