Corpus Grammaticorum Latinorum: Accès aux sources grammaticales de la Latinité tardive: recherche, parcours textuels et bibliographie

[First posted in AWOL  27 March 2011. Updated 11 November 2018]

Corpus Grammaticorum Latinorum
The corpus of texts known as the Grammatici Latinicollection comprises the Latin grammar manuals written between the 2nd and 7th centuries AD and edited by Heinrich Keil in Leipzig, from 1855 to 1880. Keil’s philological criteria are now to some extent outdated; his selection and collation are incomplete and not always reliable; some works are represented only partly or simply by a specimen. Therefore, in our corpus, we replaced Keil’s edition by the most recent ones, whenever available, and works that were published in an incomplete form in Keil have been integrated in later, complete, editions.
The editorial choices are faithfully reproduced. Nevertheless, we provide an autonomous text, which is the result of a systematic work of ‘pre-edition’.
As Valeria Lomanto(‘A Concordance to Keil’s Latin Grammarians’, Computer and the Humanities 24, 1990, 429-430) wrote, ‘The pre-edition consists of a number of operations which aim to make the texts homogeneous from the point of view of form and to insert information which, while not present in the actual texts, may be gathered from the philological and exegetic tradition.
All references extraneous to the text are eliminated, namely:
  1. the numbering of books, chapters and paragraphs;
  2. the single or double slash which marked the end of pages in previous editions;
  3. all references both within a work and to other works;
  4. the attribution of quotations;
  5. isolated dashes or those which oppose an erroneous form to a correct one or which indicate the passage to another topic or which replace the word;
  6. the variants given in brackets.
We should note the following points concerning orthography and punctuation:
  1. consonantal and vocalic “i” and “u” respectively are not distinguished;
  2. the use of capitals is restricted to proper names (divinities, people, ethnica and their derivates, toponyms and the names of months and festivities);
  3. the accentuation of Greek is modified whenever it fails to conform to standard practice;
  4. correction of punctuation is limited to the removal of certain aberrations, especially in the Greek;
  5. parentheses are no longer marked by dashes but by round brackets in the case of whole phrases and by commas in the case of single words;
  6. to enable the collation of parallel passages all abbreviations have been expanded. This regards proper names, the initials of words forming quotations, abridged writing and so on.
[…] The titles of works quoted appear in italics.
The quotations appear within the text. […] In dialogues every change of speaker is indicated by a double colon. Quoted passages are always distinguished by the marks « » which replace inverted commas, indents, character spacings and italics. Therefore, the inverted commas recurring in the editions are eliminated when they single out isolated forms which illustrate a grammatical rule and are replaced by hyphens when they mark segments of words.
The system of scansion of the verse is unified through the use of dots which replace division of the words or subscript signs. All accents are eliminated.
The following conventional diacritic signs are used:
  1. { } for deletions;
  2. ‹ › for insertions replacing the italics with which they were indicated in the oldest editions;
  3. ( ) for expanded forms;
  4. * for gaps and in the place of dots or of formulae such as aliquid desideratur, deest folium unum, etc. used in the oldest editions;
  5. † for loci desperati.
The omissions carried out by the editor are marked by [...] which replaces the dashes, sometimes preceded by “etc.” or "κτλ." or by some other token of similar meaning.’
For lists of relevant examples, see:
– GrilliA., N. Marinone, V. Lomantoet al. (1979), ‘Concordanza dei Grammatici Latini’, Suppl. Atti dell’Accademia delle Scienze di Torino, Cl. sc. mor., st. e filol., 112.
– LomantoV. (1983), Concordantiae in Q. Aurelii Symmachi Opera, Hildesheim, Olms, vii-ix.
– LomantoV. – N. Marinone(1994), ‘Philologie et informatique: résultats et projets’, Revue Informatique et Statistique dans les Sciences Humaines (RISSH) 30, 55-74.
For the sake of general coherence, titles, attributions and structure of some texts have been modified. Thus, for example, the pseudo-Fronto in GL7,515-532 (= 387-403 Barwick) and the anonymous de idiomatis generum in GL4,573-584 (= 450-463 Barwick) have been recorded under Charisius’ name; Marius Victorinus sections in GL6,31,17-173,31 + 174,1-184,14 are registered under Aphthonius’ name.
The initiative to associate some automated procedures with an index, a concordance or a lexicon of the Latin artes Grammaticaewas first launched in the middle of the seventies by Nino Marinone, professor of the History of the Latin language at the University of Turin, in cooperation with her colleague Valeria Lomanto, and Andrea Bozzi, researcher at the Istituto di Linguistica computazionale(ILC-CNR) in Pisa. As personal computers did not yet exist at that time, the work was to be issued in a printout edition. The tool was designed to give researchers in-depth access to the texts and to constitute a basis for new critical editions, by formalizing the authors’ language and proceeding to a systematic collation of the parallel passages. The actual version of this project, grantingfree on-line access to the entire corpus, has been made possible by a three-year funding granted by the French National Research Agency(ANR JC 2006-2009), the support of the Intitut Universitaire de France, and the collaboration of Clément Plancq and Franck Cinato at the Laboratoire d’Histoire des Théories Linguistiques(HTL), CNRS - University of Paris-Diderot. The project is directed by Alessandro Garcea (University of Paris-Sorbonne) andValeria Lomanto (University of Turin).

The Book Of Shmu'el - A New Translation

The Book Of Shmu'el - A New Translation
by William Whitt

Publication date 2018-09-10Topics Books of Samuel, Old Testament, King David, Bible Translation,
King Saul, Samuel the Prophet, First Samuel, Second Samuel
Collection opensource
Language English

This translation of the Book of Shmu'el (or Samuel, as it is more
commonly known in English) has two purposes. One is to demonstrate how
the Hebrew of Tanakh is best translated--that is to say, into a
vigorous and dynamic English that recreates for the English
speaking-reader an equivalent experience to that of the reader of the
original Hebrew. For most of the authors of Tanakh, Hebrew was a
living language--the language of their everyday speech. A faithful
translation into English, then, should bring over the Hebrew into the
English that is spoken and written by English speakers of today. The
second purpose of this translation is to bring to life the stories of
Samuel, Saul, and David (or, as I refer to them in my translation,
Shmu'el, Sha'ul, and Dawid) so that their literary merit may more
easily be appreciated by those who don't read ancient Hebrew. These
stories are among the outstanding examples of literature from the
ancient world, and are worthy of being read and appreciated on their
own as literature, regardless of whether one views them as scripture.

This translation is unique in a number of ways. First, it is the only
English translation that respects the role of the ancient literary
divisions--the parashot petuhot and parashot setumot. Removing the
medieval chapter divisions as I have done and displaying the text
according to the ancient literary divisions greatly enhances the
narrative flow and reveals numerous dramatic effects that are
invisible in translations which are organized according to the
medieval chapter divisions. Second, this translation prioritizes
"dynamic equivalence" far more than other English translations. As a
result, it is superior to other English translations in capturing the
energy and vibrancy of the prose in Shmu'el. Uniquely among ancient
Hebrew prose, the principal author of Shmu'el strove to represent the
spoken Hebrew of his day. Nearly all the dialogue is written in a
colloquial style full of idiomatic language; a faithful translation
must reflect this with colloquial and idiomatic English. Lastly, the
translation is illustrated with representations from the Megiddo
Ivories dating to the 13th century BCE. The use of ancient art to
illustrate the text allows the modern reader to get closer to how the
original audience might have imagined the action in the text as they
were reading or hearing it for the first time.

Edited by Dimitris Damaskos and Dimitris Plantzos
A Singular Antiquity is an attempt to investigate the ideological strategies, somewhat improvised yet at times quite effective, through which the materiality of Greek archaeology has been employed as the foundation for the metaphysics of Greekness.

      New Open Access Journal: Revista Otarq: Otras arqueologías

      Revista Otarq: Otras arqueologías
      ISSN: 2530-4933
      Imagen de la página inicial de la revista

      OTARQ pretende ser una publicación científica sobre Arqueología, que muestre otras expresiones científicas e investigaciones que enriquezcan los nuevos planteamientos que reclama la profesión arqueológica. “Otras arqueologías” que, durante mucho tiempo han sido olvidadas tanto en planes de estudio, como en eventos y publicaciones científicas. Y más en concreto, en aquellos trabajos que reflejen tanto la inter como la transdisciplinariedad de la Arqueología.
      El germen de la revista se encuentra en el año 2014, con la celebración en la Universidad Rey Juan Carlos del I Congreso Internacional sobre Otras Arqueologías (COTARQ), que ahondaba en estos aspectos y temáticas de la investigación arqueológica.
      La revista OTARQ pretende involucrar a otras disciplinas y técnicas que participen con la Arqueología en la obtención de resultados que permitan conocer mejor las sociedades pasadas, así como la didáctica y difusión de la disciplina arqueológica, interpretándola como uno de los elementos identitarios de la publicación.
      Algunas líneas temáticas que pretende abordar la publicación son, el paisaje como elemento de transformación multitemporal; la arqueología de la contemporaneidad, desde su vertiente más teórica hasta los estudios centrados en el Patrimonio Industrial, servicios, conflictos, etc.; las grafías pre e históricas, consideradas como elementos de representación gráfica de las identidades y símbolos de las comunidades humanas, en sus múltiples formatos (grabados rupestres, grafitos históricos, soportes muebles, entre otros); ciencias y técnicas aplicadas a la Arqueología; la Arqueoantropología y la Bioarqueología, para comprender los aspectos relacionados con los modos de vida de las sociedades desde el tiempo pasado; análisis de los distintos procesos de comprensión del fenómeno rito/mito, como estudio de las identidades y el mundo simbólico interpretado con metodología arqueológica.
      Finalmente, dentro de las temáticas queremos dar cierta importancia a los aspectos relacionados tanto con la aplicación de nuevas tecnologías en la Arqueología, como con los procesos de difusión, enseñanza y socialización del Patrimonio, en sus diferentes contextos, tanto de educación formal como informal, museografía, Arqueología Pública, etc.
      Por todo ello, esta revista está dirigida a profesionales del ámbito de estas "Otras arqueologías" definidas por la temática, bien desde la Academia, la profesión liberal o cualquier otro espacio formal o informal de la práctica. En todo caso, la revista tiene un foco académico y, por ello, se espera que las propuestas se ajusten a éste.

      In hac tabula, cuncta volumina illius celeberrimi operis "in usum Delphini" ordinavimus, quae apud Google Books ita sunt permixta, variis editionibus paginisque minime inter se congruentibus, ut vix depromi possint sine magna temporis iactura. Deinde adiecimus volumina Bibliothecae Classicae Latinae, opus dignissimum licet paulo doctius quam Delphini. Qui litteras antiquas legit, magnum commodum capiet ex notis quae in hac aut illa editione adhibentur. Si singula volumina adire taedet, omnia seorsum in hoc loco necnon hoc loco congessimus.
      Dans cette table, vous trouverez tous les volumes de la célèbre série "in usum Delphini" des auteurs latins, qui ont pour particularité de rendre les textes accessibles au lecteur au moyen des notes grammaticales et historiques, écrites entièrement en latin. Nous avons ajouté les volumes de la Bibliotheca latina classica, un peu plus savants, mais très utiles pour le débutant.

      Open Access Journal: Royal Ontario Museum Archaeological Newsletter

       [First posted in AWOL 26 April 2010. Updated 13 November 2018 (This is no longer at the ROM website. Links now to the Internet Archive)]

      Royal Ontario Museum Archaeological Newsletter
      ISSN : 0563-9239
      The Archaeological Newsletter (ANL) began life in 1956 as a chatty letter from the trenches of the Jerusalem Project to ROM members back in Canada. The late Dr. Douglas A. Tushingham thought that members might like to be kept informed about the latest research that ROM archaeologists were doing in the field. The ANL proved to be very popular as members felt connected to their Museum and its research in a tangible way. They also enjoyed reading about how, even indirectly, their financial contributions were helping to further archaeological research at the ROM. 
      In the years following, it evolved into a four-page, text and images report with each issue focusing on an individual aspect of on-going excavation, lab research or other archaeological work by ROM curators, staff or research associates. Topic areas have included interim reports on long-term excavation and survey projects, blood residue, petrographic, and use-wear analyses, detecting ceramic fakes, underwater archaeology, public archaeology, epigraphic recording, the early use of archaeological databases, and rock art research among many others. Articles have centred on research in areas as diverse as China, Ontario, Egypt and Sudan, Yemen, Belize, and Peru among others.
      The Archaeological Newsletter has been a favourite of ROM members and people interested in archaeology around the world. Prominent research libraries worldwide subscribe to the ANL and the ROM receives frequent research requests for back issues. We are pleased to now offer the Archaeological Newsletter online and plan to post back issues at a future date.

      Digital Crete - Ψηφιακή Κρήτη

      [First posted in AWOL 22 January 2013, updagted 14 November 2018]

      Ψηφιακή Κρήτη: Μεσογειακές Πολιτισμικές Διαδρομές - Digital Crete: Mediterranean Cultural Itineries.
      The project Digital Crete: Mediterranean Cultural Itineries was implemented under the framework of the Greek Operational Program Information Society (Action 1: Education and Culture, Measure 1.3: Documentation, Management & Promotion of Greek Cultural Heritage) (www.infosociety.gr), which follows up the eEurope initiative of the European Union and which was funded by the 3rd European Community Support Framework. The same funding framework provided support for the continuation of the project (Expansion & Upgrade of Digital Crete). Digital Crete aims towards the creation of a cultural information system, consisting of digitized documentation and information regarding the cultural heritage of the island of Crete, from prehistory to the modern periods.
      Digital Crete has incorporated the following inventory modules:
      • A Digital Archaeological Atlas of Crete from prehistory to the Roman period, through the use of satellite remote sensing and Geographical Information Systems technology (Scientific supervision by Apostolos Sarris)
      • A Database on the Western Art of the island of Crete during the Venetian period (Scientific supervision by Olga Gratziou)
      • A Database on El Greco (Dominikos Theotokopoulos) and his works
      • A Database on Ottoman Crete, including information related to the habitation and settlement patterns and existing monuments (Scientific supervision by Elias Kolovos  & Antonis Anastasopoulos)
      • A Database on the history of Crete in the 20th century (Scientific supervision by Christos Loukos)
      • Musical Routes – Digital Ethno-musicological collections of Crete (Scientific supervision by Christos Terzis and Irene Theodosopoulou)
      The final results of the project include the creation of a Digital Documentation and Management Inventory Unit, which is established as a center for scientific research and educational activities. An infokiosk and a WEB site provide also continuous access to the domain of the cultural databases of I.M.S., which contain information from multiple sectors of culture (archaeology, history, art, etc) in a diachronic base.  The terminals of the Digital Documentation and Management Inventory Unit at IMS provide a faster and easier access to even more information that those which are accessible through the internet.

      5000 Fonds Louis Robert photographs Online
      You are invited to offer identifications and comments on the more than 5000 photographs that are held in the Fonds Louis Robert of the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres at the Institut de France in Paris. These photos have been digitized from glass plates, negatives, and prints through the initiative of Thibaut Boulay and Anne-Valérie Pont with funding from the Institut Universitaire de France. They are displayed all together in Photostream and also in two separate albums according to whether they are on glass plates or on prints and negatives.
      These images are, like other material in the Fonds Louis Robert (squeezes, carnets, and correspondence) the joint responsibility of Jean-Louis Ferrary, membre de l’Institut, and Glen Bowersock, associé étranger de l’Académie.

      Open Access Journal: Archäologie Weltweit

      [First posted in AWOL 23 February 2015, updated 35 November 2018]

      Archäologie Weltweit
      Archäologie Weltweit ist das Magazin des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts für eine breite interessierte Öffentlichkeit. Es berichtet zwei Mal im Jahr über die Arbeit des DAI und erzählt darin Geschichten über die Fähigkeit der Archäologie, alte Rätsel zu lösen, aber auch darüber, wie Erkenntnisse über die Antike für Gegenwart und Zukunft nutzbar gemacht werden können – mit oft überraschenden Ergebnissen.

      Archäologie Weltweit 2-2018

      Afrika ist derzeit mit vielen Themen medial präsent, etwa in der Diskussion um die Provenienz und Restitution afrikanischer Objekte in europäischen Museen. Die aktuellen Ereignisse sind häufig mit der kolonialen oder vorkolonialen Geschichte des afrikanischen Kontinents verwoben oder haben dort ihren Ausgangspunkt. Doch gerade die vorkoloniale Geschichte ist mit Ausnahmen in Nordafrika bisher wenig bekannt.
      Afrika ist daher Thema der neuen Ausgabe von Archäologie Weltweit. Das Heft setzt Schlaglichter aus verschiedenen Projekten des DAI und wirbt dafür, Afrika stärker in den Mittelpunkt des Interesses zu rücken.

      Provenienz ist aktuell zu dem zentralen Thema im Umgang mit dem kulturellen Erbe geworden. Für die Archäologie gehört die Erforschung der Herkunft von Objekten hingegen schon immer zum Kerngeschäft. Das Titelthema beschäftigt sich daher mit der Provenienzforschung als hoch komplexer historischer Forschung aus dem speziellen archäologischen Blick heraus. Über den Wert von Scherben erzählt die Rubrik „Alltag Archäologie" und wie Zeichnungen bauforscherischen Ergebnissen Leben einhauchen, erfahren Sie im „Panorama".

      Der Wert der Grenze
      Wie unterschiedlich Grenzen wirken, je nachdem aus welcher Entfernung man sie betrachtet, wie verschieden auch ihre Wirkung - oder Wirkungslosigkeit - sein kann, zeigt das Titelthema dieser Ausgabe von Archäologie Weltweit. Schier grenzenlos scheint die Arbeit des Friedrich Hinkel Archivs zum Sudan, einem der umfangreichsten und ungewöhnlichsten Archive des DAI zu sein, nachzulesen in "Alltag Archäologie". Und dass die Baustellenlogistik der Antike häufig weit weniger an Grenzen stieß, als das heute gelegentlich der Fall ist, erklärt unser "Fokus".

      Das Titelthema wirft einen Blick in die Vergangenheit und die Vielfalt möglicher Entscheidungsprozesse.
      Wie langwierig und aufwendig Entscheidungsprozesse heute in einzelnen Forschungsprojekten sein können, zeigt unsere Rubrik „Alltag Archäologie" mit einem Vorhaben aus Marokko. Und wie es gelingen kann, die Entscheidungen der archäologischen Wissenschaft mit denen der Menschen in unseren Gastländern in Übereinstimmung zu bringen, können Sie im Bericht zur Rettung eines Denkmals in Äthiopien lesen (Cultural Heritage).

      Archäologie Weltweit 2017 Sonderausgabe

      Die Neue Bauakademie
      Megacities sind zu zentralen Herausforderungen unserer Zeit geworden. Das stete Wachsen einiger Städte und die Entvölkerung ehemaliger Industriestädte machen die Stadt zu einem Ort, an dem in großer Dynamik soziale und kulturelle Veränderungen wirksam werden. Deshalb braucht es Denkräume, um die nicht selten separat agierenden Disziplinen und Experten zum Thema zusammenzubringen. Die in diesem Heft skizzierten Perspektiven sollen die Diskussion um den Wiederaufbau der Bauakademie bereichern und für einen Ort werben, der sich diesen zentralen Themen ganz im Sinne Schinkels in einem ganzheitlichen Ansatz nähert.

      Die Vermessung des Altertums
      Das Titelthema zeigt Beispiele, wie die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Archäologie und Naturwissenschaften funktionieren kann. Wie dies im Besonderen auch in der internationalen Kooperation zu bahnbrechenden Ergebnissen führen kann, offenbart unsere Rubrik „Cultural Heritage" mit einem Beitrag über die chinesisch-deutschen Arbeiten am „Pavillon im beseelten Teich" in der Verbotenen Stadt in Peking. Das „Panorama" zeigt, dass die Autoren archäologischer Werke die Hoffnung niemals aufgeben dürfen. Denn es kann geschehen, dass sie auch noch nach 90 Jahren veröffentlicht werden können.

      Archäologie Weltweit 1-2016

      Die Welt in Bewegung ist das Titelthema dieser Ausgabe. Nach neolithischen Reisen geht es weiter zu griechischen internationalen Heiligtümern, ins Imperium Romanum kurz vor seiner Transformation in das Mittelalter, zu Häfen auf verschiedenen Kontinenten bis schließlich in den weit entfernten Südpazifik. Wie man durch Gründung eines „Archaeological Heritage Network" aktuelle Bewegungen zum Anlass nehmen kann, sich auf gemeinsame Ursprünge zu besinnen und zusammenzuarbeiten, zeigt unser „Fokus", und das „Panorama" berichtet, welches menschliche Bedürfnis seit 40.000 Jahren eine wesentliche Rolle in unser aller Leben spielt: Musik.

      Rekonstruktionen. Ein Netzwerk für das archäologische Kulturerbe
      Das Kompetenznetzwerk „Archaeological Heritage Network" (ArcHerNet) bündelt deutsche Kompetenzen im Bereich des Kulturerhaltes und Kulturgüterschutzes. Ziel ist es, diese auch für Kulturerhaltsmaßnahmen im Ausland wirksam werden zu lassen. Als erstes Projekt hat das Netzwerk, unterstützt durch das Auswärtige Amt, das Projekt „Stunde Null" ins Leben gerufen, um in konflikt- und krisengeschüttelten Ländern eine Zukunft für die Zeit nach der Krise zu entwickeln.Erfahren Sie mehr dazu in dieser Sonderausgabe.

      Collections for the study of the country of Palestine of the Gustaf-Dalman Institute
      Image result for Gustaf-Dalman Institute
      The theological faculty of the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt University in Greifswald harbours a certainly internationally almost unique collection of highest scientific interest and standard. The collection is owed to the encyclopaedic and universally scientifically oriented research activities of Gustaf Dalmans (1855 – 1941), who, through facts and pictures, gathered and documented everything that accounted for the land of the Bible in his opinion, especially in the time before World War I, when Palestine still possessed its agrarian character. Today, the collection is located in the Gustaf-Dalman Institute. It was founded in 1920, and carries his name. As first director of the German Protestant Institute for Antique Sciences of the Holy Land, which opened in 1902 in Jerusalem, and up until 1914, he regularly conducted lectures for young theologists from Germany, meanwhile studying the Land of Palestine and the life of its inhabitants. In 1917, Dalman was summoned back to Greifswald, and could bring a little part of his amazing collection with him.

      Besides a wide-ranged library concerning the study of the Land of Palestine, the history, the religion and the culture of the Jewish people, the collection includes almost 15.000 glass sheet pictures and photographs as well as stone probes, a collection of woods and ceramics, products for the processing of cereals, archaeological findings, relief maps and clothes. Moreover, the collection also includes several house and acre tools, partly as models, some of them built by Gustaf Dalman himself, and a herbarium including around 2.000 specimens. This is only a small and yet quite representative part of all the elements that Gustaf Dalmans held in his collections in Jerusalem.

      What ethnologists, archaeologists, geographs, botanists and mineralogists ever gather for themselves and subject-specifically is assembled here to represent a universal picture. It provides a unique view on the country of Palestine at the beginning of the 20th century. Worldwide scientists benefit from this collection.

      Dialogues d'histoire ancienne
      eISSN - 1955-270X
      En 1974, Pierre Lévêque crée la revue Dialogues d’Histoire Ancienne, conçue comme un espace de présentation et de discussion des études sur l’histoire des sociétés antiques, de leurs structures sociales, économiques, religieuses et culturelles.
      Revue d’histoire ancienne généraliste publiée par l’Institut des Sciences Techniques de l’Antiquité (ISTA) de l’Université de Franche-Comté, elle s’efforce également d’offrir des approches diverses, d’inventorier des domaines nouveaux, de s’intéresser à des espaces considérés trop longtemps comme périphériques.

      vHMML: Resources for Manuscript Studies

      [First posted in AWOL 11 April 2016, updated 16 November 2018]

      vHMML: Resources for Manuscript Studies


      vHMML offers resources and tools for the study of manuscripts and currently features manuscript cultures from Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia. The site houses high-resolution images of manuscripts, many of them digitized as part of HMML’s global mission to preserve and share important, endangered, and inaccessible manuscript collections through digital photography, archiving, and cataloging. It also contains descriptions of manuscripts from HMML's legacy microfilm collection, with scans of some of these films.


      vHMML is an initiative of the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library. The project began as a partnership between HMML staff and developers from the Center for Digital Humanities at Saint Louis University (James Ginther, PI) and the Carolingian Canon Law Project at the University of Kentucky (Abigail Firey, PI), with initial support from a 2012 National Leadership Grant by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, supplemented by the Arcadia Fund. 
      vHMML 1.0, with School, Lexicon, Reference and Folio, launched in October 2015. The first three components were developed by Chad LaVigne of Solution Design Group (sdg) in Golden Valley, Minnesota. The team at the University of Kentucky developed Folio using the rich tools of Scriptorium, the digital environment they designed for collaborative research on manuscripts.
      vHMML 2.0 with Reading Room launched in August 2016. Even before the launch of vHMML 1.0, the HMML team was working on a virtual Reading Room that would be the centerpiece of vHMML 2.0. The task required a comprehensive makeover of OLIVER, HMML's online manuscript catalog first developed in the late 1990s. The choice of Mirador, a IIIF-compliant image viewer, and the creation of a new metadata schema to replace OLIVER, put Reading Room at the forefront of developments in manuscript description for digital environments. Reading Room was funded by the Henry Luce Foundation. The new catalog database that replaced OLIVER was funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Improvements to vHMML 2.0 were released in the spring of 2018 as the initial results of a Digital Humanities Advancement Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
