Abstract

The project ‘Digitising Patterns of Power (DPP)’ is hosted at the Institute for Medieval Research of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and unites as a cluster project various experts from the fields of Medieval History, Byzantine Studies, Historical Geography, Archaeology, Geography, Cartography, Geographical Information Science (GISc), and Software Engineering. DPP compares five regions of the Medieval World, which on the one hand have their specific written and archaeological sources documenting different forms of ‘otherness’ (e.g. in power enforcement, political or ecclesiastical patterns of power, social relations etc.), but on the other hand enable a systemic comparison through time and space.
