The parchments preserved at the Castel Nuovo of Naples, a fascinating and complex history

The fonds of parchments in question is nowadays at the Castel Nuovo, a fortress which is an authentic symbol of the royal dynasties of the Kingdom of Naples. More precisely, the charters are preserved by the Biblioteca della Società Napoletana di Storia Patria (BSNSP) that has its premises in the same fortress. I like to think of this fonds as of a precious shrine because it contains a rich documentation coming from copious private archives as well as from religious institutions in South Italy which ended up for diverse reasons in the library of the Society (http://www.storiapatrianapoli.it/). At last, this documentation now comes to light thanks to its digital archive on Monasterium.Net (http://monasterium.net:8181/mom/IT-BSNSP/archive). Open the shrine.

Two weeks ago, on 15 November 2016, the already 3rd #MOMathon16 took place, organized within the EU-funded project co:op.

The MOMathon is an online event concerned with the Monasterium portal – Europe’s virtual charters archive.

So anyone was able to participate after a short registration on the MOMathon-Webpage. MOMathon: Citizen Science at monasterium.net weiterlesen

King Stefan Uroš II Milutin confirms to the monastery of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Ratac the grant of six villages donated by his mother, Queen Jelena. Serbian Medieval Documents in the State Archives of Venice 1306-03-15_cca_Milutin, in: monasterium.net, URL http://monasterium.net/mom/SerbMedDocsInVenice/1306-03-15_cca_Milutin/charter, accessed at 2016-02-15+01:00.

 

From the 13th to the 15th century the Serbian Nemanjid dynasty and its successor states (the Serbian Despotate and the Balšić and Crnojević regional lordships) maintained a strong presence on the southeastern Adriatic seaboard, establishing close political and economic contacts with the leading maritime power of the period – the Republic of Venice. As a result, the vast medieval documentary heritage preserved in the State Archives of Venice also includes 25 documents issued by Serbian authors from the year 1208 to 1460, which are presented in this collection through archival and diplomatic descriptions as well as images acquired from the owning institution.
