Società Internazionale per lo Studio del Medioevo Latino: Florenz, IT
MIRABILE is the portal providing access to the extensive databases and the journals produced by the Società Internazionale per lo Studio del Medioevo Latino (www.sismelfirenze.it), the Fondazione Ezio Franceschini (www.fefonlus.it) and, since the beginning of 2012, significant databases from other organizations and research institutes. In addition to Medieval Latin culture (Medieval Latin database), MIRABILE has now expanded to include medieval vernacular culture (Italian database, French database) and a specific section devoted to hagiographic texts and manuscripts (hagiographic database). This new content, coupled with the reorganization and implementation of various search filters, has increased research possibilities and accessibility of results. The high cross-referencing between databases increases considerably the possibility of accessing relevant information on authors, manuscripts, and texts. All the contents are available in an integrated format such that online access is even more profitable, opening possibilities for multidisciplinary research. At the moment, MIRABILE contains information on approximately 95,000 manuscripts, 17,200 authors, and 300,000 bibliographic records; in addition, 1,400 journal articles in PDF format are available.
