To allow easy access to the many riches
contained in this digital version of the Nuremberg Chronicle,
Book Contents has been organized in four different ways.
- Index provides an
A to Z listing of the many people, places, and ideas
that inhabit the Chronicle. Our index
is a slightly corrected version based on the one found
at the beginning of the Chronicle (Beloit’s
copy, unfortunately, is missing its index).
- Folios provides a complete
listing of all the pages of the Latin version of the
Chronicle (the few folios missing from Beloit’s
copy are noted in parentheses).
- Ages corresponds to seven
significant biblical periods of time (followed by
a collection of geographical information labeled ‘Addenda’)
around which the author of the Chronicle, Hartmann
Schedel, organized his world history.
- Finally, Images provides
a large selection of the Chronicle’s more interesting,
unusual, and beautiful illustrations, arranged thematically.
