epidat ─ Research Platform for Jewish Epigraphy

Epidat - The Database of Jewish epigraphy - provides the inventory, documentation, editions and presentation of epigraphical collections. Currently online are available 249 digital editions with 46192 epitaphs (83126 image files).

Since March 2019 epidat is jointly developed within the framework of a scientific cooperation between the Salomon-Ludwig-Steinheim-Institute, Essen and the Academy of Sciences and Literature | Mainz.

There are currently two ways to view headstones, inscriptions, personal data and the extensive image material edited in epidat. The first is via the present access, which has not changed significantly since 2006. At the same time, a epidat BETA version is being developed, which offers new functionalities, bilingual menu texts and is optimised for mobile devices.
