Recopilación

Digital edition of the Recopilación de leyes de los reinos de las Indias

This project is a collaborative effort by scholars of the political and legal history of the Spanish monarch across several universities to transcribe and publish online the first edition of the Recopilación de leyes de los reinos de las indias (1680), based on the copy held by the Biblioteca del Colegio de Misiones de Popayán and digitized by Neogranadina.

The digital edition will include indices to connect related topics and a forum for researchers to discuss the material, as well as other tools to allow users to interact with the text in new and different ways.
