  "description": "<p><a href=\"\">ONAMA</a>&nbsp;(<a href=\"\"></a>) &ndash; Ontology of Narratives of the Middle Ages &ndash; enables the systematic comparison of the structures and building blocks of many narratives in medieval literature and images.</p>\n\n<p>This ontology&nbsp;provides a model for a cross-media description of actions, actors, settings and temporal structures. In addition to the constituting basic elements of transmedial &ldquo;narrative nuclei&quot;, these descriptions record the respective textual and pictorial realizations in detail. They thus go beyond the &ldquo;plot&quot; of a story or picture cycle. ONAMA allows to identify patterns and peculiarities in the construction of narratives, which can then be examined for their underlying causes and functions.</p>\n\n<p>ONAMA enables to annotate image and text sources in a way that the generated data provide information about the emergence and transmission of narrative nuclei, figure constellations, patterns of actions, etc. in the respective medium and in cross-media synopses.</p>\n\n<p>The ONAMA ontology was developed in the course of the project <a href=\"\">ONAMA - Ontology of Narratives of the Middle Ages -</a>, which is carried out as an interdisciplinary cooperation between the <a href=\"\">Mittelhochdeutsche Begriffsdatenbank</a> (<strong>MHDBDB</strong>) and the <a href=\"\">Institut f&uuml;r Realienkunde des Mittelalters und der fr&uuml;hen Neuzeit</a> (<strong>IMAREAL</strong>), both of which are affiliated to the <a href=\"\">Interdisziplin&auml;res Zentrum f&uuml;r Mittelalter und Fr&uuml;hneuzeit</a> (<strong>IZMF</strong>) at the <a href=\"\">University of Salzburg</a>. The project is funded by the go!digital programme of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.</p>",
