Data Base “Hagiography of the Late Byzantine Period (1204-1453)”
The Data Base “Hagiography of the Late Byzantine Period (1204-1453)” that runs at the Institute of Historical Research/Section of Byzantine Research aims at collecting, elaborating/reworking and digitising the hagiographic material of the time, including additional elucidative data for each text (e.g. author, date, edition, manuscripts).

It contains prose texts which are classified into the following categories: Unclassified texts, Saints’ Lives, Encomia, Miracles, and Orations, according to the Bibliotheca Hagiographica Graeca (= BHG).

The texts are inputted per page exactly according to their edition.
The user by entering a password has the possibility to perform a search in the texts and in the “Metadata”, i.e. in the information that has been recorded for each text included in the Database (e.g. author, text dating, edition, manuscripts, etc.). Τhe Data Base constitutes a useful tool for those who study Byzantine History.
