Currently, there is no definitive catalogue of artistic depictions from Vergil’s epic Latin poem, the Aeneid. Mirabile Visu is a digital collection featuring 300 images of artistic depictions from Vergil's opus. The collection was compiled of metadata systematically gathered using cultural heritage APIs from galleries, libraries, archives and museums. Mirabile Visu showcases 300 images of 1,000+ records gathered using these methods so far. Using the web platform, Omeka Classic and the data visualization software Tableau, this project explores the classical reception of a distinguished opus through digital curation and data analysis of its iconography in western art. Read more about the data collection process, research methods as well as preliminary data analysis in the Data section.
