Online Exhibition: God's Regents on Earth: A Thousand Years of Byzantine Imperial Seals

God's Regents on Earth: A Thousand Years of Byzantine Imperial Seals 
For over a thousand years the Byzantine Emperor sat in his palace, ruling over the empire as God’s regent on earth. His was the ultimate authority. The emperor was the font of all law, granter of titles and offices, distributer of largess, master of the Church, commander of the army, head of the bureaucracy, and supreme judge. The decisions of the individual who sat on the throne had repercussions throughout the Byzantine world and far beyond. Decrees, letters, judgments, and commands left Constantinople every day signed by the emperor in red ink and secured with the imperial seal. These seals not only protected and authenticated imperial documents, they also spread the emperor’s image and served as imperial propaganda. It is no accident that while one emperor chose to be depicted as a soldier, another chose to be shown as a civilian. Although Christ accompanies one emperor, another might choose St. Constantine, or the Mother of God, or perhaps simply the cross. Was his title Greek, basileus, or Latin, augustus? Did he want to emphasise his family as an imperial asset or assert his position as autokrator, the sole ruler of God’s empire on earth? The designs of the imperial seals are interesting for more than their artistic value, they provide an insight into the minds and policies of the rulers whose image they bore; they tell us not only how they wished to be viewed by the recipients of their letters, but also how they viewed themselves. Imperial seals, with their titles, images, and projection of divinely sanctioned authority, show the blend of Roman, Hellenistic, and Judaeo-Christian ingredients that went into the Byzantine imperial recipe.

This exhibition presents the imperial lead seals from the Dumbarton Oaks Collection. Sections include: a chronology of the rulers of Byzantium exploring the design and inscriptions of their seals and presenting brief biographies; an analysis of the development of imperial titulature; the iconographic choices made by usurpers; and finally a section on seals that show or reference the imperial family. We hope that after visiting this exhibit you will be inspired to explore the online catalogue of Byzantine seals in the Dumbarton Oaks collection. This project was begun in 2010, and is continually updated as more seals from our collection of 17,000 are catalogued.

AWOL has passed 800,000 page views, and is now approaching 4800 subscribers by email, just a little more than three years after I deployed that function.  In addition, a handful of subscribers get the feed in other ways.  I'm gratified that such a large number of you find AWOL interesting enough to voluntarily add another piece of email to your busy queues.

Traffic on AWOL will probably be light for the next two week while I focus my attention on some other things.  In the meantime I invite you to amuse yourself by browsing through Bookplates of Scholars in Ancient Studies. If any of you have additions, corrections or comments on that, please do get in touch with me.  I'm particularly interested if you can surface other interesting bookplates of scholars of antiquity.

As always, comments - online or offline - about AWOL are welcome.

Index of Christian Art Digital Books
Welcome to The Index of Christian Art online publications! In the firm belief that we all need to share as much scholarship as is possible, the Index of Christian Art is pleased to present an occasional series of online conference proceedings and papers. When it is not possible to publish in the traditional hardcopy format we will use the Internet for online publications. 

The first set of papers are the conference proceedings from a one day event held in Princeton University on Thursday July 12th 2012 which was devoted to Digitization and The Arts. The papers from that colloquium are presented here as they were delivered and preserve the spontaneity of the speakers. Short biographies are included.

PACTOLS (Peuples, Anthroponymes, Chronologie, Toponymes, Œuvres, Lieux et Sujets)

Thesaurus PACTOLS
Les PACTOLS sont un thesaurus géré par le programme FRANTIQ. Ils servent à interroger le catalogue collectif indexé (CCI) et d'autres bases externes. PACTOLS est l'acronyme de Peuples, Anthroponymes, Chronologie, Toponymes, Oeuvres, Lieux et Sujets. Chaque lettre correspond à un microthesaurus.
Thématiques : l'archéologie, de la Préhistoire à la "Grande Guerre" et l'Antiquité sous tous ses aspects (société, linguistique, philosophie, économie, épigraphie, etc.)
Les PACTOLS ont été créés dès 1987 suite à une forte demande de la communauté scientifique. Ils ne cessent pas d’évoluer, tout en respectant les normes des thesauri poly-hiérarchiques et multilingues. Ils sont traduits en anglais, italien, allemand et espagnol.  Les thesauri PACTOLS sont évolutifs (mise à jour constante) aussi bien pour la sémantique que pour l’informatique. Leurs évolutions sont désormais décidées au sein du groupe de travail PACTOLS.
Les logiciels, OpenTheso et OpenTheso2 , véritables logiciels de gestion et de recherche documentaire (LGRD), permettent une gestion autonome, indépendante d’une base de données précise. Les PACTOLS sont exportables en xml et en format SKOS.
Les thesaurus sont consultables en ligne par le menu "Thésaurus Pactols" ; une version imprimable (réservée aux personnes inscrites sur le site) est accessible après téléchargement.
Dans le cadre d'un appel d’offre du TGE Adonis, FRANTIQ a proposé un essai de transformation des PACTOLS en ontologie (IdR2D)  et a participé au consortium "Référentiels", pour la traduction. Depuis les PACTOLS servent de référentiels d'indexation sur le portail ISIDORE du TGE Adonis.
Des règles d’écriture régissent la création de nouveaux descripteurs.
Des statistiques permettent de faire régulièrement le point sur l’évolution des PACTOLS : nouveaux termes et nouveaux termes traduits.
 Les PACTOLS sont protégés par une licence Creative commons.

BYU Multi-spectral Imaging Project

BYU Multi-spectral Imaging Project
The Ancient Textual Imaging Group at Brigham Young University has pioneered developments into enhancing texts of deteriorated and damaged papyri using multi-spectral imaging. This process has rendered legible many stained, discolored, or faded portions of ancient documents. In effect, the process has restored the documents to a state of legibility that they have not possessed since antiquity. This research collection represents the completion of a two-year venture by the Ancient Textual Imaging Group to capture, process, and provide public access to high-quality multi-spectral images of hundreds of legibly problematic papyrus documents from collections at the University of Michigan; University of California, Berkeley; and Columbia University. This project was funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Petras Excavations

Ανασκαφές Πετρά - Petras Excavations
Με την ευκαιρία της συμπλήρωσης 25 ετών έρευνας στον Πετρά Σητείας, τη Μινωική πόλη και το ανάκτορο της Σητείας, δημιουργήσαμε αυτόν τον δικτυακό τόπο, το καλοκαίρι του 2010. Παρουσιάζονται συνοπτικά όλες οι έρευνες, ανασκαφικές και επιφανειακές, καθώς και οι μελέτες από το 1985 ως σήμερα. Επίσης παρουσιάζονται οι δράσεις εξωστρέφειας, τα εκπαιδευτικά προγράμματα, οι εκθέσεις και οι εργασίες ανάδειξης του χώρου. Από το 2006 ο Πετράς είναι ανοικτός στους πολίτες και τους επισκέπτες της Σητείας (Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο Σητείας, τηλ. 28430 23917).

Παράλληλα ο επισκέπτης του δικτυακού τόπου μπορεί να ενημερώνεται για τους συντελεστές της έρευνας, την αυξανόμενη βιβλιογραφία, αλλά και να δει πλήθος φωτογραφιών από τις ανασκαφές, τα ευρήματα και τους ανθρώπους που έχουν δουλέψει και έχουν επισκεφθεί τον Πετρά.

Επιδίωξή μας είναι η διαρκής ανανέωση του δικτυακού τόπου και περιμένουμε τις παρατηρήσεις σας που θα μας βοηθήσουν να τον βελτιώσουμε.

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the research activities at Petras, the Minoan urban settlement and palace of Siteia, the present web-site was created, in the summer of 2010.

All excavations, surface surveys and studies, since 1985, are presented here. Furthermore the public outreach, educational programs, exhibitions and the presentation of the site to the public are described. Since 2006 the Petras site is open to the citizens and the visitors of Siteia (Archaeological Museum of Siteia, tel. 28430 23917). 

The visitor of the web-site can access information on the researchers working at Petras and the increasing bibliography; furthermore many photographs are available of the excavations, the finds and the people who worked or visited the excavations. 

The web-site will be constantly up-dated and we would appreciate your comments, which will help us to improve it.
