xistercian – Cistercian numerals in LaTeX
This package allows you to use Cistercian numerals in LaTeX. The glyphs are created using PGF, and to a certain degree configurable.
Cistercian numerals are a number system developed by Cistercian monks in the late Middle Ages. They can describe numbers up to 9999 as a single glyph.
You can use Cistercian numerals as page numbers using \pagenumbering{cistercian}. The two main macros are:
- \cistercian{<counter>} formats the LaTeX2ε counter as a Cistercian numeral,
- \cisterciannum{<integer>} formats the integer (given as a string) as a Cistercian numeral.
