The Chronicle of Matthew of Edessa is a twelfth-century Armenian
history that survives in 43 manuscripts, held in ten libraries in
eight countries. My task is to create a definitive text that is based
on all of them. I will talk about the problems of medieval text
editing, the ways in which Perl and phylogenetics have come to my
rescue, and show a few pretty pictures of manuscripts
