Open Access Journal: Chicago House Bulletin

 [First posted in AWOL 28 December 2010. Updated 17 October 2016]

Chicago House Bulletin
The Epigraphic Survey based at Chicago House in Luxor, Egypt, is directed by W. Raymond Johnson, PhD, Research Associate (Associate Professor) NELC and Oriental Institute.
The mission of the Survey since its founding in 1924 has been to produce photographs and precise line drawings of the inscriptions and relief scenes on major temples and tombs at Luxor for publication. More recently the Survey has expanded its program to include conservation, restoration, and site management. In addition to the field director, the professional staff of the Survey normally includes three to four epigraphers, four to five artists, two photographers, an architect, a librarian, several conservators, stonemasons, and IT consultants. The epigraphers and artists include both graduate students and post-doctoral scholars who have received training in all aspects of Egyptology. The Epigraphic Survey is currently conducting its 90th archaeological field season.
Some issues of the Chicago House Bulletin originally appeared as a part of the Oriental Institute News & Notes:

Open Access Journal: Mètis. Anthropologie des mondes grecs anciens

[First posted in AWOL 16 October 2010. Updated 19 October 2016]

Mètis. Anthropologie des mondes grecs anciens
ISSN: 1105-2201
eISSN: 1791-7077 
Mètis est née d’une collaboration entre hellénistes grecs et français. Dans la perspective d’une anthropologie historique centrée sur l’antiquité grecque, elle s’est récemment élargie à l’étude des mondes anciens, en particulier grec et romain. Tout en intégrant les disciplines érudites (philologie, histoire, archéologie, épigraphie), elle s’applique à prendre en compte des apports des sciences sociales (ethnologie, sociologie, linguistique, psychologie, psychanalyse).

Proxeny Networks of the Ancient World (a database of proxeny networks of the Greek city-states)

Proxeny Networks of the Ancient World  (a database of proxeny networks of the Greek city-states)


PNAW is a database of evidence for a particular kind of social networking between Greek city-states in the Ancient Greek world, known as proxeny (Greek: proxenia). It enables this material to be used to visualise the highly-fragmented political geography of the ancient world during the Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic periods, and to get a sense of how densely and intensely interconnected were the states which made it up.


Before its unification under a Roman emperor, the ancient Mediterranean world constituted the most fragmented state system in recorded history. More than a thousand distinct Greek city-states (poleis), and many other kinds of actor, such as dynasts, federations, and kings, made up a vibrant and dynamic ecosystem of self-governing states. The interactions of these states were mediated through a highly developed system of institutions. Proxeny is the best attested of these institutions, and was probably the most widely used. It enabled cities to maintain substantial and often widespread networks that connected them with other cities.


Proxeny was an institution of interstate relations in the ancient Greek world. A city-state granted proxeny to the citizen of another community, the status of being their proxenos within that individual's home city. The role of the proxenos was to facilitate interaction between the two political communities, most often by performing services of different kinds for visiting citizens of the first state (termed here the 'granting city'). These services could take various forms - including hospitality, introductions to magistrates, prominent men, or merchants, and help negotiating local legal institutions in the case of contractual disputes. Collectively these services helped to enable citizens of the granting community in question to overcome the political fragmentation of this world and function, whether as official representatives of their own city, or as merchants, tradesmen, or even as tourists, in other communities where they did not have the privileged status of citizen. Proxeny networks, therefore, reflect and allow us to trace patterns of political, economic, and social interactions between city states, and to trace the horizons of different political communities.


PNAW presents an overview of our evidence for these relationships of proxeny in the ancient world, including those recorded in the literary sources as well as the more than two thousand texts inscribed on stone. It accompanies the recent study of this institution published by Oxford University Press, Proxeny and Polis and its purpose is to make this material available in an accessible format which can be corrected and updated as new evidence is published. It makes use of GIS mapping to enable the evidence of links between different communities which this data presents to be explored in an intuitive way. In order to make the search function useable, results are presented in a condensed view with further information available in the form of mouseover dialogue boxes. To illustrate the potential of the search and mapping functions of this database, here are some example searches:

Open Access Journal: Journal of the Jesus Movement in its Jewish Setting: from the first to the seventh century (JJMJS)

[First posted in AWOL 21 October 2014, updated 20 October 2016]

Journal of the Jesus Movement in its Jewish Setting: from the first to the seventh century (JJMJS)
ISSN: 2374-7862 (print)
ISSN: 2374-7870 (online)

JJMJS is a new interdisciplinary peer-reviewed online journal, published in cooperation with Eisenbrauns.

A rich variety of Jewish and Christian traditions and identities mutually shaped one another in the centuries-long course of Roman Late Antiquity. A no less rich variety of scholarly approaches – from the history of Christian Origins to that of the late empire, from archaeology to Dead Sea Scrolls, from Rabbinics to Patristics – has in recent years converged upon this period, the better to understand its religious and social dynamics. JJMJS seeks to facilitate and to encourage such scholarly investigations across disciplinary boundaries, and to make the results of cutting-edge research available to a worldwide audience.

JJMJS is free of charge with complete open access. The journal is published in cooperation with Eisenbrauns and will be available in hard copy, which can be ordered from Eisenbrauns

Newly Open Access Journal: Comité de Conservation des Monuments de l'Art Arabe

Comité de Conservation des Monuments de l'Art Arabe
Le projet ATHAR [de l’arabe traces ou empreintes, et par extension monuments ou antiquités] sur les monuments du Caire est issu d’un partenariat entre le laboratoire InVisu (USR 3103, CNRS/INHA), Persée (UMS 3602 Université de Lyon/CNRS/ENS de Lyon) et l’Institut français d’archéologie orientale (EPSCP). ATHAR met à disposition la totalité des procès-verbaux et des rapports du Comité de conservation des monuments de l’art arabe, instance créée en 1881 au Caire pour inventorier, décrire et restaurer les monuments islamiques puis coptes d’Égypte. Cet ensemble ne pouvait être trouvé jusqu’à présent qu’à l’état de collection incomplète dans les principales bibliothèques publiques européennes.
Sur le modèle des rapports de la Commission des monuments historiques en France, cette publication annuelle, rédigée en français, aujourd’hui éteinte et libre de droits, se compose de 41 volumes publiés au Caire entre 1882 et 1953, totalisant 8 000 pages et près de 800 planches (photographies, plans et dessins).
Pour l’historiographie des arts de l’Islam, l’histoire de la restauration ou de la patrimonialisation en Égypte, ce corpus constitue une source de premier plan en raison de son grand intérêt scientifique (nombre de monuments décrits, qualité des informations architecturales et historiques, documentation technique sur les chantiers de restauration, prosopographie des acteurs, archives photographiques, etc.), mais aussi de la disparition progressive de ces édifices au cours des XXe et XXIe siècles : sur les 800 monuments identifiés dès 1880, 300 n’existent plus de nos jours. Ce corpus rassemble parfois l’unique documentation encore subsistante sur des monuments disparus, très dégradés ou radicalement transformés. Par ses illustrations, il se trouve en relation avec les riches fonds de la photographie commerciale présente au Caire à partir de 1860, diffusée de façon croissante sur Gallica et Europeana.
Le traitement documentaire particulier de ce corpus, grâce notamment à un module d’encodage TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) que Persée a développé, et l’indexation des toponymes en liaison avec le référentiel Cairo Gazetteerétabli par InVisu, permet une exploitation fine des bulletins pour l’identification des monuments du Caire. Ces identifications permettent à leur tour de valoriser de nombreux fonds textuels ou iconographiques.

Mapping the Via Appia

The Via Appia, ‘Queen of Roads’, became a hallmark of the political and cultural presentation of the city of Rome as the centre of the then existing world, and is still seen as an iconic monument of ancient Rome. Since 2009 the department of Classical Archaeology of the Radboud University Nijmegen has started a field work project in close collaboration with the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome, named ‘Mapping the Via Appia’. The project aims at a thorough inventory and analysis of the Roman interventions in their suburban landscape, focusing on parts of the 5th and 6th mile of the road. The stretch starts where the modern Via di Erode Attico crosses the Via Appia antica and ends at the point where the Via di Casal Rotondo crosses the ancient road. Other partners are the Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences and the SPINlab of the VU University Amsterdam, and the Soprintendenza Speciale per I Beni Archeologici di Roma.

The wealth of archaeological monuments preserved both above and beneath ground level as well as the opulent documentary evidence in archives and digital resources (mainly photographs), make a very detailed multidisciplinary analysis of the history of the road and its surroundings possible. At the same time, this huge amount of wide-ranging data poses some methodological challenges and requires the development of new documentation and analysis strategies. The complex architectural design of several monuments, as well as the detailed archival records, have resulted in an archaeological and historical landscape which cannot be studied by only using established recording systems like regional field survey projects.


The Database of Byzantine Book Epigrams (DBBE)

The Database of Byzantine Book Epigrams (DBBE)
The Database of Byzantine Book Epigrams (DBBE) is an ongoing project that makes available textual and contextual data of book epigrams (or: metrical paratexts) from medieval Greek manuscripts (seventh to fifteenth century).
We define book epigrams as poems in books and on books: their subject is the very manuscript in which they are found. They record, react to, or motivate the production, the contents and the use of the book. Further explanation of this definition is to be found on the Help page.
Objectives of the database are to:
  • collect textual material that was hitherto dispersed over various publications, chiefly catalogues;
  • clarify the manuscript context of the epigrams;
  • provide ways to search the corpus and detect affinities between epigrams and manuscripts;
  • offer reliable editions that respect the uniqueness of each specific manuscript.
The user can access the database by searching or browsing through three categories in the menu above:
epigrams as they occur in one specific manuscript. The data collected here is mainly derived from descriptive catalogues as well as other related publications (such as articles, editions etc). In certain cases it is the result of manuscript consultation conducted by members of our team.
corrected versions of the poems, often regrouping several similar occurrences. This part of the database is still very provisional. The types are meant to evolve into a corpus of editions over the next years.
manuscript identifications are given according to city, library, name of the collection, shelf nr.: it basically follows the system of the Pinakes database.
A beta version of the database has been released on 1 September, 2015. Please, bear in mind that this version is still work in progress. All users are invited to send their feedback with corrections, suggestions etc. at: dbbe@ugent.be.
We are keen for DBBE to be used in the widest possible range of educational and research contexts. For information on how to cite or refer to DBBE, see the Help page.
