The Census of Antique Works of Art and Architecture Known in the Renaissance is an interdisciplinary research database containing documentation centering on the reception of antiquity, a focus of Renaissance studies.
Registered are the antique monuments known in the Renaissance together with the related Renaissance documents in the form of texts and images, and related information about locations, persons and periods as well as bibliographic data.
The Census is a useful tool of research, not only in the field of art history and archaeology, but also for any discipline focussing on the afterlife of the antiquity.
Scholarly advice for the project lies with a committee representing the following institutions:
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin – Warburg Institute London – Bibliotheca Hertziana (Max-Planck-Institute for Art History) Rom – Warburg Haus Hamburg – Getty Research Institute Los Angeles – Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
