Repertorium academicum germanicum (RAG) - The Graduated Scholars of the Holy Roman Empire between 1250 and 1550

The website of the research project Repertorium academicum germanicum (RAG) - The Graduated Scholars of the Holy Roman Empire between 1250 and 1550 offers information about the projects and the publications as well as a database with biographic information on the scholars of the Empire between 1250 and 1550 an the Atlas of Scholars.

The RAG’s task is to collect biographical and social data on those Theologians, Jurists, Physicians, and Masters of Arts, who studied at a university between 1250 and 1550. The information is entered into a prosopographic database that will eventually cover the whole of the Holy Roman Empire. Non-graduated noble visitors of universities are also being taken into account. The RAG, which in the end will be a “who is who” of the scholars of the Old Empire, offers divers new, even interdisciplinary, perspectives due to its vast collection of data. Qualitative and quantitative statements on the intellectual elite of the Empire, their European networks, as well as institutional and territorial comparisons will be possible. Thus the scholars' role in pre-modern society can be described on a firm empirical basis and explained within the framework of modern educational research, with special reference to social, cultural, and scientific history. 45.000 to 50.000 scholars are to be expected.
