Theses online at Oxford University Research Archive

Via the excellent AWOL I learn of a digital repository for PhD theses.  Oxford, it seems, has declined to support the British Library’s EthOs initiative, preferring to keep material produced at Oxford on an Oxford website: Oxford University Research Archive.

This afternoon I did a search of the archive (from my smart phone – the site is not well adapted for it, tho), and found rather little.  But I did find some things of interest to us:

Not a great haul from one of the world’s leading classical universities; but perhaps it is early days yet.  They are clearly digitising theses, which can only be good.

    Childers’ work on the Syriac version of Chrysostom’s homilies will begin to appear in the CSCO series later this year (the first two volumes anyway, with more to follow).

    Useful to know – thanks! What will the volumes contain? A study, or an edition?

    Thank for posting the link to OURA, some neat late empire studies there, especially on Spain

    We are very fortunate to live in times when so much is accessible, just for the effort of looking!

    The volumes will be text and translation. The first two volumes (memre 1-43) are already announced:

    The rest of the memre will come in two more sets (so four more volumes to follow).
