61st Rencontre Assyriologique Internationale
 
The Département des sciences de l’Antiquité of the University of Geneva and the Abteilung für Vorderasiatische Archäologie of the University of Bern have the pleasure of inviting you to convene for the 61st Rencontre in Switzerland.

Our theme, Text and Image, endeavors to stimulate a renewed dialogue between those of us who study the written legacy and those who study the material legacy of the ancient Near East. We welcome all efforts that aim at a holistic under­standing of the complete ancient Near Eastern human being. In order to accommodate excavation schedules, the 61st RAI in Geneva and Bern will take place from 22 to 26 June 2015.

Biblical Studies Online
http://biblicalstudiesonline.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/biblical-studies-header-geometric2.jpg
The goal of Biblical Studies Online is to provide both biblical scholars and the interested wider public with ease of access to quality biblical scholarship, as it comes available online.

More and more biblical scholarship is being published open-access and online – not only in traditional book form, but in a variety of media, including videos and sound recordings. In addition there are many more free New Testament and free Old Testament materials available to read.

Unfortunately, it is often difficult to locate these resources on the internet, and sometimes difficult for those less experienced with biblical scholarship to distinguish worthwhile material from that which is inaccurate or even grossly misleading. And when it comes to the Bible, there is no shortage of the latter to be found. For this reason, Biblical Studies Online offers a gateway for the dissemination and publicizing of worthwhile open-access, online biblical scholarship.

To search for online Biblical Studies resources, please either click on the category in which you are interested, or use the search-box, in the column to the right.
Biblical Studies Online is maintained by:

    African rock art image project
    Africa’s rock art is as diverse as the continent itself. In 2013, the African rock art image project team began cataloguing around 25,000 digital photographs of rock art from across Africa – originally from the Trust for African Rock Art (TARA) – through generous support from the Arcadia Fund.
    Combining a wide range of research from the British Museum, TARA and colleagues in Africa, the project is cataloguing and digitally preserving African rock art, ensuring global open access well into the future.

    On these pages, you can explore the images catalogued so far by country,
    and find out more through a series of themes. You can also find answers to some key questions about African rock art:

    de Gruyter Open: Vergil´s Political Commentary in the Eclogues, Georgics and Aeneid

    New in de Gruyter Open:
    DE GRUYTER OPEN

    Open Access

    Aims and Scope

    In the book titled Vergil's political commentary in Eclogues, Georgics and Aeneid, the author examines Vergil’s political views by analyzing the whole of the poet’s work. He introduces the notion of the functional model suggesting that the poet often used this instrument when making a political statement. New interpretations of a number of the Eclogues and passages of the Georgics and the Aeneid are suggested and the author concludes that Vergil’s political engagement is visible in much of his work. During his whole career the poet was consistent in his views on several major political themes. These varied from, the distress caused by the violation of the countryside during and after the expropriations in the 40s B.C., to the horrors of the civil war and the violence of war in general, and the necessity of strong leadership. Vergil hoped and expected that Octavian would establish peace and order, and he supported a form of hereditary kingship for which he considered Octavian a suitable candidate. He held Cleopatra in high regard, and he appreciated a more meaningful role for women in society. Vergil wrote poetry that supported Augustus, but he had also the courage to criticize Octavian and his policies. He was a commentator with an independent mind and was not a member of Augustus’ putative propaganda machine.

    New Open Access Journal: International Journal for Digital Art History

    International Journal for Digital Art History
    http://www.dah-journal.org/images/No_1.jpg
    The peer reviewed journal seeks to gather current developments in the field of Digital Art History world-wide and to foster discourse on the subject both from Art History and Information Science.
    The Digital Age has revolutionized economy, society and our private lives. For decades now, digitalization has also touched most branches of the humanities. With the rising importance of the so called Digital Humanities, Art History is at the brink of new ways of accessing its material and gaining unprecedented insights. 

    Many approaches are currently evolving in the international sphere of Art History and many questions still remain unanswered: What requirements does Art History have towards Information Technology? What projects do exist that can serve as best practice? Which direction does Art History go from here? How can we build an international community to reach our shared goals in research? 

    Thus, the "International Journal of Digital Art History" (DAH) gives authors in this field the opportunity to reach a wider audience, spark a discussion on the future of our discipline and generate an international and interdisciplinary network of scholars and practitioners. 

    The journal is edited in order to gather articles around a common theme in each issue. In addition it is peer reviewd by at least two reviewers in a double-blind process. It is published online and in print. Contributions are welcome. For information on the current Call for Manuscripts and further details for authors, please see the respective pages on this website.

    ROMURBITAL - an archaeological database of higher-order settlements on the Italian peninsula (350 BCE to 300 CE)

    Jamie Sewell, 2015


    http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/archives/view/romurbital_mc_2015/images/romurbitalmap.jpg
    These data-files are the product of a two-year research project (ROMURBITAL) to create an analytical database and GIS of 583 (proto-)urban centres on the Italian peninsula that existed between 350 BCE and 300 CE. The project was undertaken by Dr. Jamie Sewell as a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship (Project No. 300969) at the Archaeology Department of Durham University between 2012 and 2014 (Scientist in Charge: Dr. Robert Witcher).
    For a full description of the research aims, selection criteria and methodological development of the project, see the Internet Archaeology article: Sewell, J.P and Witcher, R. (2015).

    Open Access Journal: Bulletin for Biblical Research (BBR)

    [First posted in AWOL 1 November 2009. Updated 30 June 2015]

     For over 30 years, the Institute for Biblical Research has offered to evangelical biblical scholars and Ph.D. students a venue for creative, reflective and serious biblical scholarship. One might not have suspected such an auspicious outcome back in 1970, when a few biblical scholars gathered for lunch during the SBL meeting in New York. The meeting was called by E. Earle Ellis, the founding visionary behind IBR. He dreamed of a North American based residential reference library (non-lending) similar to that of the Tyndale Fellowship for Biblical Research, Tyndale House Library, Cambridge, England. For the following three years, a small group calling themselves the Tyndale Committee discussed the viability of creating a residential library. In the end, they were persuaded that the library vision required a societal matrix to realize its goal, and thus in 1973 was birthed the Institute for Biblical Research...

    ...Publications were a primary concern for IBR. In 1989 it launched the Bulletin for Biblical Research (BBR) under the editorship of Bruce Chilton, published by Eisenbrauns. The first journal was published in 1991. In 1994, Craig Evans continued as editor and advanced BBR to a bi-annual journal. In 2005, Richard S. Hess took over editorial responsibilities, significantly enlarging the journal. The BBR Supplement Series began in 2007 with the appearance of its first monograph.
