About MoEML

The Map of Early Modern London is comprised of seven distinct, interoperable projects:
  • an Encyclopedia of London people, places, topics, and terms;
  • a Library of marked-up texts rich in London toponyms;
  • an anthology of old-spelling and modern editions of all the Elizabethan, Jacobean, and Caroline mayoral shows (modern editions forthcoming);
  • a versioned edition of John Stow’s Survey of London (1598 is nearly complete; the early stages of 1633 are in draft);
  • the London Parish project (by Christopher Highley; forthcoming);
  • and Browsing the Bookstalls of St. Paul’s project (by Erica Zimmer; forthcoming).
MoEML’s six databases support all the interoperable projects:
  • a Gazetteer of locations (e.g., streets, sites, playhouses, taverns, churches, wards, and topographical features);
  • a Personography of early modern Londoners both historical and literary;
  • an Orgography of organizations (e.g., livery companies and other corporations);
  • a Bibliography of primary and secondary sources;
  • a Mapography of early modern city maps;
  • and a Glossary of terms relevant to early modern London.
All of the files in the databases use a common TEI tagset that enables users to work with primary and secondary texts simultaneously. The Map allows users to visualize, overlay, combine, and query the information in the MoEML databases.
