      Digital Papyrology I. Methods, Tools and Trends

      Digital Papyrology I. Methods, Tools and Trends

      ISBN: 9783110547474 9783110547603 Year: Pages: viii, 318 Language: English
      Publisher: De Gruyter
      Subject: History
      Abstract Since the very beginnings of the digital humanities, Papyrology has been in the vanguard of the application of information technologies to its own scientific purposes, for both theoretical and practical reasons (the strong awareness towards the problems of human memory and the material ways of preserving it; the need to work with a multifarious and overwhelming amount of different data). After more than thirty years of development, we have now at our disposal the most advanced tools to make papyrological studies more and more effective, and even to create a new conception of "papyrology" and a new model of "edition" of the ancient documents. At this turining point, it is important to build an epistemological framework including all the different expressions of Digital Papyrology, to trace a historical sketch setting the background of the contemporary tools, and to provide a clear overview of the current theoretical and technological trends, so that all the possibilities currently available can be exploited following uniform pathways. The volume represents an innovative attempt to deal with such topics, usually relegated into very quick and general treatments within journal articles or papyrological handbooks.

      Digital Corpus of Literary Papyri (DCLP) News

      Digital Corpus of Literary Papyri (DCLP) News
      We are pleased to announce the first release of the Digital Corpus of Literary Papyri (DCLP), a comprehensive, searchable and browsable digital collection of literary and subliterary texts surviving on papyrus and other portable materials from Egypt and other areas of the ancient Mediterranean. The project was funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft within their Bilateral Digital Humanities Programm and directed by Roger Bagnall and myself. In addition to the core team, represented by James Cowey, Tom Elliott, Holger Essler, Carmen Lanz, and Marcel Keller, we received crucial support from Willy Clarysse and Mark Depauw in Leuven, who furnished the nearly 15,000 Leuven Database of Ancient Books files that serve as the descriptive backbone of each record. Further assistance was given by the Anagnosis project in Würzburg, Nicola Reggiani and the Corpus of Greek Medical Papyri project at the University of Parma, Gianluca Del Mastro and the the Centro Internazionale per lo Studio dei Papiri Ercolanesi in Naples, Daniel Riaño (Madrid), Julia Lougovaya (Heidelberg), Valeria Piano (Florence), Dot Porter, and Winona Salewsky. Josh Sosin, Hugh Cayless and Ryan Baumann at Duke University's Collaboratory for Classics Computing deserve special thanks for their help transferring the code stack to Heidelberg and their work reintegrating DCLP into the environment. Once we have completed integration testing, will serve as the DCLP home.
      DCLP has produced both software and digital content of value to scholars who work with ancient literature and book culture (e.g., classical philologists, theologians, and ancient historians). Nearly 15,000 fragments of ancient literary works have been documented in the form of open, digital "metadata" records available online on the DCLP demonstration website, and nearly 1,000 searchable texts have been encoded and incorporated into these records to date.
      Examples can be found here:
      School tablet with Pythagoras sententia and conjugation paradigm
      The website itself constitutes another important output of the project: a version of the software that powers, customized for the specific needs of literary papyri. In addition to the, all DCLP code and data are openly available from
      DCLP texts can be searched together with DDbDP documents, which is in fact the default search setting, or alone as a single corpus. To limit a search only to DCLP, select “All DCLP records” in the drop-down menu under “Collection,” or click here. The interface itself will be familiar to anyone who has used and offers several browsing options, including by Author/Work, Series, and TM Number. TM browse is only a temporary service; in the future, users will be able to search by specific TM numbers.
      As with, DCLP is community supported. We welcome submissions by colleagues and students around the world in the form of updated metadata, Greek or Latin texts, emendation proposals, new or re-editions of texts. In particular, we are interested in increasing the number of transcriptions of previously published papyri.
      If you have questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me.

          Publication Cover
          The Revue d’histoire des textes is published by the IRHT. It covers a vast chronological and geographic realm; it focuses on texts composed before 1500 from the Latin, Greek, Romance and oriental linguistic domains. It publishes preliminary material for critical editions as well as studies on the whole of a given textual tradition, illustrated as necessary by the edition of short texts and of previousy unpublished fragments. An index of all the manuscripts cited makes each volume a valuable tool for authors of catalogues, as well as for cultural historians and, in general, for all those interested in the transmission of intellectual heritage. 

          La Revue d’histoire des textes est publiée par l'IRHT. Elle couvre un très vaste domaine, chronologique et géographique; elle s'intéresse aux textes des domaines linguistiques grec, latin, roman et orientaux, composés avant l’an 1500. Elle publie des matériaux préliminaires à des éditions critiques et des études portant sur l'ensemble d’une tradition textuelle, illustrées au besoin par l'édition de textes courts et de fragments inédits. Un index des manuscrits cités fait de chaque volume un instrument de travail précieux pour les auteurs de catalogues, aussi bien que pour les historiens de la culture et, en général, pour tous ceux qu'intéresse la transmission du patrimoine intellectuel.

          Bulletin de l'Association Pro Aventico
          ISSN: 1015-115X

          Le "Bulletin de l'Association Pro Aventico" (BPA) est l?organe de publication des activités du Site et Musée romains d?Avenches ; il paraît depuis 1887. Il contient des contributions scientifiques relatives aux fouilles, aux monuments et à tous sujets scientifiques touchant de près ou de loin Aventicum.

          L'"Association Pro Aventico" a été fondée en 1885 par un groupe de savants soucieux de sauvegarder le site d'Aventicum, la capitale de l?Helvétie romaine. Des fouilles systématiques furent entreprises et publiées régulièrement dans le "Bulletin de l?Association Pro Aventico". L?organisation des fouilles ayant passé aux mains de la "Fondation Pro Aventico" en 1964, l?Association a gardé pour tâche principale de promouvoir les publications scientifiques et de haute vulgarisation tendant à faire connaître les résultats des fouilles.
