Iter: Gateway to the Renaissance is a non-profit research project to increase access to all published materials pertaining to the Middle Ages and Renaissance (400-1700), through the creation of online bibliographic databases. There are 8 databases/resources currently available to Rutgers:
Citations for books, journal material (articles, reviews, review articles, bibliographies, catalogues, abstracts and discographies) are included, as are citations for essays in books (including entries in conference proceedings, festschriften, encyclopedias and exhibition catalogues) pertaining to the Middle Ages and Renaissance (400-1700).
International Directory of Scholars
Combines the information in the directories of the Renaissance Society of America (RSA) and the Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC). Members of these societies provide affiliation and addresses as well as detailed information on their research and teaching careers.
Updated: Regularly, as supplied by the RSA and SCSC.
Online version of Paul Oskar Kristeller's Iter Italicum, the most comprehensive finding list available of previously uncataloged or incompletely cataloged Renaissance humanistic manuscripts found in libraries and collections all over the world. Originally published in six volumes between 1963 and 1992, it is an essential tool for any scholar working in the fields of classical, medieval and Renaissance studies. See print: Iter Italicum: a Finding List of Uncatalogued or Incompletely Catalogued Humanistic Manuscripts of the Renaissance in Italian and other Libraries. (Alexander Library)
The Medici Archive Project
This evaluation version of MAP's Documentary Sources database currently describes 200 volumes of documents in the Medici Granducal Archive (Archivio Mediceo del Principato, 1537-1743), with document records for approximately 10,000 letters and biographical records for approximately 11,000 people.
Offers descriptions of baptismal fonts from the early Christian period to the 17th century. The link currently leads to the project web site, where you can learn more about the project and search sample records. Eventually access to the full index will be available through a subscription to Iter.
The Electronic Capito Project
Provides the text of letters from and to Wolfgang Capito (1478-1523), either unpublished or published before 1850 and therefore difficult to access. The link currently leads to the project web site, where you can learn more about the project and search sample records.
Iter also provides online access to selected issues of two journals that are cataloged and linked in the : Aestimatio: Critical Reviews in the History of Science and Renaissance Quarterly.
