Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The purpose of the project was to make accessible for historical analysis the biographical information contained in Emden's Biographical Registers of the Universities of Oxford to 1540 and Cambridge to 1500. It was not intended to eliminate the need to consult the printed volumes, but rather to facilitate access to the different categories of material contained in them. For example, one could extract the names of those meeting certain predetermined criteria such as members of Merton College between 1320 and 1339 (dates were encoded as belonging to 20 year 'generations') who were authors. For fuller details the printed volumes would have to be consulted.
Main Topics:
The datasets consist of a series of indexes to the entries in Emden's Biographical Registers of the Universities of Oxford to 1540 and Cambridge to 1500, arranged by various categories of biographical information. The categories include: membership of faculties, colleges and religious orders; place of origin; ownership, authorship and donations of books; tenure of legal and official posts; and association with royal, noble and episcopal households.
