TO BRASILHIS DATABASE, THE WORLD'S LARGEST REPOSITORY OF INFORMATION ABOUT BRAZIL IN THE HISPANIC MONARCHY (1580-1640).
BRASILHIS Database arises as a different way to answer the question:
What was the impact of the Spanish Habsburg government on the territory of Portuguese America?
In order to get to the deeper aspects of this broad question, the Database has been organized, in a first phase, around three main sections: characters with their networks of personal relationships and displacements, documental references and bibliographic references, connected to each other.
In the second phase, another serie of categories has been added, such as Properties, Legislation, Iconography, Means of Transport, Identities, etc., to complete the complex information that the sources offer us about this territory and this "crucial" period.More
