Princeton University, Research Photographs, Archaeological Archives
The archaeological archives consist of unique photographic and textual documentation generated by over 100 years of expeditions and excavations conducted and sponsored by Princeton University. In addition to the primary corpus of photographs, glass plate and film negatives, drawings, there are supplementary materials such as journals, field notebooks trench reports and other ancillary records. Together these collections form a singular archive manifesting Princeton’s continued participation in and sponsorship of excavations, a tradition that began in 1899 with Howard Crosby Butler’s first expedition to Syria and continues with the excavations at Balis in central Syria.

PhD Research in Assyriology: Showcasing the next generation of scholars in the history, archaeology, and languages of the ancient Near East
Welcome to PhD Research in Assyriology! This site exists to promote the research being carried out by PhD students in the field of Assyriology. What’s that? It’s a broad term that covers all scholarly fields related to the study of the ancient Near East in the time of the cuneiform cultures. That means the time between the fourth millennium BCE and the first century AD, in the historical regions of Mesopotamia, Syria and the Levant, Iran, and Anatolia. Assyriology includes the history, archaeology, and art history of the ancient Near East, as well as its languages: Sumerian, Akkadian (Babylonian and Assyrian), Hittite, Elamite, Hurrian, and others.

PhD Research in Assyriology is an initiative of the International Association for Assyriology (IAA). To find out more about “Assyriology”, the IAA, our annual conference (the “Rencontre” or “RAI”), or to hear the latest news, please visit the IAA website. If you like what we do, please consider joining the IAA. Your support helps us offer a range of prizes and awards to make life a little less difficult for students and early career scholars, and to celebrate their successes.

ToposText 2.1.5 for Android is out as of May 10, 2019, fixing a crash Android users have been suffering
ToposText is an indexed collection of ancient texts and mapped places relevant the the history and mythology of the ancient Greeks from the Neolithic period up through the 2nd century CE. It was inspired by two decades of exploring Greece by car, foot, or bicycle, and by clumsy efforts to appreciate επί τόπου the relevant information from Pausanias or other primary sources. The development of mobile electronic devices since 2010 has coincided with an increasingly comprehensive assortment of ancient texts available on the internet. The digital texts I collected on an e-reader in 2012 made clear both the pleasure of having a portable Classics library but also the desperate need to organize the information it contained. Discovering the Pleiades Project, with its downloadable database of thousands of ancient place names and coordinates, opened the door to indexing ancient texts geographically, using a map of Greece as the basic interface.
ToposText was designed as an application for mobile devices. Opening it presents a scrolling alphabetical list of 5000+ Greek cities, colonies, sanctuaries, archaeological sites, museums, and other points of interest, side-by-side with a location-aware map showing the nearby places by name, icon (city, sanctuary, theatre, etc), and the number of ancient references in the TT database. The texts and index and a basic map are stored on the device and requires no internet connection.
Selecting a site from either the list or the map opens up a table of two-line snippets from ancient authors, headed where available by a modern description. Selecting from this index list, which can be filtered by date, genre, and relevance, connects one to the full text of 240-odd works in English translation, some with the original Ancient Greek as well. Thus, at a glance and from any location, you can select and read the passages in ancient literature that give a place its historical and cultural meaning. While you are reading, the map alongside shows the location of the ancient places mentioned. In most cases, book and paragraph numbers of texts correspond to those conventionally used in printed texts. Where the online text available had no internal numbering, arbitrary paragraph numbering has been added. A scrolling feature hidden in the right margin allows rapid navigation through the books and chapters of a given text...

Network for the Study of Esotericism in Antiquity (NSEA)

Network for the Study of Esotericism in Antiquity (NSEA)
Ancient Esotericism.org is the website for the Network for the Study of Ancient Esotericism (NSEA), a thematic network associated with the European Society for the Study of Western Esotericism (ESSWE). NSEA specializes in the study of esoteric phenomena of the ancient period and provides contact for specialists of ancient esoteric thought, history, and literature.
This website is intended as a resource for scholars and students. While the ancient sources (Gnostic, theurgic, Neoplatonic, Hermetic, etc.) of Western Esotericism possess enormous importance for the development of esoteric currents from the fourteenth century onwards, there remains only a minimum of interaction between the antiquity experts and their (proto)-modern colleagues. The Network therefore is intended to 1) introduce scholarship on ancient esotericism to students of Western Esotericism, 2) serve as a forum in which to exchange ideas, notes and references, etc. outside of other professional bodies which are not concerned with esotericism per se, 3) to coordinate study and workshops with other working groups on the subject, such as the Society of Biblical Literature’s Section on Mysticism, Esotericism, and Gnosticism in Antiquity, and 4) (and most importantly) to provide a junction of the many resources online that can serve as aids in the study of this fascinating and difficult material (dictionaries, textual corpora, blogs, etc.).
NSEA Directors:
Dylan M. Burns, Freie Universität Berlin
Sarah L. Veale, York University
For more information, please contact Dylan M. Burns.
The website was designed by Sarah L. Veale. For questions about the website, including corrections and additions, please contact Sarah L Veale.

Monumenta rariora: La Fortuna dela Stattuaria Antica nei Repertori a Stampa - The Reception of Antique Statuary in Collections of Engravings

Monumenta rariora: La Fortuna dela Stattuaria Antica nei Repertori a Stampa - The Reception of Antique Statuary in Collectionsof Engravings
Il progetto prevede la realizzazione di un corpus di repertori di incisioni a stampa sulla statuaria antica la cui gestione informatizzata permetta una fruizione ottimale e contestualizzata dei testi che lo costituiscono, in genere di difficile reperimento.

Il lavoro è stato strutturato su due fronti differenti ma correlati: da una parte la considerazione dell'oggetto rappresentato da un punto di vista archeologico e della sua storia collezionistica, dall'altra lo studio dell'incisione finalizzato alla determinazione di vari rapporti intercorrenti all'interno delle tradizioni culturali che afferiscono all'opera medesima.

La creazione di una base di dati scientificamente sostenibile, rigorosa e continuamente aggiornabile, si accompagna ad un sistema di utilizzo che permette agevolmente l'intera fruizione e che fornisce all'utente la possibilità di seguire dei personali "itinerari" di ricerca.

L'analisi e' partita approfondendo due raccolte:


- François Perrier, Segmenta nobilium signorum et statuarum que temporis dentem invidium evasere, Roma-Parigi, 1638
   
- Paolo Alessandro Maffei, Raccolta di statue antiche e moderne data in luce da Domenico de Rossi, Roma, 1704 (successive edizioni Roma, 1742; Roma 1825).

3D Interactive Tour of the Harvard Semitic Museum
Harvard Semitic Museum
By housing ancient Near Eastern exhibitions, The Harvard Semitic Museum explores the rich history of cultures connected by the family of Semitic languages. Exhibitions include a full-scale replica of an ancient Israelite home, life sized casts of famous Mesopotamian monuments, authentic mummy coffins, and tablets containing the earliest forms of writing. Like the artifacts it displays, the museum itself has a rich and nuanced history.
The Harvard Semitic Museum was founded in 1889, and moved into its present location in 1903. From the beginning, it was the home of the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, a departmental library, a repository for research collections, a public educational institute, and a center for archaeological exploration. Among the Museum's early achievements were the first scientific excavations in the Holy Land (at Samaria in 1908-1910) and excavations at Nuzi and Serabit el-Khadim in the Sinai, where the earliest alphabet was found. During World War II, the Museum housed Naval offices and was closed to the public. In the 1970's, academic activities resumed in the Semitic Museum, which is again home to the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, and to the University's collections of Near Eastern archaeological artifacts. These artifacts comprise over 40,000 items, including pottery, cylinder seals, sculpture, coins and cuneiform tablets. Many are from museum-sponsored excavations in Israel, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt, Cyprus, and Tunisia. The Museum remains dedicated to the use of these collections for the teaching, research, and publication of Near Eastern archaeology, history, and culture.

Interfaces: A Journal of Medieval European Literatures
ISSN: 2421-5503
The Journal Interfacesopens an interdisciplinary and multilingual forum for the study of medieval European literatures. These literatures are broadly conceived as the products of the interconnected textual cultures which flourished between Late Antiquity and the Renaissance in a region extending from the North Atlantic to the Eastern Mediterranean. Interfaces envisages the study of the textual culture of medieval Europe as situated at the intersection of a number of modern disciplines, including history, literature, philology, codicology, philosophy, sociolinguistics, and theology.

Contributions are invited which cross linguistic or disciplinary boundaries in the recognition that the vitality of medieval texts in present-day scholarship and culture demands a space not confined by single philologies, national research traditions, confessions, or disciplinary canons. Interfaces strives to combine methodological questioning of hermeneutic and didactic practices with the opening up of new common themes, new connections between literatures, and new transdisciplinary conceptualisations of the modern understanding of medieval literatures, including regional and global challenges to claims of European unity.

It is the ambition of Interfaces to publish the best new scholarship which will contribute to a redefining of how the medieval textual heritage Europe is read, researched, taught and disseminated in the 21st century. European medieval civilization – of which Greek, Hebrew, Slavonic, and Arabic textual cultures form an integral but often neglected part – will continue to be an important source of cultural identity in a globalised world and the global perspectives of the 21st century impel us to ask new questions of the medieval past. The changing forms and technologies of literature and historical writing in the present also urges us to engage with pre-modern writing in new ways. The texts transmitted to us from the Middle Ages and how we read them are a crucial site for negotiating the relationship between modernity and the past.

Interfaces will promote new types of high quality scholarship as well as make the case for the historical, intellectual, and aesthetic value of the literatures of a broadly conceived medieval Europe.

Biblical Creatures: The Animal as an Object of Interpretation in Pre-Modern Christian and Jewish Hermeneutic Traditions

This issue of Interfaces explores the question of how Jewish and Christian authors in pre-modern Latin Europe thought and wrote about some of the animals mentioned in the Bible. To them, thinking about animals was a way of thinking about what it means to be human, to perceive the world, and to worship God and his creation. Animals' nature, animals' actions and animals' virtues or shortcomings were used as symbols and metaphors for describing human behavior, human desires, human abilities and disabilities, and positive or negative inclinations or traits of character.
Both Christian and Jewish medieval and early modern scholars wondered about how they could possibly delve into the deeper layers of meaning they assumed any textual or extra-textual animal to convey. Not surprisingly, they often had to deal with the fact that a specific animal was of interest to members of both religious communities. A comparison between Jewish and Christian ways of reading and interpreting biblical passages featuring animals shows what the two hermeneutic traditions had in common, what separated them, and how they influenced each other, depending on the historical context in which the authors worked.
The papers in this issue of Interfaces cover a wide range of animal species, such as the dove, the stag, the unicorn, the elephant, the crocodile, the lion, the hyena, the raven, the hare, and the dog as medieval and early modern authors and illuminators portrayed and interpreted them. Since several themes come up in more than one paper concerning different kinds of animals, this issue groups its papers in three sections. These sections deal with divine creatures (mediators between humankind and God, symbols for the human believer, agents of heaven); exotic creatures (animals in different parts of the world, encounters between humans and animals in past times, animals with extraordinary appearances and properties); and social creatures (transgressive and pious animals, animals used to demonstrate obedience or to facilitate transgression, animals as symbols for conflict or cooperation).

Mit der arabischen Eroberung Ägyptens änderte sich zunächst wenig für die einheimische Bevölkerung.
Die Ausstellung "Christen und Muslime am Nil" (28. April - 16. Juli 2017) im Universitätsmuseum Heidelberg zeigte anhand griechischer, koptischer und arabischer Papyri und archäologischer Objekte Veränderungen und Kontinuitäten innerhalb der früharabischen Zeit Ägyptens im Vergleich zur ausgehenden byzantinischen Epoche. Untersucht wurden unter anderem Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede bei Glaube und Jenseitsvorstellungen, das Alltagsleben mit seinen Aspekten Ernährung und Kleidung sowie Veränderungen in den Verwaltungsstrukturen.

Universitätsmuseum Heidelberg – Kataloge
Das Universitätsmuseum ist das "Schaufenster der Universität": Neben Einblicken in aktuelle Forschungen an der Ruperto Carola - von Affen bis Zellteilung - bieten die Ausstellungen auch Ergebnisse von Lehrveranstaltungen und Beiträge bürgerschaftlicher Gruppen zu universitären Themen. Vielfach dokumentieren Begleitbände diese Studioausstellungen; sie erscheinen in der Reihe "Universitätsmuseum Heidelberg. Kataloge". Ursprünglich als "Ausstellung zum Mitnehmen" für das Ausstellungspublikum konzipiert, sind die Kataloge dank der Online-Publikation nun weiten Kreisen zugänglich. Konzentriert und übersichtlich bieten sie Fachleuten, die nach selten publizierten Objekten und Archivalien suchen, ebenso spannende Lektüre wie Laien, die sich einen schnellen Überblick über ein ungewöhnliches Thema verschaffen möchten.

Licht! 
Lampen von der Antike bis zur Neuzeit. Begleitheft zur Ausstellung

Universitätsmuseum Heidelberg – Kataloge, Band 4
Eine ungewöhnlich große Zahl von römischen Lampen ist in einem der größten bisher in Süddeutschland ergrabenen römischen Friedhöfe in Heidelberg zutage getreten und wird gerade von Andreas Hensen publiziert. Wie er feststellte, hat den Ausdruck „Lychnologie“ für die Lampenforschung vor fast zwei Jahrhunderten der Heidelberger Professor für Klassische Philologie und Archäologe Friedrich Creuzer geprägt. So ist es durchaus passend, dass die Internationale Lychnologie-Gesellschaft (ILA) ihren dritten internationalen Kongress im September 2009 in Heidelberg, der Geburtsstadt der Lychnologie, veranstaltet. Aus diesem Anlass haben wir in interdisziplinärer Zusammenarbeit von klassischer, provinzialrömischer und mittelalterlicher Archäologie in einem Seminar im Wintersemester 2008/09 diese kleine Ausstellung vorbereitet.

Ägyptische Magie im Wandel der Zeiten 
Eine Ausstellung des Instituts für Papyrologie in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Institut für Ägyptologie der Universität Heidelberg

Universitätsmuseum Heidelberg – Kataloge, Band 5
Das Institut für Papyrologie der Universität Heidelberg kann sich rühmen, in seiner Sammlung eines der bedeutendsten Corpora magischer Papyri weltweit zu besitzen. Die kleine, aber feine Gruppe von Pergamenten in koptischer Sprache, die wohl um die Jahrtausendwende entstanden und häufig mit Zeichnungen ausgestattet sind, wurde zusammen mit der in einem Papiercodex erhaltenen Kyprianlegende bereits 1934 in dem von Adolf Grohmann und Friedrich Bilabel herausgegebenen Band “Griechische, koptische und arabische Texte zur Religion und religiösen Literatur in Ägyptens Spätzeit” vorgelegt. Darin wurde auch der “soeben geglückte Erwerb” zweier einzigartiger Zauberbücher vermeldet, von denen das eine seit 1945 jedoch als verschollen galt. Einer der renommiertesten Forscher auf diesem Gebiet, P. Angelicus Kropp, konnte den Text aufgrund einer früheren Abschrift immerhin noch im Jahr 1966 publizieren, doch schien P. Heid. Kopt. inv. 686 (zuvor P. Heid. inv. 1686) für immer verloren.

Himjar 
Das vergessene Reich in Südarabien

Universitätsmuseum Heidelberg – Kataloge, Band 7
Vor gut drei Jahrzehnten präsentierte eine kleine Ausstellung des Römisch-Germanischen Zentralmuseums in Mainz die Ergebnisse mehrjähriger Restaurierungsarbeit an den Überresten von zwei – wie sich dabei herausstellte – fast zweieinhalb Meter hohen Königsfiguren, die im klassischen Kontrapost wie Heroenstatuen dargestellt waren, signiert von einem griechischen Künstler Phokas. Schlagartig stellte sich damit ein bis dahin den meisten Archäologen und Historikern noch völlig unbekanntes altsüdarabisches Königreich im heutigen Jemen vor – und versank danach wieder weitgehend in Vergessenheit.

Leben Dinge Texte 
Begleitheft zur Ausstellung des Sonderforschungsbereichs 933 „Materiale Textkulturen“

Universitätsmuseum Heidelberg – Kataloge, Band 10
Die Ausstellung „LEBEN DINGE TEXTE“ stellt Dinge vor, auf denen etwas geschrieben steht. Die Exponate stammen aus Gesellschaften vor der Erfindung des Buchdrucks: Keilschrifttafeln aus Mesopotamien, antike Graffiti, magische Papyrus-Amulette, gestempelte Dachziegeln, eine Hundeleine mit Edelstein-Inschrift - an solchen 'schrifttragenden Artefakten' kann untersucht werden, wie sich Beschreibstoffe auf die Bedeutung der Texte auswirken und umgekehrt. Außerdem zeigt sich, wie Schrift nicht nur gelesen wird, sondern vielfältig mit Handlungen verbunden und in Rituale eingebettet war.
Der Sonderforschungsbereich 933 „Materiale Textkulturen“ zeigt in dieser Ausstellung Zwischenergebnisse seiner Arbeit. Der SFB 933 wird von der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft gefördert und vereint über 50 Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler der Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg und der Hochschule für Jüdische Studien Heidelberg.

ACTA
Revista Muzeului Judeţean de Istorie şi Artă Zalău, Acta Mvsei Porolissensis a fost editată începând cu anul 1977, odată cu împlinirea a 25 de ani de la înfiinţarea muzeului, având ca scop principal valorificarea şi promovarea patrimoniului cultural al  judeţului Sălaj, în particular, şi al Transilvaniei în general. În acord cu profilul multidisciplinar al instituţiei muzeale, revista a fost structurată pe câteva domenii ale cercetării ştiinţifice: arheologie, conservare-restaurare, istorie, etnografie şi artă. În decursul apariţie sale au existat volume tematice care au reunit lucrări prezentate la manifestări cu caracter naţional sau internaţional, organizate de instituţia noastră. În paginile revistei se regăsesc studii semnate de personalităţi marcante ale cercetării româneşti: Eugen Chirilă, Nicolae Chidioşan, Gheorghe Lazarovici, Nicolae Gudea, Al. V. Matei,  Istvan Ferenczi, Nicolae Edroiu, Ioan Bolovan, Cornel Grad, Constanţa Cristescu, Paul Petrescu, Marius Porumb.

În noul context creat de imperativele  cercetării ştiinţifice, revista îşi propune să extindă sfera colaborărilor pentru a da un plus de valoare acestui demers editorial.
