Juristische Begriffe im ersten Korintherbrief des Paulus. Eine semantisch-lexikalische Untersuchung auf der Basis
der zeitgenössischen griechischen Papyri, TYCHE Supplementband 7, Wien 2009
Amphilochios PAPATHOMAS

Die Monographie untersucht die zahlreichen Termini juristischen Charakters, die im ersten Brief des Apostels Paulus an die korinthische Christengemeinde vorkommen. Es wird gezeigt, dass die Anzahl dieser Begriffe wesentlich größer ist, als man bis jetzt geglaubt hat. Ihr Vorkommen beschränkt sich nicht nur auf Passagen, in denen das Verhalten der korinthischen Christen bezüglich Rechtsstreitigkeiten und anderer juristischer Vorgänge diskutiert wird, sondern auf den gesamten Brief. Die juristischen Termini werden auf dem Hintergrund der griechischen dokumentarischen Papyri und Ostraka systematisch analysiert. Damit wird die rechtliche Dimension des Wortschatzes des Briefes, die dem antiken Christen sofort erkennbar gewesen sein muss, dem heutigen Leser aber über weite Strecken verborgen bleibt, deutlich gemacht. Ferner wird untersucht, wie genau Paulus die rechtliche Fachterminologie seiner Zeit kennt und in welchem Maß er aus dem juristischen Standardwortschatz schöpft oder davon abweicht: indem er bekannten Wörtern neue Bedeutungsnuancen beilegt, neue Kombinationen von Begriffen einführt und nicht-technisches Sprach- und Gedankengut der heidnischen bzw. jüdischen Literatur verwendet. So wird gezeigt, inwiefern seine Phraseologie und Ideen die reale juristische Praxis seiner Zeit reflektieren und wie viele von den juristischen Termini des 1Kor wörtlich aus dem Gerichtsjargon entlehnt sind und reale juristische Vorgänge oder Institutionen bezeichnen. Parallel dazu wird untersucht, welche und wie viele Rechtsbegriffe metaphorisch gebraucht werden und dazu dienen, den Mitgliedern der korinthischen Gemeinde und den Christen im allgemeinen durch das vertraute Bild der juristischen Praxis wesentliche Inhalte des neuen Glaubens und wichtige Normen für den Alltag der frühchristlichen Gemeinden zu vermitteln. Schließlich werden die aus der Studie gewonnenen Erkenntnisse über den paulinischen Gebrauch der juristischen Begriffe für ein besseres Verständnis der Rhetorik des Apostels ausgewertet.

Das Buch ist für folgende Fächer interessant: Theologie und Neutestamentliche Bibelwissenschaft, Klassische Philologie, Alte Geschichte, Papyrologie, Rechtsgeschichte, Sprachwissenschaft, Lexikographie.

Legal terms in the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians. A semantic-lexical study based on contemporary Greek
papyri, TYCHE Supplementary Volume 7, Vienna 2009
Amphilochios PAPATHOMAS

The monograph examines the numerous terms of legal nature which occur in the apostle Paul‘s first letter written to the Corinthian religious community. It will be demonstrated that the number of these terms is substantially higher than what has until now been generally believed. Their incidence is not only limited to passages in which the conduct of Corinthian Christians relative to legal disputes and other judicial procedures is discussed, but rather throughout the entire letter. The legal terms are systematically analyzed in consideration of the background created by the Greek documentary papyri and ostraca. In this way the lawful dimension of the letter‘s vocabulary is made plain. This vocabulary must have been immediately recognizable for the ancient Christian, but is today in many passages not readily identifiable for the modern reader. Moreover, this inquiry
will evaluate how accurately Paul knew the legal terminology of his time and to what extent he drew on the standard legal jargon or digressed from it. This becomes clear through; examination of his use of familiar words in such an arrangement as afforded nuances in the meaning, his introduction of novel combinations of concepts as well as his use of nontechnical language and ideas from pagan and Jewish literature. In this way the degree in which his phraseology and ideas reflected the actual legal practice of his time will be evidenced. How many of the legal terms of the first letter to the Corinthians are borrowed from court language and characterized real judicial procedures or institutions will also be shown. Examined parallel to this is which, and how many, legal terms were used metaphorically and served to communicate to the members of the Corinthian religious community, and Christians in general, the essential subject matter of the new faith and important standards for the early Christian everyday life by way of the familiar illustration of legal practice. In conclusion, the findings of the study on the Pauline use of legal terms will be evaluated for better understanding of the apostle‘s rhetoric.

This book is especially interesting for the following fields: Theology and New Testament Exegetics, Classical Philology, Ancient History, Papyrology, History of Law, Linguistics and Lexicography.

Tyche Supplementband 6: Nikos Litinas, Greek Ostraca from Chersonesos, Crete. Ostraca Cretica Chersonesi (O.Cret.Chers.)


Tyche Supplementband 6: Nikos Litinas, Greek Ostraca from Chersonesos, Crete. Ostraca Cretica Chersonesi (O.Cret.Chers.), Wien 2009
Holzhausen Verlag

Contents

The Greek ostraca from Chersonesos in Crete are the first example of an archive written with ink that comes from today’s Greek territory. During a rescue excavation in 1995 in the modern village of Chersonesos in a test trench in the ancient theater area 92 written and 38 non-written pieces of Roman time were found. The function of this archive is not totally clear. In an agricultural environment the ostraca could be the draft notes of a phrontistes of an estate, and in a commercial (and urban) environment the notes of a wholesale merchant. This unique collection contributes to the broader issues of the minuscule writing style outside Egypt, onomastics, the management of private, informal archives, Roman currency in Crete, the monetization of the Cretan economy, and to the specific agricultural and commercial contexts of the archive and the personnel involved.


Die griechischen Ostraka von Chersonesos in Kreta sind das erste Beispiel eines in Tinte geschrieben Archives, das auf dem Territorium des modernen griechischen Staates gefunden worden ist. 1995 wurden während einer Notgrabung in Chersonesos in einem Suchschnitt im antiken Theater 92 beschriftete und 38 unbeschriebene Scherben aus römischer Zeit gefunden. Die Funktion dieses Archives ist nicht ganz klar. Vor einem landwirtschaftlichen Hintergrund könnten die Ostraka Entwürfe von Notizen eines Verwalters eines Landgutes sein, vor einem gewerblichen (und städtischen) Hintergrund die Vermerke eines Großhändlers. Diese einzigartige Sammlung trägt zur Erweiterung unseres Wissens nicht nur über die Minuskelschrift außerhalb Ägyptens bei sondern auch über die Onomastik, die Verwaltung von privaten Archiven, die Monetarisierung der kretischen Wirtschaft sowie den gewerblichen als auch landwirtschaftlichen Kontext des Archives und des damit beschäftigte Personals.

Digital Classicist/ICS Work in Progress Seminar

Onomastics and Name-extraction in Graeco-Egyptian Papyri


Bart Van Beek (Leuven)



Digital Classicist/ICS Work in Progress Seminar, Summer 2009

Friday 5th June at 16:30, in room STB3/6, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

Several Leuven based research projects (see below) are currently studying the onomastics and prosopography of the ‘later’ periods of Egyptian history on the basis of the Greek, Latin, Egyptian and other texts collected in the interdisciplinary platform Trismegistos (www.trismegistos.org). All anthroponyms and toponyms mentioned in the texts are collected. Where no electronic full text corpus is available, data entry is manual, but for Greek papyrology the XML-encoded full-text corpus of the Duke Database of Documentary Papyri (DDBDP) has been put at our disposal. In a first stage, which has almost been completed, we have used the corpus to enlarge the list of personal names which we already had as part of the Prosopographia Ptolemaica. The fact that the DDBDP was in Unicode and had capitalized all proper names was of great help for the process of name extraction. We currently have a corpus of 25723 Greek nominative name variants, which are grouped into 16571 names. The link with Duke will be made on the basis of a database of 207070 declined forms of these name variants. The recognized forms will be stored in a relational database of name references, which will in its turn be the basis for a prosopography; the latter involves identifying different occurrences of a name when they relate to a single person. Information relevant for our research will be incorporated automatically through the link with the Trismegistos text database or added manually in the case of data about name typology and history or about the functions of people. A similar process is also underway for the placenames found in Trismegistos texts.

Our collaboration with the DDBDP has already been a great help to enlarge our database of names, and will be essential for the databases with references and prosopographically identified people. The Leuven project may in the future also be of use to the DDBDP corpus as well. Our added metadata could be re-entered in the full-text corpus as xml-tags, which will enhance the possibilities and efficiency of full-text searches. Names that may be either place names of personal names, e.g., can be distinguished easily; or one could do a search for all people with a certain name ‘x’ with a father named ‘y’ and profession ‘z’.

EpiDoc Training Sessions 2009

EpiDoc Training Sessions 2009
London 20-24 July
Rome 21-25 September

The EpiDoc community has been developing protocols for the publication
of papyri, inscriptions, and other documentary Classical texts in
TEI-compliant XML: for details see the community website at
http://epidoc.sf.net. (*Note:* the new Duke Databank of Documentary
Papyri is encoded in EpiDoc XML.)

Over the last few years there has been increasing demand for training by
scholars wishing to use EpiDoc. We are delighted to be able to announce
two training workshops, which will be offered in 2009. Both will be led
by Dr Gabriel Bodard. These sessions will benefit scholars working on
Greek or Latin documents with an interest in developing skills in the
markup, encoding, and exploitation of digital editions. Competence in
Greek and/or Latin, and knowledge of the Leiden Conventions will be
assumed; no particular computer skills are required.

*London session,* 20-24 July 2009. This will take place at the Centre
for Computing in the Humanities, King’s College London,
26-29 Drury
Lane. The cost of tuition will be £50 for students; £100 for employees
of universities or other non-profit institutions; £200 for employees of
commercial institutions. Those interested in enrolling should apply to
Dr Bodard, gabriel.bodard@kcl.ac.uk by 20 June 2009.

We hope to be able to offer some follow-up internships after the
session, to enable participants to consolidate their experience under
supervision; please let us know if that would be of interest to you.

*Rome session,* 21-25 September 2009. This will take place at the
British School at Rome. Thanks to the generous support of the
International Association of Greek and Latin Epigraphy, the British
School and Terra Italia Onlus, tuition will be free.

Those interested in enrolling should apply to Dr Silvia Orlandi,
silvia.orlandi@uniroma1.it by 30 June 2009.

*Practical matters*
Both courses will run from Monday to Friday starting at 10:00 am and
ending at 16:00 each day.

Participants should bring a wireless-enabled laptop. You should acquire
and install a copy of the Oxygen XML Editor
*and* either an educational licence ($48) or a 30-day trial licence (free). Don’t
worry if you don’t know how to use it!

REVIEW: A. HARKER, Loyalty and Dissidence in Roman Egypt


Andrew Harker: Loyalty and Dissidence in Roman Egypt

by Livia Capponi

In 1954 the Church historian Herbert Musurillo re-edited a collection of all known Acta Alexandrinorum (or Acts of the Alexandrian Martyrs), and since then there has long been a need for a new study taking into consideration the newly published fragments of this fascinating literature. Andrew Harker's book must thus be welcomed as an entirely appropriate and timely work that fills a major gap in scholarship. The author must be congratulated on that.

Etc. at Sehepunkte

Lectures: New Greek Texts from Oxyrhynchus


BRITISH ACADEMY PRESENTATION EVENING
New Greek Texts from Oxyrhynchus

Wednesday 24 June 2009, 7.00 pm - 8.30 pm
The British Academy, 10 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH
Tickets: No tickets will be issued for this event - please see below*
Convenors: Professor Eric Handley, University of Cambridge, and Dr Dirk Obbink, University of Oxford
Speakers: Dr Dirk Obbink, Professor Peter Parsons, University of Oxford, and Dr Dorothy Thompson, University of
Cambridge
Just over a hundred years ago, on a site some 100 miles south of Cairo, two Oxford scholars, on behalf of the Egypt
Exploration Fund, excavated some 50,000 pieces of ancient books and documents that had been discarded in the city
dump, and had survived the centuries in the dry climate.
The excavators were Bernard Grenfell and Arthur Hunt. They devoted successive seasons to their task between 1897
and 1907, and gave more years still to publishing some of their significant discoveries. The site in question is modern
Bahnasa, ancient Oxyrhynchus or ’The City of the Sharp-nosed Fish’, as Peter Parsons calls it in the title of a much-
admired book that appeared in 2007. More than seventy volumes of The Oxyrhynchus Papyri have so far been published.
They include texts of Greek literature otherwise lost to the modern world, together with fragments of Christian gospels,
technical treatises, tax returns, petitions to the authorities, private letters, wills and a host of other documents that give
a unique insight into the life of the city and the Graeco-Roman civilization of which it was part.
The presentation evening offers an opportunity to consider such questions as did Euripides write two versions of his
play Medea? How do modern methods of image-making work to recover an unknown classical text? How much can a
personal letter reveal of the world about the writer? There will also be an opportunity to hear something of the present
state and future prospects of the Oxyrhynchus Project as a whole. A compact display of papyri, photographs, and other
relevant material will also be on view.
* Please note the registration and seating policy:
1. This event is organised by the British Academy but EES members are warmly invited to attend. The event is free of
charge, there is no advance registration for this event and no tickets will be issued.
2. The rooms for the event will be open from 6.30pm onwards - please do not arrive at the Academy before this time.
3. The first 100 audience members arriving at the Academy will be offered a seat in the Lecture Room where this event
will take place. The next 50 people to arrive will be offered a seat in the Overflow Room which has a video and audio
link to the Lecture Room.

Comments and Suggestions

Introduction

The Oriental Institute Museum houses a large collection of nearly 900 Demotic ostraca, pottery sherds upon which ancient scribes recorded a wide variety of text types. The vast majority of the corpus concerns economic matters and consists of receipts, contracts, memos, and lists, but there is a small selection of other genres such as votive and astrological texts. With few exceptions, the material derives from the environs of Thebes and over half of the collection derives from the Oriental Institute excavations at Medinet Habu. Attested dates in the documents range from the early Ptolemaic Period (circa 285 B.C.E.) to the early Roman Period (circa 80 C.E.). Less than one third of the corpus has been published:

160 ostraca in Miriam Lichtheim, Demotic Ostraca from Medinet Habu, Oriental Institute Publications 80 (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1957)
61 ostraca in Brian P. Muhs, Tax Receipts, Taxpayers, and Taxes in Early Ptolemaic Thebes, Oriental Institute Publications 126 (Chicago: The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, 2005), available online here
Several dozen ostraca have been published in the articles of Ursula Kaplony-Heckel and Otto Neugebauer.
The O.I.D.O.O database was developed as both a scholarly research tool and a means for the publication of the unpublished Oriental Institute Demotic ostraca. It is our aim to make available all of the Demotic ostraca in this collection, both published and unpublished, to scholars worldwide in a format that will allow for complex searching and sorting criteria as well as quick and easy updating. This will be accomplished through periodic updates as additional texts are edited and entered into the database.

Demotic Ostraca from Medinet Habu

By Miriam Lichtheim


The Demotic ostraca presented in this volume come from the Oriental Institute's 1929/30 season of excavation at Medinet Habu, the season that yielded the Coptic ostraca previously published in this series. As in the case of the Coptic ostraca, the present publication consists of a selection of the most significant pieces. Those excluded are for the most part broken or otherwise damaged, or they are virtual duplicates such as tax receipts of the most common kinds. This is not to say that study of the excluded pieces would not yield worthwhile results.

P.Cairo 10759
Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents: Photographic Archive of Papyri in the Cairo Museum

"Introduction

In the 1970s and 1980s an International Photographic Mission initiated and sponsored by the Association Internationale de Papyrologues and UNESCO made slides and photographs of the several thousand published Greek papyri held in the Cairo Museum. The International Photographic Archive of Papyri (IPAP) consists of about 6000 slides and large format negatives, in equal proportions, held at Oxford, Brussels, Cologne, Heidelberg and Copenhagen.

As part of its Script, Image and the Culture of Writing in the Ancient World programme funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation the Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents has undertaken a programme of cataloguing and digitising the photographs in the Archive with a view to making them more readily available to the scholarly community.

Digitised images of the majority of the photographs in Archive are now available from this site, organised according to published collections. The digitised images are drawn partly from the 4x5 inch and 6x9 cm black and white negatives taken by Adam Bülow-Jacobsen, partly from the 35mm colour slides and black and white negatives held in the Papyrology Room in Oxford. We are particularly grateful to Dr. Bülow-Jacobsen for making available the beautiful large format photographs which he took for the IPAP mission."

Codex P.Cairo 10759, found at Akhmim (Panopolis) in Upper Egypt and dating from the 6th-9th. centuries, contains manuscript copies of both the Gospel of Peter and chapters 1-27 of 1 Enoch:
