In cooperation with IfL Leipzig, IOS Regensburg, JGU Mainz and EHESS Paris - The project develops and tests concepts for the collection, modeling and visualization of site-specific historical information from the Holy Roman Empire (of the German nation). It thus makes a contribution to historical research on the Old Empire as a space of overlapping rulership, as well as to the further development of digital analysis and visualization of historical data with temporal-spatial properties.
In the conception phase for the establishment of the HERMES Data Competence Centre, the IEG, together with the collaborative partners, is designing learning opportunities, research activities and networking formats to meet the need for education, training and continuing education, practice-oriented consultancy and interdisciplinary networking in the field of research in the humanities and cultural sciences as well as in nearby application-oriented fields of activity (especially in GLAM institutions).
This project aims to transform the data, in accordance with the FAIR principles, that is made available on the website Europäische Friedensverträge der Vormoderne online. This website provides information about a total of 1800 European peace treaties that originated between 1450 and 1789. The data, comprising digital images of the peace treaties as well as metadata and, in a more limited number of cases, transcriptions and even formal editions of their text, is currently stored in a relational database.
