Röhricht’s Regesta Revised: This database is a breakthrough revision in a digitized format of Reinhold Röhricht’s original Regesta regni Hierosolymitani (1893-1904). The 2016 Revised Regesta offers an expanded and corrected calendar of all the charters, other legal or formal documents and letters and inscriptions originating in the Latin East between 1098 and 1291. All charters are rendered in English.
A Database of Crusaders to the Holy Land: This database of participants and family relationships relating to the expeditions that took place between 1095 - 1149 was compiled by colleagues at the University of Leeds. The University of Leeds has also funded HRI Digital to make the database publicly available as an online research resource.
