Welcome to The Annotated Star

The Annotated Star is a collaborative dynamic edition of Franz Rosenzweig’s Star of Redemption that combines: (1) the tradition of the critical edition; (2) an open-source, web-based text annotation and tagging interface; (3) and automated text-mining and text re-use detection.


You can view a prototype of our Annotation Platform here (this is very much work in progress, so please bear with us!)

Our goal is to create a new type of server-based, digital annotation tool that, using the Star of Redemption as a model, allows both scholarly and non-specialist communities to tag, analyze and discuss intertextual allusions and references.
