Index personarum in CroALaBib

The bibliography branch of the Croatica et Tyrolensia project collects data on people and works connected with Croatian Latin. Following recommendations from the Cookbook of the SNAP:DRGN project, we have started putting our digital data online in a slightly more usable form (currently it exists in an XML database). The SNAP:DRGN Cookbook says:

The first task is to put your prosopography online, with stable URIs for as many entities as you can identify (person, name, source etc.). You need to be able to point (…) and reliably/persistently find (…) your record. This may be no more than an HTML page intended for human consumption.

For CroALaBib persons, this is now possible through the Index personarum on Now the URL leads to data we have collected on Andrija Jamometić. The links and pages were created with a BaseX XML database instance, using the Bootstrap HTML framework.

Among the 1468 persons listed, there are some Italians and some other authors (e. g. Aristotle). They are included either because they were the audience of Croatian authors, or Croatian writers translated their works. Additions to the CroALaBib prosopography are expected soon — we will publish a list of persons involved with the Latin school drama.
