Abstract

"Dionysos, with his following of satyrs and women, was a major theme in a big part of the figure painted pottery in 500-300 B.C. Athens. As an original testimonial of their time, the imagery on these vases convey what this god meant to his worshippers. It becomes clear that he was not only appropriate for wine, wine indulgence, ecstasy and theatre. Rather, he was presenton many, both happy and sad, occasions. The vase painters have emphasized different aspects of Dionysos for their customers inside and outside of Athens, depending on the political and cultural situation."

Abstract

This book examines the formation and development of the biographical traditions about early Greek poets, focusing on the traditions of Hesiod, Stesichorus, Archilochus, Hipponax, Terpander and Sappho. The study provides a detailed overview of the traditions and chronographical material about these poets and seeks to clarify who were the creators of the particular traditions; what were the sources; when the traditions were formed; and to what extent they are shaped by formulaic themes and story-patterns. It challenges several mainstream assumptions on the subject, for example, that the traditions were formed mainly in the Post-Classical period; that the only significant source for the legends is the works of the particular poet; and that the poets were perceived as “new heroes.”

Abstract

The textual tradition of the Bible has inspired many of the most significant
developments, principles and methodologies in editorial practice, from the
parallel texts and critical symbols of Origen’s Hexapla in the early third century
to Lachmann’s nineteeth-century stemmatics. It is therefore unsurprising that,
in this digital age, the New Testament continues to be at the forefront of new
and exciting initiatives. The present chapter describes the workflow and tools
developed for the Editio Critica Maior of the Greek New Testament, in particular
those associated with the Workspace for Collaborative Editing, and how
these have shaped the task of editing both the text and documents of the New
Testament and offer new models of publication thanks to the capacity of electronic
media and the Internet.
