Archives de l'expédition Philby-Ryckmans-Lippens en Arabie (1951-1952)

Archives de l'expédition Philby-Ryckmans-Lippens en Arabie (1951-1952) 

L’expédition belge Philby-Ryckmans-Lippens, menée par l’Université catholique de Louvain en 1951-1952 est réputée être la seule mission scientifique ayant systématiquement exploré l’Arabie centrale. Elle a permis la constitution d’un fonds documentaire unique, révélant des éléments très méconnus – et parfois disparus – de l’histoire de l’Arabie préislamique. Réalisée à l’invitation du roi Abd al-Azîz Ibn Saoud, est conçue comme un voyage au sein de la partie méconnue des provinces méridionales de l’Arabie, sur 5400 km de désert, couvrant la vieille route au départ de Jeddah, vers Ta'if, Turaba, Bisha, Abha, Kuhayf et Najrân et ensuite le nord vers Kawkab, Dam et Riyad, territoires éminemment importants pour l’expansion culturelle de la Péninsule. Cette expédition, connue sous le nom Philby-Ryckmans-Lippens, constitue la première et la seule expédition exploratoire dans le désert arabique (il y a eu des fouilles ponctuelles dans le Nord de l'Arabie, en rapport avec les Nabatéens entre autres, dans les Emirats et à Oman mais jamais plus une telle mission). Cette expédition, en plus des informations topographiques de première main, a permis le rassemblement de résultats épigraphiques de tout premier plan pour la période couverte par les inscriptions : 8e s. av. JC - 2e s. apr. JC. C’est dire si les archives ayant trait à cette expédition contiennent des données uniques, et ce d’autant plus qu’elles sont difficiles à retrouver sur le terrain aujourd'hui et qu’elles s’avèrent n’être que partiellement exploitées et largement inédites. Ainsi, 12000 inscriptions, en très grande majorité préislamiques et écrites dans diverses langues sud-arabiques et nord-arabiques, ont été copiés (photographies et dessins). Parmi celles-ci, 9000 sont thamudiques et ayant de fait multiplié par cinq le nombre des textes de ce type connus en 1951-1952. De plus, les scientifiques ont ramené un petit groupe de textes historiques en sabéen tardif provenant du voisinage de Najran, Kawkab, et de la route de l’ancienne caravane traversant l’Arabie. Cette expédition constitue donc une étape fondamentale dans la recherche du domaine.
Plus largement, les archives comprennent également :

  • des cartes géographiques détaillées tracées par les membres de l'équipe : il s'agit des premières cartes détaillées de l'Arabie centrale. Ces cartes ont été les plus détaillées pendant des années et elles ont été utilisées par les grandes compagnies pétrolières pour trouver du pétrole.
  • de la documentation ethnographique
  • les notes personnelles des Professeurs Gonzague et Jacques Ryckmans et du capitaine Philippe Lippens, parmi lesquelles des journaux de voyage concernant l’expédition, détaillés km par km et agrémentés d’innombrables croquis (inscriptions, paysages, etc).
  • copie tapuscrite du journal de Philby (par ailleurs explorateur anglais qui a travaillé à l’exploration géologique de la Péninsule arabique toute sa vie et qui fut aussi agent secret britannique ayant travaillé avec Lawrence d’Arabie).
  • des plaques de verre
  • des syllabi et documents préparatoires aux cours académiques de Jacques Ryckmans,
  • des photographies (argentiques et négatifs) : Membres de l'expédition ; membres de l'équipe diplomatique belge ; membres des tribus bédouines arabes rencontrées
  • Inscriptions en langues sud-arabiques et nord-arabiques ; art rupestre ; inscriptions arabes.
  • de la correspondance (lettres postales) entre Jacques Ryckmans et ses collègues internationaux, discutant les inscriptions relevées durant de cette mission, dans la période 1950-1970.
  • des empreintes de sceaux sud- et nord-arabiques en plâtre
  • des objets archéologiques donnés aux membres de l’expédition en récompense de leur investissement dans les études de l’Arabie ancienne.

Italia Epigrafica Digitale è una pubblicazione periodica che raccoglie e indicizza, in una serie di fascicoli organizzati geograficamente, le schede prodotte, a una certa data, per la banca dati EDR (Epigraphic Database Roma: www.edr-edr.it) dai vari gruppi di lavoro.

I record contenuti in EDR, infatti, tutti firmati e datati, in molti casi non rappresentano una semplice digitalizzazione di materiali bibliografici già esistenti, ma apportano un contributo critico e di novità alla conoscenza dei testi epigrafici, spesso in seguito ad un controllo diretto degli originali. Rendere periodicamente disponibili anche in questa forma i dati e le informazioni presenti nella banca dati ha lo scopo di valorizzare l’apporto individuale degli schedatori e dei gruppi di lavoro in cui operano, diffusi su tutto il territorio nazionale (come evidenzia la composizione del Comitato scientifico), alla conoscenza di una fonte fondamentale per la conoscenza dell’Italia antica come la documentazione epigrafica latina e greca.

The Antiquities Trade in Egypt 1880-1930: The H.O. Lange Papers

Forfatter: Frderik Hagen & Kim Ryholt & Marita Akhøj Nielse

Scientia Danica. Series H, Humanistica, 4

The book presents the first in-depth analysis of this market during its “golden age” in Egypt in the late 19th and early 20th Century. It is primarily based on the archival material of the Danish Egyptologist H. O. Lange (1863-1943) who, during two prolonged stays in Egypt (1899/1900 and 1929/1930), bought objects on behalf of Danish museums. The travel diaries, and the accompanying photographs, are complemented by a wide range of other sources, including contemporary travel guides and various travel memoirs, which together paint an extraordinarily detailed picture of the extensive antiquities trade.

The book looks at the laws governing trade and export, both in theory and practice, and the changes over time. The practicalities of the trade are described: its seasons, the networks of supply, the various methods available for acquiring antiquities, and the subsequent routes of transmission of objects, as well as the different types of dealers operating in Egypt. The geographical distribution of dealers is mapped, and the role of the Egyptian state as a dealer is investigated, both through official sale rooms, and as a seller and exporter of more or less complete tomb-chapels.

The final part of the book contains a list, with short biographies, of over 250 dealers active in Egypt from the 1880s until the abolishment of the trade in 1983. Most of them are described here in detail for the first time.

J. Paul Getty Trust Occasional Papers in Cultural Heritage Policy

title banner that reads: J. Paul Getty Trust Occasional Papers in Cultural Heritage Policy 

The time is right for adopting a framework for the protection of cultural heritage. 

The J. Paul Getty Trust, prompted by the destruction of cultural heritage in Syria and Iraq, is enlisting the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect to engage in an educational campaign for the protection of cultural heritage in conflict zones. 

The campaign seeks to raise awareness of UN Member States regarding the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict and its additional protocols, as well as recent resolutions by the UN Security Council. 

To that end, the J. Paul Getty Trust has initiated a series of papers on culture at risk.

Valuable data sets have been provided by Marco Marizza (cuneiform texts, Boğazköy seal impressions) and Max Gander (PNs from Ortaköy/Šapinuwa). Corrections and feedback of any kind are welcome and gratefully acknowledged.

The database consists of a repertoire of attestations and a general PNs list which is integrated in the search tool Hittite Name Finder.

DANUBIUS Project: Ecclesiastical Organisation and Christian Topography of the Lower Danube during Late Antiquity (3rd-8th Centuries AD)


The DANUBIUS project intends to study the Christianisation of the Lower Danube over a very long period, between the 3rd and the 8th centuries AD. That research topic has not resulted in any complete synthesis since Jacques Zeiller’s Les origines chrétiennes dans les provinces danubiennes de l’Empire romain (Paris, 1918). This project – which is the first stage of a long-term international and interdisciplinary research program – is thus reconsidering the question in the light of the scientific advances made in the last hundred years, both in terms of history and archaeology, for a better understanding of the simultaneous evolution of its ecclesiastical organisation and Christian topography. To begin with, it will focus more on the last reaches of the Danube to be lost by Constantinople, which is also the part of the river which is best documented from literary sources, viz. the Lower Danube (the Late Roman provinces of Dacia Ripensis, Moesia Secunda and Scythia). To do so, it will develop a geographic information system (GIS) model of the episcopal sees and other Christian sites, structured around three work packages (WP). The first WP foresees is the compilation of a database of the written and material evidence of Christianisation. The second WP is planned around the archaeological explorations of a little-known Late Roman site, viz. Zaldapa (Krushari, Bulgaria), which may be unique in being the only episcopal see of the region planted in an agglomeration that predates the Romans. The third WP, proceeding from a part of the documentation collected in the other two, intends to offer a prosopography as the first step towards the publication of the Balkan volumes of the Prosopographie chrétienne du Bas-Empire (PCBE) series. Globally, this collection of data and case studies will be the laboratory for innovative conceptual tools and a new synthesis.

Sanskrit WordNet


The Sanskrit WordNet is an on-going collaboration between the University of Pavia and the University of Exeter, under the joint direction of William Michael Short and Silvia Luraghi to create a comprehensive lexico-semantic database of the Sanskrit language. It is intended to model Sanskrit's semantic system as fully and accurately as possible, in a form that is machine-interpretable and machine-actionable, and thus suitable to NLP applications of different kinds, especially in the area of natural language understanding.

This project builds on, and extends, original work by Oliver Hellwig for the Digital Corpus of Sanskrit, with Erica Biagetti serving as the project's technical coordinator.

Die Beiträge dieses Tagungsbandes erörtern sowohl aus allgemeiner Perspektive wie auch anhand konkreter Beispiele, welche neuen Erkenntnispotentiale sich aus den gegenwärtigen interdisziplinären Arbeiten zum Phänomen des Bildes und seiner Wahrnehmung, die sich seit den Wenden zum Bildlichen mit unterschiedlichen Zielsetzungen und Vorgehensweisen unter den Bezeichnungen Bildwissenschaften und Visual Culture Studies vielfältig entwickeln, für die archäologische Erforschung von Bildkulturen ergeben. Dabei werden semiotische und perzeptuelle, framesemantische, affekttheoretische und kognitionswissenschaftliche Ansätze ebenso angesprochen wie Fragen der Bildkontexte und der Wirkmacht des Bildes.

Première séance : vendredi 9 octobre 2020

Avez-vous pensé à traduire Homère ou Virgile non pas en alexandrins mais en hologrammes peuplant un espace 3D que toutes les sciences de l’Antiquité permettraient de reconstituer ? En visitant un chantier de fouilles ou un musée, avez-vous ressenti la frustration de ne pas pouvoir imaginer la vie des gens dont on conserve les traces ? Amateur de films ou jeux vidéo, vous êtes-vous demandés comment recréer l’île d’Éole ? Philologues, historiens, archéologues, géographes ou paléontologues, nous avons besoin les uns des autres pour comprendre les sites et les peuples antiques. Pour apprendre et construire ensemble cette méthodologie interdisciplinaire, nous discuterons avec nos intervenants des textes et cartes, des recherches de terrain en archéologie et géosciences (géologie, géographie et géomorphologie, géophysique, géochimie, paléobotanique et paléozoologie), des projets cartographiques (SIG, 3D/4D, études de visibilité, reconstitution diachronique des sites, mise en valeur de l’impact anthropique par rapport à l’évolution naturelle).

Le séminaire est ouvert à tous, sans aucune connaissance préalable.

Une journée d’études « Langues, territoires, identités. Diversité linguistique et culturelle », consacrée aux travaux de l’axe A de l’AOROC, co organisée avec Daniel Petit, clôtura la série de séances.
