Prosopography is a subject well suited to digital scholarship, and over
the last few decades it has undergone profound changes in how we
collate, present and locate information. New style ‘factoid’
prosopographies like the Prosopography of the Byzantine World offer the
potential for new analyses and access to data. This paper examines that
evolution drawing on my own digital prosopography of Socrates
Scholasticus' Ecclesiastical History. It explores decisions taken in
modern prosopographies and their alternatives. In particular it looks at
options around implication and aggregation, for deeper analysis of
relationship information, and specific issues in Socrates’ text itself.
