Repertorium Columbianum

The Repertorium Columbianum collects contemporary sources relating to Columbus’ four voyages and documents the interpenetration of the hitherto separate worlds. This multi-volume series provides easy access to the basic documents which are indispensable tools for all scholarly inquiry into this world-historical moment. The series provides accurate editions of the essential texts in their original languages while also providing parallel translations into modern English. Each text is preceded by an historical and philological introduction and appears with textual variants at the foot of the page, supplemented by a detailed commentary and a glossary of problematic terms. The scope of the Repertorium Columbianum is limited to sources from the period between Columbus’ first voyage and the Spanish conquest of Mexico in 1519–1521, although certain volumes, by their nature, extend the chronological range of the series beyond these dates.

The original Columbian ventures were international in conception and execution, and in this same spirit the Repertorium Columbianum is an international undertaking. The contributing scholars were drawn from both sides of the Atlantic, and the costs were borne with the help of generous funding from the Ahmanson Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Italian Comitato Nazionale per le Celebrazioni del V Centenario della Scoperta dell’America, and the Spanish Sociedad Estatal para la Ejecución de Programas del Quinto Centenario. The administrative and editorial work was performed by the UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Volumes 1-3 of the series were originally published by the University of California Press. Volumes 4-13 were published by Brepols Publishers.
