Pede certo: metrica latina digitale

Pede certo: metrica latina digitale
Pede certo è uno strumento per l’analisi automatica dei versi latini, messo a punto dall’Università di Udine nell’ambito del progetto FIRB Traditio patrum. La sua applicazione all’archivio digitale Musisque Deoque— che comprende i testi della poesia latina dalle origini al VII secolo d.C. — ha consentito la scansione dei circa 244.000 versi dattilici in esso contenuti.
In questo sito un motore di ricerca appositamente sviluppato si avvale dei risultati dell’analisi per interrogare il corpus su base metrica, secondo molteplici approcci.
Nella pagina Scansioni libereè disponibile inoltre un dimostrativo semplificato, ma immediatamente usabile, dello strumento con cui è stata eseguita la scansione.

Pede certo is program for the automatic analysing of Latin verses developed by the Università di Udine as part of the Traditio patrum FIRB project. Its application to the Musisque Deoque digital archive – containing Latin poetry texts from the archaic period to the 7th century AD – has enabled the scansion of approximately 244,000 dactylic verses.
On this site, a specifically developed search engine that draws upon the results of the scansion may be used to conduct metrical investigations of the corpus, through a variety of approaches.

UNESCO Database of National Cultural Heritage Laws

UNESCO Database of National Cultural Heritage Laws
In 2003, UNESCO devised an international solution to combat the illicit traffic of cultural property: the UNESCO Database of National Cultural Heritage Laws.
By compiling on the Internet the national laws of its Member States, UNESCO offers all stakeholders involved (Governments, customs officials, art dealers, organizations, lawyers, buyers and so forth) a complete and easily accessible source of information. In the event of a legal question about the origin of an object (which may have been stolen, pillaged, or illegally exported, imported or acquired), it is useful to have rapid access to the relevant national laws.
The UNESCO Database of National Cultural Heritage Laws allows the following to be consulted:
  • national laws currently in force related to the protection of the cultural heritage in general;
  • import/export certificates for cultural property (available on request);
  • official or unofficial translations of national laws and certificates;
  • contact details for the national authorities responsible for the protection of the cultural heritage;
  • addresses of the official national websites dedicated to the protection of the cultural heritage.
The database offers access to national legislation relating to the cultural heritage in general, in other words the laws on the following main categories of heritage:
  • cultural heritage:
    -tangible cultural heritage:
    ->immovable cultural heritage (monuments, archaeological sites, etc.)
    ->movable cultural heritage (paintings, coins, archaeological objects, etc.)
    ->underwater cultural heritage (shipwrecks, underwater cities, etc.
-intangible cultural heritage (oral traditions, performing arts, rituals, etc.)
  • natural heritage (natural sites, physical, biological or geological formations, etc.).
For more information, please see the list of international normative instruments for the protection of the cultural heritage (conventions, agreements, charters, codes, declarations, action plans, protocols, recommendations, etc.).

Newly Online: Collection de l'Institut des Sciences et Techniques de l'Antiquité

Collection de l'Institut des Sciences et Techniques de l'Antiquité
The “Institut des Sciences et Techniques de l’Antiquité” (ISTA, Institute of Antiquity’s Sciences and Technical Skills) is a research team that was created in 1967 at the University of Franche-Comté (Besançon, France). From the start but known at the time as “Centre d’Histoire Ancienne” (Centre for Ancient History), the team focused on the publication of academic work in the field of Antiquity, first with a collection, then with an academic journal, Dialogues d’Histoire Ancienne, which was founded in 1974.

The first issues were published in 1959 by the Annales Littéraires de l’Université de Besançon. The following ones augmented the collection with research on slavery and emancipation, which resulted in the creation of “Groupe International de Recherche sur l’Esclavage dans l’Antiquité” (GIREA, International Research Team on Slavery in Antiquity). Finally, the merging of the “Centre d’Histoire Ancienne” and of the Institut Félix Gaffiot gave its current form to the collection.
The collection now publishes pluridisciplinary works from French and international researchers, in the form of monographs, collective books or edited sources, as well as the academic journal and its supplements (DHA).

Moving People, Linking Lives: An Interdisciplinary Symposium

“Moving People, Linking Lives,” University of Virginia, March 20 and 21, 2015.  

We plan two days of plenary sessions to bring together a diverse group of distinguished scholars from various fields, under the broad themes of current scholarship in digital humanities and the representation of persons and life narratives.

This interdisciplinary symposium, organized by Alison Booth, Amy Ogden, and Jenny Strauss Clay, is funded by the Page Barbour Lecture Fund and co-sponsored by the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities, Scholars’ Lab, and the departments of English, French, and Classics, among others at the University of Virginia. Clearly, new media and digital methods offer the means to expand, coordinate, and share research in every discipline of the humanities. We hope to raise informed questions, especially, about contemporary social networks and prosopographies in various eras; narratology focused on nonfiction; collective biographies in the print era; biographical databases; Medieval hagiography; and mapping roads and routes and configuring human spaces.  Shaped by the experience and expertise of all participants, our discussion will also focus on attracting users and contributors, academic and otherwise, and integrating our innovations with traditional scholarship.

News from Cuneiform Digital Library Notes

From Klaus Wagensonner <klaus.wagensonner@orinst.ox.ac.uk>:
We are pleased to announce the publication of several new
contributions to the Cuneiform Digital Library Notes (CDLN)

CDLN 2015:004
Armando Bramanti, A Jemdet Nasr Fragment in the Collections of the
Oriental Institute of Chicago

CDLN 2015:005
Troels Pank Arbøll, A curious Ur III Tablet at the University of
Copenhagen: Notes on the History of Pinches’ Collection and an
Official named Abbagina

CDLN 2015:006
Klaus Wagensonner, A legal text at the Russell Library, Maynooth University

CDLN 2015:007
Strahil V. Panayotov, The tablet of the Middle Assyrian ‘coronation’
ritual: the placement of VAT 10113 and the displacement of VAT 9978

CDLN 2015:008
Gábor Zólyomi, Ashm 1924-478: a new ms. of the “The temple hymns” (ETCSL 4.80.1)

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all contributors to
CDLN for their support and would like to encourage scholars to
contribute to the Notes in future as well.

References and bibliographies:
All bibliographical information is drawn directly from a MySQL
database. It is therefore not necessary anymore to send fully
formatted bibliographies along with submitted contributions. For all
references that are included among the latest available bibliographies
on KeiBi Online (<http://vergil.uni-tuebingen.de/keibi/>) it is
possible to save references and export them into the BibTeX format and
send this document along. A full bibliography was added on CDLN
(<http://cdli.ucla.edu/pubs/cdln/php/bibliography.php>), which
contains all references used in the various contributions. Clicking on
a year leads to the respective contribution(s), where the chosen
reference is used. Vice versa, each reference list links back to the
full bibliography.

As a test run the “Abbreviations for Assyriology” maintained by
CDLI:wiki (<http://cdli.ox.ac.uk/wiki/doku.php?id=abbreviations_for_assyriology>)
have been imported into the database as well. By hovering over
abbreviations in the bibliographies the full form and additional
information is given. Further features such as indices of texts
mentioned are in preparation.

We do hope that these changes will increase the efficiency of CDLN and
are therefore happy to receive contributions for the next publication
of Notes on July 1, 2015.

Submitted contributions are preferably made available as text files or
in the RTF format. If the contribution contains tables, word or pages
documents may be submitted as well. We would appreciate as few
formatting as possible. Please note that in order to aid the editing
process, please be so kind to provide all images in separate files and
not embed them in the submitted documents.

The CDLN, together with its sister publications Cuneiform Digital
Library Bulletin (CDLB; <http://cdli.ucla.edu/pubs/cdlb.html>) and
Cuneiform Digital Library Journal (CDLJ;
<http://cdli.ucla.edu/pubs/cdlj.html>), are peer-reviewed publications
that offer a persistent web presence under the auspices of the
University of California system. As e-journals, the delay between
submission and publication is well below that of academic print
journals, while the interaction with cuneiform artifacts documented in
the CDLI database offers obvious strengths for an interactive
discourse. Authors should expect a two to four month interval between
submission of a draft text with illustrations and its publication for
substantive contributions to the CDLJ, at most two months for those
made to the Bulletin, and approximately two weeks for the Notes that
are conceived as an online venue for NABU-style communications that
can include short philological or lexicographical contributions as
well as regular updates of a more substantial nature describing the
background or progress of, in particular, web-based research efforts.
For submission guidelines including technicalities regarding
bibliographical citations etc. please consult the information at

New submissions will appear in preprint status four times a year
(January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1; notices of new submissions
will be made to this list) and are clearly marked as such. During the
preprint period, authors will be able to make small, non-substantive
changes (e.g., typographical errors) to their submissions. After two
weeks, these submissions are then archived.

Scholars are encouraged to send contributions to the CDLN at

Travelogues: Travellers' Views

Travelogues: Travellers' Views
Places – Monuments – People
Southeastern Europe – Eastern Mediterranean
Greece – Asia Minor – Southern Italy

Travelogues website was created within the broader project of Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation to promote Greek culture, and especially Greek literature, on a national and international level. This website aims to make known the graphic materials found in travel accounts of journeys to Greece and the eastern Mediterranean from the 15th century onwards, and thus contribute both to students' education and scientific research. An important part of the editions that constituted the data base of the website belongs to the Historical Library of the Foundation, currently under construction.

Travelogues will periodically be updated with material from major libraries in Greece, such as Gennadius Library and Benaki Museum Library. This material, already in process, spans the time from the 15th to the early 20th century. Of approximately 4500 images, 560 have already been incorporated in the website's collections. In the same sense, the bibliography shall be updated with the most recent research contributions. User feedback will be taken into consideration and the pertinent modifications will get reflected.

Catullus Online: An Online Repertory of Conjectures on Catullus
This website offers a critical edition of the poems of Catullus, a repertory of conjectures on the text, an overview of the ancient quotations from Catullus that have independent source value, and high-quality images of some of the most important manuscripts.   It was constructed between 2009 and 2013 in the course of the research project An Online Repertory of Conjectures for Catullus at the Center for Advanced Studies and the Abteilung für Griechische und Lateinische Philologie of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.   It was conceived and designed, and its contents were assembled by Dániel Kiss, who continues to act as its editor.   The technical framework of the site was built by Woodpecker Software, while Stalker Studio were responsible for the graphic design.

Most of the research that has led to the repertory was conducted at the branches of the Universitätsbibliothek of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, and at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek.   Further research was done in Munich at the library of Monumenta Germaniae Historica, that of the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae, and that of the Franziskanerkloster St. Anna im Lehel; and at the Staats- und Stadtbibliothek in Augsburg; the Harry Ransom Center in Austin (Texas); the library of the Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut–Preussischer Kulturbesitz, the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin–Preussischer Kulturbesitz, and the Universitätsbibliothek of the Humboldt-Universität in Berlin; the Koninklijke Bibliotheek–Bibliothèque Royale in Brussels; the Országos Széchényi Könyvtár in Budapest; the Davis Library, the Ullman Library, and the Wilson Library of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, as well as the library of Sara Mack in Chapel Hill (North Carolina); the Biblioteka Jagiellońska in Cracow; the Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana, the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale, and the Biblioteca Riccardiana in Florence; the British Library in London; the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library in New Haven (Connecticut); the Morgan Library and the New York Public Library in New York; the Bodleian Library in Oxford; the Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris; the library of the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa; the National Library of Russia in St. Petersburg; the Székesfehérvári Püspöki Könyvtár in Székesfehérvár; the Biblioteca Reale and the Biblioteca Nazionale Universitaria in Turin; the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana in the Vatican; the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana in Venice; and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.   Visits to these libraries were made possible by the generous research funding provided by the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, and by the kind hospitality of Zsófia Ruttkay and Paul ten Hagen in Budapest; Sara Mack in Chapel Hill (North Carolina); Adam F. Jackson and Melissa A. Epstein in New York; Diane Le Grand de Belleroche and Cyril Simon in Paris and Nogent-sur-Marne; Paolo Natali in Pisa; and William McKelvey in Washington, D.C.   Those who have helped to track down conjectures or rare books include Giuseppe Gilberto Biondi, David Butterfield, Carlotta Dionisotti, Julia Gaisser, Daniel Hadas, Stephen Harrison, Jeffrey Henderson, Giovanni Maggiali, Michael Reeve, and John Trappes-Lomax.

The editor is especially grateful to James O’Hara, James Rives, Cecil W. Wooten, and their colleagues at the Department of Classics of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, who have enabled him to study the Hale-Ullman Papers at the Department, and to have scans made of the collation or the transcription of 113 manuscripts of Catullus that were made by William Gardner Hale, Euan T. Sage, Berthold L. Ullman, and others around the first decade of the twentieth century.
The Bodleian Library has provided images of Catullus’ codex O, and the Bibliothèque nationale de France of G and T.   The copyright © of these images is asserted on behalf of the respective libraries, as of 2013.
An image of a fresco fragment that is used in the website has been kindly provided by the Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici della Lombardia, thanks to the mediation of Elisabetta Roffia; copyright © by concession of the Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali – Soprintendenza per i beni archeologici della Lombardia, 2013.   The fragment was discovered in the Roman villa at Sirmione (Brescia), and is conserved at the Museo Archeologico di Sirmione.   It has been dated to the Augustan period.   It shows a bare-footed young man holding a book-roll, wearing a toga of a Republican type.   He has been identified tentatively with Catullus.

The text and the remaining elements of the website are copyright © Dániel Kiss, 2013.
