Bibliotheca Arnamagnæana and Editiones Arnamagnæanæ are
series committed to the further study and publication
of the manuscripts found in The Arnamagnæan Collection.
The collection, bequeathed to the University
of Copenhagen upon the death of Árni Magnússon in
1730, comprises c. 2,500 manuscripts, with the oldest
ones dating back to the 12th century. The majority
of the manuscripts are in Icelandic, but there are also
manuscripts in Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and other
languages. Bibliotheca Arnamagnæana publishes scholarly
monographs on the basis of material from the collection,
while Editiones Arnamagnæanæ is concerned with
the publication of critical text editions. The series are
published by The Arnamagnæan Commission, which
was established in 1772.
