Databases and Notes

see page is for notes and databases that I’ve put together as part of my research that I hope might be useful to other people. I’ll keep updating this as I go through my notes, have time etc. You’re welcome to add corrections etc in the comments or via email.

1. Florentine Names in Chronicles, 1494-1512
This is an excel file I’ve taken from an old Works database. As I was reading Florentine chronicle sources, I took a note of every name I came across plus the reference, and stuck it in a file. This is it.  There’s quite a few abbreviations, so to understand the database, you’ll probably need the accompanying Word document. Obviously, you should check all these refs with the original sources, as I can’t guarantee this is mistake free.

    Where did you find the image from the anonymous Vitruvius manuscript at Ferrara? What is the date of that document? I am interested in more detailed information about this image.

    Claudio Sgarbi edited this manuscript with fantastic and very full notes on the text, including comments on the image:
    Vitruvio Ferrarese. Dal Vitruvio Ferrarese: La Restituzione Dei Templi Del De Architectura ; Tra Suggestioni Antiquarie Albertiane e Metodologia Grafica Raffaellesca. Edited by Claudio Sgarbi, 2003.

    Thanks for the info! What does the text say at the top of the image? Are there any other drawings of human proportions in this text?

      You’re welcome! Yes, there’s one other human proportion study just before this – the text is the passage from Vitruvius about the proportions of the human figure.
