An updated version of the PilgerZeichenDatenbank (www.pilgerzeichen.de) is now available online via the server of the National Museums in Berlin. The database of pilgrim badges, developed in 2001 by the then chair for Christian archaeology, monument studies and cultural history at the Theology Department of Berlin's Humboldt University, has been in great demand ever since, both by scholars and interested members of the public alike. By consciously focussing the Berlin-based PilgerZeichenDatenbank on collections and finds of pilgrim badges in Central and Eastern Europe, the project aims, for the foreseeable future at least, to align itself with the established research centre for medieval pilgrim badges at Radboud University Nijmegen. Its database is available at www.kunera.nl
