Codices Electronici Ecclesiae Coloniensis / Electronical codices of the Church of Cologne (CEEC)

The codices of the Church of Cologne means the holdings of the Episcopal Library and the Cathedral Library of Cologne. Historians call books codices when they consist of quires of different leaves, most of the codices are made of parchment (hide). The term codex also serves as distinction of the form, e.g. a role. Furthermore codices are written by hand, contrary to the printed book. An electronical codex is the digitised form, the image of the real codex, and the user can turn over the digitized pages like a real book and in this meaning we have electronical codices.
