On twitter a couple of days ago I came across this item by Bettany Hughes: Palladas of Alexandria c.350AD ‘in the darkness of night Zeus stood beside me and said: “Even I, a god, have learned to live with the times”. @Bettany_Hughes I confess that Palladas is not a name that I had ever heard […]
I had not realised that the important French journal, Revue des Etudes Augustiniennes, was freely available online from 1955-2005, but so it is! It’s here. Marvellous!
Severian of Gabala (fl. ca. 398 AD) was the enemy of John Chrysostom. A popular preacher at the court of Constantinople, where he preached in a pleasant Syrian accent, and favoured by the empress, he was among the various people slighted or snubbed by John Chrysostom’s officials. In consequence he became an enemy, and was […]
Bryson Sewell has finished making a new translation of the three sermons De diabolo temptatore (CPG 4332) by John Chrysostom. These are now available here: chrysostom-devil-bryson-2014.doc chrysostom-devil-bryson-2014.pdf And I hope they will become available also at Archive.org in due course, but their uploader seems to be having an off-day. The sermons are really quite interesting […]
Over the last couple of months, I have become aware of another individual who, quietly, and without any fanfare, is making a real difference to ancient history online. Her name is Carole Raddato, and she writes the Following Hadrian blog. What she is doing is travelling all over the Roman Empire, and photographing its material […]
Today I learned via Maïeul Rouquette of a fascinating court case in France, here, (in French). The question is whether editing a critical text of an ancient author creates a copyright. The dispute is between two companies, Droz and Garnier. Garnier placed online the text (without apparatus or commentary) of certain medieval texts, using the text published […]
This morning I saw the following announcement: We’re really proud to announce that EpiDoc XML versions of all 99 volumes of the monumental Corpus Scriptorum Ecclesiasticorum Latinorum (CSEL) are now being added to the Open Greek and Latin Project‘s GitHub repository! What it means, for non-techno junkies, is that someone has scanned the 99 volumes of the […]
There’s no getting away from it: the Roman city of Leptis Magna in Libya is gorgeous. It’s situated by the sea, the surrounding area is very underdeveloped, thanks to Gaddafi’s tyranny, and it gives you such a great idea of what a Roman city looked like. I’ve been twice, and would gladly go again. Even […]
This evening I was looking through some PDF’s of a Mithras reference volume, which a correspondent very kindly scanned for me some time back. I keep a copy on my travelling laptop, and so when I am working away from home, I can work on the site in the evenings in the hotel. I was, in fact, […]
