The core contents of the research program cover basic tasks from the "Natural and Cultural Heritage" program of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, which were taken up by the institure. These tasks are: the recording and publication of sources (documents, ledgers, notary books, town charters, correspondence of important people, etc.) for Slovene history since antiquity; historical topography of the Slovene lands in the Middle Ages, covering the collection, identification and placement of place names on the territory of Slovenia for the period (from antiquity) to 1500 AD; long-term oriented, partially interdisciplinary research into the economic, social, cultural and political history, history of everyday life of the Slovenes, with the aim of synthesizing the existing understanding of global themes, which are: measures, money, banking, traffic, crafts, trade, etc.; agrarian and non-agrarian conditions, feudal estates, castles, nobility, peasantry, towns and townspeople, the church, monasteries, the clergy, etc.; literacy, education, religion, the history of historiography, etc.; political relations and conditions, ethnic and other (self)identification; lifestyles, leisure, etc.
Significance for science
Edited PUBLICATIONS of archival material are in fact a multiplication of a unique manuscript specimen. They enable easy access and at the same time studying of written remnants of the past to a larger number of Slovene and foreign researchers and spare them time-consuming work with archival manuscripts. In historiography, the publication of source editions present a foundation for any broader conceived research. The edition of sources solves the chronology, identifies places and persons and together with accompanying indexes essentially facilitates the usage of sources. Thus it enables comparative research in the broader geographical areas or/and time periods.- With the TOPICS of the proposed programme, Slovene historiography will catch up with similar research abroad and enable comparative studies at European and broader levels. In the aspect of contents, the programme strives to make a balance between Slovene and (Western) European historiography in the field of research into economic, social and cultural history and history of everyday life.- The research programme RESULTS will introduce into traditional methods innovative aspects of the past and contribute to the integrity of knowledge on human history new findings on Slovene geographical area and national community.
Significance for the country
In the time of progressing globalisation the research of Slovene past has an exceptional SOCIAL and CULTURAL significance: it enables knowledge on who we are, why we are what we are, preserves national awareness and historical recollection, and broadens the knowledge about the world we live in and of our role in it. Such comprehension enables the citizens and the state to include equally and self-confidently into the global society and culture.The proposed programme will PROMOTE the Slovene state for its results will place Slovenia along those European countries that, with similar research, have already enriched the treasuries of their achievements. The research will again confirm, that Slovenia is Europe in miniature, as on its territory we can find all kinds of historical processes and phenomena that are characteristic of Europe.
