Project Regesta of Emperor Sigismund

The revision of emperor Sigismund of Luxembourg‘s regesta was started by the Viennese team in a third-party-project “Sigismund († 1437), emperor in the empire, in Hungary and Bohemia”, funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF in 2004. The revision was  continued between 2008 and 2012 in the FWF follow-up project “The distanced emperor: Sigismund of Luxembourg’s exercise of rule, networks and communication as emperor and king of the three empires Germany, Hungary and Bohemia. In the projects directed by Karel Hruza Sigismund’s deeds from Czech, Silesian and upper- and lower Lusatian archive inventories were recorded and processed as regesta. The revision’s first volume with regesta of deeds from archives in Moravia, and Czech-Silesia was published in 2012. Besides, the Hungarian regesta of Zsigmondkori Oklevéltár (record book of Sigismund’s time) were translated for a publication on Regest Imperii-Online and revised. Additionally research has been carried out on the governance and an international conference has been organised in Brno in 2007, whose results were published as a supplement of the Regesta Imperii in 2012. The research into Sigismund’s governance in the FWF funded third-party-project “Quest for a balance of power: Sigismund’s policy 1214-1418“ directed again by Karel Hruzal in Vienna, has been extended once more in 2014. The received sum of the three FWF projects on Sigismund totals at 1.276.969 €.  The establishment of an additional office at the Masaryk University in Brno in 2011 under the leadership of Dr. Petr Elbel, who used to work at the Viennese projects, stated a great success of the Viennese revision of Sigismund’s deeds. The work is being continued on the basis of the Czech third-party-projects directed by Petr Elbel: The project “Emperor Sigismund's Charters for Czech Recipients: Tradition and Innovation in Late Medieval Diplomatics“ (GAČR, Nr. P405/11/0639), within whose framework a volume with regesta from West, Nord and East Bohemian archives and libraries as well as a volume with regesta from South Bohemian archives and libraries was completed, ran from 2011 until 2014. The work on materials from the archives and libraries in Prague and Central Bohemia has been started.  In addition research into selected kinds of deeds by Sigusmund to Bohemian receivers and into the counterfeits by Kaspar Schlick and Ulrich von Rosenberg was published. The project “Emperor Sigismund’s party in Hussite Bohemia“(GAČR, Nr. GA15-14758S), has been running in Brno since January 2015.  Within this project three volumes with regesta from the archives and libraries in Prague and Central Bohemia are being compiled and prosopographic research into Sigismund’s party in Bohemia and into his Bohemian courtiers is being carried out.
