Open Access Pauly-Wissowa

 [First posted in AWOL 23 October 2010, updated 2 April 2014]

Paulys Realencyclopädie der classischen Altertumswissenschaft
At Wikisource
Paulys Realencyclopädie der classischen Altertumswissenschaft (RE) ist die umfangreichste Enzyklopädie zum Altertum. Sie wurde ab 1890 von Georg Wissowa (1859–1931) herausgegeben und 1980 abgeschlossen. Sie führte die von August Friedrich Pauly (1796–1845) begründete Real-Encyclopädie der classischen Alterthumswissenschaft in alphabetischer Ordnung (1837–1864) fort und war als komplette Neubearbeitung konzipiert. Bis heute gilt die RE als Standardwerk der Altertumswissenschaft. Viele Artikel aus den ersten Bänden dieser Enzyklopädie sind mittlerweile gemeinfrei. Möglichst viele Artikel sollen hier sukzessive mit Hilfe von Scans digitalisiert werden.

Bis jetzt wurden 13.402 Stichwörter erfasst, darunter 1.672 bloße Verweisungen. Eine vollständige Liste der bisher transkribierten Artikel gibt die Kategorie:Paulys Realencyclopädie der classischen Altertumswissenschaft. Eine Übersicht über die Bände der RE findet sich hier (über die im Internet Archive frei zugänglichen hier), das Register der Autoren hier, Listen sämtlicher Stichwörter hier.

PECL: Prototype d'Encyclopédie Céramologique en Ligne

PECL: Prototype d'Encyclopédie Céramologique en Ligne
http://pecl.fr/design/images/ceramoPole.png
Le Prototype d’Encyclopédie Céramologique en Ligne (PECL) est développé par le Céramopôle, programme transversal de la Maison Méditerranéenne des Sciences de l’Homme [MMSH] (Aix Marseille Université / CNRS). 

Le projet a été financé par l'Institut des Sciences Humaines et Sociales (InSHS) du Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), dans le cadre d’un Projet Exploratoire Premier Soutien (PEPS) obtenu en 2010, ainsi que par la MMSH dans le cadre du programme transversal Céramopôle, avec le concours du Centre Camille Jullian, du Laboratoire d’Archéologie Médiévale et Moderne en Méditerranée et du Laboratoire Méditerranéen de Préhistoire Europe Afrique

Ce site a été construit par la société AT Ressources sur la base du cahier des charges fourni en 2010 par l'équipe du Céramopôle. Les comptes rendus des réunions de préparation du PECL (avril à novembre 2010) sont disponibles sur le site web du Céramopôle.

Avertissement
La version 1 du Prototype d’Encyclopédie Céramologique en Ligne (PECL) est une version purement expérimentale. Elle comporte un nombre restreint de fiches, uniquement destinées à tester le fonctionnement des trois tables interconnectées de cette base de données : Classification, Bibliographie et Contextes.

Le Projet PECL
La céramologie a produit depuis quarante ans un accroissement exponentiel des connaissances. Ces données ont été généralement fort bien publiées mais sans réelle concertation, ce qui explique qu’elles sont aujourd’hui dispersées dans un grand nombre de monographies et de revues, certaines difficiles d’accès, et souvent divergent dans leurs conclusions et dans le vocabulaire utilisé. Il devient, de nos jours, très difficile d’appréhender la discipline si on n’est pas soi-même céramologue, cette difficulté étant particulièrement évidente pour les archéologues généralistes et les étudiants en archéologie.

Pourtant, le besoin de regrouper les données dans des « atlas » ou « dictionnaires » s’est fait sentir très tôt : un grand nombre de publications papier sont parues depuis le début des années 80 qui ont tenté de faire le point sur telle ou telle catégorie de céramique : Atlante delle forme ceramiche I (1981) et II (1985), Dicocer (1993), Amphores, comment les identifier (1991), etc. Certains ouvrages ont poussé très loin la réflexion collective et l’uniformisation des données : Conspectus formarum terrae sigillatae(1990).

Plus récemment, certaines équipes ont tenté d’utiliser les possibilités de diffusion et de mise à jour permanente offertes par internet pour élaborer une nouvelle génération de bases de données sur la céramique. On citera, à titre non exhaustif :

- Potsherd: Atlas of Roman Pottery (P. Tyers)
- Roman Amphorae: a digital resource (University of Southampton, 2005)
- Cerafim (LAMPEA, A. Gallin/S. Renault)
- ICERAMM (Information sur la CERAmique Médiévale et Moderne) (CITERES-LAT, P. Husi/O. Marlet, 2006)
 Actuellement, les sites les plus actifs concernent les timbres sur amphores grecques et romaines :
 - Ceipac Corpus (Universitat de Barcelona, J. Remesal Rodriguez, 1995) [mot de passe requis]
- Amphoralex (CEAlex, J.-Y. Empereur, G. Senol, K. Senol, 2008)
- Amphores (RTAR) (CCJ, A. Hesnard/N. Richard, 2009)

La céramologie n’échappera pas à la nécessité d’organiser son sujet d’étude, comme l’ont fait auparavant les autres disciplines, notamment dans le domaine des sciences du vivant, voire même dans le domaine des sciences juridiques. Il en va non seulement de son développement mais peut-être même de sa survie en tant que partie intégrante des sciences historiques et archéologiques.

Céramopôle, le pôle céramologie de la MMSH d’Aix-en-Provence, entend participer à ce mouvement. Al'issue d'une réunion tenue en décembre 2009, qui a réuni plus de 30 participants, dont un tiers venus d’autres universités françaises ou étrangères (Belgique et Espagne), il est apparu que si le but ultime est bien l’élaboration d’une encyclopédie céramologique en ligne internationale, cette entreprise ne pourra pas se doter, dès le départ, d’une organisation unitaire et centralisée. Au contraire, il apparaît essentiel que chaque équipe puisse développer son propre projet, à condition que ce soit sur le mode collaboratif et non concurrentiel. A moyen terme, une fédération des différents projets au sein d’un portail informatique commun est envisageable, étape intermédiaire avant une possible fusion.

C'est pourquoi le Céramopôle a constitué en 2010 un groupe de travail constitué de céramologues et d’informaticiens décidés à réfléchir à ce projet : le Prototype d'Encyclopédie Céramologique en Ligne (PECL).

Suda On-Line

[First posted in AWOL 7 January 2010. Updated 5 November 2013]

Suda On Line: Byzantine Lexicography
http://www.stoa.org/sol/icons/sun.gif

Progress Report  (as of November 5, 2013)
Assigned: 30769    Translated: 30574    Vetted: 30574
Entire list of entries
The Suda is a massive 10th century Byzantine Greek historical encyclopedia of the ancient Mediterranean world, derived from the scholia to critical editions of canonical works and from compilations by yet earlier authors. The purpose of the Suda On Line is to open up this stronghold of information by means of a freely accessible, keyword-searchable, XML-encoded database with translations, annotations, bibliography, and automatically generated links to a number of other important electronic resources. To date over 170 scholars have contributed to the project from eighteen countries and four continents. Of the 30,000-odd entries in the lexicon, over 25,000 have been translated as of this date, and more translations are submitted every day. Although our work is not done, you can already browse and search our database of translated entries, and you can use the tools we offer to do things like search for Greek words in the entire text of the Suda. You are also welcome to apply to become a contributor yourself, either as a translator or as an editor (or both). More on that below. For more information about the project, you can read this article, originally published in Syllecta Classica 11 (2000) 178-190, as well as this article by Anne Mahoney. You can also read this brief history of the project.

Online Encyclopædia Iranica

[First posted in AWOL 10 April 2010. Updated 15 September 2013]

Encyclopædia Iranica
http://www.iranicaonline.org/uploads/images/Iranica_Volumes.jpg
The Encyclopædia Iranica is dedicated to the study of Iranian civilization in the Middle East, the Caucasus, Central Asia and the Indian Subcontinent.  The academic reference work will eventually cover all aspects of Iranian history and culture as well as all Iranian languages and literatures, facilitating the whole range of Iranian studies research from archeology to political sciences.
The Encyclopædia is an international, collaborative project, based at Columbia University in the City of New York. Its compilation is overseen by the general editor Ehsan Yarshater and a team of Consulting Editors, all internationally renowned scholars of Iranian studies, who assist in the commissioning and editing of entries. The in-house editorial staff works at Columbia's Center for Iranian Studies.  Entries are solicited through invitation only, and are subjected to peer review to ensure factual reliability, scholarly objectivity, and political independence. 
In recognition of its high academic achievements the Encyclopædia has received continuous financial support, since its inception in the 1970s, from major sponsors, such as the National Endowment for the Humanities.  The non-profit Encyclopaedia Iranica Foundation is dedicated to guaranteeing the Encyclopædia's intellectual independence by covering parts of its operating budget. 
The first fascicle of the Encyclopædia's printed edition appeared in 1982, while the first version of the web-based digital edition was established in 1996. This digital version was developed in 2009-2010, in collaboration with the web design company Electric Pulp, to provide a more user-friendly interface for accessing the Encyclopædia's online content.

Encyclopédie en ligne des petits objets archéologiques.

 [First posted in AWOL 3 July 2011. Updated 8 June 2013]


Artefacts©, Encyclopédie en ligne des petits objets archéologiques
Artefacts n'est pas un produit fini, mais un programme évolutif reflétant le travail d'un groupe de chercheurs : la base de données est donc perfectible, et le lecteur attentif pourra y trouver des erreurs qui sont corrigées dès qu'elles nous sont signalées. Le but du projet est d'offrir un panorama aussi complet que possible des formes de petits mobiliers archéologiques classés par grandes périodes. Il n'est donc pas question ici de reunir un corpus d'objets, mais seulement un répertoire de formes ("types") pour lesquelles on fournit, autant que possible, une définition circonstanciée, une bibliographie choisie et une chronologie. Les objets cités et les illustrations fournies ne le sont évidemment qu'à titre d'exemple. 
 
NB : l'ensemble de la documentation d'Artefacts provient de recherches archéologiques légales et de la bibliographie scientifique.
Artefacts is not a finished product, but a evolving programme reflecting the work of a group of researchers : the database can therefore be improved, and a careful user will find some mistakes which can be corrected as soon as we are informed. The aim of the project is to offer a survey, as complete as possible, of all forms of artefacts, arranged in wide periods. A corpus of finds is out of the question, Artefacts only aims to produce an inventory of forms (types) for which will be provided, as far as possible, a detailed description, a selected bibliography and a chronology. The objects mentioned and the illustrations are only here as examples.
NB : all the material of Artefacts comes from legal archaeological research and scientific literature.
Artefacts compte à ce jour 4 266 fiches pour 133 687 objets inventoriés.

Etat d'avancement d'Artefacts

Artefacts repose sur des dépouillements dont voici la cartographie complète (état au 15 mars 2013) :

Open Access Encyclopedia: Claremont Coptic Encyclopedia

[First posted in AWOL 17 June 2011. Updated 29 May 2013]

Claremont Coptic Encyclopedia
http://ccdl.libraries.claremont.edu/ui/custom/default/collection/default/images/header-mtn-text_CCDL-hosted.jpg
 The Coptic civilization is one of the most ancient civilizations still in existence, and has vibrant manifestations in Egypt and around the world.  Various aspects of Western civilization have their roots in, or are influenced by Coptic civilization and Egyptian Christianity.
An invaluable reference tool for Coptic Studies is The Coptic Encyclopedia (Aziz S. Atiya, ed. NY: Macmillan, 1991). This monumental work, with approximately 2800 entries written by 215 scholars, covers treasures of Coptic language and literature; Copto-Arabic literature; Coptic art, architecture, archaeology, history, music, liturgy, theology, spirituality, monasticism; and biblical, apocryphal, social, and legal texts. The encyclopedia was the fruit of years of effort on the part of its Editor-in-Chief, Aziz S. Atiya (1898-1988, Distinguished Professor of History at the University of Utah), and its Principal Investigator, Lola Atiya (1917-2002, Doctor of Humane Letters). Donations by the Coptic communities in the Diaspora, a matching grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities from 1979 to 1990, along with numerous other sources, made the project possible.
In 2009 the Claremont Graduate University (CGU) School of Religion acquired the right to develop an updated and continuously expanding and evolving web-based version of The Coptic Encyclopedia. Since then, the Claremont Coptic Encyclopedia (CCE) has been gradually posting the articles of the 1991 Coptic Encyclopedia and will be continuously adding updates and new topics from the growing body of scholarship in Coptic studies at worldwide institutions. Again, the participation of the Coptic community in envisioning and funding this project was instrumental in the project coming to fruition. The partnership of CGU and the Coptic community is one of the missions of the Council for Coptic Studies at the CGU School of Religion. Please visit the Council’s website at http://www.cgu.edu/pages/5446.asp.

The progress of the CCE project depends on the strength and continuity of Coptic studies at CGU, the participation of scholars worldwide, and the availability of financial resources. It is a work in progress; please check back or subscribe to the RSS to see updates.

The CCE digital project student staff members include: Mary Ghattas, Prinny Miller, Sarah Morcos, and Ian Sundwall-Byers – all of CGU.

(b) 4 ENOCH DICTIONARY OF SECOND TEMPLE JUDAISM
(c) 4 ENOCH ABSTRACTS OF SCHOLARLY & FICTIONAL WORKS
(d) 4 ENOCH BIOGRAPHIES OF MODERN AUTHORS
4 Enoch offers a comprehensive and authoritative introduction to scholarly research in Second Temple Judaism (including Samaritan and Christian Origins), i.e. the period from Ezekiel to the completion of the New Testament and the Mishnah. It also deals with the roots of Second Temple traditions in the ancient Israelite religion (see Ancient Israel Studies), as well as the influence and legacy of those traditions for Christian, Jewish and Islamic origins and relations, up to the time of the completion of the Qur'an (see Early Christian Studies, Early Jewish Studies, and Early Islamic Studies).
With ore than 15,000 pages, "4 Enoch" provides a comprehensive WHO's WHO of the period, as well as BIOGRAPHIES of Scholars and Authors, and ABSTRACTS of scholarly and fictional Works, authored from the mid-15th century to the present, all around the world. Still a work in progress, the Encyclopedia, created in 2009 by Gabriele Boccaccini of the University of Michigan with the collaboration of Carlos A. Segovia of the Camilo Jose Cela University Madrid, is the collective work of international specialists in the field associated with the Enoch Seminar [1]
