The 14th instalment of the Thesaurus d'Epigraphie Islamique was released in January 2017. It contains inscriptions from the Caucasus, Russia and Ukraine, grouped together with the 13 previous instalments which cover Maghreb countries, the Arabian Peninsula, Central (ex-Soviet) Asia, Egypt, the Indian World, Sub-Saharan Africa, Irak, Western Europe, Southeast Asia, Near East, Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan. Approximately 41'000 epigraphical files of inscriptions are available (25'000 toponyms) as well as 6'300 photographs.

The Max van Berchem Foundation now offers access to the new Thesaurus d'Epigraphie Islamique site free of charge. Standard web browsers have been tested (Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer) in their most recent version.
