The ubiVoid website contains a small but constantly increasing set of medieval literary texts reworded into modern languages.
All the presented materials are shared under a Creative Commons licence.
We have chosen a neat and user-friendly layout, with the original text and the paraphrase displayed side by side. When necessary, tooltips can be shown that contain explanations or additional information.
Medieval works are well-known, and often hated, for their huge dimensions. This is why we have decided to focus on a selection of the most frequently read passages, which are also the nicest. To enable the reader to integrate these passages into the right context, the general plot is also provided.
Our intention is to further expand this collection with texts from different European countries, each reworded into the corresponding modern language, hopefully accompanied by an English translation.
