I am looking over the Latin word list, which is helpful. I have ordered some books on the Medival Latin, which is the 1200's to the mid 1600's.
One thing I know for sure is there is a transition of the style of writting, depending on the time period and especially the country and even the region. Like Northern Italy vs. Southern Italy.
I have been reading a few chapters from a book that details a survey on all written scripts in Western Europe. I am only studing the ones of Semitextualis In Italy and Gothic- Antiqua in Italy, which talks about the transition from the 1200's to the mid 1600's.
I am trying to get better prepared for my next trip to the Treviso State Archive. Much of my research now is getting down to the early 1600's.
I am researching a Vendrame family that I am sure goes back to the 1200's. Everything about them is listed as Posiente.
I saw this one book of sorts, all hand pened by the "Notio" in the 1500's that was off the scale for reading.
Do you know of any web sites that have a version of the actual hand writting of Vogular Latin to Latin to Medival Latin, in regards to the research words?

Dear Trevisan I have a limited knowledge of the subject matter but am familiar with the possible sources for the specific information you are seeking.
If you go to www.fornieditore.com and review their general catalogue under index by Subjects (linguistics medieval, law etc) and by local history under Tre Venezie whichincludes Treviso. The local History catalogue is further divided by specific cities and towns as well as provinces reflecting folklore, dialects, uses and customs, linguistics, heraldry, geography etc.
This antiquarian book dealer has agencies In Limena (Padova) at Angelo Vecchi & C.srl. Their e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
I have inthe past consulted with their book people on specific books that I sought and were very helpful and responsive. =Peter=
Dear Trevisan I was browsing thru the www.RSA.org website and wanted to draw to your attentionthat there are microfilm of the Corpus of indexes to printed catalogues of Latin manuscripts thru 1600. Since you are headed in this direction I thought that perhaps this might be helpful as well. =Peter=
