BoschDoc is an online database containing source material on the ’s-Hertogenbosch painter Hieronymus Bosch. Not only the sources in which he himself is mentioned are included, but also sources giving information about his immediate surroundings, members of his family, patrons and works. These are chiefly handwritten documents, but also a number of early printed works, dating from before 1800 are included in BoschDoc.

BoschDoc is part of the Bosch Research and Conservation Project and has been carried out in the framework of the 500th anniversary of the death of Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450 – 1516). The project has been made possible by the Radboud University Nijmegen, the City Archives of ’s-Hertogenbosch and the Huygens ING.  

The content of BoschDoc is largely based on references in other publications. These references have been traced, expanded and if necessary updated and/or corrected. The publications containing the references are credited under the tab “Comments & References”.
