We describe work on porting linguistic and semantic annotation applied to the Austrian Baroque Corpus (ABaC:us) to a format sup-porting its publication in the Linked Open Data Framework. This work includes several aspects, like a derived lexicon of old forms used in the texts and their mapping to modern German lemmas, the description of morpho-syntactic features and the building of domain-specific controlled vocabularies for covering the semantic aspects of this historical corpus. As a central and recurrent topic in the texts is death and dying, a first step in our work was geared towards the establishment of a death-related taxonomy. In order to provide for lin-guistic information to their textual content, labels of the taxonomy are pointing to linked data in the field of language resources.
