Serbian Medieval Documents in the State Archives of Venice on Monasterium

by Žarko Vujošević

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.

Co:op

Der Forschungsgegenstand dieses Weblogs ist das EU-Projekt co:op. co:op ist ein modernes und innovatives Projekt: Es baut auf den Erfahrungen seiner Mitglieder auf und wagt den Schritt über die zeitgemäße Zurverfügungstellung von Archivgut und die Dokumentation unserer gemeinsamen kulturellen und historischen Identität hinaus. Begründet durch das Internet und die damit einhergehende ständige Verfügbarkeit und Abrufbarkeit von Information ist es nicht nur wichtig, einen Zugang zu Wissen mit Hilfe der immer selbstverständlicher werdenden digitalen Hilfsmittel zu ermöglichen, sondern auch ein Augenmerk auf das sich neu eröffnende Potenzial zu richten: Eine differenzierte Produktion sowie eine umfassende Ergänzung von Wissen. So werden im Laufe des Projekts viele Aktivitäten umgesetzt, die diesen Ansprüchen gerecht werden. Ein großes Anliegen in diesem Zusammenhang ist der Einbezug der Bevölkerung (z.B. durch Crowdsourcing). Auch eine enge Zusammenarbeit mit und zwischen Archiven ist gefragt.
