Collections of hymns and prayers in the Moravian Land Museum

In 2016, six partly notated manuscripts from the collections of the Ethnographic Institute of the Moravian Museum have been digitised. The oldest of them is the Hymnal of Martin Bursík from 1736–1737 written in Kuželov (the Hodonín district); the others are of Czech and Moravian origin and come from the 19th century. In terms of content, these are collections of hymns and prayers for various occasions.


Digitised Documents of the North Bohemian Museum in Liberec

In 2016, the North Bohemian Museum in Liberec has digitised five shelf marks. Besides a collection of engravings, these comprise the history of the town of Liberec written by Karl Felgenhauer, a parish priest in Křižany, at the beginning of the 19th century, and an inventory of the church of St Lawrence in Chrastava from 1729 and 1737. The last two sets of loose sheets contain the tracing of the decorated parts of blind-stamped bindings, a result of the collecting activities of a significant scholar, Bohumil Nuska.



Historiographical Sources from the Strahov Library

In 2016, the Library of the Royal Canonry of Premonstratensians at Strahov has digitised a large collection of modern historiographical sources. These include extensive works (the German version of a part of the Memoirs of Count Vilém Slavata and the volumes of Annales Ferdinandei by Franz Christoph Khevenhüller, important for the study of the development of their final version) as well as sources on individual monasteries (Strahov, Doksany, and Svatý Kopeček near Olomouc).


Maps from the National Library of the Czech Republic

The set of 109 digitised maps comes from the 18th and 19th centuries. Individual maps and plans cover various parts of Europe, especially Italy, Austria, Hungary, East-Central Europe (Galicia, Poland and Russia) and the lands of the Balkan peninsula. They include geographical as well as special (railway, postal etc.) maps.
