Johannes Dantiscus (1485–1548), a distinguished diplomat at the court of the Jagiellonian Dynasty, bishop of Culm and, subsequently, of Warmia, and an acclaimed author of Neo-Latin poetic compositions, maintained contact with numerous prominent personalities of his times. He corresponded, among many others, with the ‘Prince of the Humanists’, Desiderius Erasmus, the Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés, the praeceptor Germaniae Philip Melanchthon, and Nicolaus Copernicus, who formulated the heliocentric model of the Solar System. Dantiscus’s correspondence, of which more than 6100 letters are extant, alongside his other texts, has been researched and systematically published online as part of the project titled Corpus of Ioannes Dantiscus’ Texts and Correspondence and carried out at the University of Warsaw over the past thirty years. The purpose of the lecture will be to present the structure of this digital edition, current possibilities of employing it for academic research, and the perspectives of its development as well as continuance.
