Abstract

In 2013 the database of Medieval Memoria Online Project was launched. The aim of the project was to catalogue and describe objects and written sources from the Netherlands that all played a key role in the commemoration of the dead. The database proved to be a great success, helping many researchers and inspiring others. In this session three scholars will present research that was conducted using the MeMO database.
