The Thesaurus der Heiligen is part of the “Geschichtsquellen des deutschen Mittelalters“, which provides central information on medieval sources from the German territory. Thus, its focus lies on German saints and lists 296 entries. The entries include information on the opus in which the respective saint is mentioned and – if the author is known – on the author of these opuses. The site provides a useful overview of the handwritten tradition of the works and does also provide links to digitised manuscripts (if available), information on editions, translations and studies of author and/or opus.
