The Greek Bible in Byzantine Judaism

The Greek Bible in Byzantine Judaism
http://gbbj.org/_a/i/decalLeft_bg.jpg 
The story of the Jewish transmission of Greek Bible versions has yet to be told. While it is recognised that the books of the Hebrew Bible were originally translated into Greek in Greco-Roman antiquity by Jews for Jews, it is generally supposed that at some early point Jews gave up using the translations, along with the use of the Greek language generally, and they were preserved and used only in the Christian Church. However, materials have come to light, some very recently, that make it plain that some Jews continued to use the Greek language throughout the Middle Ages, and that, while the Hebrew Bible came to play a central part in their religious and cultural life, they also knew the Bible in Greek.

The aim of the Greek Bible in Byzantine Judaism project is to gather evidence for the use of Greek Bible translations by Jews in the Middle Ages, and to make these texts available to scholars as a corpus, together with the information necessary for an appreciation of their historical background, meaning and exegetical implications.

The Latin New Testament: A Guide to its Early History, Texts, and Manuscripts
H. A. G. Houghton
ISBN: 9780198744733
Cover for   The Latin New Testament        
This is an open access title available under the terms of a CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 licence. It is free to read at Oxford Scholarship Online and offered as a free PDF download from OUP and selected open access locations.

Latin is the language in which the New Testament was copied, read, and studied for over a millennium. The remains of the initial 'Old Latin' version preserve important testimony for early forms of text and the way in which the Bible was understood by the first translators. Successive revisions resulted in a standard version subsequently known as the Vulgate which, along with the creation of influential commentaries by scholars such as Jerome and Augustine, shaped theology and exegesis for many centuries. Latin gospel books and other New Testament manuscripts illustrate the continuous tradition of Christian book culture, from the late antique codices of Roman North Africa and Italy to the glorious creations of Northumbrian scriptoria, the pandects of the Carolingian era, eleventh-century Giant Bibles, and the Paris Bibles associated with the rise of the university.

In The Latin New Testament, H.A.G. Houghton provides a comprehensive introduction to the history and development of the Latin New Testament. Drawing on major editions and recent advances in scholarship, he offers a new synthesis which brings together evidence from Christian authors and biblical manuscripts from earliest times to the late Middle Ages. All manuscripts identified as containing Old Latin evidence for the New Testament are described in a catalogue, along with those featured in the two principal modern editions of the Vulgate. A user's guide is provided for these editions and the other key scholarly tools for studying the Latin New Testament.

Fotografien von Palästina, aufgenommen 1917/1918 durch die bayerische Fliegerabteilung 304

Eine Zusammenarbeit zwischen den deutschen Armeen und den Streitkräften des Osmanischen Reiches hatte bereits in den 80er Jahren des 19. Jahrhunderts eingesetzt. Im Ersten Weltkrieg wurde diese Kooperation intensiviert. Nicht nur einzelne Offiziere, sondern umfangreiche deutsche Truppen wurden zur Unterstützung der türkischen Armee in das Osmanische Reich verlegt, das damals neben der heutigen Türkei auch Syrien, den Libanon, den Irak, Palästina, Jordanien und beide Küstenbereiche des heutigen Saudi-Arabien umfasste.

Diese Deutschen kämpften nicht nur an den Dardanellen mit, sondern sie standen auch in Bagdad den Briten gegenüber und waren im heutigen Syrien und Palästina eingesetzt. Zur Unterstützung der osmanisch-türkischen Bodentruppen waren dort deutsche Fliegerabteilungen stationiert. Zuerst kam eine preußische Fliegerabteilung. Bis zum 1. November 1917 wurde auch die bayerische Fliegerabteilung 304b [= bayerisch] dorthin verlagert, die bis September 1918 an den Kämpfen beteiligt war.

Coming Back to Life: The Permeability of Past and Present, Mortality and Immortality, Death and Life in the Ancient Mediterranean

Tappenden, Frederick. S., and Carly Daniel-Hughes, eds. 2017. Coming Back to Life: The Permeability of Past and Present, Mortality and Immortality, Death and Life in the Ancient Mediterranean. Editorial assistance from Bradley N. Rice. Montreal, QC: McGill University Library. 
http://comingbacktolife.mcgill.ca/issue/view/2017/showToc
The lines between death and life were neither fixed nor finite to the peoples of the ancient Mediterranean. For most, death was a passageway into a new and uncertain existence. The dead were not so much extinguished as understood to be elsewhere, and many perceived the deceased to continue to exercise agency among the living. Even for those more skeptical of an afterlife, notions of coming back to life provided frameworks in which to conceptualize the on-going social, political, and cultural influence of the past. This collection of essays examines how notions of coming back to life shape practices and ideals throughout the ancient Mediterranean. All contributors focus on the common theme of coming back to life as a discursive and descriptive space in which antique peoples construct, maintain, and negotiate the porous boundaries between past and present, mortality and immortality, death and life.

Claremont Coptic Encyclopedia
http://ccdl.libraries.claremont.edu/ui/custom/default/collection/default/images/header-mtn-text_CCDL-hosted.jpg
The Coptic civilization is one of the most ancient civilizations still in existence, and has vibrant manifestations in Egypt and around the world. Various aspects of Western civilization have their roots in, or are influenced by Coptic civilization and Egyptian Christianity.

An invaluable reference tool for Coptic Studies is The Coptic Encyclopedia (Aziz S. Atiya, ed. NY: Macmillan, 1991). This monumental work, with approximately 2800 entries written by 215 scholars, covers treasures of Coptic language and literature; Copto-Arabic literature; Coptic art, architecture, archaeology, history, music, liturgy, theology, spirituality, monasticism; and biblical, apocryphal, social, and legal texts. The encyclopedia was the fruit of years of effort on the part of its Editor-in-Chief, Aziz S. Atiya (1898-1988, Distinguished Professor of History at the University of Utah), and its Principal Investigator, Lola Atiya (1917-2002, Doctor of Humane Letters). Donations by the Coptic communities in the Diaspora, a matching grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities from 1979 to 1990, along with numerous other sources, made the project possible.

In 2009 the Claremont Graduate University (CGU) acquired the right to develop an updated and continuously expanding and evolving web-based version of The Coptic Encyclopedia. Since then, the Claremont Coptic Encyclopedia (CCE) has been gradually posting the articles of the 1991 Coptic Encyclopedia and will be continuously adding updates and new topics from the growing body of scholarship in Coptic studies at worldwide institutions. Again, the participation of the Coptic community in envisioning and funding this project was instrumental in the project coming to fruition. The partnership of CGU and the Coptic community is one of the missions of the Council for Coptic Studies at the CGU School of Arts and Humanities.

The progress of the CCE project depends on the strength and continuity of Coptic Studies at CGU, the participation of scholars worldwide, and the availability of financial resources. It is a work in progress; please check back or subscribe to the RSS to see updates.

The Syrian Digital Library of Cuneiform (SDLC) project represents the collaborative efforts of a Syrian and international team of researchers to prepare an interactive Arabic / English / French presentation of a rich and indigenous cuneiform tradition dating back five millennia.

The cuneiform tablets collections, kept mainly in the museums of Damascus, Aleppo, Deir ez-Zor, Raqqa, and Idlib, originate from close to 40 different archaeological sites. Based on an integrated catalogue, those texts which have already been published will be the subject of an electronic edition, consisting of digital images and transliterations, presented via the web-pages of the SDLC. This presentation will be directly linked to the international project CDLI, making the texts part of an ever growing corpus of cuneiform texts freely available online, and benefitting from the powerful search tools of that project.

The SDLC website will facilitate the establishment of new line of communication among members of an international community that is growing increasingly aware of the contributions of ancient Syria to modern culture.

Archaeological Reconnaissance of Uninvestigated Remains of Agriculture (AROURA)
http://www.umbc.edu/aroura/images/header01.jpg
Archaeological Reconnaissance of Uninvestigated Remains of Agriculture (AROURA) is an archaeological geophysics and surface survey of the plain around the 13th century BCE fortress of Glas, Boiotia, central mainland Greece, beginning in October 2010 and lasting until November 2012. It aims to detail the Mycenaean hydraulic, drainage, and land-improvement works around the fortress, and to search for traces of the expected extensive agricultural system they served. AROURA is an official collaboration between the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), and the 9th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities (IX EPCA) of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports, based in Thebes, Dr. M.F. Lane (UMBC) and Dr. A. Charami (IX EPCA) co-directors.
Αρχαιολογικός Εντοπισμός Ανεξερεύνητων Καταλοίπων Καλλιέργειας (αγγλική συντομογραφία AROURA) είναι μία γεωφυσική διασκόπηση και έρευνα επιφάνειας του περιβάλλοντος χώρου του οχυρού του 13ου αιώνα π.Χ. στο Γλα Βοιωτίας, από τον Οκτώβριο 2010 έως το Νοέμβριο 2012. Το πρόγραμμα AROURA σκοπεύει να μελετήσει λεπτομερώς το υδραυλικό, αποξηραντικό και εγγειοβελτιωτικό σύστημα γύρω από το οχυρό καθώς και τα κατάλοιπα των εκτεταμένων μυκηναϊκών αγροκτημάτων που εξυπηρετούσαν. Το πρόγραμμα AROURA αποτελεί επίσημη συνεργασία του Πανεπιστήμιο Μαίρυλαντ (Κομητείας Βαλτιμώρης) με τη Θ'Εφορεία Προϊστορικών και Κλασικών Αρχαιοτήτων του Υπουργείου Πολιτισμού και Αθλητισμού, με έδρα τη Θήβα, υπό τη διεύθυνση του κυρίου Μ.Φ. Λέιν και της κυρίας Α. Χαραμή, προϊσταμένης της εφορείας.

Open Access Monograph Series: The Archaeology of Fazzan

The Archaeology of Fazzan
Society for Libyan Studies
The Archaeology of Fazzan is a major series of reports on the archaeology and history of Libya’s southwest desert region. The key element of the story of Fazzan is the existence here of an early Libyan civilisation, the Garamantes, and the publication of these volumes puts into the public domain a rich dossier of information about their antecedents and descendants in this desert environment.
This was a singularly important moment in Libya’s cultural history, with resonances also in Sub-Saharan Africa. There is great interest in the published volumes from specialists in Saharan, Sub-Saharan and Mediterranean archaeology and history, as for the first time we can see in detail the effect of early Trans-Saharan links.
Please choose which titles you wish to access from the list below. More titles will be added in due course.

Polskie Wykopaliska Archeologiczne w Ptolemais (Libia)
Since 2001 the Institute of Archaeology of the Warsaw University has conducted excavations in Ptolemais, an important antique city in Cyrenaica (Libya). Apart from research works on the new urban plan of Ptolemais (officially established in the III rd. c. B.C.), excavation works are carried out in vicinity of the famous Palazzo delle Colonne. The main goal of this project is to obtain new information concerning the architecture of one insula (quarter), thus broadening our knowledge about the living conditions of the inhabitants of the city from the Hellenistic period to the appearance of the Arabs in the mid VII th, c. A.D. At present, we have uncovered one, very well preserved house dated to the III rd. c. A.D. with a rich decoration of its central, residential part, concentrated round a four column peristyle.

Egyptology has as its object of study the history, practices, and conceptual categories of a culture that was remarkably prolific in terms of written texts, art, architecture, and other forms of material culture. The knowledge of Egyptologists, archaeologists, linguists, geologists, and all other professionals who are involved in research related to Ancient Egypt reflect the interdisciplinary approach that is needed to make sense of such a wealth of information. The peer-reviewed articles of the UEE are written by the world's leading scholars.
In the coming decade we will continue to build the content of the UEE, while a separate web site, the UEE Full Version, will be available starting in 2010. The full version will have enhanced searches, such as a map-search functionality, alphabetical and subject browsing, in-text links, explanations of terminology for non-professionals, an image archive, and Virtual Reality reconstructions. In addition, a Data-Access Level is under development, which links articles with the results of original research. Information on the development of the UEE Full Version can be found at http://www.uee.ucla.edu.

Dodona Online(DOL): A New Collection and Edition of the lamellae of the Oracle at Dodona
AMI 1724_bis.jpg
Dodona Online (DOL) is a project whose main aim is to edit online all the oracular questions from Dodona. It will first include the 4216 new lamellae from the Evangelidis’ excavations, whose edition, which was long prepared by late researchers I. Vokotopoulou, S. Dakaris and A.-Ph. Christidis, was eventually published in 2013, thanks to the devoted efforts of S. Tselikas. Montreal is the epicentre of the project, but the team itself is scattered all over the world, mainly in Europe. It gathers the most eminent scholars of the Dodonaean field, Greek epigraphy, and Greek religion. Dodona online will eventually be hosted by the Perseus Digital Library, which will allow a worldwide, quick, free, and open access to the material.

MYCENAEAN NORTHEASTERN KOPAÏS (MYNEKO): TEST PROGRAM, 2016–2017
[Aghios Ioannis Panorama]
The Mycenaean Northeastern Kopaïs (MYNEKO) Test Program is an ongoing archaeological collaboration between Prof. Michael F. Lane of the University of Maryland Baltimore County (U.M.B.C.) and Dr. Elena Kountouri, Director of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports (ΥΠΠΟΑ), co-principal ex officio. The aim of the project is to join together and further the aims of the co-principals’ respective prior separate fieldwork programs, Dr. Kountouri’s of the nature and character of the Late Helladic (L.H.) drainage system in the northern Kopaic Basin (Kopaïs) and Dr. Lane’s of the evidence of a contemporary system of irrigated fields connected with the larger hydraulic mechanisms that are subject of his partner’s investigations. MYENKO began in 2016 and is to finish in 2017, serving as a bridge from prior research to a more comprehensive landscape archaeology project.

Update: New Syriac Resources from Syri.ac

New Syriac Resources from Syri.ac
Postby Secret Alias» Mon Apr 10, 2017 8:31 am
Dear colleagues,

We have two major announcements today regarding new work on http://syri.ac. The first is a new page on New Testament Apocrypha. The second is a new site-wide bibliographical system that links the pages and our site together as a whole.
——————

First, we are excited to introduce a new page at http://syri.ac devoted to the study of the New Testament Apocrypha which can be found at http://syri.ac/ntapocrypha This is a companion page to the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha page we announced several weeks ago. Hundreds of ancient documents have been have been classified over time under the rubric of 'New Testament Apocrypha' (or sometimes 'New Testament Pseudegpigrapha') — not even including the number of works found in the Nag Hammadi codices. These apocyrphal texts were produced over centuries and by diverse communities. The tenuous connections between them, as a genre or corpus, are either their attribution to apostlic authors or, in terms of content, the 'hidden' stories they reveal about Jesus, the Apostles, Mary, and other New Testement figures. These works, ranging from the 2nd century CE (Protoevangelium of James) to the Islamic period (Gospel of the 12 Apostles), represent both the inventiveness of late antique Christian writers and the popularity of such stories among their readers. Originally written for the most part in Greek or Latin, they were soon translated into Syriac, Armenian, Coptic, Georgian, etc., but many original compositions of Christian apocrypha, or variants on older stories, also originated in these languages. Later Syriac writers (such as Mor Jacob of Sarug among others) were not only familiar with the traditions found in these books, but the apocryphal stories inform the exegetical worldview of several different works in Syriac.

We based the page on the masterful research of M. Geerard, Clavis Apocryphorum Novi Testamenti (Turnhout: Brepols, 1992). The page provides information about all published resources on New Testament Apocrypha in Syriac, Arabic, and Garshuni. Many of the resources collected by Geerard are available in the public domain. Thus, we have expanded his work by giving hyperlinks directly to the pages of those resources which are publicly available.

We hope that this page will be a valuable resource for those seeking authoritative publications on NT Apocrypha in Syriac and Arabic. Furthermore, we hope that http://syri.ac can encourage new research on this rich literary tradition and foster fruitful dialogue between scholars working on Judaism, Biblical Studies, Quranic Studies, and the Syriac and Arabic literary traditions.
——————

Second, we have developed a site-wide Bibliography, which can be found at http://syri.ac/bibliography. We are steadily converting all of our pages to this new system. Eventually, all of the individual citations we make throughout the site will have a place in the the site-wide bibliography. The goal is that the user not only has access to important resources on individual pages, but now can also easily access the full bibliographic record for the same important resources. Each bibliographic entry is able to be recombinable in meaningful ways (e.g. the Works Cited list on the NT Apocrypha page). The site-wide bibliography is able to be searched, filtered, and sorted by multiple keywords. The user can, for example, collect all the entries of a given author (e.g. Paul Bedjan).

The pages that have been converted to the new system are fully Zotero-aware, as are the individual bibliographical entries in the site-wide bibliography. If you use Zotero, you can now easily “suck down” any of the references we cite into your own Zotero library. Each entry can also be downloaded as a BibTex, RIS, or MARC file type. Several pages already make use of the new bibliographical system: New Testament Apocrypha, Aphrahat, Bardaisan, Bible, Chronicles and Historiography, Councils and Canon Law, our new David bar Paulos page, Grammars, Hagiography, Historic Scholarship. As mentioned, soon all the pages on the site will make use of the new system and their citations will be added to the site-wide bibliography.

We think the new Bibliography offers a major new increase in functionality for users of the site. The Bibliography is not designed to replace the immense work done at the Comprehensive Bibliography on Syriac Christianity, but has been built to present all materials cited on syri.ac. As always, we have tried to preserve the immediacy of links to publicly available works available on Archive.org, which has been a hallmark of the site since the beginning.

If you have any questions of suggestions, please feel free to contact us.

All the best,
Morgan Reed
