The article presents information about the Weingartner Liederhandschrift, a set of manuscripts dating from the 12th to the 14th centuries containing highly significant German Minnesongs in Middle High German. The collection resides in the state library of Württemberg in Stuttgart, Germany. Because it contains a miniature of the poet Walther von der Vogelweide, it is highly sought after by researchers and has deteriorated from being handled. Plans are underway to digitalize the collection.
