eMail-List about:
Internet Ressources concerning Renaissance Topics


Web4Ren is an eMail-list dedicated to the exchange of information about electronic resources, provided that these resources are:

  1. available free of charge via the internet
  2. of some relevance concerning Renaissance persons, phenomena, texts, artefacts, topics, subjects, theories, &c. &c. pp.

Any information and/or discussion that is (even loosely) pertaining to free internet resources of potential relevance to renaissance studies of whatever kind is welcome on the list. Advertisements and other commercial information not related to free internet resources of potential relevance to renaissance studies of whatever kind is not welcome on the list. Infringements on the latter rule may result in the permanent exclusion of the perpetrator from the list.

If you should be in doubt whether something you'd like to post on the list will be considered "on topic" or "off topic" for this list: please consult with the list moderator prior to sending that posting to the list. Thanks in advance!

The Web4Ren Forum (W4RF) is not identical to this email distribution list. The Web4Ren Forum (W4RF) is also about "many sorts of information of potential relevance to those interested in Renaissance Intellectual History", it gets more entries than the email distribution list, it permits postings concerning items of a commercial nature, and it lists a wider range of items. On the other hand: Most Discussions on the forum are for anybody to see, whereas mails on the email distribution list are visible only for members of the email distribution list (since May 2005). It's up to you whether you want to use the email distribution list, or the forum, or both.

Web4Ren is administrated by Seminar für Geistesgeschichte und Philosophie der Renaissance and hosted by Leibniz Rechenzentrum (both at Munich). The "owner" of the list is Heinrich C. Kuhn. Web4Ren was founded 1999-09-29.

As you are somehow interested in internet ressources concerning renaissance topics: Our database GGRENir (internetography on renaissance intellectual history) might perhaps also be of interest to you.
