The list is not complete. For obvious reasons some topics of research cannot be revealed in advance.

I call attention to the fact that all digital copies of historical documents on this blog (unless otherwise indicated) are first publications. The unauthorized use of these files, whose creation is based on a great amount of personal work, represents a violation of copyright. While most archival documents are in public domain, their digital copies are not. If the threshold of originality is so low – as some freeloaders have repeatedly claimed – it is reasonable enough to have readers themselves order scans of documents directly from the archives. I also want to point out that all posts on this blog are being regularly updated.
