PAN: Rivista di Filologia Latina
ISSN: 0390-3141
E-ISSN: 2284-0478
http://portale.unipa.it/dipartimenti/beniculturalistudiculturali/riviste/pan/.content/immagini/Bannerpan.jpg
La rivista Pan. Studi dell’Istituto di Filologia latina è stata fondata nel 1973 da Giusto Monaco, con l’intento di testimoniare un impegno di ricerca nell’ambito della Filologia classica e di contribuire all’affermarsi in sede scientifica dell’Istituto di Filologia latina, da poco costituitosi. Si proponeva coma una miscellanea di articoli e brevi saggi relativi alla letteratura latina e alle discipline ad essa affini, la cui periodicità non veniva fissata in partenza ma si faceva dipendere «dalla frequenza con cui si avesse qualcosa di concreto da dire in poche pagine». L’intitolazione Pan si doveva alla forte carica simbolica e semantica contenuta nel nome. Documentare la presenza a Palermo di un’attività scientifica nell’ambito della letteratura latina e promuovere una scuola attraverso un severo esercizio filologico, senza concessioni a facili e generici approcci, appaiono dunque come caratteristiche precipue che distinguono la rivista sin dalla nascita. Allievo, alla scuola Normale di Pisa, di Giorgio Pasquali, Giusto Monaco impresse una svolta di grande efficacia e serietà alla storia degli studi classici nell’Università di Palermo e attraverso le raccolte di Pan, da lui seguite con dedizione per circa venti anni, creò un centro di studi al quale afferirono giovani ricercatori, poi affermatisi, latinisti e filologi classici, medievisti, studiosi di letteratura cristiana antica e di teatro greco e latino, che trovarono nella rivista la sede cui destinare naturalmente i propri contributi. Il numero 11-12 comprende la silloge degli “Scritti minori” di Giusto Monaco, curata da Domenico Romano, come i successivi 13-14, a partire dai quali viene assunto il sottotitolo “Studi dell’Istituto di Filologia latina Giusto Monaco”, in omaggio al fondatore e ideatore della rivista, nel frattempo scomparso. Negli anni successivi, il numero unico 15-16 raccoglie gli studi in onore di Domenico Romano, dedicatigli dai docenti dell’Istituto di Filologia greca e di Filologia Latina: i numerosi contributi di Letteratura greca ivi compresi non rappresentano una novità, in quanto Pan è sempre stata una pubblicazione aperta all’intero campo della filologia classica. Il numero 17 contiene poi gli scritti minori di Cataldo Roccaro, valoroso medievista, docente di Storia della Letteratura latina medioevale presso l’Università di Palermo, prematuramente sottratto ala sua attività, cui è rivolta la Miscellanea di studi in memoria compresa nel numero 18-19. Quest’ultimo volume di circa 500 pagine si apre a contributi di vasto respiro, che coprono l’arco dei saperi relativi all’antichità, al medioevo e oltre. Da questo momento in poi la rivista si qualifica come “Studi del Dipartimento di Civiltà Euro-mediterranee e di Studi Classici, Cristiani, Bizantini, Medievali, Umanistici”, seguendo l’avvenuta trasformazione del precedente Istituto e arricchendo così il suo raggio d’azione verso diversi settori. Da questa data, il 2001, si dà anche una regolarità, attraverso una direzione, assunta da Gianna Petrone, un comitato di redazione, una segreteria ecc., cercando di mantenere, ove possibile, una scadenza annuale.

 Inscriptiones Graecae: Elektronische Edition
http://pom.bbaw.de/ig/imgs/img02.png
Inschriften sind die Fußnoten im Buch der Geschichte der alten Welt; nur daß über weite Strecken der Haupttext fehlt.
Inschriften sind Primärquellen zur Geschichte, Religionsgeschichte, Sprachwissenschaft, Onomastik usw., die die antiken Autoren ergänzen, illustrieren, korrigieren. Jede Inschrift ist ein Original. Meist verstümmelt gefunden, sind sie in hohem Maße der Ergänzung und Interpretation bedürftig. Mitunter gelingt es, verstreute Fragmente ein- und derselben Inschrift zusammenzusetzen. Der Zustrom an neuen Inschriften hält unvermindert an: jährlich werden ca. 1000 neu publiziert.

Inschriften sind in der Regel auf Metall eingeritzt oder punziert, auf Stein eingemeißelt und mit Farbe (rot, blau) ausgelegt. Qualität und Menge der Inschriften ist abhängig von den zur Verfügung stehenden Gesteinen. Metallplatten sind besonders auf der Peloponnes verbreitet. Bleiplättchen werden, zusammengerollt, für Verwünschungen bevorzugt. Silber und Gold sind äußerst selten. Die ältesten Inschriften stammen aus dem 8. Jh. v.Chr. Es gibt keinen Zwischenraum zwischen den Worten (scriptio continua); Interpunktionen finden sich in frühester Zeit willkürlich, in der Kaiserzeit nach röm. Vorbild gelegentlich; dann auch Abkürzungen.
Der Inhalt der Inschriften äußerst mannigfach. Am häufigsten sind Grabinschriften auf Grabstelen (mit Relief), -säulen, -altären: Namen der Toten und Gruß. Eine besondere Form bilden Grabgedichte - Weih-Inschriften an die Götter, oft auf dem geweihten Gegenstand selbst angebracht; häufig nach einem Sieg bei sportlichen oder musischen Agonen gestiftet [16]. - Ehren-Inschriften, vor allem Unterschriften von Statuen, erst seit dem 4.Jh. v.Chr. häufiger, in röm. Zeit massenhaft. - Bildhauer-Inschriften, in denen sich der ausführende Künstler nennt. - Dekrete mit den Beschlüssen der Gesamtgemeinde oder ihrer Abteilungen und Vereine, im Formular in den einzelnen Poleis verschieden. Es überwiegen Ehrendekrete für Bürger anderer Poleis, Könige, römische Magistrate, denen das Ehrenbürgerrecht (Proxenie) verliehen wird. - Freilassungsurkunden von Sklaven, oft als (fiktiver) Verkauf an eine Gottheit vollzogen und in deren Tempel dokumentiert. - Grenz- und Hypothekensteine (horoi). - Gesetze und Regelungen privatrechtlicher sowie öffentlicher und sakraler Angelegenheiten bis hin zur Kodifizierung geltenden Rechts. - Religiöse Texte, Hymnen (mit Noten). - Briefe von hellenistischen Königen und römischen Kaisern. - Bauinschriften, Abrechnungs-Urkunden, Inventarlisten von sakralem Gerät. - Listen und Kataloge von Gegenständen (z.B. auf den Schiffen der athenischen Flotte) und Personen (z.B. von eponymen Beamten, Priestern). - Zwischenstaatliche Urkunden (Asylieurkunden, Staatsverträge, Akten der Rechtssprechung).
Die Sammlung der antiken Inschriften wurde im Jahre 1815 von der Preußischen Akademie der Wissenschaften auf Antrag von August Boeckh beschlossen. In den vier Bänden des "Corpus Inscriptionum Graecarum" wurden 1828-1859 alle damals bekannten Inschriften gesammelt und kommentiert. Ulrich von Wilamowitz-Moellendorff vereinte 1902 das Prinzip der Autopsie mit dem der Vollständigkeit, beschränkte zugleich die auf 15 Bände geplanten "Inscriptiones Graecae" (IG) auf Griechenland, Italien und die Inseln der Ägäis. Zur Aktualisierung der Sammlung sind Neuauflagen (editio altera) sowie Supplementbände vorgesehen.
Die digitale Edition enthält, beginnend mit dem im Jahre 2001 erschienenen Band IG IX 1², 4, Texte und deutsche Übersetzungen aller Inschriften; die Aufnahme von Übersetzungen in anderen Sprachen ist vorgesehen. In den Übersetzungen wurde auf diakritische Zeichen weitgehend verzichtet; Ergänzungen sind nicht eigens gekennzeichnet, sondern ergeben sich aus dem Vergleich mit der Edition. In bestimmten Fällen sind weitergehende Ergänzungen aus dem kritischen Apparat in eckigen Klammern [ ] wiedergegeben; für den Sinnzusammenhang notwendige sowie erklärende Zusätze sind durch runde Klammern ( ) kenntlich gemacht. Lücken gleich welchen Umfangs werden einheitlich durch "- - -" gekennzeichnet. Alle Zeitangaben sind v. Chr., sofern nicht anders angegeben. Die Abkürzungen "S. d." (= "Sohn des") und "T. d." (= Tochter des") umschreiben das griechische Patronymikon.

Monuments of Mosul in Danger

Monuments of Mosul in Danger
The project Monuments of Mosul in Danger (Ohrožená architektura města Mosulu) – supported by the Oriental Institute, The Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague, and the research programme Strategy AV21 of The Czech Academy of Sciences – was launched in reaction to a serious threat to the Mosul architectural sites from ISIS (Daesh), who seized the town in June 2014. Since then, dozens of historical sites have been razed to the ground or severely damaged. Monuments of diverse types, such as mosques, madrasas, mausolea, graveyards, churches and monasteries have been subject to destruction. 
Mosul architecture has only been marginally researched by Western scholars. Because of this, we are not aware of how much world cultural heritage we have been deprived of. The first and only systematic survey of Islamic, Christian, and Jewish monuments in Mosul was conducted by Ernst Herzfeld in 1907-1908. Subsequently, only several aspects of Mosul medieval architecture have been written about by, among others, Ugo Monneret de Villard and Eugen Wirth. Mosul architecture has been studied by many outstanding Iraqi researchers (e.g., Sa‛id al-Diwahji, Tariq Jawad Janabi, Ahmad Qasim al-Jum‛a, Ahmad al-Sufi, al-Kubaisi, al-Tutunchi, and others). Their research, however, remains largely unrecognized by the Western historical and archeological discourse.

Women Biblical Scholars
Throughout history women have loved, studied, and taught the Jewish and Christian scriptures. Unfortunately, many of us have never heard of these biblical scholars and thinkers. Often they are left out of history books and classroom discussion. The goal of this blog is to draw attention to the works of women and discover what they contribute to our understanding of the biblical texts. With greater awareness, this scholarship can shape course curriculum, homilies, public discourse, and academia itself.
The blog includes profiles, interviews, book reviews, and other means to spotlight women biblical scholars. Of particular interest are scholars whose work contributes to the thriving of faith communities and advances helpful discussion of religion in our contemporary world. Check out the developing Index of Scholars for names and works of women across history. This makes it easy to find the primary texts you want. Also don’t miss seeing today’s women biblical scholars in action–our growing Video and Audio page gives you access to lectures, presentations, and interviews. Finally, if you are looking for a dictionary on women interpreters or want to read a memoir or biography of a female scholar be sure to stop by the Books page.
If you know of something that should be added to this site, would like to contribute a guest post, or help develop the index of scholars please e-mail: women.biblical.scholars@gmail.com.

Kelsey Museum Newsletter
Kelsey Museum Newsletter Fall 2017
The Kelsey Museum is the brainchild of Francis W. Kelsey, Professor of Latin at the University of Michigan from 1889 to 1927. Kelsey pursued an active program of collecting antiquities for use in teaching, and launched the first university-sponsored archaeological excavations in the Mediterranean and Near Eastern regions in 1924. Most of the artifacts in the Kelsey Museum come from excavations carried out in Egypt and Iraq in the 1920s and 1930s.
In 1928, shortly after Kelsey’s death, the Museum of Classical Archaeology was installed in Newberry Hall on State Street. It was renamed in honor of Professor Kelsey in 1953, and enlarged with the construction of the William Upjohn Exhibit Wing in 2009. In addition to conserving and exhibiting its collections, the Museum still sponsors field projects in countries around the Mediterranean (although the artifacts recovered in those excavations now all remain in their countries of origin), and it plays a vital role in undergraduate and graduate teaching and research.

We are delighted to announce that five more downloadable datasets containing a total of 139 digitised Hebrew Manuscripts have just been published online here, bringing the total number of Hebrew datasets to 22, and 723 manuscripts. These manuscripts were digitised as part of The Polonsky Foundation Catalogue of Digitised Hebrew Manuscripts (2013-2016), and we are able to provide them to download and reuse as part of the British Library Labs project (BL Labs).

Formed in 2013, BL Labs is an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation funded project which supports and inspires the use of the British Library’s digital collections and data in exciting and innovative ways, through competitions, events and collaborative projects around the world. The team provides a digital research support service (you may apply for up to 5 days’ support service using this form)and promotes engagement with the Library’s digital collections and data through a series of events and workshops around the UK.
Each autumn, the British Library Labs Awards recognises exceptional projects that have used the Library’s digital collections and data in four awards categories: Research, Artistic, Commercial, and Teaching/Learning (If you know of someone who has done outstanding work using British Library digital collections and data, please encourage them to apply).

What’s in the datasets?
The digitised manuscripts are provided as 300ppi JPEGs, divided into small datasets of around 50GB each, sorted alphabetically by shelfmark (20 to 30 manuscripts per dataset). They contain a huge variety of Hebrew manuscripts, including Kabbalistic works, linguistic works, prayer books, biblical texts and commentaries, marriage certificates, charters and scrolls. The manuscripts also contain texts in many different languages, including Latin, Greek, Yiddish, Persian, Italian, Arabic and Syriac. The catalogue records for all of these manuscripts can be found in dataset Heb1 (TEI XML files).
All of the manuscripts are Public Domain, but we would appreciate it if users could read our Ethical terms of use guide before reusing the Hebrew manuscripts datasets.
Below is an overview of each of the new datasets, and a full list of all of the manuscripts included in the datasets can be seen here. We'd love to hear what you've done or made with the manuscript images and/or metadata, so please email us at digitalresearch@bl.uk.
Heb18. This dataset includes 22 manuscripts ranging from Add MS 27141 to Arundel Or 50. It includes commentaries on the Talmud and Midrash, Kabbalistic works, two German prayer books (Add MS 27208 and Add MS 27556) and a collection of medical prescriptions ‘Sefer Refu’ot’ from the 15th century, Germany (Add MS 27170). The miscellany Arundel OR 50 (1400-1799) includes a Hebrew Grammar in Latin, with a translation of the Lord's Prayer and the Christian confession of faith.
This dataset also includes ‘The Polyglot Bible’ (Add MS 5242), created in England in 1665. As well as having beautifully detailed illustrations, this manuscript, will be of great interest to linguists. It contains excerpts from the Old and New Testament and liturgical pieces translated into many different languages: Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Syriac, Aramaic, Ethiopic, Arabic, Persian, Coptic, Spanish, Italian, French and German.

Noc
Heb19. This dataset includes 20 manuscripts from Harley MS 1743 to Or 12983. It contains many manuscripts looking at language and translation, including several Hebrew-Latin dictionaries and grammars, a 17 – 18th-century copy of the Psalms with Greek and Latin translations (Harley MS 2427), and Harley MS 7637, an 18th-century gospel of St Matthew in Hebrew translation. It also contains the 18 – 19th-century German manuscript ‘Perek Shirah’ (Or 12983), a midrashic commentary with a Yiddish translation.
6_or_12983_f001rPerek Shirah, Germany, 1750 – 1899, Or 12983, f. 1r: a depiction of the world God created at the beginning of Chapter 1 of ‘Perek Shirah’: “The Heavens are saying: ‘The Heavens speak of God’s glory, and the skies tell of His handiwork.’ (Ps. 19:2)” 
Noc
The dataset also includes two early copies of parts of the Talmud – one of the central texts in Judaism. Harley MS 5794* (this manuscript has since been renamed in the British Library catalogue as Harley MS 5794A) contains sections of the Mishnah of Tractates Avot and Zeva’im, and was written in Spain in the 12th century. The manuscript Harley MS 5508 contains eight tractates of Seder Mo’ed from the Babylonian Talmud, and it was written in Spain in the 12th or 13th-century.
Heb20. This dataset includes 32 manuscripts from Or 2486 to Or 2508. It includes many different biblical commentaries and Midrashim (biblical exegesis) in Persian, Arabic, and Judeo-Arabic. Some of these range from as early as the 13th century (such as Or 2494 – Or 2497).
The dataset also includes the Torah scroll Or 13027. This 30 metre, 18-19th century scroll was digitised alongside its silk mantle, which was extensively restored by the British Library’s textile conservator Liz Rose. An article discussing her work can be seen here. As part of the Hebrew Manuscript Digitisation Project’s digital scholarship activities, this Torah mantle was 3D modelled by Dr Adi Keinan-Schoonbaert. You can read more about 3D imaging within the British Library here, and the 3D image of the Torah Mantle can be viewed, annotated and downloaded from Sketchfab.

Heb21. This dataset includes 33 manuscripts from Or 2518 to Or 5834. It includes many Arabic and Judeo-Arabic commentaries ranging in age from the 10th to the 16th centuries, such as on the Psalms and other biblical books from the Prophets and the Hagiographa. The earliest of these (Or 2552) is a collection of commentaries on Ecclesiastes and Lamentations, and Japheth ben Ali's Arabic commentary on Job. Japheth ben Ali is considered to be the foremost Karaite commentator on the bible, and he lived during the ‘Golden Age of Karaism’ in the 10th century. He died sometime in the second half of the 10th century, and so this manuscript, dated between the 10th and 11th century, could feasibly have been copied during his lifetime, or by someone who knew him directly.
9_or_2672_f067r 9_or_2672_f067rSefer ha-Peli’ah, unknown, 1562. Or 2672, ff. 31r and 67r: two folios from ‘Sefer ha-Peli’ah’ (The Book of Wonder), a Kabbalistic biblical commentary
Noc
Heb22. This dataset contains 32 manuscripts from Or 6236 to Stowe Ch 297. As well as several commentaries, a magic spell, and the Revelation of St John in Hebrew translation (Sloane MS 237), this dataset includes six different Jewish marriage certificates (Ketubot) dating from between 1711 and 1835, and a discussion on marriage law from the 15th century (Or 6358).
Stowe Ch 297 is part of the British Library’s fascinating collection of English charters dating to before the expulsion of the Jews in 1290. It is a French quitclaim with a Hebrew docket dating from 1266, in which Beatriz of Rattlesden, the prioress and the convent of Flixton is released from any obligation on the lands she and her convent acquired from Oliver Buscel.
Or 6360 is a 17-18th-century collection of astrological, kabbalistic and magical fragments. It includes ‘Sefer ha-Levanah’, an astrological book about the stages of the moon’s orbit, and ‘Mafteah Shelomoh’, a Hebrew translation of part one of the 14th or 15th-century grimoire ‘Key of Solomon’, one of only two versions that exist in Hebrew (part two, in Or 14759, is in the process of being digitised as part of Phase 2 of the Hebrew Manuscripts Digitisation Project). The text is attributed to King Solomon, and it would have been written originally in Latin or Italian. It includes invocations to summon the dead or demons, and compel them to do the reader’s will. It also includes curses and spells such as for finding stolen items, invisibility, and love.

ANCIENT ROME LIVE:A new way to learn about Rome's past
Ancient Rome Live
Rome’s enduring contribution to world civilization can, and should, be communicated in a way that combines the hard facts, solid reasoning, and new discoveries of university research with the excitement and immediacy of on-location filming in Rome. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a million.

Ancient Rome Live (ARL) is an immersive journey that provides new perspectives about the ancient city. A multi-platform learning experience, ARL first and foremost presents original content:

  • a clickable map of ancient Rome
  • a library of videos arranged according to topic
  • live streaming from sites in Rome and her empire.
ARL provides an interactive platform to engage the many layers of Rome: monuments, people, places, and events.  Ancient Rome Live  is a valuable resource for teachers- and a lot of fun for anyone interested in history.

Later in 2015 ARL will release an ebook, app, and free online course.   WIth all of these new, coordinated formats, ARL will change the way ancient Rome is studied.

The Book of the Dead in 3D

The Book of the Dead in 3D

Every image and piece of text has a purpose...

Egyptian coffins are inscribed with spells and images which stand in for spells. All function together as a machine to resurrect the deceased and to guide them safely through the next world. Given this function, its perhaps surprising that the texts from coffins are usually published completely divorced from their position on the coffin. Any additional meaning conferred on the texts by their placement on the surrogate body or relative to each other and the vignettes is lost. In order to understand a coffin as a magical machine, it's necessary to view the spells in 3D so that this relationship can be taken into account.
The aim of this project is to explore the relationship between texts and their positioning on a magical object through building annotated 3D models of coffins displaying the texts and translations.

Les auteurs et maisons d’édition sont invités à adresser à la Rédaction les ouvrages et tirés-à-part des articles destinés à faire l’objet d’un compte rendu dans la revue.

Numéros ouverts

Notes de la rédactionCe numéro triple d'Abstracta Iranica 37-38-39 s'ouvre quelques mois après la clôture du numéro triple 34-35-36.
Ce nouveau numéro, qui recense les publications de 2014-2015-2016, est comme le précédent un numéro « ouvert » présentant les recensions reçues depuis plusieurs mois et il restera ouvert jusqu'en décembre 2018, date à laquelle démarrera le numéro suivant. Nous espérons ainsi retrouver notre rythme habituel de publications des recensions en résorbant le retard imposé par des éléménts externes et internes à la revue.
Dorénavant, le principe de numéro « ouvert » reste valable pour tous les numéros futures et la mise en ligne sera opérée plusieurs fois par an, par paquet de 100 à 200 comptes rendus. De la sorte les recensions adressées par les contributeurs seront disponibles en ligne quelques mois plus tard.
Plus de visibilité et une plus grande rapidité et, par conséquent, une meilleure diffusion devraient refaire d'Abstracta Iranica une référence indispensable de l'information et de la critique de l'ensemble des publications sur le monde iranien.
