Epidat deployed

We have integrated the Epidat dataset from the Steinheim-Institute into the JudaicaLink project.

Epidat is a research platform for jewish tombstone epigraphy in Germany. The database for jewish tombstone epigraphy serves as inventory, for documentation, edition and for presentation of epigraphical data. There are 249 digital editions with 46,257 tombstones (83,126 image files) online accessible as digital edition. Not accessible are 1479 datasets for tombstones which have been erected after the year 1952.

Since March 2019 epidat is being developed continuously as scientific research cooperation between the Salomon-Ludwig-Steinheim-Institute, Essen and the Academy of Science and Literature, Mainz.
