“Genre”

This field is intended to help researchers who are searching for types of texts and manuscripts that are rarely attributed to specific authors but that are useful as a body of material. The Pinakes database handles this by indexing such material under collective headings which are searchable in the “Author” field. To assist researchers, please note the following in the optional field “Genre.” [we will add options to this field as seems appropriate]

institutional documents

civic law

canon law

liturgical

musical

calender

canon tables

letter collection

florilegia

magical

scientific

medical
