The reading of Chilean historical and literary manuscripts presents high complexity challenges coming from the handwriting as well as the semantic and lexical interpretation of the texts. It seems that historians and scholars of both Colonial and Modern Literature do not know that those documents are not only ancient, but that they represent a determine moment in the history of the language. Consequently, having specific training is needed like in any other
scientific research.
