From the MDZ
The Munich DigitiZation Center (MDZ) has been providing the rich holdings of the Bavarian State Library (BSB) on the Internet since 1997.
It is the central innovation and also production unit of the BSB for developing, testing and implementing new products and processes related to the multifaceted, far-ranging subject of the 'digital library'.
Wittelsbach-Palatinate family tree digitized
In July 2023 the work 'Tabula Palatinorum. Wittelsbach-Pfälzischer Stammbaum von Chlodwig bis zu Kurfürst Friedrich II. von der Pfalz' by Johannes Basilius Herold from 1556 has been digitized by the Munich DigitiZation Center (MDZ) with the support of the Institute for Conservation and Restoration. Due to format and size of the original (rolled hanging plate; 415x126 cm), several large partial images had to be made. To ensure that the entire family tree, which is rich in detail, is visible in a single image, the partial images were combined into a complete image by means of image montage.
