Current Projects


From bookcase to screen – Digitalisation of funeral sermons in Skokloster Castle library

Printed funeral sermons in Skokloster Castle library provide important information about life in Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries. National Historical Museums is therefore participating in a project that Stockholm University leads to digitalise the approximately one thousand funeral sermons in the castle’s book collection and make them available for research. The project is funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and runs from 2023 to 2026.
