A Short Manual to the Art of Prosopography
Koenraad Verboven; Myriam Carlier and Jan Dumolyn

In this guide, the following questions will be thoroughly discussed: 1) What is the prosopographical method? (definitions, history and practice); 2) What problems can a prosopographer expect to encounter? (in defining the target population, making a questionnaire, elaborating the selection criteria applied to the source material, dealing with missing data and its repercussions for the method used, etc.); and 3) How useful is prosopography as a method for additional research in a larger research project?
