Christian baptisteries, 3rd–12th centuries
This interactive map visualizes a dataset of Christian baptisteries built between the 3rd and 12th centuries. The dataset represents a digital adaptation and formalization of the most complete catalogue of baptisteries by Sebastian Ristow. Of all 1067 buildings in Ristow’s catalogue, this map takes into account only those whose existence and function as baptisteries is considered certain or very probable by Ristow and which, at the same time, could be localised.
Premonstratensian monasteries in France
This interactive map visualizes a dataset of Premonstratensian houses in France from the foundation of the order up to the present. The dataset is a digital adaptation and formalization of the most complete catalogue available, edited by Bernard Ardura (Abbayes, prieurés et monastères de l’ordre de Prémontré en France des origines à nos jours: Dictionnaire historique et bibliographique, 1993).
- 181 records (localised either to the precise site or, approximately, to the level of the commune);
- filtering by time, gender of the community (male, female, double monastery), and status (abbey or priory);
- a choice of base maps, including the Cassini map;
- an infobox under each object showing the ID number of the record, place name, the earliest and latest possible dates for both foundation and dissolution, certainty of localisation, dedication, and a link to a Wikipedia entry (if available).
