Katalog der deutschsprachigen illustrierten Handschriften des Mittelalters (KdiH)



Advisory Board

Contributors to the KdiH are supported by an international advisory board, composed of experts in the field:


There is a close collaboration with libraries and archives. Of particular note is the cooperation with the Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek München (BSB) giving the manuscripts relevant to the KdiH priority within their Projekt der Wasserzeichenanalyse (WZIS). With the BSB there is an intensive collaboration with regard to the KdiH conference in September 2016 as well. There is also a scientific exchange with employees of the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin – Preußischer Kulturbesitz and the Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek Wien.


The KdiH is cooperating closely with Handschriftencensus, a database recording all medieval German manuscripts.

The project is affiliated in research and teaching with the Institut für deutsche Philologie at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich and the Lehrstuhl für Kunstgeschichte at Katholische Universität in Eichstätt.
