In the course of duerer.online, first and foremost artworks mentioned in the artist's extensive written legacy will be made accessible in order to closely interlink image and text data records. The sources by and about Dürer, many of which are already available in digital form but are now scattered internationally, will be brought together virtually.
In addition to a digital facsimile of the respective manuscript, there is a text transcribed in XML format according to the guidelines of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI), which identifies the named places, works of art and persons, references the Integrated Authority File (GND), provides access via full text search and, in perspective, an index. If there are several copies of a textual source, these should be presented as a synopsis.
Since the 18th century, researchers have been transcribing the surviving autographs and editing the copies produced in the course of early modern Dürer enthusiasm for printing. As children of their time, these publications do not comply with the current edition guidelines, but they are of considerable interest to researchers as testimonies to Dürer's life and works as well as from the perspective of reception history. In the following list, the corresponding publications are listed (and successively expanded), provided they are available digitally.
The following sources will be edited in the first project phase (2020-2023) on the basis of the editing principles for duerer.online.
