Open Access Monograph Series: Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum

Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum
Founded in 1945, with its first volume published in 1960, the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum has attracted the support and participation of an international team of scholars interested in classical tradition during the Middle Ages and Renaissance.
Each article treats a separate classical author, beginning with a detailed essay on the author’s reception from antiquity to 1600. This Fortuna is followed by a comprehensive list both of printed and manuscript commentaries in Latin on the author and, in the case of Greek authors, a list of Latin translations as well.
This site provides Open Access to previously published volumes of the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum; beginning with Volume X, printed volumes of the CTC will be published by the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies.

Launched: Concordance Liberation Project: Freeing the data in Greek and Latin concordances for digital projects

Where have all the concordances gone? Before the rise of a certain ubiquitous search engine, the humble index verborum (an alphabetical list of dictionary headwords used in a text, with a full list of citations for each instance) or concordance (same, but with a few words of context for each instance) were respected genres of scholarship. Concordances, dull though they may seem, helped classical scholars in studying the characteristic vocabulary of the authors. They allowed the finding of passages quickly. They helped translators and commentators by allowing access to a full list of instances of a particular lemma, something dictionaries did not provide. They revealed which words did not appear in an author. And, a key factor for many classical concordance makers, they could help in efforts to establish a more authoritative text.
Now the print concordance is well and truly defunct, digital road-kill beneath the wheel of digital tools. Yet most algorithmic attempts to replicate concordances are actually lists of character strings, not, as with most of the older print concordances, lists of dictionary headwords—a crucial distinction.
But what if the painstaking work of previous generations could be freed from the book and opened to digital processing?
The Concordance Liberation Project will release the data on Github under a creative commons share alike license, as:
  • a .txt file of the professionally digitized book
  • a lemmatized text of the work (as a spreadsheet and/or csv)
  • code that allowed harvested the lemmata from the .txt and created a lemmatization spreadhsheet for final processing by human hands.
Whenever possible, these lemmatized texts will be added to The Bridge to allow readers to benefit directly from the lemmatization work of scholars long ago.
A fuller version of this manifesto can be found at Flight of the Concordances

Open Access Journal: DIO: The International Journal of Scientific History

 [First posted in AWOL 4 December 2013, updated 14 January 2019]

DIO: The International Journal of Scientific History
ISSN 1041-5440
DIO is primarily a journal of scientific history & principle. Most articles are authored by astrononomers, physicists, mathematicians, & classicists — not historians. There are no page charges.
  • Since 1991 inception, has gone without fee to leading scholars & libraries.
  • Publisher & journal cited (1996 May 9) in New York Times frontpage story on his discovery of data blowing open the famous 70-year Richard Byrd North Pole controversy. [Featured in DIO 10 [2000], co-published with the University of Cambridge.]
  • See also New York Times Science 2010/9/8, or fuller version(including link to DIO) on NYT website.
  • Journal is published primarily for universities' and scientific institutions' collections; among subscribers (by written request) are libraries at: Oxford University, Cambridge University, Johns Hopkins, Cal Tech, Cornell University, the universities of Chicago, Toronto, London, Munich, Göttingen, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Tartu, Amsterdam, Liège, Ljubljana, Bologna, Canterbury (NZ); the US Naval Observatory, Royal Astronomical Society (London), Royal Observatory (Scotland), British Museum, Russian State Library, International Center for Theoretical Physics (Trieste).
  • Contributors include world authorities in their respective fields, experts at, e.g., Johns Hopkins University, Cambridge University, University of London.
  • New findings on Mayan eclipse math, Columbus' landfall, and Comet Halley apparitions.
  • Journal first to reveal orbital evidence proving the priority of Paris Observatory's U.Leverrier as Neptune's 1846 discoverer, and overturning history's harsh verdict on J. Challis (Cantab) for missing the planet. On Leverrier's instruction, Neptune was found at Berlin Observatory 1846/9/23 within 1° of his computed spot — still, 1 1/2 centuries later, astronomical history's #1 miracle-event.
  • [DIO 2.3, 4.2, 7.1 & DIO 9.1 [1999], the last cited at Scientific American 2004 Dec p.98 for the key finding that undid England's long-previously-accepted priority claim.]
  • Includes occasional satirical supplement, customarily devoted to an ever-bubbling stream of math-science howlers, published by the most dissent-suppressive History-of-astronomy professorial deities.
  • Entire 1993 volume [DIO vol. 3] devoted to the first (and still the only) critical edition of Tycho's legendary 1004-star catalog.
Scholars familiar with DIOare urged to bring it to the attention of the serials departments of appropriate institutional libraries.

Die Ikonographie Palästinas/Israels und der Alte Orient. Eine Religionsgeschichte in Bildern - Die Eisenzeit bis zum Beginn der achämenidischen Herrschaft

Die Ikonographie Palästinas/Israels und der Alte Orient. Eine Religionsgeschichte in Bildern - Die Eisenzeit bis zum Beginn der achämenidischen Herrschaft


Die Ikonographie Palästinas/Israels und der Alte Orient (IPIAO) ist ein bildgeschichtliches Kompendium zur Religionsgeschichte Palästinas/Israels. Der vorliegende vierte und damit letzte Band der Reihe behandelt die Eisenzeit bis zum Beginn der Achämenidenherrschaft. Annähernd tausend Objekte der Bildkunst Palästinas/Israels werden den vollständigen Bildern der Nachbarkulturen gegenübergestellt und zur Rekonstruktion des zugrundeliegenden religiösen Symbolsystems beigezogen. Nie zuvor wurde die Bildkunst Palästinas/Israels seit ihren Anfängen und in Bezug auf den Alten Orient in ähnlicher Weise präsentiert. Einleitungen zur Kulturgeschichte, zu Themen der Bildkunst und biblischen Bezügen ergänzen den Band.

Über den Autor

Silvia Schroer, geboren 1958, ist seit 1997 Professorin für Altes Testament mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der biblischen Umwelt an der Universität Bern. Sie ist Verfasserin zahlreicher Publikationen zu Religionsgeschichte und Ikonographie Palästinas/Israels und seiner Nachbarkulturen sowie zu feministischer Exegese und Hermeneutik.

The Digital Orientalist

The Digital Orientalist
This website is run by a dedicated team of scholars, librarians, and students. We share our experience using digital tools in the Humanities, especially as it relates to our day-to-day workflow.
Our name, The Digital Orientalist, may raise an eyebrow. We are all fully aware of the contentious meaning of ‘Orientalism’ and its relation to colonialism. We are of the opinion that enough years have gone by to pick this name up again, to convey in one word the relation between our fields of studies. In this sense we mirror similar initiatives like The Digital Classicist, The Digital Medievalist, The Digital Humanist, etc. As diverse as our fields of studies are, when it comes to digital solutions, there are many shared aspects. We therefore think we stand to benefit from talking to each other, to learn of best practices in other fields.
