The project will address the study of the humanistic inscriptions on the Iberian peninsula and their evolution through the main epigraphic programs developed in Spain and Portugal during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, in the context of the different political uses of apparatus scripts made by the monarchies that ruled in both countries and the nobility and clergy as well. The study of inscriptions of this period has been, to date, very limited, and has been usually embedded in studies of architecture or sculpture of these centuries. There is no detailed study of the inscriptions of this period both in Spain or Portugal, although both countries have a long tradition in the study of epigraphy of ancient and medieval times. The introduction of humanistic script on the Iberian Peninsula takes place in the late fifteenth century and the first epigraphic programs which follow the models of the Italian Renaissance will be developed especially in the first half of the sixteenth century. Most of these inscriptions have been insufficiently studied and several of them, quoted in various works of the eighteenth and nineteenth century, have been cited by modern historiography with errors and gaps, without having undergone a detailed epigraphic study.

Epigraphia 3D is a project funded by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Innovation (FECYT) focused in 3D modeling of roman inscriptions. The project has been developed in two years (2013-20154), coordinated by ULPGC-IATEXT, and you can access at a selection of 96 roman inscriptions in 3D from the National Museum of Archaeology (Madrid) and the National Museum of Roman Art (mérida) in the site www.epigraphia3d.es
