  "abstract": "<p><a href=\"\">ONAMA &ndash; Ontology of Narratives of the Middle Ages</a>&nbsp;enables the systematic comparison of the structures and building blocks of many narratives in medieval literature and images.</p>\n\n<p>This ontology provides a model for a cross-media description of actions, actors, settings and temporal structures. In addition to the constituting basic elements of transmedial&nbsp;<em>narrative nuclei</em>, these descriptions record the respective textual and pictorial realizations in detail. They thus go beyond the&nbsp;<em>plot</em>&nbsp;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&nbsp;<em>ONAMA - Ontology of Narratives of the Middle Ages</em>, which is carried out as an interdisciplinary cooperation between the&nbsp;<a href=\"\">Middle High German Conceptual Database (MHDBDB)</a>&nbsp;and the&nbsp;<a href=\"\">Institute for Medieval and Early Modern Material Culture (IMAREAL)</a>, both of which are affiliated to the&nbsp;<a href=\"\">Interdisciplinary Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (IZMF)</a>&nbsp;at the&nbsp;<a href=\"\">University of Salzburg</a>. The project is funded by the go!digital programme of the&nbsp;<a href=\"\">Austrian Academy of Sciences</a>.</p>",
