The annals of the Metropolitan See of Philippopolis (Plovdiv) are a manuscript recond kept for several decades in the end of the 18th and the first half of the 19th c. by the Greek-speaking office of the diocese belonging to the Constantinople Patriarchate. They contain regiostries of salaries, taxes, donations, contracts, notes on important events of local and broader significance, appointments of church officials and local magistrates, etc. This interesting and important collection of evidence for the history of Plovdiv, Thrace and the South-Eastern Balkans under Ottoman rule was deciphered, transcribed, translated and commented by a team of specialists and partly encoded in TEI XML. A platform was built for the parallel display of the aligned original and translational texts together with editor's notes and commentaries, as well as images of the original documents. The texts searchable and browsable by record and by page, with automatically created indexes of encoded named entities and the possibility of adding and developing further functionalities.
