Welcome to the collaborative archive of monasterium.net!

In our virtual archive, you can access a content of more than 500,000 primary sources from more than 100 European archives.
The documents are organized in archival fonds and research collections. The content of the virtual archive depends on the decisions of the participants. It can vary from archive to archive, from collection to collection. Browse through the fonds to discover what can be found and add in anything you miss. Registered users have the possibility to take a greater part in our collaborative effort by working with the sources themselves. More information can be found on the menu under "Help".
