JUIFS ET NABATÉENS:Les monarchies ethniques du Proche-Orient hellénistique et romain
Juifs et Nabatéens
Comment les monarques juifs et nabatéens parvinrent-ils à incarner leur ethnicité ? Quelle était l'identité officiellement assumée par ces souverains ? Par quels moyens l'imagerie officielle affichait-elle l'appartenance à un ethnos particulier, tout en revendiquant, le plus souvent, pour le monarque un statut équivalent aux autres rois contemporains ? Cette ethnicité proclamée, qui semble toujours plus ou moins s'inscrire dans un contexte de bilinguisme culturel, n'était-elle pas fondamen...

HÉRODOTE: Formes de pensée, figures du récit
Jean Alaux (dir.)
Hérodote
Recoupant d'emblée les champs qui seront ceux de la géographie, de l'ethnographie, de l'histoire et même de la philosophie de l'histoire, fascinée à la fois par l'altérité et par la diversité des peuples et des coutumes, l'Enquête hérodotéenne dialogue sans cesse avec les autres genres et les autres modes de pensée que l'Antiquité nous a légués. Après d'autres travaux, individuels et collectifs, ce recueil d'essais a cherché à cerner les modalités et les enjeux de ce dialogue, mais en y aj...

Archeometric analysis of inks from Coptic manuscripts

Institute of Classical Studies

Friday July 19, 2019 at 16:30 in room G34

The main aim of this research project is to record the technological evolution of writing inks in early Christian Egypt. We aim at reconstructing a geo-chronological map displaying the types of ink used in different areas. Our multi-analytical approach consists of different imaging and spectroscopic techniques to detect the composition of black and coloured inks. Once enough data have been collected, we will be able to place in time and space unknown manuscripts. In the meanwhile, our work supports palaeographic and codicological studies, helping distinguish different writing phases on a manuscript or in the reconstruction of ancient libraries.

Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum, Fascicule 10: Athenian Red-Figure Column and Volute Kraters

0
0
Cataloguing some hundred thousand examples of ancient Greek painted pottery held in collections around the world, the authoritative Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum(Corpus of Ancient Vases) is the oldest research project of the Union Académique Internationale. Since the first fascicule appeared in 1922, nearly four hundred volumes have been published by more than 120 collections in 26 countries.

Using the Getty’s digital publishing platform Quire, Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum, Fascicule 10: Athenian Red-Figure Column and Volute Kratersis the tenth volume issued by the J. Paul Getty Museum, and the first ever born-digital publication for the entire Corpus Vasorum Antiquorumproject.

Representing nearly two decades worth of collaboration across Getty departments, this new volume presents a selection of Attic red-figure column and volute kraters ranging from 520 to 510 BCE through the early fourth century CE. Among the works included are a significant dinoid volute krater and a volute krater with the Labors of Herakles that is attributed to the Kleophrades Painter.

Featuring zoomable images and multiple views of every krater, linked bibliographic references, and indices of attributions and subjects, this open-access, custom catalogue, along with its object data, is also available in multiple formats for download, including PDF, MOBI/Kindle, and EPUB. A paperback reference edition will also be available for purchase.

Despoina Tsiafakis earned her doctorate in classical archaeology and the history of art from the University of Thessaloniki. She spent four years as a curatorial assistant in the J. Paul Getty Museum’s Antiquities Department and is presently a faculty member at the “Athena” Research and Innovation Center in Greece.

Landscape and environmental changes at Memphis during the dynastic period in Egypt
Citation
Lourenço Gonçalves, P. M. (2019). Landscape and environmental changes at Memphis during the dynastic period in Egypt (Doctoral thesis). https://doi.org/10.17863/CAM.35048
Abstract
Memphis is considered to have been the main metropolis of dynastic Egypt. For more than 3000 years the settlement played a primary role in political, economic and cultural life of the state, functioning as capital for long periods. Nonetheless, little is known about the setting and archaeology of the city itself, even when compared to other Egyptian settlements. This work investigates the context and archaeology of Memphis, recognising distinctive development phases, and examines potential reasons for historical changes. Sedimentary records of 77 boreholes taken in the area of Mit Rahina are analysed to detect palaeoenvironmental conditions and palaeo-landscape features. Their interpretation is sustained by a multidisciplinary approach drawing together prior archaeological, historical and geomorphological studies. A model reflecting the transformations of Memphis is formulated and multi-scale landscape and environmental changes in the Memphite region over the last 5000 years are established. According to this new model, a settlement was founded during the Early Dynastic Period on a complex of sandbanks which were separated and surrounded by three branches of the Nile. After its foundation and during the Early Dynastic Period and the Old Kingdom, the city grew on the western cluster of sandbanks while the West Channel was losing flow. During the First Intermediate Period and the beginning of the Middle Kingdom extreme floods significantly affected the settlement. It recovered during the Middle Kingdom when large-scale landscape management initiatives and strong interventions on the margins of the Central Channel were undertaken. By the New Kingdom, the Middle Birka was already dry land, mainly as a result of human intervention. The East Channel became the only active branch of the Nile serving the city and the Eastern Koms were intensively settled. In the Late Period the city had expanded to the Northern Koms and the North Birka silted up. During the Ptolemaic Period, the city reached its maximum extension, despite important changes in its status and social-economic background. Subsequently, the importance of the city declined with the end of the dynastic state, while the East Channel started to migrate slowly eastward. The city decayed and was abandoned after a few centuries. Some landscape and environmental changes are positively associated both with urban mutation and with different social, economic and political phases of Memphis’ history. Human interventions actively induced the evolution of both landscape and local environment. Events at the supra-regional level, both natural and especially anthropic, also had impact and are linked to changes at Memphis. Conversely, contingencies restricted to the Memphite region influenced the development of the state. Local situations at Memphis—e.g., crisis, disaster, conflict, prosperity, or affluence—could be magnified to the extent that they have been perceived as having affected the state as a whole. The foundation and development of Memphis were tightly interconnected with the fortunes of state and power. The city embodied the cultural and political identity of the state and maintained its prominence through dynastic Egyptian history. Triangular complex cause–effect relations between local changes in Memphis, historical change in Egypt, and climatic and environmental evolution both at regional and supra-regional scales are recognised. The significance of each varied with time, determining the evolution of Memphis and also of dynastic Egypt.

Laboratoire d'Analyse Statistique des Langues Anciennes
Fondé à l’Université de Liège en novembre 1961, le Laboratoire d’Analyse Statistique des Langues Anciennes (LASLA) est le premier centre de recherche à avoir étudié les langues classiques – grecque et latine – en recourant aux technologies du traitement automatique de l’information.
Unité facultaire de recherche en langues et littératures classiques de la Faculté de Philosophie et Lettres de l’Université de Liège, le LASLA a pour mission :
  • L’étude approfondie des langues et littératures grecque et latine en recourant aux techniques informatiques et aux méthodes statistiques et quantitatives.
  • La constitution de banques de données littéraires et d’outils informatiques visant à leur diffusion et à leur exploitation via tous les médias disponibles.
  • L’organisation de colloques et d’échanges dans ces domaines.
Fidèle aux objectifs qu’il s’était assigné lors de sa fondation, le LASLA a rassemblé dans des fichiers informatiques de nombreuses œuvres latines antiques, de Plaute à Ausone, ainsi que des textes de la littérature grecque classique.

Ancient Lives: Uncover the past through ancient manuscripts
Ancient Lives logo
Ancient Lives launched in 2011 as the first effort to enlist volunteers across the world to help transcribe papyrus fragments—fragments of texts on a form of paper used in the ancient Mediterranean world. The project was initiated with the Oxyrhynchus collection, a vast trove of papyrus fragments discovered in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This collection includes literature, legal documents, and personal letters from Egypt during the millennium when it was ruled by the successors of Alexander the Great and then the Romans (3rd c. BCE - 7th c. CE).
The current batch of papyri belongs to the Egypt Exploration Society, and their texts will eventually be published and numbered in the Society's Greco-Roman Memoirs series in the volumes entitled The Oxyrhynchus Papyri. In this latest version of the project, we will integrate additional collections of fragments over time and have adapted the keyboard to allow transcription in Coptic, the language of early Christian Egypt, as well as in Greek.

      •  Major photo update: 429 new photos belonging to several ARET and MEE volumes have been added to the database. This update makes all photos presently published in print volumes available on-line. 
      • User interface improvements: the label of the text being browsed now appears as name of the browser's windows/tab (useful if one has several tabs open); filtered data tables now keep track of the last known state (no need to re-apply the filter after clicking on a link); minor internal fixes.

      At present, EbDA not only provides the largest number of Ebla texts available on line, including hundreds of corrections and harmonized transliterations, but also one of the most advanced search engine for
      cuneiform documents, thanks to the ability to represent non-linear sequences of text, built-in graphemic queries (search for a sequence of sign names regardless of their reading in context), support to regular expressions, and extensive bibliography.

      The Ebla Digital Archives project is based at, and funded by Ca' Foscari University of Venice, with the collaboration of Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Roma.

      An interdisciplinary essay collection from an international group of experts
      For several decades sociologists and cultural anthropologists have intensively researched the role of the senses in a variety of cultures, and their studies show how diverse cultures understand and evaluate the five or more senses differently. In this collection of eighteen essays, biblical and ancient Near Eastern scholars, as well as cultural anthropologists, apply the questions and methods from anthropological and sociological studies to Israel, Mesopotamia, and Egypt. Experts offer insights into the meaning of the senses in the ancient world, examining the classical senses (seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, tasting) as well as other senses (such as kinesthesis and the sense of balance) and sense-related issues (such as disgust, sensory imagination, and disabilities). This collection provides a stimulus and a basis for students and scholars to explore the senses in the ancient Near East.
      Features
      • Exploration of the relationship between sensory experience and reasoning
      • Assessments of how theory and practice of the senses relate to each other
      • Essays examining connections between emotions and senses

      Asia Anteriore Antice: Journal of Ancient Near Eastern Cultures (AsiAna)
      ISSN: 2611-8912
      Page Header Logo
      Asia Anteriore Antica (AsiAnA) is an international Journal of Ancient Near Eastern Cultures studies founded and edited by scholars of different disciplines and approaches (philology, linguistics, history, archaeology), and cooperating in common researches and field projects based on an interdisciplinary perspective. 
      FOCUS
      Asia Anteriore Antica (AsiAnA) focuses on the variegated scenario of the emergence, development and crises of the ancient Near East cultures analysed in the plurality of their distinct and intertwining characters, languages, writing and literacy, administration and material culture, arts and politics, economy and trade, ideology and religion. All these lements shaped a civilization which strongly impacted on the history of the ancient world.  Exploring this plurality of issues from different perspectives can add to our understanding of the social dynamics and the spatial and chronological trajectories that forged the Near Eastern cultures over a long duration. 
      AIM
      Asia Anteriore Antica (AsiAnA) will present studies in different disciplines, Hittitology, Assyriology, Semitistics, History, Archaeology and Art History of the ancient Near East aiming to diffuse the results of researches such as excavation reports, edition of epigraphic sources, studies on philological data, visual arts, archaeology and archaeometry. With the intent of confronting different scientific voices of these disciplines and crossing their traditional borders the journal will supply a handy tool of scholarly information on various subjects, open to the international debate and innovative theoretical issues.

      Abstract:

      The 28th congress had a remarkably high concentration of restorers and scientists when compared with previous editions. While digital tools and databases have been present for a while, perhaps the most noteworthy developments encountered in recent times are those belonging to the “material turn”. Taking as a starting point the increasingly necessary presence of archaeology in our discipline, the community has realised that applying the same approaches and methodologies used in other types of archaeological findings may provide invaluable information to contextualise the papyri, which has been one the major challenges of Papyrology from its very beginning. Thus, the study of the chemical composition of the inks used to write our documents, or the condition of the papyrus support from a physicochemical point of view, are enriching papyrological methodologies for providing not only chronological, but also environmental and geographical context. In this respect, both the conservation of papyrus collections and subsequent reflection on the protocols of interaction with the material acquire particular importance: the papyri are no longer just a support for texts, they also carry information within their physicality intimately related to those texts which we ought to preserve, too. The current political climate has also had an impact in our field. The market of antiquities, being a natural place for the trade of papyrus documents, shares many of the same concerns and discussions that today are affecting the archeological and art historical fields. In the recent years, associations of papyrologists have issued ethical codes or guidelines as recommendations on how to deal with papyrology. If it is true that papyrologists can contribute greatly to the understanding of the ancient world, and, in this manner, propose methods of interpreting and resolving problems that we face in our present day, it is also true that we cannot ignore practices that we would otherwise find unacceptable just for the sake of bringing to light new documents.
