The Aleppo Codex

[First posted in AWOL 10 January 2011, updated 27 February 2017]

The Aleppo Codex
The Aleppo Codex, the most splendid, old, and accurate manuscript of the Bible, is presented here for the first time in full color photograph, permitting the reader to examine the handiwork of the greatest of the Masoretes, who were active in Tiberias in the tenth century, Aharon Ben Moshe Ben Asher, and to gain an impression of the way the Masoretes worked to preserve the accurate text of the Bible and the reading tradition. 
The Aleppo Codex is a full manuscript of the entire Bible, which was written in about 930. For more than a thousand years, the manuscript was preserved in its entirety in important Jewish communities in the Near East: Tiberias, Jerusalem, Egypt, and in the city of Aleppo in Syria. However, in 1947, after the United Nations Resolution establishing the State of Israel, it was damaged in riots that broke out in Syria. At first people thought that it had been completely destroyed. Later, however, it turned out that most of the manuscript had been saved and kept in a secret hiding place. In 1958, the Aleppo Codex was smuggled out of Syria to Jerusalem and delivered to the President of the State of Israel, Izhak Ben-Zvi.
Once the Aleppo Codex reached Israel, precise study of it began in many areas. Scholars of the Masora and of the text of the Bible took note of its special status among the manuscripts related to it. It was found that the match between the spelling of the Aleppo Codex and the comments of the Masora was excellent, far better than the match of other manuscripts. Similarly, the vocalization signs in the Aleppo Codex were examined and described, along with the cantillation marks, the system of ge’iyot (a kind of accent mark), and the apparatus of the Masora. All of these terms will be explained and demonstrated in this site...

Open Access Journal: Prometheus. Rivista di studi classici

 [First posted in AWOL 8 August 2013, updated 27 February 2017]

Prometheus: Rivista di studi classici
ISSN 0391-2698 (print)
ISSN 2281-1044 (online)
Fondata da Adelmo Barigazzi nel 1975, la rivista Prometheus si è dedicata programmaticamente alla ricerca scientifica sui testi letterari classici greci e latini, nella convinzione che uno studio analitico e filologicamente approfondito dei testi antichi possa giovare ancora fortemente alla formazione culturale dei giovani della nostra età.
La rivista si richiama alla più genuina tradizione fiorentina degli studi classici, che ebbe in Giorgio Pasquali un grande interprete del mondo antico, maestro impareggiabile di ricerca e di metodo. Si occupa quindi di testi sia greci che latini, considerati espressione di un'unica letteratura in due lingue, e si caratterizza per una vocazione squisitamente critico-testuale ed esegetica.
Ampio spazio viene dato da un lato agli studi sulla tradizione manoscritta, alla costituzione e alla critica del testo e, dall'altro, all'analisi filologica, all'interpretazione e al commento degli scritti, per una loro valorizzazione e comprensione letteraria storicamente inquadrata.

Digital Giza: The Giza Project at Harvard University

Digital Giza: The Giza Project at Harvard University
The Giza Project began in 2000 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, with the goal of digitizing all of the archaeological documentation from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston – Harvard University expedition to Giza, Egypt (circa. 1904-1947) and making that information freely available online for anyone to use. Since moving to Harvard in 2011, the Project has expanded its scope, partnering with other institutions around the world that excavated at Giza, to bring together as much data as possible about this complex site. The process of integrating and standardizing all of these records is ongoing.

In addition, the Project has utilized this vast quantity of information to begin building a 3D virtual reconstruction of the Giza Plateau as it may have looked when first built, providing new ways to sightsee, explore, and learn about the pyramids and their surrounding cemeteries. To date, we have modeled approximately 20 tombs and monuments in detail, with many hundreds more still to be done.

With support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, we are currently developing Digital Giza, a website which seeks to integrate this virtual environment with more than a hundred years of scholarly research about Giza, using cutting edge technology to study the distant past and preserve knowledge about this important cultural heritage site for the future. We continue to explore and develop new interactive ways to experience ancient Giza, including virtual and augmented reality apps, 3D printing of ancient artifacts, and online teaching initiatives. 

For more information about how you can support the Giza Project, please see our support page.

Demotische Wortliste (DWL)

Demotische Wortliste (DWL)
In erster Linie soll hiermit den Demotisten ein Suchwerkzeug für die Editionsarbeit an die Hand gegeben werden, das über die Möglichkeiten mit den herkömmlichen (gedruckten) Wörterbüchern hinausgeht. Jede elektronische demotische Wortliste, in der die Umschrift berücksichtigt ist, erlaubt die Suche nach Wortteilen, was bei der Arbeit an fragmentierten Texten schon sehr hilfreich ist. 

Bei der Textentzifferung ergibt sich aber oft die Situation, daß die Determinierung eines ansonsten ganz oder teilweise zerstörten Wortes erhalten ist - ebenfalls ganz oder nur zum Teil. Daher ermöglicht die hier bereitgestellte Datenbank auch die Suche nach Determinierungen der demotischen Wörter, selbstverständlich in Kombination mit Recherchen nach dem Lautkörper der Wörter...
