Abstract

The session seeks to describe methods of retrieval of medieval source material and the reconstruction of historic landscapes and environments. The Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften aims to reconstruct the history of medieval, currently lost, or disintegrated libraries by designing virtual catalogues for historic library collections, whereas the archival support in the Archdiocese of Paderborn aims to give a view over a multitude of small local parish archives and thereby an entire landscape of ecclesiastical history.
