Database of Byzantine Glass Mosaic Tesserae

 The Composition of Byzantine Glass Mosaic Tesserae
 http://www.sussex.ac.uk/byzantine/mosaic/images/exonx3.jpg
Welcome to the database of sites and sources of Byzantine mosaic glass tesserae. Follow the links on the left to enter one of three databases:
  1. 'Structures' records buildings (4C-15C) where we have archaeological evidence (finds) of glass wall mosaics.
  2. 'Texts' contains records of primary Byzantine sources which mention mosaics (in development).
  3. 'References' is a bibliographical database of modern scientific publications about glass mosaics.
The databases can be searched or browsed for information and the method should be straight forward.

Notes:

  • We have not included structures for which there is only evidence of glass mosaics on floors.
  • The database does not contain records of mosaic icons.
  • Names: we have used mostly Byzantine names of places so Nicaea, not Iznik; Constantinople, not Istanbul. Building names are given in English, unless mostly known in the wider world in their original language (hence Rome, not Roma; Hagia Sophia, not Holy Wisdom).
  • Spelling: we have followed the spelling of the Oxford Dictionary of Byzantium. Hence: Demetrios, not Dimitrius; Photios, not Photius.
  • We have only included buildings that are no longer extant if the mosaics survive elsewhere (the only exception to this is the record for Odalar Camii).
  • 'Unknown' can designate that it really is unknown or that research of published data has not produce an answer yet
  • The structure database allows you to search for structures and mosaics between dates. Chose the early century in "Century of xxx 1' and the later or the same in 'Century of xxx 2'.
The databases have been designed and constructed by the University of Sussex Web Team in collaboration with Bente Bjornholt, the Leverhulme Network Facilitator. The Director of the Network Liz James and Bente wish to thank everyone in and associated with the Network who has contributed. If you have any questions or suggestions please contact the current researcher Wendy Watson: EWendywuwatson@aol.com, Bente: EB.K.Bjornholt@sussex.ac.uk or Liz: Ee.james@sussex.ac.uk.

Museum Object Lessons for the Digital Age Cover

About the book

Museum Object Lessons for the Digital Age explores the nature of digital objects in museums, asking us to question our assumptions about the material, social, and political foundations of digital practices. Through four wide-ranging chapters, each focused on a single object – a box, pen, effigy and cloak – this short, accessible book explores the legacies of earlier museum practices of collection, older forms of media (from dioramas to photography), and theories of how knowledge is produced in museums on a wide range of digital projects. Swooping from Ethnographic to Decorative Arts Collections, from the Google Art Project, to bespoke digital experiments, Haidy Geismar explores the object lessons contained in digital form and asks what they can tell us about both the past and the future.

About the author

Haidy Geismar is Reader in Anthropology at UCL where she directs the Digital Anthropology Masters Programme and Centre for Digital Anthropology. She is also the curator of the UCL Ethnography Collections. She has long term fieldwork experience in the South Pacific and within museums in the Pacific, North America and Europe Recent publications include Moving Images (2010), Treasured Possessions (2013), and The Routledge Cultural Property Reader(with Jane Anderson, 2017).

ISSN: 0308-2431
Pegasus is the Journal of the Department of Classics and Ancient History at the University of Exeter. It was established in 1964 and is currently edited by a board of postgraduates. The journal focuses on multifarious aspects of the ancient world, the Exeter Department of Classics and Ancient History, as well as the Classical World in Devon.
We aim to include a mixture of both the scholarly and the absurd (“Difficult to tell which is which”, an anonymous reader once commented). Regular features include pieces by staff and students, book reviews and interviews with people from the world of Classics, both within and outside the department. In addition, we welcome submissions from our readers. For alumni and former staff members, Pegasus is a great way of staying in touch with the department and keeping up with departmental news.

NEO: The Classics Students' Journal
NEO
​In March 2016, five Classics students at the University of Roehampton came together with the idea of creating a journal with the sole purpose of publishing the very best work produced by undergraduate and graduate students; NEO – The Classics Students' Journal was founded. 
A journal by students, for students. Our main objective here at NEO is to foster the academic progression of students and early career researchers. We only publish work of the highest creativity and scholarly quality so that we might provide a creditable avenue for the key first steps in an academic career. We also want to give our authors their first and necessary contact with the demanding standards of the professional academic world. We publish original graduate and undergraduate studies that may have arisen from university assessments or from papers presented at academic meetings and conferences. Our double peer-review system ensures the excellence of the papers contained within NEO and, by extent, the authors who succeed in being published with us. We believe that the opportunities created by this journal will encourage confidence, provide additional motivation for students to excel in their studies, and enable us to exhibit some of the outstanding and academically contributing work produced inside the university Classics classroom.

Most papyri are not found as individual items, but in groups, which are called "archives" by the papyrologists. Ideally such an archive is discovered by an archaeologist, who then describes in detail the order in which the texts were put down in antiquity (often in a jar or bundled in cloth). In fact, most papyri are found in clandestine excavations (though new finds such as those in Kellis, in the eastern oasis and in the Italian-French excavations at Tebtynis are better documented), and archives have to be reconstructed on the basis of the contents of the papyri and indications of a common purchase. A common find is not enough to make an archive, and therefore a rubbish heap, a dump of papyri, papyri found in the same house or temple or reused for the same mummy cartonnage (see for instance the archive of Leon) do not constitute by themselves archives. An archive is a group of texts which were collected in antiquity with a specific purpose (see bibliography). The purpose may even be to discard some items from a larger archive and then throw them away.
In the database we have collected information of more than 500 archives, dated between the 6th century BC and the 7th century AD in Greek, Latin, Demotic, Coptic, Arabic and a mixture of all these. For each archive the user can access the individual texts, now amounting to nearly 20,000 records. Hundred and thirty archives have already received a full description in PDF format; these are marked with the symbol + before the name. The 145 archives of the Fayum area, the ancient nomos Arsinoites, and 21 archives of the Upper Egyptian town of Pathyris have also been published in the series Collectanea Hellenistica (see Archives projects).
On the basis of the archive keepers a distinction can be made between public and private archives. The former were collected by an official or an administrative body, the latter by a private person or a group of persons. Typical examples of public archives are the tax lists of Karanis, the so-called archive of Menches (in fact the archive of the village scribes of Kerkeosiris) and the enteuxeis found at Magdola. Private archives may be owned by a single individual (e.g. Claudius Tiberianus) or by successive generations, in which case we can call them family archives (e.g. the Dryton archive). In several cases officials kept part of their administrative papers when retiring from office and even mixed them up with their private correspondence. Such mixed archives are preserved for the engineers Kleon and Theodoros and for Apollonios, the strategos of the Heptakomia.
A division by type of documents only partly coincides with that by archive keepers. Many private archives largely consists of title deeds, documents proving ownership rights over immovables, and receipts, showing that the archive keeper has paid his dues to other persons or to the state. This is particularly common with demotic texts. Archives linked with law-suits can be private (e.g. the lawsuit of Lamiske or that of Isidoros) or official (e.g. the enteuxeis or the petitions addressed to the village epistates of Euhemereia). Some archives consists entirely of correspondence, usually incoming, but also drafts or copies of incoming letters; examples are the private archive of Apollonios and the official archive of the oikonomos Harmachis. Few archives consists of a single type of documents, but in most there is a dominant factor, which we have tried to recognize.
The archive keeper has kept the documents for a certain use, which we have reconstructed wherever possible. Most documents are incoming or outgoing. Incoming documents were written by third persons for the archive keeper(s), e.g. letters, contracts or receipts for private persons, petitions or reports to officials. Outgoing documents are written by (or in the name of) the archive keepers; usually they are drafts or copies, the originals being sent or given to another party. Sometimes outgoing copies are returned to the sender, with an official subscription. They appear not only in private archives, but also in official archives (e.g. the land survey reports by the village scribe Menches). Sometimes older title-deeds end up in the hands of an archive keeper together with immovable property; they are incoming in an indirect way. In a law-suit dossier legal texts may be incorporated as precedents. There are also internal documents, mostly lists and accounts. The balance between incoming and outgoing documents, and the possible presence of unexplained "intruders" determines the typology of an archive as much as the type of archive owner(s) and the type of documents.

Papyrus Stories: Ancient Lives from the Ancient Past
Life in the ancient world, before the development of modern medicine, was hard. Child mortality rates were high, life-expectancy was much lower than it is today, and illnesses and injuries that are easily cured now were often fatal. Life out in the oases of the western desert must have been especially difficult.
For the past three decades, a team of researchers from Monash University led by Colin Hope have excavated the village Kellis, modern Ismant el-Kharab, in Dakhleh Oasis. This work resulted in the discovery of hundreds of Greek and Coptic documents, as well as a smaller number written in Syriac, found within buildings of the village and dating to the fourth century CE. They provide insights into different aspects of the lives of the inhabitants, mostly contained in letters that villagers wrote to family members working in the Nile Valley. The letters are full of details about daily affairs going on at home, keeping the absentees up-to-date with what they were missing. Among the business matters that are related, and general greetings, are topics of a less happy nature...

Academics today occupy a precarious position. The voices that glorify the profession are often drowned out by those that denigratingly claim its redundancy. However, what is most worrying, is that the larger part of the population is indifferent to the matter. And who can blame them? Knowledge for knowledge’s sake does not concern the man in the street. We, academicians, must plead guilty; all too often do we retreat to our ivory tower, speaking a language that only our peers can understand. We may frown upon the laymen with their outdated and false information about our fields of study, but isn’t it our own fault?
Luckily, the academic world is in a process of rethinking its position in society. Little by little, we are opening up to the broader public – if merely for the sake of our own survival. With this blog I hope to contribute to that development, and I wish to do it in such a manner that everyone with interest can understand what I am writing.
As Assyriologist I study languages and history of more than 5000 years ago, and even though a lot has changed since then, sometimes I am struck by the familiarity of things. This blog is about those familiarities – it is about humanness. Because even though the ancient Mesopotamians lived in different times and places from ours, they were people just like us.

Hugoye: Journal of Syriac Studies
ISSN: 1097-3702
http://www.bethmardutho.org/images/BM-Images/hugoyelogo2.jpg
Hugoye: Journal of Syriac Studies is an electronic journal dedicated to the study of the Syriac tradition, published semi-annually (in January and July) by Beth Mardutho. Published since 1998, Hugoye seeks to offer the best scholarship available in the field of Syriac studies.

The word Hugoye, the plural form of Hugoyo, derives from the root hg' meaning 'to think, meditate, study'. Hugoyo itself means 'study, meditation'. In modern times, the term has been applied for academic studies; hence, Hugoye Suryoye translates as 'Syriac Studies'.

Dacia: Revue d'archéologie et d'histoire ancienne
ISSN: 0070-251X
http://www.daciajournal.ro/sigle/sigla_iab.jpg
Revista Dacia a fost fondată în 1924 de către arheologul Vasile Pârvan, unul din întemeietorii şcolii arheologice româneşti. Prima serie a apărut în perioada 1924-1947 (Dacia. Recherches et découvertes archéologiques en Roumanie), ca revistă a Muzeului Naţional de Antichităţi, fiind apoi interzisă de autorităţile comuniste. 

Seria nouă începe în 1957 (Dacia. Revue d’archéologie et d’histoire ancienne), ca revistă a noului Institut de Arheologie al Academiei Române. Revista noastră publică, în engleză, franceză, germană şi italiană, în urma unui proces de peer-review, articole, note şi recenzii de arheologie şi istorie referitoare la un spectru cronologic larg, din paleolitic pînă în evul mediu, incluzând perspective din alte discipline (istoria artei, ştiinţe sociale etc.), cu o atenţie specială pentru contribuţiile dedicate Europei de sud-est şi ariilor învecinate.

Recunoaşterea internaţională a calităţilor revistei Dacia ne permite să o distribuim prin schimb la un număr de 350 parteneri din toată lumea.

eisodos: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur und Theorie
ISSN: 2364-4397
http://eisodos.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/cropped-eisodos_front2.jpg
eisodos – Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur und Theorie ist eine peer-reviewed, open-access, online-Zeitschrift für B.A.- und M.A.-Studierende sowie Doktoranden zu Beginn ihrer Promotion. Es werden sowohl Studierende der Klassischen Philologie als auch Studierende der Byzantinistik, des Mittel- und Neulatein, der Allgemeinen & Vergleichenden Literaturwissenschaft oder einer modernen Literaturwissenschaft eingeladen, Beiträge in deutscher oder englischer Sprache einzusenden.

Thematischer Schwerpunkt von eisodos sind Fragen der Interpretation von antiker Literatur und des Theorievergleichs. Interpretation von Literatur meint hier gleichberechtigt Studien zu Einzelwerken von Literatur, zu Einzelaspekten in diesen Werken sowie zu Literatur allgemein. Die theoretische Basis für verschiedene Herangehensweisen an Literatur sollen dabei stets auch thematisiert werden.

eisodos has as its focus questions on the interpretation of Ancient literature. The comparison of different literary theories is a further key aspect on which eisodos will welcome submissions. Interpretation here is intended to include both studies on individual works of literature or specific aspects in individual works of literature as well as studies on literature in general. The theoretical framework and approach that forms the basis of any of these interpretations should always be articulated.

The Denver Journal: An Online Review of Current Biblical and Theological Studies

Welcome to Denver Journal. The purpose of the Denver Journal is to establish an online Evangelical review journal of biblical and theological studies edited and produced by the faculty of Denver Seminary for use by alumni and all who are interested in biblical and theological ministry and research.
Denver Journal is a review journal. It aims to include reviews of all recent and significant books and published media relating to the major fields of biblical and theological studies: Old Testament, New Testament, Church History, Systematic Theology, World Christianity, Pastoral Ministry and Evangelism, Counseling, Philosophy of Religion, Education Ministries and Administration, Homiletics and Speech, and Youth and Family Ministries.
Denver Journal will include reviews as well as review articles that might include essays on the present state of studies in a field or specific area of that field, annotated bibliographies, extensive reviews of a work of particular significance, and other longer items. The reviews themselves, divided according to the major fields of biblical and theological studies, will normally be 500-800 words in length. An additional section of book notes will include 100-200 word summaries and evaluations of books that are worthy of note but not necessarily deserving a full review in the journal.
Denver Journal is an Evangelical journal. Its choice of books and reviewers reflects the Evangelical commitment and interests of the seminary.
The journal is online. All contributions are written and edited electronically.
You can view past Denver Journals here.
