ICG - Inscriptiones Christianae Graecae

Ancient inscription
A database of early Christian inscriptions from Asia Minor and Greece
The Inscriptiones Christianae Graecae (ICG), which was initiated in 2008 within the Excellence Cluster 264 Topoi, consists of a digital collection of early Greek Christian inscriptions from Asia Minor and Greece dating from ca. II–VI CE.

Each ICG entry features the original Greek text, a German or English translation, a concise critical apparatus and commentary, images (whenever available), as well as all the relevant information pertaining to dating, ancient and modern provenances, current location, and circumstances of discovery (whenever such information is known).

The collection can be searched by ancient (‘Site’) or modern (‘Holder’) locations, type , or dating, under the ‘Search’ tab.

(Please note that the same inscription may be included in several sub-folders. For example, an inscription approximately dated between 200-500 will be included in three folders: 3. century, 4. century, and 5. century.)
