Johannes Turmair (1477-1534), called Aventinus, is still regarded as the "founder of Bavarian historiography" today. His work has left its indelible mark on the image of Bavarian history. Aventinus left a voluminous collection of personal papers which has so far not been evaluated comprehensively. The edition published between 1881 and 1908 took account of only a part of the documents and is furthermore academically debatable.
The project presents both the edition and the manuscripts which are essential for scholarly work.
