The community of the International Image Interoperability Framework™ has developed two standardized Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to open up the access for research to high-resolution images via the internet and the data sharing between worldwide image repositories. Work in progress: this site offers access to the digitized objects via the IIIF-APIs and Mirador, an image viewer and a research workspace. It is the objective of the Bavarian State Library (BSB) to provide access to all of our 1.5 million retrodigitized works (public domain) in a IIIF compliant way - initially the images and later on it is planned to provide also full texts, if available. Here you can find i.a. digitized medieval manuscripts (approx. 4,000) and incunabula (8,000), more than 1,000,000 newspaper issues and approx. 3,100 East Asian books and manuscripts.

For further information:

  • Information for developers about the usage of our APIs.
  • Examples of third party IIIF services see here.

Rore, Cipriano de: 26 Motets - BSB Mus.ms. B(1

The Flemish-born Cipriano de Rore (d. 1565) was the favourite composer of Albrecht V (duke 1550-1579), who appreciated him so much that he dedicated one of the two large-format illuminated magnificent manuscripts commissioned by him to Rore's motets. The choral book written on parchment, today known as "Rore Codex" with the signature Mus. ms. B comprises 153 large-format sheets. Rore was in Munich at the time of the codex's creation, providing the Duke with 26 secular and sacred motets with four to eight voices for the manuscript. The Rore Codex is the earliest source for 11 of the motets. On 82 pages there are miniatures executed by the court artist Hans Mielich (1516-1573), among them 8 full-page illuminations, including Rore's portrait at the end of the manuscript, for which the composer may have sat for the painter. The beginning of each composition is decorated with miniatures. The miniatures show mythological, historical and biblical scenes that refer to the texts set to music in the motets. // Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Musikabteilung, 2016
