Robert Leiber Collection

This is the home page of the Robert Leiber correspondence project. The about 3,000 letters of these correspondence are preserved by the Historical Archives of the Pontifical Gregorian University. Each letter will be transcribed, commented and annotated with the help of GATE contributors. Annotation allows to univocally identify entities cited within the texts, such as names, places, works and so on; entities will have a dedicated page where users can acquire information about them.

In this page you can search the full-text of the letters and the correspondence metadata.

If you want to collaborate to the Robert Leiber Correspondence transcription project, you should ask for an account by using this form. We will create a username associated to your email address; then you will receive an email with a temporary random password that will allow you to log in GATE.
