e-spiritualia. Digital Resource and Database for the Study of Spiritual Literature in Iberia
Under SIBA auspices, and in collaboration with other world-leading scholars from universities in Europe, the US, and Latin America, Prof. Enric Mallorquí-Ruscalleda (California State University-Fullerton), in close collaboration with Prof. Antonio Cortijo (University of California, Santa Barbara) and Prof. Vicent Martines Peres (University of Alicante) is developing a new digital humanities project titled e-spiritualia. Digital Resource and Database for the Study of Spiritual Literature in Iberia. The site is now under construction, but this project will encompass and progressively incorporate both the extensive bibliography about this literature and the literary spiritual texts from the Iberian world with a set of tools that will allow many different searches, visualizations, etc. Once this first project is completed, a second project will include the spiritual literature produced in the Hispanophone and the Lusophone worlds of Latin America, along with the Caribbean. These are long-term and ambitious projects that will deal with the hundreds of spiritual texts still extant. The idea of developing this project stems from the necessity of having a fully comprehensive catalogue of this type of literature, something already pointed out but never fully accomplished by renowned philologist Pedro Sáinz Rodríguez and which can now be attempted with the help of technology. Finally, considering that this is a collaborative and interdisciplinary project, if you are a scholar or graduate student interested in participating in this exciting project, please feel free to contact Dr. Mallorquí-Ruscalleda at:
When contacting, please submit your CV, along with a small paragraph explaining why and in which capacity you would like to contribute. Many thanks in advance.
