The Portal

In 2003 the papyrus collections Halle, Jena and Leipzig applied for a DFG-project aiming at the digitization, cataloguing and presentation of the results of indexing of the papyri which are stored in those collections. The results are available through an internet database. On the basis of the IT solution for Halle, Jena and Leipzig analogue applications were developed for Giessen and the Göttingen Academy of Sciences (not public). The present application is a synopsis of the formerly individually existing instances for Erlangen, Cologne, Marburg and Würzburg. Besides those collections it should include other minor collections as for example Basel and Bremen, and offer them a presentation platform. The results of this work are published on this website, including pictures and short descriptions. They are accessible by specialists as well as the public.

The website is implemented using the open source project MyCoRe that was and is still developed by a number of German universities.
