Other projects: Descriptions of Rome

No Comments

From time to time we come across other projects that are related to ours…or just plain interesting. This one is kind of both: Corpus elettronico delle descrizioni di Roma by Ilaria Bonincontro and hosted by CISADU at the Università degli Studi di Roma “La Sapienza”.

This project collects descriptions of the city of Rome from the end of the 13th till the beginning of the 15th century. It includes hypertext versions of several texts along with two clickable maps. Key words are indexed across all sources, so you can easily find all references to a particular keyword, for example, Concordia. You can also see lists of all indexed terms, organized topically.

It’s not a new site, but it is a good one.

PS We’re keeping track of these projects on a separate page.

Hello world!

The Rome Research Group is a collection of projects involved in exploring various features of the city of Rome and the world it influenced. Working broadly in the world of the Digital Humanities, current projects are mapping the street shrines (edicole sacre) of Rome, built beginning in the Medieval period, and the temples of the ancient Roman world.
