ArteLope: Biblioteca Digital

The ARTELOPE project, based at the Universitat de València, maintains a rich database and a digital library centring on one of the pillars of Golden Age Spanish literature: the dramatic works of Lope de Vega. ARTELOPE has contributed to this project over 250 plays written by Lope de Vega and his contemporaries, as well as substantial bibliographical information, which are available (open-access) on their digital library website and database.

The Association for Hispanic Classical Theater

The ASSOCIATION FOR HISPANIC CLASSICAL THEATER INC. (AHCT) was chartered as a non-profit organization in 1984 to promote and foster greater appreciation for Spain’s classical drama in production. An international organization, the AHCT counts among its members literary scholars, theatrical directors and producers, teachers, and other aficionados of Spain’s Golden Age of Theater. The AHCT maintains a rare collection of Spanish Renaissance and Baroque plays on film and videotape. The materials in the AHCT’s visual library are available to its members and serve as resources for scholarly investigations, an invaluable repertoire for theatrical companies, exciting tools for the classroom, and delightful entertainment for the general public.

Calderón Digital

CALDERÓN DIGITAL is an ongoing database project that seeks to document the ample corpus of secular drama written by the Spanish playwright Pedro Calderón de la Barca. Modeled after the ARTELOPE database, the objective of CALDERÓN DIGITAL is to provide scholars and students of Golden Age Theatre a user-friendly platform with which to interact with all the relevant information that conforms (and surrounds) the dramatic works of one of Spain’s most important authors of the seventeenth century. Most of the metadata of Calderón’s plays that appear in this database comes from CALDERÓN DIGITAL.


The EMOTHE research project undertakes the study, editing and dissemination of the classical early modern European theatre, its texts and stage practices, understood as part of Europe’s cultural heritage, while incorporating the new technologies of information and communication into the humanistic knowledge.


The main goal of the ETSO research project is to apply the new technologies such as Stylometry and Machine Learning to help bring some clarity to the complicated world of authorship attribution in the dramatic texts of Golden Age Spain. Through the project’s sub-portal TEXORO: TEXTOS DEL SIGLO DE ORO, they have provided digital transcriptions of several Spanish sixteenth- and seventeenth-century plays.
