Chapter Summary

The two Benedictine scholars Bernhard and Hieronymus Pez are two of the most important historians and editors in the eighteenth century. To obtain the materials for their various editorial projects they established a wide network of correspondents across central Europe, and also travelled to monasteries in Austria and Southern Germany to search the libraries for interesting manuscripts. The output of their work fills about 15 archive boxes containing drafts, catalogues or general working papers and several manuscripts containing over 1000 letters. Since 2008 the correspondence of the Brothers Pez is edited by the project “Monastic Enlightenment and the Benedictine Republic of Letters” directed by Thomas Wallnig and hosted by the Department of History at the University of Vienna. While the letters are edited for publication in printed form, the extant working papers of the Brothers Pez are digitized and made accessible through a database.
