Berkeley Prosopography Services Wiki

Berkeley Prosopography Services Wiki Home
Berkeley Prosopography Services (BPS) is an open-source prosopographical toolkit that generates interactive visualizations of the biological and social connections that link documented individuals, providing a dynamic and heuristic tool for researching historical communities documented in legal and administrative archives.

We are currently exploring and developing a prototype application with a single target corpus, but will soon expand to support multiple corpora. The initial corpus is a set of Hellenistic Babylonian legal texts (cuneiform tablets).
