Index of saints in Croatian Latin school drama

Saints often appear as characters in Croatian Latin school drama (which is mostly Jesuit). Here is how we index them in our digital bibliography. (A more technical note here.)

St Marianus, hermit and confessor of Berry, has until now received no identifier on the internet (though Fr Labbé wrote a page on him, available as a digital facsimile on BSB). Therefore his record has a digital ID / URL base exclusively in CroALa: croala.s.marianus.

On the other hand, St Margaret of Cortona is in Wikipedia, so we can use her Wikidata URL: www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q254632.

Papers connected with Croatia in the IANLS 2015 Vienna conference

Source:

From the rich programme of the IANLS 2015 conference we have culled abstracts of twelve papers connected with Croatia, or neighbouring regions. Members of the Croatica et Tyrolensia project are strongly represented.

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 croala.ffzg.unizg.hr. Now the URL croala.ffzg.unizg.hr/basex/persona/jamometicd1e720 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.
