Goodspeed Manuscript Collection, University of Chicago Library

 [First poseted in AWOL 15 March 2013, updated 29 March 2016]

Goodspeed Manuscript Collection
The Edgar J. Goodspeed Manuscript Collection comprises 68 early Greek, Syriac, Ethiopic, Armenian, Arabic, and Latin manuscripts ranging in date from the 5th to the 19th centuries. The acquisition of these hitherto unknown manuscripts was spearheaded by Edgar J. Goodspeed in the first half of the twentieth century in order to support new scholarship in the humanities.

With support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services National Leadership Grants for Libraries - Building Digital Resources program, the University of Chicago Library is creating a unique digital resource based on this collection. All 68 New Testament manuscripts and an additional 114 papyri fragments will be digitized in their entirety and presented with high-quality zoomable images through an interface that supports browsing within individual manuscripts and across the collection. The Goodspeed Manuscript Collection Project continues the scholarly tradition of the Goodspeed Collection itself and will support new types of research and teaching made possible by digital technologies.

Sappho’s Poems Online

[First posted in AWOL 15 July 2011, updates 29 October 2016]

Sappho’s Poems
Sean B. Palmer
This is an attempt to collect Sappho's entire work together in one page — with Greek originals, succinct translations, and commentary.
[Portrait of Sappho]
When I first searched for Sappho's poems on the web, I found that most sites used out-of-date translations and numberings, with no original Greek. I wanted a complete work to peruse at leisure, with annotations and explanations throughout.
Whilst this page is still far from acheiving the goal of being a complete and readable edition of Sappho, it's still hopefully quite useful.
If you're new to Sappho, it's worth reading Wikipedia's introduction to her before starting on the poems. There's an awful lot of misinformation out there, so getting a good feel for the biographical and textual issues before you start on the poems will probably help you to enjoy them more.

Portraits du Fayoum

[First posted in AWOL 6 December 2013, updated 30 October 2016]

Portraits du Fayoum
Peints sur des plaquettes de bois précieux ou sur de la toile de lin, les portraits du Fayoum sont datés de la période romaine: du Ier au IVe siècle ap. J.-C.

Il en existe quelques milliers conservés dans les musées depuis que W. M. Flinders Petrie découvrit en mars 1888"un immense cimetière d'époque romaine avec des chambres tombales en brique contenant encore les corps de leurs propriétaires". L'émotion le saisit lorsqu'il aperçoit, encore fixé sur sa momie, le premier portrait, "une jeune fille magnifiquement dessinée, dans de douces teintes grises.
 La majorité des portraits funéraires présentent les visages grandeur nature. Ils doivent assurer au défunt un visage dans l'au-delà identique à celui de sa vie sur terre. Ils sont très expressifs, même après 2000 ans d'oubli.

Open Access Monograph Series: Internet Archaeology E-Monograph Series

Internet Archaeology E-Monograph Series
Internet Archaeology is a journal but some articles are monograph length and they may contain 100s of images or link to or integrate large sets of data. These e-monographs have been brought together in one place to form an E-Monograph series. This is not a separate digital publication (all remain listed as articles in their respective issues) but our aim is to showcase and highlight these particularly large bodies of work and to remind potential authors of the publishing opportunities available via Internet Archaeology.

ΛΟΓΕΙΟΝ - Logeion

 [First posted in AWOL 7 May 2012, updated 30 October 2016]

ΛΟΓΕΙΟΝ - Logeion
  • Logeion (literally, a place for words; in particular, a speaker's platform, or an archive) was developed after the example of dvlf.uchicago.edu, to provide simultaneous lookup of entries in the many reference works that make up the Perseus Classical collection. As always, we are grateful for the Perseus Project's generosity in sharing their data. None of this would be possible without their commitment to open access. To improve the chronological range for which the dictionaries are useful, we have added DuCange (see further updates below!), and to enhance this site as both a research and a pedagogical tool, we add information based on corpus data in the right side bar, as well as references to chapters in standard textbooks. More such 'widgets' will be added over time, along with, we hope, still more dictionaries.
  • Update January 2016: We are delighted to announce the advent of the Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources in Logeion. Many thanks to the British Academy (specifically, its Projects committee and its DMLBS committee), and in particular to the editor of DMLBS, Richard Ashdowne, for making this happen. We are thrilled to add another newly-released resource on the Latin side. Academic users: please do urge your libraries to purchase print copies of DMLBS (and DGE!), if they have not yet done so.
  • Many thanks to Matt Shanahan, Josh Day, and XSLT wizard Alex Lee for their help in bringing DMLBS to Logeion.
  • The Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources is the work of a century-long British Academy project, based first in London and then at the University of Oxford, that ran from 1913 to the completion of the printed dictionary in 2013. The DMLBS has been based wholly on original research and it documents the vocabulary of Latin in medieval Britain from the sixth to the sixteenth centuries. The DMLBS is a copyright work and the text appears on the Logeion site under licence from the British Academy, to whom we express our thanks. Users will find the following resources at the DMLBS project website helpful: A user's guide to the dictionary, the bibliography and notes to the bibliography, and guidelines for citing DMLBS.
  • Hellenists also have reason to rejoice: The Woordenboek Grieks/Nederlands, a Dutch project in progress, has made its finished letter ranges available to us. We thank the editors-in-chief, Ineke Sluiter, Albert Rijksbaron, and Ton Kessels, and their project coordinator, Lucien van Beek.A full roster of the team of writers and editors, and further information about the project, can be found on its website. At Logeion we believe that all users stand to benefit from up-to-date Greek dictionaries such as DGE and Grieks/Nederlands, regardless of their mother tongue. This is the first dictionary that Walt Shandruk has handled for Logeion; and while it takes skill to adapt third-party data, Walt has dealt with that but also confronted third-party code - with aplomb. Many thanks.
  • In other news, BWL, which is derived from a useful Dutch resource for intermediate Latin students, and illustrates important constructions and idiomatic usages of the most frequent Latin words, now features translations for its example sentences. This was a long-time desideratum, and we thank Rebekah Spearman for doing the last push that this project needed. She, however, cannot be held responsible for all the thousands of translated sentences! Please send your comments our way if you encounter problems. The other existing dictionaries, too, have seen the usual additional cleanup of infelicities in the original data entry process. Many thanks to all users who pointed out errors. If you find more, please report them: we are grateful for your assistance in incrementally improving this resource.
  • Update January 2015: We are grateful to Philip Peek of Bowling Green State University for making available his file with vocabulary for Chase & Phillips.
  • Update August 2014: In addition to the usual editing of existing dictionaries and morphology (keep reporting typos to us, please!), we are delighted to add a first author-specific lexicon on the Latin side, thanks to efforts at Dickinson College. Users will now encounter Frieze-Dennison's lexicon to Vergil's Aeneid for relevant entries. Many thanks to Christopher Francese and the DCC 'crew'! On another note, Logeion and the Logeion app got a mention in the New York Times, which we are thrilled about. We are, as always, grateful to Josh, Matt & Josh for developing this site and the app, and to the College of the University of Chicago for its support and its 'ambidextrous' undergrads, who know their way around Python and XML as well as around Greek and Latin.
  • Update December 2013: We are delighted to announce that we are adding the premier dictionary for Ancient Greek, the Diccionario Griego-Español (DGE), to Logeion. Both for entries from DGE and from DuCange, we will include a link to these dictionaries' home sites for every entry we display. As we work on displaying these entries better, we recommend (also) visiting the home sites, which look positively elegant. This update also brings the Latin-Dutch dictionary, LaNe, up to date with the printed 6th edition, which will be coming out soon.
  • Update October 2013: Logeion is now available as an app for iOS, so that you can consult it even without a working internet connection. Find the Logeion app in Apple's app store.
  • Update January 2012: We have now added a Latin-Dutch dictionary to the collection: The Woordenboek Latijn/Nederlands. One notable feature of this dictionary, for those who do not speak Dutch, is that a lot of attention has been paid to ensure accuracy of vowel length for the lexical entries. For further information see below.

      Open Access Journal: Cuneiform Digital Library Bulletin

      [First posted in AWOL 31 August 2009.  Most recently updated 1 November 2016]

      Cuneiform Digital Library Bulletin
      ISSN: 1540-8760
      The Cuneiform Digital Library Bulletin is an electronic journal constituted in conjunction with the organization and work of the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative to afford contributors to that effort the opportunity to make known to an international community the results of their research into topics related to those of the CDLI.
      The CDLB is a refereed e-journal for Assyriology and is conceived as a sister publication of the Cuneiform Digital Library Journal. While the latter journal seeks substantive contributions dealing with the major themes of the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative, that is, with text analyses of 4th and 3rd millennium documents (incorporating text, photographs, data, drawings, interpretations), early language, writing, paleography, administrative history, mathematics, metrology, and the technology of modern cuneiform editing are welcome, articles in the Bulletin should be short notes of at most five pages that deal with specific topics, collations, etc., and do not attempt to offer synthetic treatments of complex subjects.

      Open Access Journal: Hélade

      [First posted in AWOL  3 November 2009. Updated 1 November 2016]

      ISSN: 1518-2541
      Héladeé uma publicação eletrônica semestral voltada para os estudos da Antiguidade Ocidental e Oriental. Fundada em 2000, época em que a maioria dos periódicos especializados adotava o suporte impresso, a revista se propunha a difundir as pesquisas acadêmicas de especialistas em Antiguidade exclusivamente através da internet. Após um período de inatividade, Hélade retorna em uma nova série, sob a responsabilidade do Núcleo de Estudos de Representações e de Imagens da Antiguidade (NEREIDA), vinculado ao Departamento de História e ao Programa de Pós-graduação em História (PPGH) da Universidade Federal Fluminense.
      Nesta nova etapa, mantivemos a proposta original de reunir debates interdisciplinares com especialistas das áreas de História, Arqueologia, Antropologia, Filosofia e Filologia. Admite-se como norte a construção de um espaço de divulgação do saber acadêmico pautado pela isonomia, pelo respeito à diversidade teórico-metodológica e pela valorização de novos objetos e temas de pesquisa. Nossa proposta é ampliar o diálogo, criando um espaço que reúna pesquisadores brasileiros e estrangeiros, ultrapassando fronteiras. Mais do que divulgar novas pesquisas, desejamos buscar a integração de interessados no estudo da Antiguidade nessas diversas áreas, fomentando novos debates.

      Estas edições reproduzem os artigos publicados na primeira série da Revista Hélade. Originalmente, a maioria dos artigos estava disponível no corpo do antigo site, em formato HTML. Como essa prática editorial caiu em desuso, iniciamos um movimento de reedição tanto para o resgate da memória do periódico quanto para sua adequação ao formato atualmente praticado. Observa-se, contudo, que os trabalhos foram reproduzidos sem qualquer intervenção em termos de conteúdo, permanecendo, desta forma, regidos pela norma ortográfica então vigente e pelas perspectivas dos autores à época da redação. Também mantivemos as informações pessoais inalteradas, a despeito de eventuais mudanças de titulação ou filiação institucional que possam ter ocorrido ao longo desses anos. O mesmo se aplica às informações relativas aos conselhos, indicados em cada edição tal como foram compostos à época.
