BoschDoc - online database with source material on Hieronymus Bosch

Anyone who wants to know more about the life and work of Hieronymus Bosch, and who wants to do their own research, can now use BoschDoc an online database with nearly 1,000 documents on the late medieval painter. BoschDoc is part of the Bosch Research and Conservation Project.

The documents in BoschDoc date from before 1800, since texts become increasingly interpretative rather than factual following this date.
Not only documents in which he himself is mentioned are catalogued, but also documents giving information about his immediate surroundings, members of his family, patrons and works.
These are chiefly handwritten, but a number of extracts from early printed works were also added. BoschDoc provides facsimile’s, transcriptions and translations of all documents as well as elaborations on their content. The content of the database can be searched and browsed in many ways, making it an unavoidable starting point for research on Bosch. The database is available in Dutch and English. A Spanish version will be added around the middle of 2016.

BoschDoc is part of the Bosch Research and Conservation Project and has been carried out in the framework of the 500th anniversary of the death of Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450 – 1516). The project has been made possible by the Radboud University, the City Archives of ’s-Hertogenbosch and the Huygens ING. Following the example of RemDoc (a database developed by Radboud University with source material on the painter Rembrandt), BoschDoc was created using eLaborate, software of Huygen ING.
