     Page Header
    As the name Ancient Narrative indicates, the areas of interest of the new journal are: Greek, Roman, Jewish novelistic traditions, including novels proper, the "fringe", as well as the fragments; narrative texts of the Byzantine age, early Christian narrative texts - and the reception of these works in modern literature, film and music. Ancient Narrative encourages approaches which range from editorial and philological work on these texts, and literary-theoretical studies, to theological, sociological, cultural and anthropological approaches. No particular area or methodology is preferred. The audience of our journal will thus comprise not only those who are working mainly in classical or religious studies, but all those who are interested in the birth and development of narrative fiction in all its aspects, from antiquity to the modern times.

    Ancient Narrative (AN) is first and foremost an electronic journal, in which selected articles will be discussed during a period of several months. At the end of the year the authors have the opportunity to revise their articles. A volume containing all revised articles of the past year will appear both in print and on the website.
    AN also publishes special, theme-oriented issues. Your suggestions for such issues are very welcome.

    AN is the electronic continuation of the Petronian Society Newsletter (ed. Gareth Schmeling) and the Groningen Colloquia on the Novel (eds. Heinz Hofmann and Maaike Zimmerman). Therefore, AN will, besides full articles, publish bibliographical information as well as brief notes on relevant subjects. The editors will also invite specialists for reviews, which will be published in the electronic journal and in the annual printed volume of AN.

    Open Access Journal: The Silk Road: The journal of the Silk road Foundation

    [First posted in AWOL  11 December 2009. Updated 20 July 2018]

    The Silk Road: The journal of the Silk road Foundation
    ISSN: 2153-2060
    http://www.silk-road.com/newsletter/vol10/images/coverforvol10thumb.jpg
    Our journal is dedicated to public education about the history and cultures of Eurasia, especially in pre-modern times. While we invoke the historic "Silk Road" in our title, our view of the Silk Roads is an expansive one, encompassing pre-history, the era beginning with the establishment of trans-Eurasian trade and cultural interaction some two millennia ago, and the subsequent history of those interactions down through the centuries. Modern evocations of cultural traditions are of interest, especially in the areas which historically have been the domain of pastoral nomads. We publish articles by well known scholars and those who have other expertise on the regions and material of interest. Where possible we are communicating the results of the latest research, including new archaeological investigations. The journal also serves as the means to alert readers about upcoming programs connected with Silk Road topics.
    Note: Volume 15 (2017) of The Silk Road is the last one that will be printed in hard copy at the same time it is posted on-line at the Silkroad Foundation website. The electronic publication of the journal will continue at The Silk Road , which already has an archive of all the volumes of the journal to date and links to all the individual articles. All future submissions for the journal should be sent to the new editor, Prof. Justin Jacobs, whose contact information is posted on that website.
    All the earlier volumes of the journal are now archived, with links to individual articles, at Issues. All future numbers of the journal will be found there.

      The Homer Multitext Microservice

      The Homer Multitext Microservice
      The Homer Multitext produces integrated data on Greek Epic poetry, its language, its evolution over time, the traditions of scholarship surrounding it, and the physical artifacts, manuscripts and papyri, that are our only evidence. For a concise explanation of what the HMT publishes, please see https://github.com/homermultitext/hmt-archive/blob/master/overview.md.
      At the same time, we Project Architects of the HMT, Neel Smith and Christopher Blackwell, are interested in making this data as widely accessible as possible. The data is released in CEX Format, a plain-text serialization of data organized according to defined abstract data models. We have developed code libraries in Scala implementing these abstract data models. These libraries provide the greatest flexibility in manipulating, locating, aggregating, and transforming the data of the Homer Mulititext.
      For users who may not want to write code directly, we have provided an online application offering a graphical user interface for interacting with HMT data using the Cite Architecture’s Scala libraries.
      For those who might want to write their own applications that interact with the HMT data, we provide a collection of microservices.
      The examples below demonstrate the Scala Cite Services (Akka) application, SCS-Akka, running at beta.hpcc.uh.edu/scs/, and (as of July 19, 2018) serving data from the 2018g Release of the Homer Multitext Data.
      The service accepts requests via HTTP, and returns JSON expressions of CITE objects. We have published a library in Scala for de-marshalling those JSON expressions into CITE data objects.
      The CiteApp web-based application for the Homer Multitext gets its data from this service, and indeed the web-application and the microservice were developed jointly.
      This collection of microservices is serving current data from the Homer Multitext, edited by Casey Dué and Mary Ebbott, a project of the Center for Hellenic Studies of Harvard University.
      For more information on this service, please see https://github.com/cite-architecture/scs-akka.
      For information on the CITE Architecture, please see https://cite-architecture.github.io.
      Report bugs by filing issues on GitHub.

      Relations

      CITE Relations are associations of URN to URN, with the relationship specified by a Cite2 URN.

      Commentary Data Model

      If a library includes CiteRelations and implements the Commentary datamodel, comments associated with passages of text can (optionally) be attached to replies for a corpus of texts.

      Documented Scholarly Editions (DSE) Data Model

      The DSE Data model consists of a CITE Collection of objects, each documenting a three-way relationship between (a) a text-bearing artifact, (b) a documentary image (ideally with a region-of-interest defined), and © a citable passage of text.
      (The dse=true parameter is valid for all object-searching, as well as for retrieval of individual objects or ranges of objects.)

      The Association for the protection of Syrian Archaeology (or APSA) has been first a Facebook page and a YouTube channel. It is now a Website in order to facilitate browsing and list a greater number of news items. It is intended above all to inform, that is, to gather and publish news about the threats and damages currently suffered by the Syrian archaeological and historical heritage. It is also designed to alert the scientific community and international authorities, either cultural or political. Its content is made of wires, press articles and videos. Wires are authored by the administrators of the page. They disclose information that have been verified beforehand. Sources remain confidential for security reasons. Members of the APSA are primarily voluntary people who are eager to contribute their skills (in the domains of science, journalism, web technology etc.) in safeguarding the Syrian heritage. They are Syrian citizens and also nationals of other countries.

      Analysis and Edition of the Greek Textual Transmission
      This project takes a new look at an old text. The Bible is a fundamental book for the history of religious beliefs, cultural history, art history as well as many other fields. For centuries it has been read and copied multiple times. Thousands of medieval manuscripts survive. The process of transmission is con¬sidered here from a totally new perspective. While biblical manuscripts have so far been largely ana¬lysed as witnesses to an original text (“Urtext”), this project approaches each manuscript as a single witness to an act of reading and re-interpreting the text. In recent literary theory, attention has been drawn to “paratexts”, i.e. all material accompanying a main text. Virtually all biblical manuscripts have some of these features. Examples include brief introductions, biographies, tables of contents, poems, cross-references, prayers, and indexes.

      However, these paratexts have been neglected by scholars for two reasons: firstly because biblical studies traditionally concentrate on the “inspired text” itself; secondly because of the sheer amount of available material, which far exceeds the capacities of a single scholar. Moreover, being very short, these paratexts have often remained below the detection threshold, and since we are dealing with a rich and “liquid” transmission, many of them also present a methodological challenge. 

      The project therefore adopts a new approach. Firstly, it catalogues all available material in an e Clavis, taking into account recent developments in the fields of structural codicology and digital technology. Secondly, it develops a set of categories according to which each paratext of the New Testament is edited according to internal criteria. This is done with a view to the intrinsic value of each manuscript witness. The final result will be a comprehensive and totally new picture of the Biblical text’s “journey” through the centuries.

      The Latin is accompanied by extensive commentary that explores the meaning and context of the works, while interpretative essays serve as a model for students developing their own critical writing. Many of our engaging and lucid textbooks also offer study questions and background information as well as the latest scholarship. Also available in free interactive editions with teachers’ comments, they are vital resources for all students of Latin.
