Zsigmondkori Oklevéltár

As results from two Viennese third-party funded projects (2004-2012) on the Zsigmondkori Oklevéltar (record book from the Sigismund era) the following are available as online publications:

Department XIII: Frederick III

  • Online-Supplements to Issue 6 [Die Urkunden und Briefe aus den Archiven des Kantons Zürich (vornehmlich aus dem Staatsarchiv Zürich), bearb. von Alois Niederstätter, Wien-Köln 1989], bearb. von Christian Sieber, Zürich 2005.
  • Material collections of the offices "Regesta Emperor Frederick III (1440-1493)" of the German Comission for the Edition of the Regesta Imperii e.V. at the Academy of Sciences and Literature in Mainz and interacademy projects.

    The database includes about 30.000 proofs of deeds of the Hapsburgian (1440-1493), which to a great extent have not been published yet. The data pool, which consists of archival records, reference works and evidence from the secondary literature, is integrated into the entire research offer via linking with the regesta database and the RI-Opac. Since the database as a work-in-progress-project is constantly being added to, corrected and expanded, it does not raise a claim on textual or formal validity.
