Authority files (keywords)

To each <category> in the taxonomy corresponds a file in the authority-files repository.

In the Authority-Files repo there are currently a series of files mainly generated from lists which have nothing but a title and an ID.

Each of these refers to one value so that they can be enriched with a description which is out of the schema and they can be used for relations and <ref> as the other IDs.

When reordering the hierarchy of the list, please remember to use the same name you give in the taxonomy.xml file also for the filename and the ID.

An example of description inside an authority file:

<abstract> <p>A miniature showing <persName ref="PRS5684JesusCh">Jesus</persName> being arrested by the guards of the Temple, (<ref cRef="urn:cts:greekLit:tlg0031.tlg001.perseus-grc1:26.50">Mt 26:50</ref>; <ref cRef="urn:cts:greekLit:tlg0031.tlg002.perseus-grc1:14.43"> Mk 14:43</ref>; <ref cRef="urn:cts:greekLit:tlg0031.tlg003.perseus-grc1:22.52">Lk 22:52</ref>; <ref cRef="urn:cts:greekLit:tlg0031.tlg004.perseus-grc1:18.3">Jn 18:3</ref>), the scene may feature additional details such as The Kiss of Judas, or <persName ref="PRS7805Peter">Peter</persName> cutting off the ear of Malchus (<ref cRef="urn:cts:greekLit:tlg0031.tlg001.perseus-grc1:26.50">Mt 26:51</ref>; <ref cRef="urn:cts:greekLit:tlg0031.tlg002.perseus-grc1:14.47"> Mk 14:47</ref>; <ref cRef="urn:cts:greekLit:tlg0031.tlg003.perseus-grc1:22.50">Lk 22:50</ref> <ref cRef="urn:cts:greekLit:tlg0031.tlg004.perseus-grc1:18.10">Jn 18:10</ref>). </p> </abstract>

Indeed these authority files for each keyword can also receive keywords and any further content, similarly to all other records. A special use case is for example that of Art Themes.
