Focusing on the highly influential writing "Dei delitti e delle pene" by Cesare Beccaria, first published in 1764 and immediately translated into several European languages (German, French, English ...), the project is interested in the concepts of legal and philosophical thought and language use as well as their translation in Europe around 1800 using the methods of Digital Humanities. The third workshop will focus in particular on the sources and methods of digital lexicography. The project thus participates in the more general development of a metalexicographic information system that aims to capture the spatial and temporal development of the historical languages of law in Europe.
