Nikolaos Myrepsos' Dynameron: Critical Edition
 Ilias Valiakos
 Nikolaos Myrepsos' Dynameron
Nikolaos Myrepsos‘ Dynameron ist die Zweitauflage mit einer englischen Einleitung. Das Buch ist, nach acht Jahrhunderten, kritisch ediert. Es ist ein für die byzantinische und frühneuzeitliche Medizin- und Pharmaziegeschichte grundlegender Text und steht in einer langen Tradition von Handbüchern, wie es sie bereits seit der Antike gegeben hat. Der Text enthält als Folge seiner Entstehungsgeschichte, Wörter aus allen Phasen der griechischen Sprache, dazu auch einige Fremd- und Lehnwörter aus dem Lateinischen, Arabischen und Persischen. Der Text war schon aus der lateinischen Übersetzung bekannt und hat mit seinen Rezepten zur Erstellung der ersten abendländischen Pharmaziehandbücher beigetragen, der bekannten Pharmacopoeia.

Neuauflage zu Ilias Valiakos: Das Dynameron des Nikolaos Myrepsos. Erstedition von 2019


Dr. Ilias Valiakos, Wissenschaftliches Personal der Medizinischen Fakultät der Universität Thessalien in Larissa, Griechenland.

dPVS: the Digital Proceedings of the Virgil Society
ISSN: 0968-2112
THE Virgil Society was founded in 1943, and its first President, the poet T.S. Eliot, delivered What is a Classic? as his Presidential Address in the following year. The purpose of the Society was and remains to unite all those who cherish the central educational tradition of Western Europe. Of that tradition Virgil is the symbol. Membership is open to all those who are in sympathy, whether they read Latin or not.

There are normally five or six meetings each year in London, held on Saturday afternoons in Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU. 

The speakers include both amateur and professional scholars, many of them Virgilians of international repute. Lectures are followed by refreshments, giving an opportunity to meet the speaker and other members of the Society.

Most lectures are published in full in the Proceedings of the Virgil Society, which also include some reviews of works relevant to Virgil. There is also a Newsletter, which appears twice a year.

La revue Camenae, créée en 2007 par P. Galand, actuellement dirigée par V. Leroux, se propose de publier en ligne des numéros thématiques consacrés à la philosophie, la littérature et les arts du monde romain antique, à la relation entre ces disciplines et à leur réception au Moyen Âge et à la Renaissance, en latin comme en vernaculaire.
Elle est placée sous les auspices des « Camènes », ces nymphes prophétiques des bois et des sources, bien vite assimilées aux Muses par les Romains et tout aussi familières aux humanistes, pour que ce titre illustre à la fois la latinité, les « nœuds entre les arts » et la translatio imperii et studii, qui sont au cœur de nos préoccupations

Textes rassemblés par Sandra PROVINI (Université de Paris 7) Le présent recueil s’interroge sur la notion d’"héroïque" dans la littérature occidentale mais aussi, selon une perspective plus largement comparatiste, dans d’autres littératures écrites ou orales. En plus des formes traditionnelles telles que l’épopée dans la culture de l’occident, d’autres formes plus courtes se trouvent ainsi interrogées, ainsi que les modes de narration cinématographiques. Ce numéro, sans prétention à l’exhaustivité, assume le choix, qui paraît fécond à ses auteurs, d’objets et d’approches hétérogènes. L’enquête, menée par de jeunes "classicistes" appuyés par des spécialistes chevronnés, espère témoigner de la vitalité des études antiques, médiévales et renaissantes. Le lecteur trouvera ici des articles détaillés qui reflètent des communications prononcées au cours des réunions du groupe de travail de Sandra Provini (Paris 7, 2005-2008), entremêlés de résumés d’interventions ou de travaux plus amples, qui viennent compléter ces articles.

Bulletin de la Société Française d'Egyptologie (BSFE)
ISSN: 0037-9379
lsfe3
 Les fondateurs de cette société savante, créée à Paris en 1923 par les égyptologues du moment, ont eu dès sa création le souci de "grouper les égyptologues et les personnes s'intéressant à l'étude de l'Égypte depuis ses origines jusqu'aux premiers siècles de l'Hégire afin de leur permettre d'échanger leurs vues sur toutes les questions concernant l'Égypte, d'entretenir des rapports tant avec les savants spécialistes des autres pays qu'avec le public français non initié à l'égyptologie et de publier des travaux relatifs à ces études..." (statuts 1923, art. Ier).

À notre époque où l'on parle beaucoup et souvent inconsidérément d'égyptologie, les scientifiques ont à coeur, en lui faisant partager leurs découvertes,de bien informer le public toujours plus large qui s'intéresse à l'étude de l'Égypte ancienne.


À cet effet, la SFE propose à ses membres trois réunions par an au cours desquelles des communications des spécialistes français ou étrangers présentent nouvelles et découvertes de l'égyptologie internationale. Le compte rendu de ces réunions et le texte complet des communications paraissent dans le Bulletin de la Société française d'égyptologie - trois numéros par an.


La société française d'égyptologie publie annuellement la Revue d'égyptologie, publication scientifique de renommée mondiale, accueillant des articles d'égyptologues aussi bien français qu'étrangers.


Enfin, selon l'actualité, la SFE propose à ses adhérents des visites d'expositions et de musées consacrés à la civilisation égyptienne, ainsi que des voyages.

Sumerian Verb Conjugator (SVC)

Sumerian Verb Conjugator and Analyser (SVC, SVA)
Babylonian Verb Conjugator and Analyser (BVC, BVA)
 
In the study of the Sumerian language, the verbal system represents the greatest challenge. Its complexity makes it difficult to present it comprehensively in tabular form. Another problem is the insufficient availability of information about the possible constructions of verbs and their lexical meanings. The situation is less dramatic in the Akkadian language, where extensive lexica and conjugation tables (by von Soden, Huehnergard) are available, but even here it is not easy for students to find the right table with the right paradigm.

The aim of this project is the development of online tools to mitigate the unsatisfactory situation described above. They will be written in the programming language Javascript and will be executable on every internet browser and device. The tools should have the potential to become important reference works in Assyriology.

At the moment our work is focused mainly on the Sumerian Verb Conjugator (SVC) and the Sumerian Verb Analyser (SVA). Their prototype is accessible under http://www.gilgamesh.ch/svc/svc.html. There is also a prototype of a Babylonian Verb Conjugator (BVC) under http://www.gilgamesh.ch/bvc/bvc.html, however, the development is less advanced, and as yet it does not know some frequent verbs which are doubly weak or very irregular. A Babylonian Verb Analyser (BVA) does not exist yet.

The Sumerian Verb Conjugator and Analyser are supposed to accomplish the following tasks for all proven Sumerian verbs including the composite verbs:
  • They should provide detailed information on the possible syntactic constructions of a verb and the meanings it has in these constructions.
  • SVC should be able to generate conjugation tables for each verb and all its constructions and should master all possible prefixes and suffixes. Each table field should optionally contain the verb form, an analysis that clarifies it, a morphological gloss as used in linguistics, and an English translation..
  • SVA should be able to analyse all verb forms and in case of ambiguity should show all the possible different analyses. In addition, it should indicate possible alternative readings, such as i3-gub and ni-gub.
  • It should be able to provide possible English translations for all verb forms; in case of ambiguity, it should provide translations for all the possible different analyses.
  • For each verb, SVC should provide a representative list of examples from Sumerian literature, including an English translation, a morphological gloss, and, if possible, a link to the online source at ETCSL, CDLI, BDTNS, ETCSRI, or ePSD which allows the user to study the example in its context. This representative list should ideally contain all existing forms of this verb.
  • Many verb forms produced by SVC are not attested but are logically formed by the computer. Also, many analyses of verb forms shown by SVA are merely theoretical. Thanks to the examples list, SVC and SVA will be able to indicate (a) which forms of the verb are attested and which are not. In addition, they will indicate (b) which of the given analyses of verb forms are found in the list of examples.
  • Online text databases such as ETCSL, CDLI, BDTNS, ETCSRI and ePSD will have the possibility to link verb forms to SVA and display possible analyses and translations at the click of the mouse. They just have to add links like the following to their verb forms: http://www.gilgamesh.ch/svc/sva.html?inpstring=i3-gub (for the verb form i3-gub). In fact, this already works for a number of verbs. A future version of SVA should also be able to isolate verbs, including compound verbs from a longer string, e.g. from a whole text line. In this way it will also be usable for text databases that are not lemmatised.
  • Thanks to the morphological glosses, the sample texts, tables, and analyses will also be accessible to linguists who have a great interest in Sumerian but do not necessarily want to learn the language in depth.
The Babylonian Verb Conjugator and Analyser should do pretty much the same for the Akkadian language, except that no examples from Akkadian literature will be given. Here, the user should rely on CAD, for which BVC will only indicate the volume and page number.

Thus, our project as well as this documentation are still under construction, and it is to be expected that many things will be changed or improved with time and especially when Jagersma's new grammar will appear.

The conjugation tables and the verbal analyses of SVC and SVA will be mostly based on the principles laid out in A.H. Jagersma's "A Descriptive Grammar of Sumerian" (2010) and "An introduction to Sumerian Grammar" (2018), with some exceptions, where we know that Jagersma has changed his views or where ideas from Attinger (1993), Foxvog (2016) or other sources including the authors themselves (D. Koch, M. Jaques) were implemented.

We are deeply indebted to Bram Jagersma, who helped us to clear up many points of doubt. It is important to add, however, that he did not really supervise this project and any shortcomings or errors in the tables or analyses or documentation are our own fault, not his.

Early Christians Adapting to the Roman Empire. Mutual Recognition
By Huttunen, Niko


Publisher: Brill
Date: 2020
ISBN: 978-90-04-42824-9
In Early Christians Adapting to the Roman Empire: Mutual Recognition Niko Huttunen challenges the interpretation of early Christian texts as anti-imperial documents. He presents examples of the positive relationship between early Christians and the Roman society. With the concept of “recognition” Huttunen describes a situation in which the parties can come to terms with each other without full agreement. Huttunen provides examples of non-Christian philosophers recognizing early Christians. He claims that recognition was a response to Christians who presented themselves as philosophers. Huttunen reads Romans 13 as a part of the ancient tradition of the law of the stronger. His pioneering study on early Christian soldiers uncovers the practical dimension of recognizing the empire.

The history of travel, travelers, and travel writing is an academic discipline in it's own right. Travelers accounts of journeys from before Pausanius to the present form an important corpus of descriptive documentation of ancient monuments and sites, many of them no longer visible. ASTENE: The Association for the Study of Travel in Egypt and the Near East organizes conferences and publishes a Bulletin devoted to the topic.  The venerable Hakluyt Society has been the focus of publication of scholarly editions of primary records of voyages, travels and other geographical material since 1846. Shirley Weber's compendious bibliography Voyages and travels in Greece, the Near East, and adjacent regions, made previous to the year 1801; being a part of a larger catalogue of works on geography, cartography, voyages and travels, in the Gennadius Library in Athens has been available online for some time (though it has been brought to my attention that it in no longer open access).

The discipline seems to be an attractive one for the development of open access digital libraries. 
I encourage readers here to let me know by means of the comments or otherwise, of other useful open access collections.
