The virtual reunion of the Teutonic Order – Finally!

A great example on how our work and technical knowledge about document digitization helps to reverse the fragmentation of archives that has been result of historic events:

The State Archive Ludwigsburg (DE) has, in cooperation with ICARUS and within the project “Virtuelles deutsches Urkundennetzwerk” (Virtual German Charters Network), started to digitize the charters of the Teutonic Order.

Good to know: Corresponding documents stored in the Central Archive of the Teutonic Order in Vienna (AT) as well as in the State Archive Marburg (DE) have also already been digitized by ICARUS — The documents will be online on in the course of this year!

Have a look at these great articles (in German) about the project:
