Open Access Corpus Medicorum Graecorum / Latinum

[First posed in AWOL 24 March 2010. Updated 30 June 2012]

Corpus Medicorum Graecorum / Latinum

In der Arbeitsstelle befindet sich eine umfangreiche Sammlung von Filmen und Photokopien von Handschriften antiker medizinischer Texte in griechischer, lateinischer und arabischer Sprache; diese Materialien werden den auswärtigen Mitarbeitern des Vorhabens für ihre Editionsarbeiten zur Verfügung gestellt.
Die in den Besitz der Arbeitsstelle übergegangenen Teile von Nachlässen renommierter Gelehrter (K. Deichgräber, H. Gossen, G. Helmreich, J. Ilberg, H. Schöne) enthalten Vorarbeiten für Texteditionen unserer Reihen und das Manuskript zu einem nicht publizierten "Lexikon der Naturwissenschaften für das klassische Altertum" in 11 Mappen.
Die 40 Mappen umfassenden handschriftlichen Materialien, die zur Vorbereitung des Katalogs von H. Diels, Die Handschriften der antiken Ärzte, I. u. II. Teil, 1. Nachtrag, Berlin 1905-1908, dienten, bestehen in Beschreibungen von Handschriften medizinischen Inhalts aus den Beständen zumeist europäischer Bibliotheken.
Die Handbibliothek des Akademienvorhabens, die systematisch erweitert wird, zählt zu ihren Beständen Textausgaben der antiken medizinischen Autoren vom Beginn des 16. Jahrhunderts bis in die Gegenwart, die dazugehörige Sekundärliteratur, spezielle Arbeiten zur antiken Medizin sowie allgemeine medizinhistorische Darstellungen und medizinische Nachschlagewerke.
Die in Karteiform angelegte umfassende Bibliographie zur Geschichte der antiken Medizin wird seit 2002 auch in Form einer Datenbank fortgeführt.
The CMG features an extensive collection of films and photocopies of ancient medical manuscripts in Greek, Latin and Arabic; these materials have been made accessible to foreign project collaborators for use in preparing their editions.

That portion of the estate of renowned scholars (K. Deichgräber, H. Gossen, G. Helmreich, J. Ilberg, H. Schöne) which has come into the possession of the project office contains preliminary work for the text editions in our series, as well as a manuscript for an unpublished “Lexicon of Sciences for Classical Antiquity”, in 11 folders.

The 40 folders of extensive handwritten materials that served in the preparation of H. Diels’ catalogue, Die Handschriften der antiken Ärzte, Parts I and II, Supplement 1, Berlin 1905-1908, contain descriptions of medical manuscripts from the collections of predominantly European libraries.

The library of the Academy project, which is being systemically enlarged, numbers among its holdings text editions of ancient medical authors from the beginning of the 16th century to the present, the corresponding secondary literature, special works on ancient medicine, as well as general medical histories and medical reference books.

Originally compiled in index card form, the extensive bibliography for the history of ancient medicine has, since 2002, also been maintained as a database.

Online Publications

Within the framework of the “Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities”, the CMG is eager to make the results of the project freely available to the scientific community and the general public.
Consequently, special care should be taken to ensure that unavailable volumes, of which often only few copies are in circulation, be made available once again to the scientific community.
To this end, the CMG has planned various digital projects:
  1. Online editions
    Under the heading “Online editions”, visitors will find (with the exception of the last CMG volume published, V 5.1), all volumes of the CMG, CML, Suppl. and Suppl. Or. series available for study. These volumes may be selected and browsed through, or opened to a specified page.
  2. Manuscript Catalogue (Diels)
    Under this heading, visitors will find the somewhat outdated, but still authoritative, manuscript catalogue of ancient medical literature made at the Berlin Academy under the leadership of Hermann Diels in preparation for the CMG. The catalogue has been expanded and emended numerous times. The bibliographical details of the published Addenda and Corrigenda may also be viewed here. More precise information regarding the manuscript tradition may be obtained from the printed volumes, or upon inquiry at the project office.
  3. Bibliographies to Hippocrates and Galen (Fichtner)
    In agreement with Gerhard Fichtner (Tübingen) the Project Office makes available PDF-files of the bibliographical reference works for private use.
  4. Editorial guidelines
    The editorial guidelines are currently being revised. Please address all inquiries to the project office.

Day of Archaeology 2012

Day of Archaeology 2012: A Day in the Life of Archaeologists
Day of Archaeology

About the Project

Have you ever wondered what archaeologists really get up to? Is it all just digging or is there a lot more to it? The Day of Archaeology project aims to give you a window into the daily lives of archaeologists from all over the world.

Day of Archaeology 2011

The first ever Day of Archaeology in 2011 had over 400 contributing archaeologists, from those working in the field through to specialists working in laboratories and behind computers, and their posts chronicled what they did on one day, July 29th 2011. This date was chosen to coincide with the Festival of British Archaeology, which runs annually in July.

View the past entries, or explore using the categories at the top of each page.

How it all began

Day of Archaeology was born after a Twitter conversation between PhD students and project organisers, Lorna Richardson and Matt Law, during the third annual Day of Digital Humanities in March 2011. They thought it would be interesting and fun to organise something similar to the Day of DH for those working or volunteering in (or studying) archaeology around the world. Thanks to some very generous offers of time, support, web design know how, and server space from digitally-minded colleagues (the server space from Daniel Pett of the British Museum), an organising ‘committee’ of sorts was formed, and the idea quickly became reality.

VMBA: Virtual Magic Bowl Archive

 [First posted in AWOL 17 May 2011. Updated 27 June 2012]

VMBA: Virtual Magic Bowl Archive

Virtual Magic Bowl Archive logo
The aim of VMBA is to provide an environment that will allow collaborative work on material that is otherwise difficult to access or unavailable. The material within this archive consists, at this stage, of parts of three collections: The Moussaieff Collection, The Dehays Collection and The Barakat Collection. By providing access to this material to a number of scholars and their students we aim to encourage the production of critical editions of these texts and their publication. A single portal providing access to a shared virtual environment where this can occur provides a convenient forum for collaboration between a small group of scholars from different institutions spread in a number of countries.
Within VMBA scholars can work on material collaboratively. The virtual archive provides an environment within which scholars and students can work in view of each other and take full advantage of the expertise of the whole collective. Additionally, it will foster a mentoring approach by encouraging the participation of post graduate students who can benefit from the watchful eye, comments and suggestions of the more experienced scholars.
VMBA is the product of a variety of collaborations within The University of Southampton and without. I would like to thank and acknowledge the support and very good will of the EdShare and i-Solutions teams as well as other administrative and academic colleagues at The University of Southampton. I would also like to thank my academic collaborators who have been partners in the formation of the concept and have offered great encouragement throughout. We are all thankful to Dr Moussieff, Mr Dehays and the Barakat Gallery for providing access to their collections for the purposes of academic study.

Prosopography of the Babylonian Magic Bowls: An Introduction

Ortal-Paz Saar
The main reason for compiling a database of personal names included in the Babylonian magic bowls is a desire to find out more about the individuals behind the magic. Who were the people that made use of magical texts and magical items? What can we say about their personal lives, as reflected in the articles of magic they left behind? There are several ways to approach these questions, and one of them is prosopography.

 The prosopographic database uploaded on the Southampton University website currently comprises names from almost all the magic bowls that have been published so far, be they Jewish Aramaic, Syriac or Mandaic texts. Since there is no full bibliography of the subject, there are likely to be some publications still missing from the database, yet these are probably few. The database covers all the major publications of magic bowls corpora (e.g. Montgomery 1913, Naveh and Shaked 1985 and 1993, Levene 2003, Müller-Kessler 2005), in addition to numerous articles that present several bowls (e.g. Gordon 1937 and 1941, Geller 1986), or only one or two bowls (e.g. Obermann 1940, Hunter 1994). Each item is significant, since every bowl that contains personal names may shed important light on the questions raised by the database. In addition to personal names originating in magic bowls, the database also includes a small number of names derived from lead and parchment amulets that appear to belong to approximately the same chronological and geographical frame as the incantation bowls. These items are clearly marked as distinct from the bowls, yet being a similar type of magical artifact, the personal names they contain were included in the database...

Inscriptiones Graecae in Croatia Repertae

Digitalizacija antičkih grčkih natpisa s područja Hrvatske - Inscriptiones Graecae in Croatia Repertae (IGCR)
Nino Zubović
Nino Zubovic's pilot project, which received startup assistance from the Department of Classical Philology of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Zagreb, aims to create a digital, EpiDoc corpus of the Greek inscriptions attested and preserved on the territory of present-day Croatia. Methodologically, it shares goals with the U.S. Epigraphy Project, but excludes Latin inscriptions as these are being researched for CIL by the Department of Archaeology.

ClassicsTeaching.com

ClassicsTeaching.com ...dedicated to teacher training in Classics
For those who love their subject and would like to work with young people there is no better career than Classics teaching. Not only does it give you the opportunity to draw on and develop your subject knowledge and communication skills, it also gives you significant responsibility and the freedom to use your imagination and creativity from the moment you enter the classroom. In the words of a trainee who moved into teaching after working for a number of years as an accountant:

‘The thing that really made me leave was the fact that it didn’t use all of me, and I wanted something that made me use my creativity, made me think on my feet.’


But a successful career in Classics teaching depends on having the thoroughness and professionalism of the training you receive when you start out on teaching. The aim of this site is to provide information on the different routes through training that are available for future Classics teachers.
