Monasterium.Net - Europe´s virtual documents archive

Monasterium.Net is "a virtual archive for all kinds of Middle Age and Early Modern Period primary sources" in the region of Central Europe. The emphasis of the collection is however on monasterial archives, in particular from Lower Austria.

The entire collection (about 250.000 documents) can be browsed per country (Austria, Switzerland, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia, Hungary and Italy) or via a text-searchable database. Documents are available in a transcribed version accompanied by a photo of the original.

Funding for this project comes from a variety of institutions, among which the European Union, Culture Programme 2007-2013, the Austrian State Ministry for Education, Art, and Culture, and Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.
