Clunypedia - using technology to interpret heritage

Clunypedia is the digital platform for the Cluniac network. It showcases new technologies to aid understanding of the Cluniac experience in Europe and to promote and interpret Cluniac sites. There is still a great deal to discover !

Clunypedia has been developed in partnership with Paztec- a company specialising in 3D modelling and portable applications. Its aim is to gather all knowledge and information about Cluniac heritage throughout Europe. This will be available to all- site managers, tourists, researchers, children and young people, historians… and you!

The aims of the Clunypedia project :

  • To promote understanding of the role of Cluny and Cluniac sites throughout Europe in our shared history;
  • To promote the preservation of the Cluniac heritage;
  • To use digital media to strengthen European cultural identity.
Clunypedia is an internet platform which includes a map of Europe with all the Cluniac sites marked. From here you can access free, downloadable apps to enhance your visits- Clunetour for visits to Cluny; Clunypedia 71 for visits to Saone-et-Loire. These apps allow you to discover fascinating medieval objects presented in 3D so that you can examine them closely.
