Edited volume - hardback
More than ten years ago, some mediaevalists of the K.U.Leuven and the University of Ghent joined together to create a repertory of medieval narrative sources focusing on the southern Low Countries. A pre-print was published in a paper version and was soon followed by the electronic database entitled "Narrative Sources" which is available through the Internet. Since 1996, "Narrative Sources" has been adapted, supplemented and rearranged every year and over the years the number of inventoried items has been increased to far more than 2150 titles. The information present thus far in "Narrative Sources" already allows and facilitates the study of the sources as such, individually or collectively, qualitatively or quantitatively.
In a next step the goal would be the exploitation of the contents, with a specific focus on monastic historiography, its social setting, and self-image. In this proceeding some of the scholars working on this project present their work, their methodology and their results to-date.
