For the history of the Marteau company click here. was founded in 2001 by Anton Kirchhofer, Martin Mulsow and Olaf Simons as a website devoted to scholarly explorations of the late 17th and early 18th centuries. Associated projects are the Marteau Movie-Database opened by Sabine Biebl in 2002 and the 19th century Marteau initiated by Anton Kirchhofer in 2004.
To transform the old publishing house into a web platform inviting more communication between the participants we decided in 2006 to gradually wikify some of our projects. The step is problematic as it remains our aim to offer information you can quote – authorised knowledge in a medium of notoriously unreliable information. We have decided therefore to restrict editorship within the wiki-database to participants who are ready to stand with their names for their work. You will have to contact the editors to open an account under your name – a measure which will in return protect your own work against vandalism and unauthorised modifications: whatever you will publish with Marteau within the Marteau-wiki will appear connected with your name; all changes will bear the names of those who have made them and who can be contacted within the project and privately via e-mail.
We invite contributors to open a user page and to give information about their ongoing work, and we have no objections if they use their pages to advertise their with us - quite on the contrary: do use our site to promote work done in this field. Contact us with larger projects you might like to venture with us. We will try to support you wherever we can.
Along with the features the wikipedia medium has added to this site, we will continue to publish articles and e-texts in definite html-editions – with a strong interest in finding individual designs and effective html-concepts. Contact us if you have texts you would like to publish the old-fashioned way on the web.
semper idem,
