ANR Religious Dissidence and Reception of the Reformation in the Renaissance in Spain (16th century)

The project Religious Dissidence and Reception of the Reformation in the Renaissance in Spain (16th century) (henceforth D4R) has a double objective in Digital Humanities: on the one hand, the processing of a corpus of 16th century documents on the Reformation in Spain and, on the other, the development of a tool to interrogate large masses of documents from a historical perspective. This new tool is intended to provide assistance to researchers in exploiting heterogeneous textual corpora in history by providing tools for both annotating and interrogating masses of documents. The D4R project, which brings together French and Spanish historians, linguists and computer scientists, aims to make possible the dynamic exploration of a documentary corpus (inquisitorial sources, on the one hand, and treatises on spirituality, on the other) by means of a digital platform which, by providing an algorithm and an evolving ontology, offers a semi-automatic aid to the processing of fragmentary data and heterogeneous documentary sources.
