Fragments: Interdisciplinary Approaches to the Study of Ancient & Medieval Pasts

Description

Volume 1- (2011-). Open to the world.|Fragments, an open-access and peer-reviewed journal is published by Michigan Publishing, a division of the University of Michigan Library. The journal's first articles were published in July 2011. Fragments provides a forum for dialogue and exchange between scholars in all fields of the humanities and social sciences who study the premodern world. The journal encourages scholars to pursue subjects of broad interest to colleagues working in other places and times, and to pursue comparative and connective approaches in investigating the past. The editors also invite scholars to explore interdisciplinary approaches, such as those that synthesize the insights of textual scholarship and archaeology, or history and sociology. The broadest aim of Fragments is to transcend fragmentation: to foster research that overflows the boundaries of various well-established and vital traditions in order to generate new, integrated ways of thinking about the premodern past.

Codices Vossiani Latini Online

Description

"The Codices Vossiani Latini Online publishes all 363 codices which form the world-famous Latin part of Isaac Vossius’ manuscript collection held at Leiden University Library. The Codices Vossiani Latini count a large number of early medieval manuscripts (a whopping 76 Carolingian manuscripts dating from before 900), including major sources of many classic texts. Famous are the oldest sources of Lucretius’ De natura rerum, of Cicero’s philosophical works, and the earliest manuscript of Plinius’ Historia naturalis known to be produced north of the Alps (Northumbria, eighth century). Other highlights include an illustrated herbal from around 600 and the Aratea, an astronomical treatise from around 840, manufactured at the court of Louis the Pious with 39 beautiful miniatures of the constellations....

The 363 codices in all comprise 40,278 openings, resulting in 84,266 images, including covers and flyleaves.

The manuscript collection is enriched by detailed information drawn from by K. A. de Meyier's catalogues of the codices, providing users, both students and researchers, with essential information on the content, context, and physical appearance of each codex."

Flavius Josephus Online

Description

Online version of Flavius Josephus: Translation and Commentary (edited by Steve Mason) with the addition of the Greek text in the form of Niese's editio major: Benedikt Niese, Flavii Josephi opera (7 volumes, Berlin 1885-1895).

Presents the edited Greek source text and new literal English translation and literary-historical commentary en face 

Further content will be added as released, with Book 11 of the Antiquities as the next expected installment. 

Valuable for the study of classical antiquity, biblical history, early Judaism, Christian origins, and the political history of Palestine under Roman rule.

"Flavius Josephus, the first-century Jewish historian, is without a doubt the most important witness to ancient Judaism from the close of the biblical period to the aftermath of the destruction of the temple in 70 CE. After fighting against the Romans in the war of 66-73 and surrendering in the earliest phase of the campaign, he moved to Rome where he began a productive literary career. His four surviving works - Judean War, Judean Antiquities, Life, and Against Apion, in thirty Greek volumes - provide the narrative structure for interpreting the other, more fragmentary written sources and physical remains from this period. Josephus' descriptions of the Temple, the Judean countryside, Jewish-Roman relations and conflicts, and groups and institutions of ancient Judea have become indispensable for students of early Judaism, Classics, and of Christian origins alike."
