Popis The extent of data collection in computational history is often delimited by the specifichypotheses that drive the research in question. Such a parsimonious approach is completelylogical and in many cases sufficient; moreover, there is no such thing as “total” datacollection, because the data is to a degree in the eye of the beholder. At the same time,however, historical research has a tried and tested tradition of more source-driven research,where the close reading of sources often drives the direction of study more than the testingof hypotheses. In this paper, we present our experience of developing a thorough data modeland user interface for the collection of structured data from medieval inquisitorial registers,focusing mainly on the social, spatial, and semantic relations between historical actors,groups, places, physical objects, concepts, and events. We undertook this as part of aproject that seeks to provide a networked perspective on religious dissent and its repressionin medieval Europe (Dissident Networks Project / DISSINET, In thispaper, we would like to discuss our data model and data collection practices as well as toopen the data model to suggestions on how it can be mapped upon existing standards inorder to enhance its interoperability.
