Census of Antique Works of Art and Architecture Known in the Renaissance

"The database of the Census documents antique art and architecture known in the Renaissance. The project focuses on recording which antique monuments were proved to be known where, when and in what state of preservation. The database is not intended to be an encyclopaedic compilation of the reception of antique art. The main data consist of source materials of diverse quality regarding scientific examination and are available for further research. The database as a whole is wide-ranging and complex. More than 200.000 entries contain pictorial and written documents, locations, persons, concepts of times and styles, events, research literature and illustrations. The monuments registered amount to about 6.500, the entries of monuments to about 12.000 and the entries of documents to 28.000."
