e-DITTIP is the acronym for e-Dicionário da Terra e do Território no Império Português (e-Dictionary of Land and Territory in the Portuguese Empire), an open-access online dictionary of history, published in Portuguese language.
Featuring more than 350 concise entries (see plan), e-DITTIP intends to cover all aspects related to land, agriculture, property rights, occupation and organization of the territory in every region that once incorporated the former Portuguese empire. Concepts, individuals, plants and crops, legal terms, institutions, social and ethnic groups, types of properties, taxes, landholding titles, territories and places – these are some of the categories covered by this Dictionary. Its chronology extends from the 15th to the 20th century.
Started in 2013, e-DITTIP is an ongoing project, working like a serial publication. New articles are regularly added to the Dictionary, following the appropriate peer-review process. Entries can also be revised and updated after their first publication. Each entry incorporates references for further reading.
In the main page, you can find all entries, posted by chronological order of publication. In the right sidebar, they are listed alphabetically. You can also print, email, share and rate each one of them. Citation format can be seen here.
Edited and coordinated by José Vicente Serrão, Márcia Motta and Susana Munch Miranda, e-DITTIP counts on the contribution of multiple authors, mostly from Portuguese and Brazilian universities (see current list).
e-DITTIP is a product created within the framework of the FCT research project “Lands Over Seas: property rights in the early modern Portuguese Empire” ( PTDC/HIS-HIS/113654/2009).
