A. LUIJENDIJK, Greeting in the Lord: Early Christians in the Oxyrhynchus Papyri


available August 2008, worldcat notwithstanding

GREETINGS IN THE LORD
Early Christians in the Oxyrhynchus Papyri
ANNEMARIE LUIJENDIJK
Publisher's blub
This is the first book-length study on Christians in the ancient Egyptian city of Oxyrhynchus, the site where some of the most important and oldest fragments of early Christian books were unearthed.

Bringing the people in dry papyrus letters and documents back to life, the book reveals how Christians lived in this city in different contexts and situations. In the first part, the image of the city's marketplace functions to address questions of Christian identity in the public sphere. The second part features a man called Sotas, bishop of Oxyrhynchus in the third century, as he is busy networking with other Christian communities, involved in teaching, book production, and fund-raising. The third part, focusing on evidence of the persecution of Christians, reveals the far-reaching power and pervasiveness of Roman bureaucracy. We learn that Christians negotiated their identity through small acts of resistance against the imperial decrees.

The papyrus letters and documents discussed in this book offer sometimes surprising insights into the everyday lives of Christians in the third and early fourth century and nuance our understanding of Christianity in this period. It is the mundane aspects of everyday life that make these papyrus documents so fascinating.

NYU's Archaeology and History Program in Egypt



New York University's Archaeology and History Program in Egypt

-Participate in excavations at Amheida (ancient Trimithis) in Dakhleh Oasis
-Study the culture of Pharaonic, Graeco-Roman, and Christian Egypt
-Travel throughout Egypt's oases and the Nile Valley
-Take informal lessons in colloquial Arabic

This is a 16-credit semester program offered each year from January to March for advanced
undergraduates.

Time in Egypt is divided into three parts, each a course for credit: a seminar on the oases of Egypt, excavations at Amheida, and the seminar on the archaeology of the Nile Valley (in the Nile Valley!). The oases seminar (January, 4 credits) concentrates on the archaeology, society, economy and culture of the oases of the Western Desert of Egypt. The field school (February, 4 credits) is located at Amheida, once a bustling town at the edge of the Roman Empire. Our aim in this portion of the program is to give you direct experience with the methods employed in a scientific, state-of-the-art excavation. In March comes a broad exposure to the archaeology of Pre-Islamic Egypt through visits to sites and museums from Aswan to Alexandria, so that students are better able to place the oases in their greater Egyptian and Roman contexts. Finally, there is an independent research paper based on some aspect of archaeology of Amheida due at the end of the academic term in May (4 credits).

For more details on this program and information on how to apply, see:

more at NYU

Applications will be reviewed May 9, 2008

EpiDoc Summer School, July 14th-18th, 2008

EpiDoc Summer School, July 14th-18th, 2008
April 23rd, 2008 by Gabriel Bodard

The Centre for Computing in the Humanties, Kings College London, is again offering an EpiDoc Summer School, on July 14th-18th, 2008. The training is designed for epigraphers or papyrologists (or related text editors such as numismatists, sigillographers, etc.) who would like to learn the skills and tools required to mark up ancient documents for publication (online or on paper), and interchange with international academic standards.You can learn more about EpiDoc from the EpiDoc home page and the Introduction for Epigraphers; you wil find a recent and user-friendly article on the subject in the Digital Medievalist. (If you want to go further, you can learn about XML and about the principles of the TEI: Text Encoding Initiative.) The Summer School will not expect any technical expertise, and training in basic XML will be provided.

REVIEW: Sergio Daris, Dizionario dei nomi geografici e topografici dell' Egitto greco-romano.

Sergio Daris, Dizionario dei nomi geografici e topografici dell' Egitto greco-romano. Supplemento 4 (2002-2005). Biblioteca degli "Studi di Egittologia e di Papirologia" - 5. Pisa-Roma: Fabrizio Serra, 2007. Pp. 147. ISBN 978-88-6227-004-5. €165.00 (pb).

En 1935, Aristide Calderini lance la publication d'un dictionnaire des noms géographiques et topographiques de l'Egypte gréco-romaine. Deux fascicules paraissent sous son seul nom: Volume I. Parte 1: "A - Halikarnasseus" (Le Caire, Società reale di geografia d'Egitto, 1935) et Volume I. Parte 2: "Halikarnassos - Aolph[" (Madrid, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, 1966). Après le décès de Calderini, Sergio Daris s'attelle à la tâche et mène l'entreprise à son terme: de 1973 à 1987, il édite quatre volumes (II-V) en treize fascicules (Milan, Cisalpina-Goliardica). Mais il n'en reste pas là. Dès 1988, il publie un volume de suppléments qui couvre les années 1935-1986 (Milan, Cisalpino-Goliardica). Deux autres volumes de suppléments relatifs aux années 1987-1993 et 1994-2001 suivent (Bonn, Habelt, 1996 et Pise, Giardini, 2003). Tous ces ouvrages portent les noms d'Aristide Calderini et de Sergio Daris. Pour le quatrième volume de suppléments, le nom d'Aristide Calderini disparaît. Il ne s'agit en aucun cas d'une usurpation, mais d'une démarche amplement justifiée. En effet, plus les années passaient, moins l'influence de l'héritage de Calderini se faisait sentir: Sergio Daris portait seul la responsabilité de ce véritable travail de bénédictin.

Of all ancillary disciplines that fall under the general rubric of Ancient Studies, papyrology probably exhibits the widest reach, contributing to literary and religious studies; economic, political and social history; linguistics; the histories of medicine and science, etc. Perhaps no other event highlights this extraordinary breadth more clearly than the triennial International Congress of Papyrology. The 24th Congress, which took place in Helsinki in the summer of 2004, was no exception, and the two-volume collection of proceedings that forms the subject of this review goes a long way in reflecting the broad interests of papyrologists, even if the great success of the event is muted to an extent by the quality of some contributions.

Karanis and Dime Database online at Kelsey Museum


This Db includes information from the Record of Objects, with valuable details on the circumstances of each find.

Directions: from the above link (Kelsey Museum of Archaeology: Research) click on Kelsey FileMaker Online databases (log-in as "guest" leave password blank),
then click on Excavation records,
then Karanis.

To search click on magnifying glass icon (top left) - and set Site (also upper left) pulldown menu to Karanis (or Dime)
Can be searched by location ("level" - a pulldown menu in top-right) and unit: so the granary C123 is level C unit 123.
One can also search for types of objects using the Artifact Description field: e.g. wax tablet,
or else use the pull-down menu labelled "Object Type" to find "writing implement."

Thanks to Terry Wilfong showing me this.
