Rhoby, Inscriptions in Byzantium and Beyond, open access volume

Andreas Rhoby writes to tell us that his edited volume, Inscriptions in Byzantium and Beyond. Methods – Projects – Case Studies (Veröffentlichungen zur Byzanzforschung Nr. 38), Wien 2015, is available both in print, and some chapters as open access from http://hw.oeaw.ac.at/7674-9?frames=yes.

The present book, the first collective volume entirely devoted to aspects of Byzantine epigraphy, mainly comprises papers delivered at two international meetings (Vienna 2010, Sofia 2011). The book is divided into four sections and includes among others the following contributions: after an introductory article about the “history” of the discipline of Byzantine epigraphy Cyril Mango tries to define the term “Byzantine inscription” and its limits. Vincent Debiais offers some interesting observations by comparing medieval Latin inscriptions from the West with Byzantine epigraphic traditions. The second section of the book bears the title “Methods of Editing Byzantine Inscriptions”: while the paper of Peter Schreiner discusses the urgent necessity of creating a new epigraphic initiative within Byzantine Studies, Walter Koch describes the Western medieval inscription projects in detail. Both Guglielmo Cavallo and Erkki Sironen discuss editorial guidelines while Charlotte Roueché stresses the advantages of creating online-corpora, and Joel Kalvesmaki describes his recently published epigraphic font “Athena Ruby”. The third section covers articles which report current epigraphic projects: two projects from Greece presented will be published within databases. Maria Xenaki discusses the epigraphic wealth of Cappadocia and its hardly studied graffiti. The last section is devoted to case studies articles. Their content ranges from Late Antiquity (Sencer Şahin, Mustafa Sayar) until the middle and the late Byzantine period (Ida Toth, Linda Safran).

Opening Ceremony, 30 March 2015, h. 17.00

 

L’epigrafia moderna nacque nell’Ottocento quando , illustre studioso di storia romana, di diritto e di epigrafia, esportò in Italia il metodo storico-filologico tedesco e lo divulgò presso gli studiosi di antichità. Ne nacque una collaborazione italo-tedesca che permise la redazione di uno dei primi volumi del Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum (la più importante raccolta di iscrizioni romane mai realizzata) dedicato al Piemonte romano. In Piemonte, Mommsen si servì della collaborazione di alcuni intellettuali e studiosi di antichità tra i quali si distinse per rigore scientifico , professore di Architettura e archeologo. La corrispondenza tra i due, conservata nella Biblioteca Reale di Torino e nella Staatsbibliothek di Berlino, consente di seguire la storia di questo sodalizio scientifico, che si tramutò nel tempo in autentica amicizia, e di approfondire l’importante realtà culturale della Torino post-unitaria.

AXON. A Selection of Greek Historical Inscriptions.

Posted on behalf of Stefania De Vido

 

The scientific team of the Greek Epigraphy Laboratory of the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice presented in Milan (SAEG IV, 14-16 January 2015) the epigraphic project, “AXON. A Selection of Greek Historical Inscriptions”, a tool for study and research completely missing from the Italian scene. This project was conceived within the Greek Epigraphy Laboratory itself, which is meant to be its scientific and operational headquarters.

Documents will be considered dating from the birth of the polis in the Archaic Age to 31 BC: these chronological boundaries ensure contextual homogeneity and correspond to the conventional definition of ‘Greek history’. Furthermore, texts will be selected according to a broader notion of ‘historical’ inscription, which includes those documents relevant not only for their political and institutional contents, but also for the social as well as cultural issues they display. A first selection of inscriptions – 80 to 100 texts from the 8th to the 2nd centuries BC – will be published along with thorough critical apparatus as well as a ‘genetic’ lemma, Italian translation, and commentary (Carocci editore, ed. by C. Antonetti and S. De Vido).

In the meantime, a database is being brought into existence, in order to offer a potentially ever growing online edition of a wider selection of documents, provided with complete lemma and critical apparatus, Italian translation, commentary, and updated bibliography; this digital anthology will be progressively improved by scholars, and will be freely accessible. Nowadays academics have several high-standard epigraphic databases at their disposal: our database, homogeneous as it is with the major ones from a conceptual point of view, will nonetheless contribute to the international panorama by helping provide a shared epigraphic vocabulary, as well as offering the scholarly world a SEG-derived widely implemented bibliography, and accurate indexing.

In conclusion, “AXON” aims to establish a long-term synergy between Italian and foreign epigraphists and historians, beyond disciplinary boundaries, involving experts in language, dialects, and archaeology, in order to create a tool bound to prove useful for a wide range of potential users.
