Introduction

Since 2014 Historical Institute started the project of digitalization ancient inscriptions of Montenegro as well as the collaboration with the EAGLE project. Our ongoing project is financed by Ministry of Culture of Montenegro and we are hoping that this website and database are just the beginning of digitally preserving cultural heritage of Montenegro. The next step in this study will be the history of epigraphic research in Montenegro from 15th century onwards. At first this project was envisioned as a digital corpus of mostly Latin inscriptions from Montenegro, but we believe, in time, it could become a digital edition of all inscriptions; Greek, Latin, Islamic, ancient, medieval, showing diversity in all ages.We are very much indebted to our predecessors for their ground work on epigraphy in Montenegro.The Institute would like to thank our colleagues from all the museums in Montenegro for all the help and contributions and we hope that this collaboration will continue.
