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. 

Begin here with the Prolegomena (no frames), here with a table of contents (no frames), or here with a table of contents (frames).

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.


          

Open Access Library: Bibliotheca Chersonessitana

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

Bibliotheca Chersonessitana
http://library.chersonesos.org/graph/bg2.jpg













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 Institute launched 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 помощи Вы найдете более подробные объяснения концепции проекта и небольшое руководство для пользования нашими ресурсами.

Online Coins of the Roman Empire (OCRE)

[First posted in AWOL 16 July 2012, updated 28 April 2017]

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 a revolutionary new tool designed to help in the identification, cataloging, and research of the rich and varied coinage of the Roman Empire. The project records every published type of Roman Imperial Coinage from Augustus in 31 BC, until the death of Zeno in AD 491. This is an easy to use digital corpus, with downloadable catalog entries, incorporating over 43,000 types of coins.

As of April 2017, OCRE provides links to examples present in nearly 20 American and European databases (both archaeological and museum in context), including the ANS collection, the Münzkabinett of the State Museum of Berlin, and the British Museum, now totalling over 100,000 physical specimens. Between these 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. Furthermore, it draws findspot information from another ANS-developed resource, Coin Hoards of the Roman Republic, enabling the mapping of the distribution of early Augustan types. Geographic data are also provided by the Portable Antiquities Scheme, Antike Fundmünzen Europa, OpenContext, and other partners. For more information on project partners, please see the contributors page.

OCRE is made possible by stable numismatic identifiers and linked open data methodologies established by the Nomisma.org project. Coin type data are made available with an Open Database License. All images are copyright of their respective institutions. OCRE is built on the numbering system created by the Roman Imperial Coinage series. For details of the printed volumes of his series please visit Spink & Son (https://spinkbooks.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=60_65).

Online Comprehensive Bibliography on Syriac Christianity

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

 Comprehensive Bibliography on Syriac Christianity
http://www.csc.org.il/images/HL_pict_2.jpg
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 ...

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)
http://abia.iias.asia/images/header1_01.png
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).

History

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.

 [First posted in AWOL 16 June 2012, updated 24 March 2014]

Ancient Greek and Latin inscriptions from Upper Macedonia, Aegean Thrace and Achaia
This collection of epigraphic texts represents part of the epigraphic archives of the Institute for Greek and Roman Antiquity (KERA), which were progressively constituted since 1980 with permission and in collaboration with the corresponding Department of Antiquities of the direction of Antiquities of the Greek Ministry of Culture, to promote the systematic study and scientific exploitation of epigraphic texts as primary sources for the history, institutions, language, religion and culture of specific Greek regions in Greek and Roman Antiquity.
The collection comprises three sets of published ancient inscriptions on stone (the lower limit being the 7th century AD):
  1. from the Achaean city of Patras (Prof. A Rizakis)
  2. from Upper Macedonia (prefectures of Grevena, Kozani, Kastoria and Florina, Prof. A. Rizakis and Dr. J. Touratsoglou)
  3. from Aegean Thrace (prefectures of Xanthi, Rhodopi and Hebros: KERA researchers Drs. L. Loukopoulou, M.-G. Parissaki, S. Psoma and A. Zournatzi in collaboration with the archaeologists of the 19th Ephoria of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities D. Triantaphyllos, K. Kallintzi, K. Koutsoumanis, Ch. Karadima, E. Skarlatidou, D. Terzopoulou and P. Tsatsopoulou)
Supplements to the collection of inscriptions from Upper Macedonia, its bibliographical update, the creation of all digital entries, as well as partial additions and corrections throughout the collection have been undertaken by the Institute’s collaborator K. Lembidaki, with the assistance of K. Ananiadis, A. Vourgali, M. Stavrou, D. Stathaki and V. Psilakakou, under the supervision of P. Paschidis.
