    P. Euphrate: Le corpus des documents du Moyen Euphrate

    P. Euphrate: Le corpus des documents du Moyen Euphrate 
    J. Gascou
    Les documents grecs et syriaques d’époque romaine du Moyen Euphrate (couramment cités  sous le sigle P.Euphr.) ont déjà suscité une abondante littérature scientifique. Toutefois, comme les éditions, qui se sont échelonnées de 1990 à 2000, se dispersent entre plusieurs revues, dont certaines sont peu familières aux romanistes, leur utilisation méthodique n’allait pas sans difficultés. C’est pourquoi nous avons voulu les réunir dans un catalogue muni d’un index. Constantin Zuckerman, qui a accueilli ce projet avec faveur, a bien voulu nous proposer une structure d’accueil éditoriale et a déjà mis à notre disposition quelques moyens. Grâce à ce soutien, nous disposons dès à présent d’un index complet, disponible à titre de "working paper" dans la section Documentation ci-dessous.

    Biblicum Jassyense: Romanian Journal for Biblical Philology and Hermeneutics
    ISSN: 2068-7664
    "Biblicum Jassyense" is an annually peer reviewed international journal. Its aim is to reflect, from a neutral point of view, the philological debates that animate the domain of the Romanian and South-East European traditions of the Bible in the European context. We are also paying attention to the history of literarure and the history of religions, research that have as starting point the canonical or apocryphal religious texts from the proximity of the biblical tradition. In the studies, discussion notes and reviews sections we are hosting debates that approach such wider interest areas, but always have as starting point precise philological and hermeneutical applications.

    New Online at the CHS: Eusebius of Caesarea: Tradition and Innovations

    Eusebius of Caesarea: Tradition and Innovations, by Aaron Johnson and Jeremy Schott, eds.
    Johnson and Schott coverThe Center for Hellenic Studies is pleased to announce the online publication of Eusebius of Caesarea: Tradition and Innovations, by Aaron Johnson and Jeremy Schott, eds. on the CHS website. The work is available for purchase in print via Harvard University Press.
    Eusebius of Caesarea was one of the most significant and voluminous contributors to the development of late antique literary culture. Despite his significance, Eusebius has tended to receive attention more as a source for histories of early Christianity and the Constantinian empire than as a writer and thinker in his own right. He was a compiler and copyist of pagan and Christian texts, collator of a massive chronographical work, commentator on scriptural texts, author of apologetic, historical, educational, and biographical works, and custodian of one of the greatest libraries in the ancient world. As such, Eusebius merits a primary place in our appreciation of the literary culture of late antiquity for both his self-conscious conveyance of multiple traditions and his fostering of innovative literary and intellectual trajectories. By focusing on the full range of Eusebius’s literary corpus, the collection of essays in Eusebius of Caesarea offers new and innovative studies that will change the ways classicists, theologians, and ancient historians think about this major figure.

    Greek Manuscripts in Sweden

    [First posted in AWOL 8 December 2013, updated 18 May 2015]

    Greek Manuscripts in Sweden
    Welcome to the project homepage of Greek Manuscripts in Sweden. The aim of this project is to digitize and catalogue all the Greek manuscripts in Sweden. Around 120 Greek manuscripts are kept in Swedish libraries, but only a few of them have up to now been available in digital form online. Libraries that contribute material to the database include Gothenburg University Library (4 MSS), Linköping Diocesan Library (29 MSS), Lund University Library (5 MSS), Nationalmuseum, Stockholm (1 MS), The Royal Library, Stockholm (5 MSS), The Skokloster Castle Library (3 MSS), and Uppsala University Library (74 MSS). The project is run by two researchers, Dr. Eva Nyström and Dr. Patrik Granholm, in collaboration with photographers and computer specialists at Uppsala University Library. The Central Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation has contributed financial support.
    The Greek manuscripts, in the form of bound parchment and paper volumes, include a rich and diverse collection of texts from antiquity and the Byzantine period. They originate mainly from the Byzantine cultural area from the tenth century onwards, but some are Renaissance or early modern manuscripts from Western Europe. The existing nineteenth-century catalogue is outdated and in many cases incorrect. Furthermore it does not cover all manuscripts. It is therefore essential to create a new catalogue according to modern principles, including detailed codicological descriptions. Combined with a comprehensive digitization of the manuscripts this will facilitate and encourage new research on the material among Swedish and international scholars. The catalogue will be fully searchable by the encoding in TEI P5, which is an XML-based metadata standard for manuscript cataloguing.

    Open Context Upgrade Progress

    Open Context Upgrade Progress
    May 18, 2015 
    Last summer, we launched a major programming effort to upgrade Open Context. The upgrade involves completely rewriting all of Open Context’s software so as to more efficiently scale Open Context and take advantage of technology standards that have emerged to prominence since our last major upgrade back in 2009-2011.

    We’ve now deployed the new version of Open Context on a testing / development server generously provided by the German Archaeological Institute (DAI). The new testing / development version is hosted here:

    The most important “back-end” aspects of the new version of Open Context are in place and functioning. We still need to add several user-interface features, site documentation, and some data visualization features, so this is still a work-in-progress. We are also still testing mapping interface features against different browsers, noting bugs, and addressing issues that cause confusion or broken functionality. If you notice any bugs or have suggestions for improvement, please make raise issues and comments at our source-code repository!

    A major reason for our upgrade centers on the need to more fully implement Linked Open Data methods for interoperability. We’ll write more on these developments shortly, but for now, we’ll highlight how the new version of Open Context is starting to use linked data to situate content in more clearly defined temporal contexts. We are now testing use of PeriodO URIs for chronological metadata. PeriodO (a project led by Adam Rabinowitz, Ryan Shaw and Open Context’s Eric Kansa) provides a framework and data model for researches and other authorities (data repositories, museums, etc.) to publish assertions about time periods. Here’s an example of items in Open Context relating to the “Orientalizing” period in Italy, as modeled by PeriodO.

    The new API (application program interface) for Open Context is now fully implemented (except for finishing touches on files that define certain namespaces). Already, the API is supporting original research, including this intriguing text-analysis and topic modeling project launched by Shawn Graham (described here and here and other places). In addition, Ben Marwick, Lincoln Mullen and Scott Chamberlain other colleagues with rOpenScience have started developing an rStats package built on top of Open Context‘s new API. This rStats package is particularly exciting, since it can open a whole new world of statistical analyses and data visualization.
