Epigraphic Database Heidelberg

With the desire to stimulate cooperation between the Epigraphic Database Heidelberg (EDH) and other international epigraphic research institutions in mind, it has been possible since September 2003 to enter data concerning inscriptions into EDH online from anywhere in the world, i.e. in places other than the Heidelberg Research Institute.

So far cooperation has been and is being carried out by research team members
- of the Institut für Altertumskunde, Alte Geschichte und Epigraphik - University of Vienna (since 2003; Prof. Dr. Ekkehard Weber; Ass. Mag. Dr. Franziska Beutler [2003-2005], Kerstin Birgit Böhm [2005/2006], Katharina Krenn [2009-2010], Kathrin Siegl [2009-2010]),
- of the Institut für Alte Geschichte und Altertumskunde - University of Graz (2004-2006; Ass. Prof. Dr. Manfred Hainzmann),
- of Lehrstuhls für Alte Geschichte of the Catholic University Eichstätt-Ingolstadt (2004-2009; Prof. Dr. Jürgen Malitz, Andreas Hartmann M.A.),
- of the Institut für Archäologie of the University of Ljubljana (2005; Dr. Milan Lovenjak),
- of the research group of the Departament de Filologia Llatina of the University of Barcelona (2006/2007; Prof. Dr. Marc Mayer i Olivé, Dott.ssa Daniela Paci),
- of the research project Supplementum zu CIL XIII of the Historische Seminar of the University of Osnabrück (2007-2009; Prof. Dr. Rainer Wiegels, Jan Kaufhold [2007/2008], Bernadette Esch [2008-2010]),
- of the research project "Die lateinischen Inschriften von Albanien/Epirus" of the Kommission für Alte Geschichte und Epigraphik des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts München (2011; Prof. Dr. Rudolf Haensch, PD Dr. Ulrike Ehmig),
- of the project "Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania" at King's College London (2011; Dr. Gabriel Bodard),
- of the  Dipartimento di Scienze dell’Antichità, del Medioevo e Geografico-ambientali (DISAM) of the Università di Genova (2012; Dr. Elena Cimarosti, Dott. Viviana Pettirossi) as well as the Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia of the Università degli Studi di Torino (2012; Dr. Giulia Masci) and
- of the British School at Rome (2014; Dr. Francesca Bigi).

In accordance with this division of labour the processing of these inscription by external contributors based to a large extent on the locality:

Barcelona: Latin Inscriptions of Catalonia
Eichstätt: Greek Inscriptions from the Imperial Period
Genua / Turin: Latin Inscriptions from Alpes Cottiae, Graiae, Poeninae and Marittimae
Graz: Latin Inscriptions from Carinthia
Ljubljana: Latin Inscriptions from Slovenia
London: Latin Inscriptions from Tripolitania
Osnabrück: Latin Inscriptions from Germany
Rome: Latin Inscriptions from Lepcis Magna and Sabratha
Munich: Latin Inscriptions from Epirus
Vienna: Latin Inscriptions from Noricum (except for Carinthia) and the Austrian part of Pannonia Superior

In this way inscriptions of these areas, which had not been accessible in EDH, have been made available for the user. Furthermore such inscriptions, which had already been part of EDH and were accessible in a provisional form, were able to be improved in the best possible way by making use of knowledge that is easiest and best to gather locally.
