The ABIA Project (Annual Bibliography of Indian Archaeology)

[First posted in AWOL 1 April 2012, updated 26 March 2014]

The ABIA Project (Annual Bibliography of Indian Archaeology)
The ABIA project is a global network of scholars co-operating on an annotated bibliographic database for publishers covering South and Southeast Asian art and archaeology. The project was launched in 1997 at the initiative of the International Institute for Asian Studies in Leiden, the Netherlands, in colloaboration with international scholars and Asian academic institutes. The project receives scientific support from UNESCO.
The database ABIA South and Southeast Asian Art and Archaeology Index is fully searchable and is freely accessible. Extracts from the database are also available in the form of printed bibliographies.

ABIA Index

The ABIA Index is a bibliographic database on South and Southeast Asian art and archaeology compiled by an international team of specialists. ABIA index supplies annotated and indexed entries on scholarly publications in Asian and European languages relating to prehistory, (proto)historical archaeology, art history (including modern art), material culture, epigraphy, palaeography, numismatics and sigillography. The ABIA Index continues the old Annual Bibliography of Indian Archaeology (ABIA).


The first issue of the Annual Bibliography of Indian Archaeology was published in Leiden in 1928 under the direction of the reknowned Sanskrit scholar and archaeologist, Prof. Jean Philippe Vogel. Its utility and importance made ABIA an impressive bibliographic series with a publication run over 50 years. Thanks to the support of the International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS), the Jan Gonda Foundation in Amsterdam and the Faculty of Arts of the Universiteit Leiden, ABIA was re-launched in 1997 as the globally networked ABIA Index.
ABIA Database
The ABIA Index covers publications on pre- and proto-historical archaeology, historical archaeology, ancient and modern art history, material culture, epigraphy, paleography, numismatics and sigillography of South and Southeast Asia and of culturally related regions: Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Tibet, the 'Silk Road', South China and the Pacific.

Search IIAS


Search PGIAR

The Index covers scholarly publications from 1996, ranging from survey works and monographs to articles in journals and monographs, reviews and PhD dissertations. The ABIA Index provides detailed bibliographic (with the original diacritics) as well as annotations for each of the publications covered. Indexes by author, subject, and geographic area further facilitate searches. While the database is in English, publications originate from a multi-lingual palette, ensuring both variety and broad scope.
The database is compiled by several international teams of specialists, each covering a fixed geographic area and well-defined set of bibliographic materials. Each office creates its own database. All data can be linked through a 'Search all' function.

Syriaca.org: The Syriac Reference Portal


About the Project

Syriaca.org invites scholars interested in promoting Syriac studies to join as collaborators in the creation of a new online reference work for the study of Syriac authors, literature, and manuscripts. If you are interested please follow the link above to contact us for further details.

What is Syriaca.org?

We are pleased to announce that an international team of scholars has begun work on a new online reference resource for the study of Syriac authors, texts, manuscripts, and historical research. The Syriac Reference Portal is designed to meet the needs of a variety of academic users ranging from specialists in Syriac and related fields to students and the general public.
Specifically, the Syriac Reference Portal will bring together in an information hub the following resources:
  • an ontology or classification system for Syriac studies
  • a multi-lingual authority file for standardizing references to Syriac authors, texts, and place names
  • an online encyclopedia
  • a gazetteer of maps and geographic information related to Syriac studies
  • a classified bibliography
The above resources will be available in the first generation of the Portal. In later development, we will open these resources up for collaborative augmentation and annotation by scholars around the globe. In subsequent rounds of development, we will continue adding to the hub by linking additional digital content to the hub – for example, the electronic journal of Syriac studies, Hugoye, and the electronic corpus of Syriac literature being prepared at Brigham Young University. We will also add new tools such as a prosopographical component and, ultimately, the long-desired goal of a union catalogue for Syriac manuscripts.

How will it be useful?

The Syriac Reference Portal project was conceived to produce tools and reference resources that will overcome some of the access and discovery problems which currently impede scholarly research on Syriac language, cultures, and history. The principle objectives are threefold:
  • to compile and organize core data related to the study of Syriac sources
  • to create digital tools for widely disseminating this data and facilitating further research
  • to create an online hub (cyberinfrastructure) to assist future research in the field of Syriac studies

Who will use it?

The final product will benefit a variety of users. For students and the interested public, it will provide access to basic reference information about the historical, cultural, and religious diversity of the Middle East. For academics in general, it will generate new scholarly interest in Syriac sources by making research on Syriac accessible without the need for extensive facility in Syriac. Finally, by opening new levels of access to the sources through new discovery tools, the Syriac Reference Portal project will not only support the current research aims of specialists in the field, but even offer new ways of conceptualizing the historical evidence...

Syriaca.org Documentation

The creation of any reference work requires making a number of decisions simply in order to bring the project to a stage of completion where it is useful to the scholarly community. The documents linked to below describe decisions taken in the development of the Syriaca.org reference tools.

Online Comprehensive Bibliography on Syriac Christianity

 [First posted in AWOL 18 August 2012, updated 27 March 2014]

 Comprehensive Bibliography on Syriac Christianity
It was during the sixteenth century in Renaissance Europe that, as a result of the efforts of the Catholic and Protestant scholars of the New Testament, Syriac studies became a part of European intellectual life. Since then, the number of scholarly publications on various matters related to the history, culture and religious life of Syriac-speaking Christians has only increased. As these publications are in a variety of languages, and many of them scattered through journals and periodicals belonging to various academic fields, it is often difficult to obtain precise information on what has already been published on one or another aspect of Syriac Christianity. Our project aims to fill the evident gap in the bibliographical resources and provide a convenient and easily accessible tool for the worldwide scholarly community. The ultimate goal of this project is to create and launch an on-line database on Syriac Christianity that will be updated on a regular basis and available free of charge to the international scholarly community.     more about ...

Online Coins of the Roman Empire (OCRE)

[First posted in AWOL 16 July 2012, updated 28 March 2014]

Online Coins of the Roman Empire (OCRE)
Online Coins of the Roman Empire (OCRE), a joint project of the American Numismatic Society and the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, at New York University is creating a revolutionary new tool designed to help in the identification, cataloguing, and research of the rich and varied coinage of the Roman Empire. The project will ultimately record every published type of Roman Imperial Coinage from Augustus in 31 BC, until the death of Zeno in AD 491. This will create an easy to use digital corpus, with downloadable catalogue entries, incorporating almost 50,000 types of coins.
To date, more than 15,000 coin types are described, from 30 BC until AD 211, effectively covering the entire High Empire until the death of Septimius Severus.
The current version provides links to examples present in the ANS collection, the Roman Imperial collection of the Münzkabinett of the State Museum of Berlin and the University of Virginia Art Museum. Between these three collections, OCRE is now able to illustrate 50% of the imperial coin types that it contains. Moving forward, as more collections join the project, it will eventually incorporate and display almost all recorded Roman Imperial coin-types.
OCRE also allows users to search in 10 languages other than English, made possible by Nomisma.org's linked open data technologies.
OCRE can now link to another ANS developed resource, Coin Hoards of the Roman Republic. This enables OCRE to draw on findspot data for some early imperial coin types, and map their distribution.
To get started, use one of the Browse, Search or Maps interfaces via the tool bar above.
OCRE is a Numishare tool based on the stable numismatic identities established by the Nomisma project.

Open Access Library: Bibliotheca Chersonessitana

[First posted in AWOL 10 March 2011, updated 28 March 2014]

Bibliotheca Chersonessitana

Are you interested in Crimean history and archaeology antique editions? Do you agree to use the scans? If your answer is "yes", we are pleased to present a collection of the late 19th - early 20th centuries periodicals and other rare books of our library stock. In 1893 Karl Kazimirovich Kostsyushko-Valyuzhinich (1847-1907), the founder of the archaeological museum in Chersonesos, settled to begin collecting books for a future library. 

In one of his letters to the Imperial Archaeological Commission he wrote: " I cannot imagine a museum without a library" For a few years he managed to create an outstanding collection of books in history and archaeology, numismatics and arts, geography and other disciplines. These books are the precious core of our library collection. There are more than 30 thousands of volumes in the library holdings and almost a half is rare and valuable ones. Just a few people can get access to use these materials. According to the library status, publications are available only for Preserve of Tauric Chersonesos researchers and scholars collaborating with the Preserve within joint research agreements. If it were not hi-tech the situation would keep remaining the same for a long time. 
Several years ago, our library, in cooperation with the Institute of Classical Archaeology at the University of Texas at Austin (USA) and with the generous support of the Packard Humanities Institutelaunched a project of rare editions digitization and providing access to scans by Internet. We are also working on developing online library catalogue. It is an ongoing project and requires time, so we decided to make our library open at least for Internet audience and share with you already digitized materials. We promise to update the virtual collections with new publications. You are welcome!

On our help page you can find the detailed project description and resources user guidelines.

Вы интересуетесь старинными изданиями по истории и археологии Крыма? Вы согласны воспользоваться их цифровыми копиями? Если Ваш ответ - "да", то мы рады предложить Вам подборку периодики конца XIX - начала XX века и других редких книг из собрания нашей библиотеки, которая была создана в 1893 году Карлом Казимировичем Косцюшко-Валюжиничем (1847-1907) - основателем археологического музея в Херсонесе

В одном из своих писем в Императорскую Археологическую Комиссию он писал: "... я не мыслю себе музей без библиотеки ". За несколько лет ему удалось собрать замечательную коллекцию изданий по истории, археологии, нумизматике, искусству, географии и другим дисциплинам. Книги эти сейчас составляют драгоценную основу нашей коллекции. Сегодня количество изданий, хранящихся в библиотеке, превысило 30 тысяч томов, редких и ценных среди них - почти половина, но воспользоваться фондами могут лишь немногие. По своему статусу эта библиотека является закрытой, обслуживает только научных сотрудников заповедника "Херсонес Таврический"и ученых, связанных с заповедником договорами о совместных исследованиях. 

Если бы не высокие технологии, такое положение сохранялось бы еще долго, но несколько лет назад, совместно с коллегами из Института Классической Археологии Техасского университета в Остине (США) при поддержке Гуманитарного Института Паккарда, наша библиотека начала проект по оцифровке редких изданий и подготовке их к размещению в сети Интернет. В планах также создание электронного каталога, но пока его нет, мы решили сделать нашу закрытую библиотеку открытой хотя бы для Интернет-аудитории, и поместить на этих страницах уже оцифрованные издания. Обещаем постоянно пополнять нашу виртуальную коллекцию и всегда будем рады посетителям!

На страничке помощиВы найдете более подробные объяснения концепции проекта и небольшое руководство для пользования нашими ресурсами.

Archaeological Map of The Crimea

[First posted in AWOL 31 August 2012, updated 28 March 2014]

Археологическая карта Крыма
Археологические экспедиции, регулярно работающие в Крыму.
История Крыма открывается нам во многом благодаря археологическим раскопкам. В приводимом ниже списке и на карте указаны экспедиции, в течение многих лет проводящие археологические исследования в Крыму на ряде крупных памятников. В некоторые из экспедиций можно поехать волонтером. Волонтерам, как правило, приходится оплачивать свое пребывание. Более подробную информацию Вы можете найти на сайтах экспедиций, если таковые есть и функционируют, либо, установив контакты с прошлыми участниками или руководством. Многие, побывавшие в экспедициях, и дальше именно так предпочитают проводить отдых в Крыму и история Крыма, открываемая археологией, становится частью их жизни. Подчеркну, что экспедиций, конечно, гораздо больше, но многие носят кратковременный характер, и часто их задачей являются раскопки отдельного объекта. В этом случае, как правило, экспедиции немногочисленны, раскопки выполняются профессиональными археологами с привлечение небольшого числа опытных рабочих.

The Confessions of Augustine: An Electronic Edition

The Confessions of Augustine: An Electronic Edition
This document is an on-line reprint of Augustine: Confessions, a text and commentary by James J. O'Donnell (Oxford: 1992; ISBN 0-19-814378-8). The text and commentary were encoded in SGML by the Stoa Consortium in co-operation with the Perseus Project; the HTML files were generated from the archival SGML version. 

Each book of the text has a link to introductory commentary on that book, and each section of the text has a link to detailed comments on the section. Links within the commentary connect not only to the section of text directly being annotated, but also to other parts of the text and commentary. Footnotes in the commentary appear at the end of each book; the footnote numbers are links from the commentary text to the footnote and from the footnote text back to the commentary. Where possible, links have been provided to the texts of classical works and Biblical passages cited in the commentary. Links at the end of each book of the text and commentary allow navigation to the next book or the previous one of text, commentary, or both together. 

By default, the text displays in the upper frame and the commentary in the lower. Use the "frame free" version to display the text and commentary in separate browser windows.
