Encoding And Annotation Of Ancient Places In Ethiopia

Solomon Gebreyes Beyene & Pietro Maria Liuzzo
Encoding places in a text and producing annotations offers scholars several ways to investigate new questions and support their research work. In this paper we present the work of annotating a text and the way in which we produced Linked Open Data to share with the Pelagios Commons. Using examples taken from the Chronicles of Christian Ethiopian kings, the paper presents the techniques used to encode the data and the visualizations and insights which can...

Document Reuse In Medieval Arabic Manuscripts

Konrad Hirschler
The new project Document Reuse in Medieval Arabic Manuscripts aims at creating a new corpus of documents from Syria. For this end it explores and digitally reconstructs the material that medieval Arabic scribes reused to produce new manuscripts. Taking the case study of Syria between the twelfth and the fifteenth centuries CE, it will show that documents and other texts did survive in many more contexts than have been considered hitherto.

Some Observations On The Coptic Reception Of The Shepherd

Dan Batovici
The Shepherd of Hermas, an early Christian apocalyptic book written in Greek in Rome of the second century, has been translated in both Akhmimic and Sahidic Coptic. This contribution revisits the surviving manuscripts of the Shepherd and discusses two issues concerning its Coptic reception which seemed settled: the dating of the earliest manuscript and the question of a split transmission of its text, with the first four Visions separated from the rest of the book.

New Evidence In Armenian Codicology: The Reconstruction Of An Unknown Sewing Structure

Marta Silvia Filippini, Lucilla Nuccetelli & Maria Letizia Sebastiani
This essay focuses on the analysis of an Armenian illuminated manuscript, discovered in 2014 in the Museo Cappuccini in Reggio Emilia and now property of the Library of the same Order in Bologna. The results of the codicological and scientific analysis of MS FMBCap Ms. Arm. 2 confirm the provenance from the fourteenth century Cilicia: the manuscript has a typical Armenian leather binding, blind-tooled with residues of the fore-edge flap and of the fastening (of...

New (And Renewed) Resources In The Field Of Manuscript Description (The 'Syntaxe Du Codex' And More ...)

Patrick Andrist & Marilena Maniaci
Structural codicology sees the codex as a complex book-object which needs to be understood both from a genetic constitutive perspective (which in our book we analyse on the basis of various ‘production units’ of a codex, UniProd) and in terms of its subsequent history (based on the retrievable ‘circulation units’, UniCirc). Each UniProd was once a part of a UniCirc.

Initial Inspection Of Reagent Damage To The Vercelli Book

Ira Rabin, Oliver Hahn, Roger Easton, Keyth T. Knox, Ken Boydston, G. Heyworth, Timoty Leonardi & Michael Phelps
The use of chemical reagents for text enhancement was quite common in the nineteenth century. Their application resulted in permanent damage, irreversibly obscuring the writing. This paper describes an effort to find a suitable technique to read the passages in the Vercelli Book that were obliterated by the use of the gallnut tincture.
