  • Updates of current databases

We will be pleased to keep you posted on the most recent updates of our online databases hosted on Brepolis.

Database of Latin Dictionaries: Important update

We are glad to announce that the Database of Latin Dictionaries‘ new interface has been launched. This change of interface not only allows for more advanced search options (including, for instance, the possibility to look for phrases rather than just single headwords), but it also includes a first version of the Brepolis Latin lemmas, prepared by the Centre ‘Traditio Litterarum Occidentalium’ in order to strengthen the link between dictionaries and attestations in the full-text databases.

If you are already a DLD user and want to know what are the main differences between the old and the new search interface, we invite you to have a look at this short video:

Sources Chrétiennes Online: new update

The Sources Chrétiennes Online (SCO) database has been updated. It now provides source texts and French translations from 523 of the almost 630 printed volumes.

Notable additions are Richard Rolle’s Melos amoris, the monastic works of Hildegard of Bingen, and Cyprian of Carthage’s work on the Unity of the Church. Furthermore, for two volumes that originally offered only a translation (SC 6 and 9), the Greek source text has now been added to the database.

By 2025, the SCO database will cover all volumes by then published in print in the long-running Sources Chrétiennes edition project.

Researching monarchy and coronations in BBIH

On the occasion of the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla, we created two new BBIH online reading lists focusing on the history of monarchy and coronations in Britain and Ireland, the first one covering the period up to 1485 (Medieval monarchy – 375 publications), and the second one from 1485 to the present day (Monarchy, Tudor to Windsor – 606 publications).

The lists specifically covers:

  • “Succession, royal”, a subcategory of Monarchy (within Political, administrative and legal history)
  • “Coronations”, a subcategory of Ceremonies (within Other topics)

Professor Philip Murphy and Dr Emily Ward each wrote an accompanying blog post on the IHR website:
