II. Regesta search

Is structured into a simple full-text search and the more comprehensive expert search. The simple search makes use of the well-known logic of a google search. The star symbol (*) may be used at the beginning or end of the search terms as a placeholder.
We advise you to use the expert search in order to get more accurate results.

The search form for the expert search makes a differentiation of the search possible:

  • forkeywords: any number of keywords, automatic linking with „and“.
  • forphrases: searching for exact phrases (e.g. Friedrich von der Pfalz“)
  • forplaces of issue
  • Additional search fields may be activated here in order to process search requests with the existing linkings/limitations AND, OR, NOT (e.g. Searching for "Wein", NOT "Weinsberg", NOT "Weinheim").

further search options

  • limitations, which fields shall be searched: text of regesta, traditions- or comments, addendums
    Please note: Those text fields are not featured in all volumes
  • You can search for places of issue via the selectable Option next to the search field
  • Searching fordating and time periods: You can distinguish in a very detailed way by years, months and days.
