CroALaBib: Croatiae auctorum Latinorum bibliographia

The Croatian neo-Latin bibliographic and prosopographic collection CroALaBib records data on 2,871 authors and 3,937 works (together with data on handwritten, printed, and digital manifestation of these works); we also have records on 584 works of secondary literature.

CroALaBib Data

CroALaBib collects data on authors and persons connected with written works (addressees, sponsors, editors). For works itself, CroALaBib distinguishes the ideal "work" (which may itself consist of several lesser works) from its various manifestations (which may comprise different editions of the same text as well as its translations).

In CroALaBib we collect data on written literary works, but also on inscriptions and plays; for plays, there are records of known performances as well.
