Medieval Memoria Online


Welcome to the Medieval Memoria Online (MeMO) database. MeMO provides a database that is accessible free of charge for researchers, students and anyone with a general interest in Dutch cultural heritage. It contains inventories and descriptions of objects and texts that had a function in the commemoration of the dead in the area that is currently the Netherlands, until 1580. These are:

  • Tomb monuments and floor slabs
  • Memorial pieces (Memorialbilder)
  • Memorial registers (administrative and liturgical sources)
  • Narrative sources that fulfilled functions in the commemoration of the dead

The St Maarten’s Church (or Domkerk) in Utrecht, see MeMO institution ID 21.

The database also contains basic information on the institutions in which the sources functioned.

Note: As of February 2019, the MeMO database is no longer updated
