Historical Atlas of Bavaria

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Historical Atlas of Bavaria (HAB) is a historical-topographical description of the country made up of individual volumes that documents ownership , rule and administration of all organizational levels in today's Bavaria from early history to the present. The volumes of the HAB mainly contain text contributions , statistics and maps . Not all atlas volumes have been published yet.


The basis for the research project was laid in 1906 with the establishment of the 'Association for the Publication of the Historical Atlas of Bavaria'. The Commission for Bavarian State History (KBL) supported the association financially since 1927 and took over the publication in 1948, after the association was dissolved. In 1950 the first volumes of the HAB appeared, which were published in cooperation with the Bavarian Archives Administration and the Bavarian State Surveying Office.

The HAB contains, among other things, information on the political and ecclesiastical rulership and administrative organization (e.g. land rulership, local rule, state sovereignty), court membership and organization as well as political communities. The maps usually included (mostly on a scale of 1: 100,000) provide information about historical territories and modern municipal and administrative structures.

Structure and processing status

The HAB is divided into the four parts of Old Bavaria , Franconia , Swabia and Church Organization. The first three parts are also divided into the two series rural districts / regional courts (series I) and comprehensive investigations (series II). The atlas volumes of the part of Old Bavaria are based on the district courts that were valid until 1800, those of the parts of Franconia and Swabia are based on the districts that existed until the Bavarian regional reform of 1972.

As far as row I is concerned, the greater part of Bavaria is currently (May 2015) already covered. The areas still outstanding in the context of series I are already being processed (further information in the table). In the part of Old Bavaria 7 (of 71) are still missing, in the part of Franconia 15 (of 54) and in the part of Swabia 4 volumes (of 22) of series I.

Volume 1 of Series II seems to be reserved for territorial overview maps from around 1800.

The completion of the entire work is planned for 2030. Out of print volumes (December 2018: 62) have been digitized by the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek and can be viewed online, but the maps are often not usable. The digital copies can be downloaded as complete volumes from the online presence of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek. The search must be based on the author's name. The volumes of the HAB are generally available in the larger academic libraries or in the regional libraries .

As part of a cooperation between the Commission for Bavarian State History and the Upper Austrian State Archives , four more volumes are being worked on. In it, the history of the seven former Bavarian regional courts in what is now the Innviertel will be processed. The new volumes will appear in Series I as a new part of the Innviertel .

The HAB currently (May 2015) comprises 125 volumes (double volumes counted as two volumes).
