- Heir to the collections of the kings of France, the Bibliothèque nationale de France holds one of the largest collections of medieval manuscripts in the world, with nearly 40,000 documents. This collection, which continues to grow through purchases and donations, covers all fields of knowledge and includes many illuminated manuscripts. The BnF preserves and promotes this collection through its online resources (Archives and Manuscripts catalog, Gallica digital library, Mandragore database). The BnF also leads or participates in numerous national or international research programs and uses artificial intelligence technologies to exploit manuscript corpora in order to support new research practices and new appropriations of this French medieval heritage.
