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.
