Early Warnings: Digitized Chester Beatty papyri

CHESTER BEATTY PAPYRI AT CSNTM!
Press Release
17 September 2013
The Chester Beatty papyri, published in the 1930s and 1950s, are some of the oldest and most important biblical manuscripts known to exist. Housed at the Chester Beatty Library (CBL) in Dublin, they have attracted countless visitors every year. It is safe to say that the only Greek biblical manuscripts that might receive more visitors are Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Alexandrinus, both on display at the British Library.

The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM) is pleased to announce that a six-person team, in a four-week expedition during July–August 2013, digitized all the Greek biblical papyri at the Chester Beatty Library. The CBL has granted permission to CSNTM to post the images on their website (www.csntm.org), which will happen before the end of the year.

Main Entrance to the Chester Beatty Library
















The New Testament papyri at the CBL include the oldest manuscript of Paul’s letters (dated c. AD 200), the oldest manuscript of Mark’s Gospel and portions of the other Gospels and Acts (third century), and the oldest manuscript of Revelation (third century). One or two of the Old Testament papyri are as old as the second century AD.
Using state-of-the-art digital equipment, CSNTM photographed each manuscript against white and black backgrounds. The result was stunning. Each image is over 120 megabytes. The photographs reveal some text that has not been seen before.

Besides the papyri, CSNTM also digitized all of the Greek New Testament manuscripts at the CBL as well as several others, including some early apocryphal texts. The total number of images came to more than 5100.

CSNTM is grateful to the CBL for the privilege of digitizing these priceless treasures. Their staff were extremely competent and a joy to work with. Kudos to Dr. Fionnuala Croke, Director of CBL, for such a superb staff! This kind of collaboration is needed both for the preservation of biblical manuscripts and their accessibility by scholars.

The American Institute of Iranian Studies Annual Newsletter
The American Institute of Iranian Studies (AIIrS) is a non-profit consortium of US universities and museums, founded in 1967, for the purpose of promoting the interdisciplinary study of Iranian civilization and US-Iran cultural dialogue. Its trustees are scholars of Iranian Studies representing the member institutions and serving voluntarily. In the belief that person-to-person connections are essential for fostering mutual understanding, AIIrS serves as the main conduit for academic and cultural exchange between Iran and the US. It is the only organization in the country dedicated to funding research in Iranian Studies. Its purview comprises the historical Iranian world of Central Asia, the Middle East and South Asia as well as the modern political state of Iran. The Institute’s grants and programs, including language training, research grants for pre-doctoral students and for senior American and Iranian scholars, and conference support, aim to create and maintain expertise on an important geographical region and interest in bi-national cooperation. Opportunities for direct contact invigorate the academic resource base and increase the depth of knowledge in the field. The larger objectives of AIIrS are to represent American institutions of higher education and research in the field of Iranian Studies, and to promote the study of Iran as a significant component of global history, thereby exposing new generations of students and scholars to Iran, Tajikistan and the wider the Persianate world.

6 Questions About Your Open Access Journal

0
0
This is a series of six question we would like those of you who have some responsibility for the production of an open access journal to try to answer. Please respond in the comments below. Thanks!
  1. How Open Access is your journal? 100%? Backfile only? Occasional free issues? Online only, or can readers download and share files?
  2. What kind of Open Access is your journal (green or gold)?
  3. How do you pay for making your journal Open Access? Do you charge authors an Open Access fee upon publication of their work? Do you receive support from your sponsoring organization/institution? Is it covered by membership fees? Do you have an endowment? Something else?
  4. Has your journal always been Open Access? If not, did your journal/institution take a financial hit when making your content (some or all of it) Open Access?
  5. Once your journal became Open Access, has its availability in libraries grown, decreased, or remained about the same?
  6. Now that your journal is Open Access, do you still produce a print edition? If so, is that also free to readers, or do they pay for a subscription for print?

Open Access Journal: Relegere: Studies in Religion and Reception

 [Originally posted 29 August 2010.  Most recently updated 19 September 2013]

Relegere: Studies in Religion and Reception 
ISSN: 1179-7231
Relegere has been established to promote and disseminate academic research on reception history, broadly understood, both within and across religious traditions.
Relegere publishes studies of the transmission, reception, and effect of religion ideas, narratives, and images, within any medium - including but not limited to oral tradition, literature, drama, poetry, film, television, digital media, and the plastic arts - in relation to any group, sub-group, or individual in any religious tradition at any point in history.
The journal has been founded on the conviction that the study of reception and religion must not limit itself to a mere cataloguing of influence or a simple recounting of the trajectories of foundational religious texts across time. Beyond this basic research, reception history needs to be more thoroughly understood on a conceptual and theoretical level; reception history must actively interrogate the taken-for-granted idea that foundational texts are somehow fixed, that their essential natures can be distinguished from their subsequent reception.
In pursuit of this goal, Relegere actively encourages methodological, theoretical, and philosophical contributions relevant to reception history and religion, whether in relation to particular case studies or as stand-alone theoretical reflections.  Through the production of a coherent body of theoretical and practical reflection by and for scholars in very different fields and with very different interests, it is our hope that such an approach will facilitate a fruitful and ongoing discussion among scholars.

                                        Theatrum
                                        Die Website www.theatrum.de ist als Internetprojekt aus den Aktivitäten zur Erforschung des römischen Theaters von Mogontiacum-Mainz hervorgegangen. Ziel ist, in kurzer Form Basisinformationen zu allen bekannten Theatern der griechisch-römischen Antike zusammenzustellen. So soll ein schneller Zugang zu den Fragen hergestellt werden, was über das Aussehen eines Theaters bekannt ist und was dort veranstaltet wurde – jeweils streng orientiert an der historischen und archäologischen Überlieferung jedes einzelnen Baues. 

                                        Die antiken Theater waren öffentliche Räume, die bei den großen Feierlichkeiten ihrer Gemeinden im Blickpunkt der gesamten Gesellschaft standen. Hier fanden im fest gefügten Ablauf sakraler Feste nach Opfern und Prozessionen für die Götter oder den Herrscher Bühnenaufführungen unterschiedlicher Art statt. Wer als Mitglied der Gesellschaft diesen Feiern beiwohnte, nahm auch an den Bühnenaufführungen teil und so erklärt sich die nach heutigen Maßstäben enorme Zuschauerkapazität der Theaterbauten. Die mit dem griechischen Wort Euergetismus bezeichnete Wohltätigkeit führender Gesellschaftsmitglieder ermöglichte erst den Bau solch komplexer Anlagen. Als Gegenleistung für diese als Verpflichtung empfundene Großzügigkeit gewährte die Gemeinde dem Spender Ehrenstandbilder im Theater und verewigte ihn bis auf unsere Tage für die Nachwelt. Hiermit ging die Verehrung von Göttern und Herrschern einher, die in jedem Theater ihren Ausdruck in Form einer statuarischen Ausstattung fand.
                                        Die großen, weithin bekannten Spiele wurden von professionell ausgebildeten Akteuren besucht, deren Erfolge in den Agonen vor allem des griechischen Ostens auf zahlreichen Inschriften aufgelistet wurden. Vielfach machten Münzprägungen Namen und Preise von Spielen im ganzen Reich bekannt. Halten griechische Inschriften den Ablauf von Feiern penibel fest, so teilen uns die lateinischen Inschriften des Westens genau mit, wie viel Geld Spiele (ludi scaenici) oder Baumaßnahmen kosteten und wer diese bezahlte. Unterschiede und Gemeinsamkeiten des Theaterwesens im griechischen Osten und dem lateinischen Westen werden deutlich, ebenso wie regionale Besonderheiten etwa der gallo-römischen Theater oder der orientalischen Kult-Theater. 

                                        All diese Informationsstränge werden unter den Kategorien
                                        Maße,
                                        Bau-Inschriften,
                                        Inschriften des Theaters,
                                        Schriftquellen,
                                        Beschreibung,
                                        Ausstattung,
                                        Literatur und
                                        Veranstaltungen
                                        in einer Weise festgehalten, dass sie sowohl für den Wissenschaftler als auch für den interessierten Laien von Interesse sind. Daher werden viele antike Texte in deutscher Übersetzung geboten.

                                        Die vollständige Komplexität eines Theaterbaues vor Augen zu führen ist ein anspruchsvolles Ziel, das die Autoren dieser Seiten aus Gründen des Arbeitsaufwandes nicht vollständig einlösen können. Dies mag bereits der unterschiedliche Bearbeitungsstand der verschiedenen Theaterbauten deutlich machen, ist aber auch dadurch evident, dass sich gewöhnlich Wissenschaftler unterschiedlicher Disziplinen mit dieser Thematik auseinandersetzen: Klassische Philologen, Althistoriker, Epigraphiker, Numismatiker, Archäologen, Bauforscher und Theaterwissenschaftler. Daher soll diese Seite als Plattform verstanden werden, die nach und nach ausgebaut, verbessert und wenn nötig berichtigt werden soll. Beiträge auswärtiger Autoren sind hierfür ausdrücklich willkommen und wir hoffen, diese Website als lebendiges Forum gestalten zu können: Sei es die Übersetzung einer Inschrift, eines antiken Autors, eine verbesserte Baubeschreibung, ein Artikel zu einer Veranstaltung oder einem weiteren speziellen Problem und schließlich auch die Überlassung geeigneter Photographien: Treten Sie mit uns über das Kontaktformular in Verbindung.

                                        Die Website www.amphi-theatrum.de 

                                        Nach dem Vorbild der Internetseite www.theatrum.de wird ab der Woche 38 im Jahr 2011 bei der Generaldirektion Kulturelles Erbe Rheinland-Pfalz, Landesarchäologie Mainz die webside www.amphi-theatrum.de aufgebaut werden. Sie wendet sich an Wissenschaftler und interessierte Laien und wird bis auf Weiteres mit vermehrten Inhalten gefüllt werden.

                                        Die Seite entspringt dem Wunsch, die diesbezüglichen Informationen zu dem noch nicht entdeckten Amphitheater in Mainz zu sichten, durch die Bereitstellung eines Umfangreichen Vergleichsmaterials die Plausibilität der Forderung seiner ehemaligen Existenz in Mainz nachvollziehbar zu machen und notwendigen Ergänzungen der theatrum-Seite gerade im Bereich der „Veranstaltungen“ adäquaten Raum zu geben.
                                        Je nach Überlieferungssituation sollen die Kategorien

                                        -          Bauinschriften
                                        -          Beschreibung
                                        -          Ausstattung und Funktionsweise
                                        -          Funde
                                        -          Literatur
                                        -          Veranstaltungen
                                        -          archäologische Reflexe des Veranstaltungswesens

                                        dargestellt werden. Dabei ergab sich die Notwendigkeit, auch Orte mit wichtigen archäologischen Zeugnissen zum Gladiatorenwesen in die topographische Ordnung mit aufzunehmen, selbst dann, wenn sie kein Amphitheater besitzen.

                                        Neben die Säule der topographischen Ordnung wird nun auch eine stärker ausgebaute inhaltliche Säule gestellt mit einem umfangreicheren Glossar als es bisher bei theatrum besteht, einer Textsammlung der kaiserlichen Politik zu diesem Themenbereich, einer allgemeinen Bibliographie und einer link-Sammlung, die nicht allein historische und archäologische Quellen erschließen, sondern auch zu den Seiten des sog. re-enactment führt, jenen immer zahlreicher werdenden praktischen Aktivitäten zum historisch möglichst genauen Nachspielen antiker Gladiatorenkämpfe.

                                        Textbeiträge auswärtiger Kollegen sind im Sinne einer Qualitätsverbesserung ausdrücklich erwünscht. Auch für die Überlassung von Bildern sind wir dankbar. Herkunft der überlassenen Texte und Bilder werden deutlich gekennzeichnet.

                                        http://www.mnhn.fr/museum/front/medias/publication/26331_AB_00_copie.jpg
                                        La revue Anthropobotanica a été créée en 2009 pour répondre aux besoins d'une communauté de chercheurs issus de disciplines très différentes (archéologie, ethnologie, histoire, sociologie, linguistique, biologie, botanique) mais travaillant tous sur l'histoire des relations entre l'homme et le monde végétal. Le but était d'initier un dialogue interdisciplinaire, d'établir des synergies entre les différentes approches méthodologiques. Ce faisant, le collectif de chercheurs qui participait à ce mouvement éditorial officialisait l'ouverture d'un nouveau champ de connaissance, celui de l'anthropobotanique.

                                        Les relations naturelles et culturelles entre l'homme et le monde végétal constituent, en effet, une expression de l'histoire des sociétés et des cultures d'autant plus forte que beaucoup de végétaux sont de véritables acteurs de l'Histoire, des protagonistes. Ils sont acteurs dans les contraintes naturelles dont les hommes essaient de s'émanciper, dans l'approvisionnement en matières premières, dans les circuits commerciaux, dans les mythologies et les religions, etc., et jusque dans l'identité même des groupes qu'ils personnifient souvent de manière emblématique. L'Histoire de l'Homme, vue à travers ses relations avec le monde végétal, intéresse donc un très large champ de disciplines dans le domaine des Sciences de l'Homme et de la Société et des Sciences de l'Environnement.


                                        Anthropobotanica a le but de tenir ses engagements à travers l'édition d'une dizaine d'articles par an. Cette revue électronique a le projet d'asseoir sa réputation scientifique par la bonne tenue d'articles originaux et par l'édition d'actes de colloques d'anthropobotanique organisés en France et à l'étranger.


                                        Un Comité scientifique international, le bilinguisme (anglais et français) et une diffusion par le web au-delà des frontières de la francophonie contribuent à donner à la revue une place internationale et unique puisque la thématique n'est traitée par aucune revue actuellement. Anthropobotanica a l'ambition de devenir la première revue internationale d'anthropobotanique.


                                        La création d'Anthropobotanica permettra d'étendre la portée du champ de connaissance fécond qu'est l'anthropobotanique, de répondre à un réel besoin de la communauté et de prendre sa place sur la scène de la recherche internationale des sciences humaines et de l'environnement. Le créneau interdisciplinaire de la revue fait sa force dans le domaine intellectuel.

                                        The Prosopographia Ptolemaica

                                        The Prosopographia Ptolemaica is one of the long-standing research projects of the department of Ancient History at the University of Leuven.

                                        The Prosopographia Ptolemaica started as a list of all inhabitants of Egypt between 300 and 30 B.C., from Greek, Egyptian and Latin sources, both authors and documents. It is now being extended to the Roman and Byzantine periods.

                                        The automatisation of the Prosopographia Ptolemaica has been greatly advanced through a grant of the Kiessling Stiftung in 2008. 


                                        The Prosopographia Ptolemaic has been integrated in the papyrological framework of Trismegistos, http://www.tismegistos.org/. It is also set up in close collaboration with the Heidelberger Gesamtverzeichnis and the Duke Database of Documentary Papyri.

                                        Founders: Willy Peremans; Edmond Van 't Dack
                                        Directors: W. Clarysse, M. Depauw, H.Hauben, L.Mooren, K.Vandorpe
                                        Collaborators: Y. Broux, S. Coussement, G. Jennes, B. Van Beek, H. Verreth, S. Waebens
                                        Programming: J. Clarysse, B. Van Beek
                                        The Prosopographia Ptolemaica lists all inhabitants of Egypt between 300 and 30 B.C., from Greek, Egyptian and Latin sources, both authors and documents. The first volume appeared in 1950 in the series Studia Hellenistica and for nearly half a century the project was directed by the founding fathers Willy Peremans (1907-1986) and Edmond Van 't Dack (1923-1997). The first six volumes, to which are added vol. VIII and IX, collect all persons for whom an occupation is attested. A tenth volume, by C. La'da, collecting all ethnics in Ptolemaic Egypt, has been published in 2002 (Studia Hellenistica XXXVIII). Volume VII contains an index to all persons in volumes I-VI.
                                        Since 1981 priority is given to the computerisation of the documentation in a relational data base with the program Filemaker Pro. At this moment the data of all published volumes have been entered, many of them by Liesbeth Westhof in 2001. Herbert Verreth and Katelijn Vandorpe have entered all persons from the Zenon archive and the Pathyris archives, whereas Csaba La'da and Katja Müller have done the same with all persons bearing an ethnic. The hieroglyphic material of Panopolis is being entered by Mark Depauw. The project "historical topography of the Fayum" (OT.98.05) has led to many new entries for inhabitants of Fayum villages; thus persons of Theadelpheia, Euhemeria and Hawara, not only of the Ptolemaic but also of the Roman period, were included by Jacques France and Inge Uytterhoeven. The Prosopographia Ptolemaica is meant to be consulted both by Greek papyrologists and by egyptologists.

                                        Socratis et Socraticorum Reliquiae Source presents the transcription of the collection of testimonies about Socrates and Socratics (Socratis et Socraticorum Reliquiae) originally edited by G. Giannantoni.
                                        The main goal of our project is clear and simple: we have converted into digital form all the witnesses regarding Socrates and the so-called Minor Socratics. Our basis of reference for the production of such a virtual book is the sole, complete collection available nowadays, namely that edited by Gabriele Giannantoni (1990)2. It is perhaps useful to reflect on the actual and inspiring scope of our enterprise. We want to repropose - and 'disseminate' in a capillary way, so we hope - the rich tradition about Socrates (as well as information and witnesses about some important, although not always rightly evaluated, philosophers linked to him). A reasonable question is in the air: why?
