Digital Corpus

The IE Digital Corpus is under development with its first iteration expected to go online in the second half of 2022. The corpus will be developed on the basis of the open source XML database eXist-db, facilitating full-text searches as well as sorting of the documents according to meta-data and keywords representing features of the texts, such as document type, year, personal or place names. The initial group of documents will most likely be around 250 expanding to eventually contain 500 to 1,000 documents from the wider Islamicate East dating to between the 8th and 13th centuries C.E. The published documents will include: meta-data, and full transcriptions and translations. The Digital Corpus will be publicly accessible in accordance with the ERC.
