CAMERA KALAUREIA An Archaeological Photo-Ethnography | Μια αρχαιολογική φωτο-εθνογραφία by Yannis Hamilakis & Fotis Ifantidis.
170 pages; illustrated in full colour throughout. Full text in English and Greek. Available both in print and Open Access.
ISBN 9781784914141. 
How can we find alternative, sensorially rich and affective ways of engaging with the material past in the present?

How can photography play a central role in archaeological narratives, beyond representation and documentation?

This photo-book engages with these questions, not through conventional academic discourse but through evocative creative practice. The book is, at the same time, a site guide of sorts: a photographic guide to the archaeological site of the Sanctuary of Poseidon in Kalaureia, on the island of Poros, in Greece.

Ancient and not-so-ancient stones, pine trees that were “wounded” for their resin, people who lived amongst the classical ruins, and the tensions and the clashes with the archaeological apparatus and its regulations, all become palpable, affectively close and immediate.

Furthermore, the book constitutes an indirect but concrete proposal for the adoption of archaeological photo-ethnography as a research as well as public communication tool for critical heritage studies, today.

ANS coins from RIC 6-10 published to OCRE, and other updates
Following the release of volumes 6, 7, 8, and 10 to OCRE, we have republished our coins from these volumes to link them into the newly-published coin type URIs. This represents an addition of more than 17,000 physical specimens of late Roman coinage into OCRE, including photographs for more than 3,000 of these (and photographic gaps from previous volumes of RIC). There are now 36,000 Roman imperial coins from the ANS collection in OCRE, and 60,000 in total from all our partners. Including CRRO and PELLA, there are just under 100,000 physical coins aggregated by Nomisma.org's SPARQL endpoint.

In addition to these coins, the Portable Antiquities Scheme provided access to several hundred imperial coins linked to OCRE URIs. The PAS had previously linked its entire collection of Republican coins (nearly 1,000) into CRRO, but the inclusion of imperial material in OCRE is a watershed moment for the study of Roman numismatics. These are the first few hundred of potentially hundreds of thousands of coins published in their database, each with attested findspots. This will have a dramatic effect on geographic analysis of ancient monetary circulation and trade.

The Harvard Art Museums API was also reprocessed. Harvard's coverage of late Roman coinage is quite good, and their contribution to OCRE has more than doubled to 1,300 coins.

Biblical and Ancient Greek Linguistics (BAGL)
http://bagl.org/img/bagl-logo.png
Biblical and Ancient Greek Linguistics (BAGL) is an international journal that exists to further the application of modern linguistics to the study of Ancient and Biblical Greek, with a particular focus on the analysis of texts, including but not restricted to the Greek New Testament.

The journal is hosted by McMaster Divinity College and works in conjunction with its Centre for Biblical Linguistics, Translation and Exegesis, and the OpenText.org organization (www.opentext.org) in the hosting of conferences and symposia open to scholars and students working in Greek linguistics who are interested in contributing to advancing the discussion and methods of the field of research. BAGL is a refereed on-line and print journal dedicated to distributing the results of significant research in the area of linguistic theory and application to biblical and ancient Greek, and is open to all scholars, not just those connected to the Centre and the OpenText.org project.
Volume 4 (2015)

4.1
Joseph D. Fantin
Dallas Theological Seminary
It is agreed that both context and Greek studies are essential components of the exegetical process. This article explores the function of language itself within society. The focus is not on the typical “meaning” of language as an information carrier but rather on the meaning that the use of particular linguistic elements brings to the communication situation. In other words, I will consider language itself as a social phenomenon. In order to achieve this goal, using Acts 21:27–40 as a test case, I will first consider selective elements of the social and historical context that when understood will contribute to recreating the context of the passage (cognitive environment). Then, with this contextual information activated in the exegetical process, I will consider the social impact of this information on two recorded speech incidents from Acts 21:27–40 resulting in a better understanding of the passage. This will demonstrate that in addition to the informational linguistic meaning, an understanding of the social use of language itself is a valuable tool for understanding the biblical text.
Keywords: Acts 21:27–40, exegesis, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, New Testament backgrounds, New Testament contexts, cognitive environment, Greek, relevance theory
4.2
Jonathan M. Watt
Geneva College, Beaver Falls, PA, USA
A sociolinguistic approach to Paul’s language usage in the Jerusalem arrest narratives of Acts 21–22 offers inferences with regard to his specific language choices between Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic during his interactions. However, modern language studies show considerable inter-language penetration that, by implication, complicate conclusions one may reach with regard to the NT situation.
Keywords: sociolinguistics, multilingualism, linguistic repertoire, code-switching, cross-linguistic penetration
4.3
Hughson T. Ong
McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, ON, Canada
This article discusses three distinct types of discourse analysis models—Social Identity Theory and Communication Accommodation Theory (CAT), Conversation Analysis (CA), and SFL Register Analysis—and applies them individually to the text in Acts 21:27—22:5 to examine various aspects and elements that comprise the context of situation of the incident of Paul’s arrest in the temple. The main objective is to showcase the relevance and utility of sociolinguistic theories in New Testament exegesis.
Keywords: Acts 21:27—22:5, sociolinguistics, exegesis, discourse analysis, social identity theory, speech or communication accommodation theory, conversation analysis, register analysis
4.4
James D. Dvorak
Oklahoma Christian University, Edmond, OK, USA
This article approaches the topic of persuasion from a social perspective rather than rhetorical or socio-rhetorical. This is because, at heart, persuasion—of others or of self—is ultimately a social action in which values are negotiated. Dvorak argues that to analyze the persuasiveness of a discourse requires a sociolinguistic model, and the model that is best suited for the job is Appraisal Theory, which is built upon the theoretical foundation of Systemic Functional Linguistics.
Keywords: persuasion, appraisal, evaluation, 1 Corinthians, values, power, discourse analysis
Volume 3 (2014)

3.1
Paul L. Danove
Villanova University, Villanova, PA, USA
Τίθημι and its compounds present the broadest range of licensing properties of any set of verbal compounds in the Septuagint and New Testament. This article resolves the occurrences of τίθημι and its twenty compounds into twenty–six distinct usages. The discussion of each usage “derives” the event that the verbs grammaticalize, specifies the conceptualization of the event associated with each usage, describes the syntactic and semantic requirements for verbs with the usage, identifies the observed lexical realizations of required complements, and illustrates occurrences of the verbs with the usage. The discussion then summarizes the relationships among the usages, proposes a further basis for relating the events, and notes the possibility of polysemous interpretations of verbal occurrences.
Keywords: event, lexical, semantic, syntactic, usage, verb
3.2
James D. Dvorak and Ryder Dale Walton
Oklahoma Christian University
Too often, study of the biblical text degenerates into rudimentary word studies, leaving aside larger syntactic and logical connections. This paper proposes that careful study should include considerations of genre, register, prime, subsequent, theme, rheme, topic, and comment. To demonstrate this, it applies a Systemic Functional approach to Mark 2:1–12 and the book of Jude.
Keywords: Exegesis, Systemic Functional Linguistics, Prime, Subsequent, Theme, Rheme, Topic, Comment, Process Chains, Semantic Shift, Cohesion, Coherence, Linearity, Genre, Register
3.3
S. M. Kraeger
Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, NC, USA
Ever since the advent of the printing press, the Latin West and its lexicographic inheritors have used the first person singular indicative verb form (e.g., λύω) as the lemma of the Greek verb. There are historical reasons for this. These historical reasons for using the indicative form, however, are not coextensive with those by which modern lexicographers operate. This issue significantly overlaps with pedagogical concerns. The present article seeks to sketch a basic history of Greek verbal treatments toward a reevaluation of lexicographic and pedagogic practice regarding the ancient Greek verb.
Keywords: Lexicography, Pedagogy, Verb, Lemmatization
3.4
Stanley E. Porter
McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
This paper emphasizes the importance of both methodological and pedagogical dimensions of elementary Greek grammars, and then briefly surveys several different approaches found in current gram- mars. The paper takes what is called the usage-based approach, in which grammar is introduced roughly according to frequency of use so that students are reinforced in learning the grammar that appears most frequently in the Greek New Testament. Porter, Reed, and O’Donnell’s Fundamentals of New Testament Greek is used as the example of such an approach.
Keywords: Greek, grammar, elementary, usage-based approach, morphological approach, descriptivism, progressivism, immersion
Volume 2 (2013)

2.1
Paul L. Danove
Villanova University, Villanova, PA, USA
This article develops five features that describe the conceptualizations of the event of transference grammaticalized by New Testament verbs, and uses these features to formulate a model of the possible New Testament usages of transference. The discussion resolves all New Testament occurrences of verbs that designate transference into one of eighteen usages with distinct feature descriptions, and considers the usages of transference predicted by the feature model but not realized in the New Testament.
Keywords: feature, transference, semantic, syntactic, verbal usage




Volume 1 (2012)


1.1
Wally V. Cirafesi
McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, ON, Canada
This article argues that the construction ἔχειν πίστιν in Hellenistic Greek is a nominalized ideational metaphor that is semantically related to the finite verb πιστεύειν. Therefore, when the construction possesses a genitive modifier, the function of the genitive is disambiguated as denoting the object of πίστιν. This understanding of ἔχειν πίστιν + the genitive has significant implications for interpreting the construction in Mark 11:22, Jas 2:1, and Hippolytus‘s De Antichristo 61:26. (Article)
Keywords: πίστιϛ Χριστοῦ, Greek linguistics, nominalization, grammatical metaphor, Mark 11:22, Jas 2:1, Hippolytus
1.2
Gregory P. Fewster
McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, ON, Canada
Adapting Michael Hoey‘s lexical priming theory, this article provides a new rubric for the evaluation of intertextuality in the New Testament. This article tests the veracity of the claim that the lexeme ματαιότηϛ functions to invoke the language of Ecclesiastes. Romans 8 mirrors some of the language of Ecclesiastes, while Eph 4:17 has strong ties to Rom 8, creating an intertextual chain via the lexeme ματαιότηϛ. (Article)
Keywords: ματαιότηϛ, intertextuality, priming, Romans 8, 2 Peter 2, Ephesians 3
1.3
Hughson Ong
McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, ON, Canada
This article relates to the criteria of language authenticity in historical Jesus research and inquires into the lingua franca of Je- sus’ social environment. It demonstrates via sociolinguistic principles that Palestine was a multilingual society, establishes that various so- cial groups necessitate the use of language varieties, and addresses the issue of language choice—the occasions and reasons multilingual people use their native tongue over and against their second language. The objective is to show in four “I have come” sayings in the Synop- tics that, with high probability, Jesus’ internal language was Aramaic, and his public language was Greek.
Keywords: Historical Jesus, Greek language, sociolinguistics, Mark 2:17, Mark 10:45, Luke 12:49–51, Matt 5:17
1.4
Steven E. Runge
Logos Bible Software | Stellenbosh University, Stellenbosch, South Africa
This study applies the cognitive model of Chafe and Givón, and the information-structure model of Lambrecht as applied by Levinsohn and Runge to the Markan explanation of the Parable of the Sower (4:14–20). The primary objective is to identify and analyze other linguistic devices, besides demonstratives, which might clarify the apparent prominence given to the unfruitful scatterings in Mark’s account. This study provides the necessary framework for comparing Mark’s pragmatic weighting of saliency to that found in Matthew and Luke’s accounts in order to determine whether Mark’s version is con-sistent with or divergent from the other traditions.
Keywords: saliency, information structure, Mark 4:14–20, Matt 13:19–23, Luke 8:11–15, οὗτος, ἐκεῖνος

Lancé en janvier 2013, le projet Karnak (CNRS, USR 3172 - CFEETK / UMR 5140, Équipe ENiM - Programme « Investissement d’Avenir » ANR-11-LABX-0032-01 Labex ARCHIMEDE) a pour ambition d’organiser et de rendre accessible la documentation textuelle issue des temples de Karnak.
Ce travail est fondé sur un dépouillement exhaustif des documents et inscriptions de Karnak collationnées sur l’original. Chaque document reçoit un numéro d’identifiant unique (KIU : Karnak Identifiant Unique) lors de l’intégration à la base de données. Toute la richesse des archives du CFEETK (photographies, fac-similés, etc.) est exploitée par le projet Karnak, directement connecté à la base de données ArchéoGrid Karnak et à la bibliographie en ligne du CFEETK.
 
Étroitement lié au projet Dictionnaire Permanent de l’Égyptien Ancien (DPEA) développé par l’équipe d’égyptologie de l’UMR 5140 (CNRS-Université Montpellier III-Paul Valéry), le projet Karnak offrira un outil d’accès direct au riche corpus des inscriptions de Karnak (hiéroglyphiques, hiératiques et démotiques). Toutes les informations relatives à un document (KIU) seront accessibles à partir d’une notice unique. Celle-ci comportera l’édition typographique de l’inscription ainsi que sa translittération, l’ensemble des photographies, fac-similés et tout autre document d’archives associé.
Cet outil en ligne, hébergé sur les serveurs de l’IN2P3, autorisera ainsi des recherches directes dans le contenu des notices et dans les inscriptions hiéroglyphiques par le biais de la translittération. Il fournira en outre divers indices permettant des recherches multicritères (noms des divinités, épithètes divines, toponymes, ethniques et lieux de cultes, éléments de titulatures, anthroponymes, éléments prosopographiques et vocabulaire des inscriptions).

News from the Corpus of Mesopotamian Anti-witchcraft Rituals Project (CMAwR)
This year two volumes of Mesopotamian anti-witchcraft lore have appeared:
- Tzvi Abusch, The Magical Ceremony Maqlû (Ancient Magic and Divination 10), Leiden – Boston: Brill, 2016.
- Tzvi Abusch – Daniel Schwemer – Mikko Luukko – Greta Van Buylaere, Corpus of Mesopotamian Anti-witchcraft Rituals, vol. 2 (Ancient Magic and Divination 8/2), Leiden – Boston: Brill, 2016.

Respecting Brill’s moving wall, all the texts edited in these volumes will eventually be presented online within the framework of Oracc.

At present, CMAwRo (http://oracc.museum.upenn.edu/cmawro/corpus) comprises the texts edited in Tzvi Abusch - Daniel Schwemer, Corpus of Mesopotamian Anti-witchcraft Rituals, vol. 1 (Ancient Magic and Divination 8/1), Leiden - Boston: Brill, 2011. A pdf-file with corrections and additions to this volume can be found at: http://www.cmawro.altorientalistik.uni-wuerzburg.de/cmawr_corrections/. On this page you can also consult a list of additional manuscripts to previously edited texts. The addenda to texts from vol. 1 are being integrated online at Oracc’s CMAwRo.

In 2017, the texts of vol. 2 and their addenda will become available in the same place. The additional manuscripts to volumes 1 and 2 will be included in the final volume of Anti-witchcraft Rituals (CMAwR 3; AMD 8/3) that we are currently working on. It will be published in 2019.

At the moment, the Critical Catalogue of Mesopotamian Anti-witchcraft Rituals (CCMAwR; http://www.ccmawr.altorientalistik.uni-wuerzburg.de/ccmawr/index.php) encompasses information on the tablets published in CMAwR vol. 1 and 2 and in Tzvi Abusch’s Maqlû. Especially worth noting is the recent online prepublication of Daniel Schwemer’s hand-copies of most of the Maqlû manuscripts as part of the Critical Catalogue.

THV (Thesaurus Herculanensium Voluminum)  (new-beta_01)
Il progetto THV (Thesaurus Herculanensium Voluminum) è nato con lo scopo di creare uno strumento informatico per la ricerca sui testi custoditi nei papiri greci ercolanesi.

Sarà possibile effettuare ricerche di parole o parte di esse per opera, per autore o su tutto il corpus che verrà, periodicamente, arricchito e aggiornato. Per gli studiosi, inoltre, sarà possibile intervenire direttamente sui testi aggiungendo le nuove letture.
Ogni volta che saranno disponibili nuovi testi da consultare verrà data notizia della immissione su questo stesso sito, sul sito del CISPE “Marcello Gigante” e nella Papy-List.

Testi immessi:
PHerc. 182, 1005, 1027, 1065, 1507 sono a cura di Matilde Fiorillo
PHerc. 1055, 1251, 1425, 1418, 1431 (coll.1-10), 1021 sono a cura di Antonio Parisi
PHerc. 336/1150 è a cura di Mariacristina Fimiani
Il progetto è stato ideato e realizzato da Gianluca Del Mastro col sostegno del Centro Internazionale per lo studio dei Papiri Ercolanesi "Marcello Gigante" a cui si deve il finanziamento del software.
L'immissione dei dati è curata e finanaziata dal CISPE in collaborazione con la cattedra di Filologia Classica I dell'Università di Würzburg
Realizzazione del software a cura di ARCA di Luciano Fattore e Luca Pelella
Direzione immissione testi: Gianluca Del Mastro (Napoli) e Holger Essler (Würzburg)
Revisione e verifica dei dati: Gianluca Del Mastro e Antonio Parisi (Napoli); Holger Essler (Würzburg)

Les Mélanges de l’École française de Rome – Antiquité (MEFRA)
ISSN électronique: 1724-2134 
Créée en 1881 sous le titre de Mélanges d’histoire et d’archéologie, la revue Mélanges de l’École française de Rome est subdivisée depuis 1989 en trois séries (Antiquité ; Moyen Âge ; Italie et Méditerranée) publiées chacune à raison de deux fascicules annuels. Les Mélanges de l’École française de Rome – Antiquité (MEFRA) publient des articles portant sur l’histoire, la culture et l’archéologie des mondes anciens en Méditerranée, en particulier en Italie, en Afrique du Nord et dans les Balkans, mais portant également sur les interactions entre cet espace et le reste du monde antique. Ils publient aussi des dossiers thématiques en lien avec les fouilles et les programmes scientifiques de l’EFR, et plus généralement des études relevant de diverses disciplines (histoire, archéologie, archéométrie, épigraphie, philologie, droit etc.), de la Préhistoire à la fin de l’Antiquité. Les articles sont publiés en français et dans les diverses langues européennes, avec des résumés dans la langue de l’article et en anglais.

The Orion Center Newsletter
The Orion Center for the Study of the Dead Sea Scrolls and Associated Literature
The Center aims to stimulate and foster research on the Scrolls, particularly the great task of integrating the new information gained from the Scrolls into the body of knowledge about Jewish history and religion in the Second Temple period. Such integration will affect areas like biblical studies, Jewish literature and thought of the Second Temple Period, earliest Christianity and the New Testament, the study of early rabbinic Judaism, and more.

Online Catalogue of the Listed Archaeological Sites and Monuments of Greece

 [First posted in AWOL 26 February 2012, updated 27 July 2016]

Ongoing Catalogue of the Listed Archaeological Sites and Monuments of Greece

The Ongoing Catalogue of the Listed Archaeological Sites and Monuments of Greece is compiled and published since 1993 by the Directorate of the National Archive of Monuments of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Part of the greater project for the creation of an all-inclusive National Inventory of Monuments, it is a codification of all the official acts by which archaeological sites and monuments of the country have been designated and listed as such in the Government Gazette since 1921. Only immoveable monuments, archaeological sites and historic places that required a specific legal act of designation, demarcation and protection are included, as the Greek Law (3028/2002 “On the protection of antiquities and cultural heritage in general”) places all monuments and sites dating before 1830 under the protective auspices of the State automatically and without further legislative procedures. From its original printed form (more than 120 volumes), the Ongoing Catalogue has now developed into a modern digital database updated regularly and accessible over the Internet at http://listedmonuments.culture.gr. The database holds more than 10.000 entries related to over 18.000 sites and monuments designated by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Visitors of the Ongoing Catalogue’s web site can search (in Greek) specific acts of designation, monuments or sites by name, geographical location, and state of ownership or administrative authority. Free keyword search is also available. All content is intended merely for informational purposes; only the original statutes published in the corresponding Issues of the Government Gazette have legal value.

Tycho. Revista de iniciación en la investigación del teatro clásico y grecolatino y su tradición
ISSN: 2340-6682
http://pages.uv.es/tycho/cas/imgcabecera.jpg
Tycho es una publicación con una periodicidad anual que desde el marco amplio de las ciencias de la Antigüedad Clásica tiene como objetivo dar apoyo y aliento a los estudiantes en las fases finales de las enseñanzas conducentes a los títulos de Grado y de Máster, que se ocupen del teatro clásico griego y latino así como de su pervivencia en la tradición occidental. 

Con este fin publica artículos resultado de la revisión y reelaboración de trabajos realizados en los programas de grado y postgrado, en los puntos de inflexión de los procesos de formación académica e investigadora en los que se cierra un periodo formativo y se inicia otro, fundamentalmente Trabajos Final de Grado y Trabajos Final de Máster. 

Impulsada por el GRATUV (Grup de Recerca i Acció Teatral de la Universitat de València), Tycho surge como una plataforma que dé visibilidad a los jóvenes postgraduados y les sirva de acicate para adentrarse en el complejo mundo de la investigación, en la esperanza de que sea un estímulo para la realización de Trabajos Final de Grado y Trabajos Final de Máster en el ámbito del teatro grecolatino y la tradición clásica basada en él. 

Creemos, además, que esta publicación puede ser de gran ayuda a los estudiantes en sus primeras etapas en la medida en que les aporta información útil presentada de un modo especialmente accesible para ellos, en un discurso y un lenguaje que les es más cercano.

The new IxTheo remains a free and open access service to the worldwide scholarly community. The editors of the IxTheo are the Universitätsbibliothek Tübingen (library of the university of Tübingen) as well as the Evangelisch-Theologische Fakultät Tübingen (the protestant faculty of theology of the university of Tübingen) and the Katholisch-Theologische Fakultät Tübingen (the catholic faculty of theology of the same university).

We apologize in advance for any errors which might come up at this early stage of development. We wish you an enjoyable experience as you explore the new IxTheo and we would be glad to get your feedback!

New Open Access Journal: The Journal of Ancient Egyptian Architecture

0

The Journal of Ancient Egyptian Architecture
The Journal of Ancient Egyptian Architecture is a scientific, open access and annual periodical. Its purpose is to promote the publication of research devoted to Ancient Egyptian architecture (domestic, civil, military, ritual/religious and funerary), from the Predynastic Period to the Roman imperial era, whatever the modern geographical context (Egypt, Sudan, Near East, etc). The subject scope includes everything relating to construction, regardless of its original importance or purpose.

The journal publishes fieldwork reports and studies undertaken in the Egyptological tradition, including discussions of epigraphy and iconography, but also work that utilizes specific skills such as structural and materials sciences, or modern investigative techniques. In this way, JAEA seeks to encourage the development of detailed technical descriptions, and deeply theorized understanding (of architectural symbolism, propaganda, climatic and geological influences, etc.). This interdisciplinary approach will help connect adjacent areas of expertise which, alone, could not reflect the richness and complexity of the Ancient Egyptian built heritage.

The periodical welcomes any study that meets any one of these goals, only on the condition that the formatting and content of articles are subject to JAEA scientific publication requirements.

The use of the ‘ceremonial’ cubit rod as a measuring tool. An explanation

Fr. Monnier, J.-P. Petit & Chr. Tardy

This article deals with data inscribed on Ancient Egyptian cubit rods, and more specifically on the ceremonial cubit rods. Following a description of their technical and symbolic aspects, the paper reveals a property of the fine subdivisions engraved on the graduated part of these objects, and demonstrates that they could have allowed the cubits to be used as very accurate measuring rulers for architectural drawings and craft works.
