Institute for the european intellectual lexicon and history of ideas (ILIESI)


As a digital humanities research infrastructure, the institute serves the community of investigators and the country at large.
The institute's own research library is open to users. It embraces a number of tools for everyday use such as philosophical and scientific opera omnia, lexica, dictionaries, special repertories, and lexicographic and philological handbooks.
Also open to users are the institute's digital archives, whose number and size are growing, starting with the almost fifty-years old "Lessico Intellettuale Europeo" endeavor, which was first focused on 200 works from 1600 to 1800 in six different languages.
Beginning with 2011, finally, the institute provides texts, lemmatized indices, and translations for the "World Digital Library" project, which is maintained by the Library of Congress in cooperayoj with Unesco.
