Charters and Diplomatics: Links
- The Virtual Library contains an overview and well-commented collection of links on diplomatics.
Many university websites also have short introductions to diplomatics as an auxiliary science.
- Historical Auxiliary Disciplines of the Middle Ages from the Westfälischen Wilhelms-Universität Münster
- The Medieval Tutorial from the Universität Tübingen
- Thomas Frenz (Passau) has produced a bibliography on diplomatics and related fields with a particular emphasis on papal documents. You can also find there a bibliography of published charters. It’s organized alphabetically and sorted by geogrpahical keywords. So, for example: “Friedrich Schaltegger, Johannes Meyer, Ernst Leisi: Thurgauisches Urkundenbuch [to 1400], 8 Vol., Frauenfeld 1924-67” can be found under “THURGAUISCHES…”
- The Digtal Library Collction of the Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek has digitized, as part of a pilot project, the volume of plates Kaiserurkunden in Abbildungen (760-1570) by Sybel/Sickel (1893). It contains 364 images.
- Jürgen Sarnowsky in Hamburg is particularly interested in digital editions. “The Virtual Prussian Book of Charters: Regesta and Texts on the History of Prussian and German Orders” already contains more than 6,000 entries.
