PhDr. Vladimír Spáčil made available the unique collection of charters of fond Town Olomouc Archive, deposited in the State District Archive in Olomouc, in the form of abstract catalog. PhDr. Vladimír Spáčil intended to make the edition of seals, but the idea has just recently come to realization. The catalog of seals has gradually been created thanks to initiative of PhDr. Karl Müller, the director of the Regional Archives in Opava. A total of 2,528 seals will be divided into thematic groups, e.g. Rulers and Ruling Princes, Nobility, Towns, etc. The dividing of the seals will make the orientation in sigillographic material easier. There were demonstrated examples of individual groups and example of the abstract, which accompanies every seal, at the workshop. The researcher gains the basic information about the seal, the frequency and the picture of the seal, which is indispensable. Photographs will be available on the website of archive.
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. The South Italian charters preserved at the Biblioteca della Società Napoletana di Storia Patria are now accessible for all on Monasterium.net weiterlesen
