Clavis canonum: Handbook and Database

The Clavis canonum Wiki essentially contains the content of Fowler-Magerl's 2005 Clavis canonum handbook, with some entries being already updated by users of this Wiki, and a few pages added (see here for a digital version of the 2005 book). The Bibliography has been revised more fully; it also contains the short titles for books and articles frequently quoted in the handbook. The database, like the handbook, is in the course of beeing updated; compared to the 2005 version, there are more collections and new search functions.
