Arabic and Latin Glossary

Arabic and Latin Glossary
edited by Dag Nikolaus Hasse
with the assistance of Barbara Jockers, Katrin Fischer, Reinhard Kiesler & Jens Ole Schmitt
The Arabic and Latin Glossary is a dictionary of the vocabulary of the Arabic–Latin translations of the Middle Ages. It unites the entries of all existing Arabic–Latin glossaries in modern editions of medieval works.
The Glossary has a double aim: to improve our understanding of the Arabic influence in Europe, especially with respect to scientific vocabulary, and to provide a lexical tool for the understanding of Arabic and Latin scientific texts.
It is currently based on 42 sources, which cover medicine, philosophy, theology, astrology, astronomy, mathematics, optics, botany, and zoology. The texts were written by the following Arabic or Greek authors:

  • Abū Maʿšar (Albumasar)
  • Abū l-Ṣalt (Albuzale)
  • Aristotle
  • al-Biṭrūǧī (Alpetragius)
  • al-Fārābī (Alfarabius)
  • Ibn al-Ǧazzār
  • Ibn al-Hayṯam (Alhazen)
  • Ibn Rušd (Averroes)
  • Abū Muḥammad ʿAbdallāh Ibn Rušd (Averroes Iunior)
  • Ibn Sīnā (Avicenna)
  • Ibn Tūmart
  • al-Kindī (Alkindi)
  • Yūḥannā ibn Māsawayh (Mesue)
  • al-Nayrīzī (Anaritius)
  • Nicolaus Damascenus
  • Proclus
  • Ptolemy
  • al-Qabīṣī (Alcabitius)
  • Ibn Zakariyyāʾ al-Rāzī (Rhazes)
  • Ṯābit ibn Qurra (Thebit ben Corat)
The Glossary is growing constantly. At the moment, it contains parts of the letter A (a–alh; appro–assig), the entire letter B (bab–buz) and the entire letter C (cac–cyp).

Studies in Late Antiquity
Studies in Late Antiquity: A Journal (SLA) is a new online quarterly journal published by the University of California Press. The journal is scheduled to launch in February 2017.

SLA aims to publish scholarship on a wide range of topics pertaining to the world of Late Antiquity (150 – 750 CE). A defining focus of the journal is fostering multi- and interdisciplinary research that emphasizes the interconnectedness of the Mediterranean with other parts of the late ancient world. Comparative and methodologically innovative papers are especially welcome.

Digital Silk Road

Digital Silk Road: Digital Archives of Cultural Heritage, Digital Silk Road Project, National Institute of Informatics
We wish to archive now the huge amount of cultural resources that have been collected and studied from the ancient to the current in a form without deterioration, and inherit those resources for the future. We wish to improve accessibility to those cultural resources for many people to actually see and use those resources. 

Digital Silk Road Project is a research project to realize these goals by integrating information technology with the study of culture. To be specific, we must investigate various methods, starting from the digitization of real cultural artifacts, and the construction of digital archives, to the exhibition of digital cultural resources over the network and annotation to digital cultural resources based on collaborative work. 

Naturally, this kind of a big issue cannot be solved only by the experts of informatics. That is why we are promoting international collaborative research ranging over various academic fields. We have been working together with several international organizations and several universities in Japan and in foreign countries. 

Our future plan includes the dissemination of research results over the network to broaden the outreach of the digital archive. We also understand, however, that another important issue is the improvement of accessibility to digital cultural resources, especially in countries along ancient Silk Road in which the usage of information technology still remains premature.

eDiAna: Digital Philological-Etymological Dictionary of the Minor Ancient Anatolian Corpus Languages

eDiAna: Digital Philological-Etymological Dictionary of the Minor Ancient Anatolian Corpus Languages
The aim of the Digital Philological/Etymological Dictionary of the Minor Language Corpora of Ancient Anatolia is to provide the first exhaustive lexical assessment of the entire corpus of the lesser attested ancient Anatolian languages, i.e. Hieroglyphic and Cuneiform Luwian, Lycian, Carian, Lydian, Palaic, Sidetic and Milyan (Lycian B). This includes the philological documentation of word usage with regard to semantics, grammar and context as well as cultural background and the historical linguistic interrelationships of the minor languages with Hittite and the other Indo-European languages, whereby the methodology of comparative historical linguistics plays an important role. The Digital Philological/Etymological Dictionary of the Minor Language Corpora of Ancient Anatolia is intended to serve as a fundamental resource for Hittitology and for Ancient Anatolian and Ancient Near Eastern Studies as well as for Indo-Europeanists. It will be published online (with multiple search options), printed (print-on-demand) and thus made accessible to a wide public including scholars of many different disciplines and other interested parties.
