PhiloBiblon: A Union Catalog for the Study of the Literature and Culture of Medieval and Early Modern Spain

The upgrading and enhancement of a Web-based bio-bibliographical database, PhiloBiblon, which currently provides access to major projects on the culture of medieval and early modern Spain.

This project seeks to enhance web access to an existing 30-year-old bio-bibliographical database, PhiloBiblon, which currently serves as a vehicle for four major bibliographical projects (containing a total of more than 270,000 records), three on the Romance vernaculars of medieval and early modern Spain, which record all texts written before 1516 in Spanish, Catalan, Galician and Portuguese (except purely notarial documents), and one on Golden Age lyric poetry. The existing web site was created in 1997 on the basis of an earlier version of the underlying PhiloBiblon dbms. An integral part of the project is the augmentation of the data in PhiloBiblon's component bibliographies by the four bibliographical research terms, who are providing significant in-kind contributions. PhiloBiblon records the nature, state, and location of all surviving witnesses of each text and offers extensive authority files, institutional and biographical information, and secondary bibliographical sources.
