The exceptional database contains the results of more than 50 years of research on antique artefacts of the renaissance period.
More than 20,000 Renaissance Documents related to more than 10,000 Antique Monuments are illustrated by ca. 30,000 photographs.
The CENSUS is published on CD-ROM and is available since end of 1997.
The CENSUS database had been transformed into an adapted DYABOLA system, which allows fast and intuitive access to the enormous variety of aspects.
The CENSUS is based on a broad range of criteria classifying both monuments and documents. Multiple links to authorities of persons, locations and dates, allowing a broader context, are directly accessible.
Besides online access an introducing manual and the periodical PEGASUS exist.
