Archives of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei

The Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei has made two parts of its historical archives available on the web, on two separate webpages:

  • The Edizione elettronica dei Rendiconti e delle Memorie gives access to the minutes of the academy from the years 1847-1856 (Atti dell'Accademia Pontifica dei Nuovi Lincei), which can be searched with two tools:
    • a summary overview for each year, with a brief indication of topics and speakers
    • an alphabetical index of keywords (ricerca termini significativi)
    Clicking on any such summary or keyword will open a new browser window, in which scans of the original printed minutes can be read page per page.
  • The Catalogo delle corrispondenze dei Soci Lincei does not give access to primary sources, but is a database in which the catalogue of the correspondence of members of the academy from the period of the Risorgimento until 1998 can be searched by dates and the names of authors and recipients of letters. As no comprehensive index of names is provided, the database cannot be browsed but is useful only for searches for letters to- or from specific persons.
