Description

The source material for researching saints’ cults in the Middle Ages is large and varied, ranging from documents and texts to material evidence and popular tradition. Developments within digital technology have opened up new possibilities for working with comprehensive sets of different data in order to grasp this immense source material in its entirety. This session explores how three research projects apply digital methods to research on saints' cults, in particular, mapping (GIS), digitization of cultural heritage, and database design and knowledge organization (i.e. open linked data) for historical analyses.
