EXHIBITION at the ÖNB: Das Phänomen Homer in Papyri, Handschriften und Drucken


Das Phänomen Homer
in Papyri, Handschriften und Drucken

Die Geschichte der Menschheit ist seit jeher auch eine der Mythen, Märchen, Fabeln und Religionen. Große Denker, Propheten und Wissenschafter befassten sich zu allen Zeiten mit den verschiedenen Erscheinungsformen der Welt; was sie nicht selbst gesehen und erfahren hatten, wurde durch fantastische Geschichten ergänzt. So entstanden Götterwelten, Heldensagen und Religionen, die Völker, Kulturen und Gesellschaften prägten und deren Entwicklung beeinflußten. Die bedeutendsten Geschichten wurden über Jahrtausende hinweg tradiert, schriftlich festgehalten oder mündlich von Generation zu Generation überliefert. In früheren Zeiten waren diese Quellen oft geheim oder der gesellschaftlichen Oberschicht vorbehalten, die durch den Wissensvorsprung ihre Position festigte. Die große Bedeutung uralter Texte und Weisheiten offenbart sich in der Geschichte ihrer Überlieferung: Wissen zu erhalten ist ein zentrales menschliches Bedürfnis, ebenso wie Erfahrungen an die Nachwelt weiterzugeben, um in deren Tradierung „Unsterblichkeit” zu erlangen. Diese Form der Unsterblichkeit hat der wohl berühmteste Dichter der Antike – Homer – erlangt, er lebt in seinen großartigen Epen weiter.

"First Scans of the Herculaneum Papyri"


Today represents an exciting step forward for the EDUCE project: the team acquired a preliminary CT-scan of PHerc Paris 4, a complete unopened scroll from Herculaneum. Earlier in the week, they mounted the scroll in a special container to support it during scanning inside the SkyScan 1173. With protection from this meticulously constructed custom mounting container, the scroll can stand on end while the scanner rotates it in a gentle pirouette. The team is poised to begin acquiring scans at the best resolution and with the best possible contrast, revealing the internal layers and giving hope to the goal of eventually “virtually unrolling” the layers to read the text.
