Romola by George Eliot


One of George Eliot's most ambitious and imaginative novels, Romola is set in Renaissance Florence during the turbulent years following the expulsion of the powerful Medici family during which the zealous religious reformer Savonarola rose to controlMore One of George Eliot's most ambitious and imaginative novels, Romola is set in Renaissance Florence during the turbulent years following the expulsion of the powerful Medici family during which the zealous religious reformer Savonarola rose to control the city. At its heart is Romola, the devoted daughter of a blind scholar, married to the clever but ultimately treacherous Tito whose duplicity in both love and politics threatens to destroy everything she values, and she must break away to find her own path in life. Described by Eliot as 'written with my best blood', the story of Romola's intellectual and spiritual awakening is a compelling portrayal of a Utopian heroine, played out against a turbulent historical backdrop.

If you’re looking to read your first George Eliot, don’t start with Romola. In 1866, Henry James called it Eliot’s greatest novel to date (and that means greater than The Mill on the Floss. which opinion is goofy). “It is decidedly the most important,” he wrote of the nov. Read full review

It's true, as other reviewers have noted, that at times Romola is a slog. (Is there a nineteenth-century novel that isn't?) Nonetheless, what really astounded me about this novel is Eliot's ambition for it. Not for her the advice Jane Austen gave her would-be novelist nie. Read full review

AWOL - The Ancient World Online: January 2015

[First posted in AWOL 12 August 2010, updated 31 January 2015]

Oriental Institute Demotic Ostraca Online (O.I.D.O.O.)

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)
  • 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.

The focus of the ANEM/MACO series is on the ancient Near East broadly construed from the early Neolithic to the Hellenistic eras. Studies that are heavily philological or archaeological are both suited to this series and can take full advantage of the hypertext capabilities of "born digital" publication. Monographs as well as multiple author and edited volumes are accepted. Proposals and manuscripts may be submitted in either English or Spanish. Manuscript proposals are peer reviewed by at least two scholars in the relevant area before acceptance. Publication of the finished manuscript is contingent on a second round of peer review.

Monographs that are entirely Assyriological, Hittitological, or Egyptological are as appropriate to this series as are monographs in North West Semitics or Biblical Studies.

Given the open-access availability of published monographs (in PDF), publishing your work in this series guarantees its availability to scholars around the world, even to those with minimal economic resources.

Requirements for a proposal are available here .

For published volumes in the series and the full editorial board, see here .

I look forward to hearing from interested scholars.

AROURA Reports
Archaeological Reconnaissance of Uninvestigated Remains of Agriculture (AROURA) is an archaeological geophysics and surface survey of the plain around the 13th century BCE fortress of Glas, Boiotia, central mainland Greece, beginning in October 2010 and lasting until November 2012. It aims to detail the Mycenaean hydraulic, drainage, and land-improvement works around the fortress, and to search for traces of the expected extensive agricultural system they served. AROURA is an official collaboration between the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), and the 9th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities (IX EPCA) of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports, based in Thebes, Dr. M.F. Lane (UMBC) and Dr. A. Charami (IX EPCA) co-directors.

AROURA 2010 Preliminary Report Note:Upon further analysis, the band of silty soil mentioned on p. 21 is now thought to represent an area of land more often above water than the surrounding territory, after the reflooding of the Mycenaean polder (August 2011).

Les États généraux de l'Antiquité. quels enjeux pour demain?

Nos deux associations, qui placent l’Antiquité au cœur de leurs activités, l’APLAES (Association des Professeurs de Langues Anciennes de l'Enseignement Supérieur) et la SOPHAU (Société des Professeurs d’Histoire Ancienne de l’Université), ont décidé d'organiser un événement médiatique sur la place de l’Antiquité dans notre société. Les États généraux de l’Antiquité. quels enjeux pour demain ? Pourquoi des États généraux de l'Antiquité. Pour poser la question de la place de l’Antiquité en France et en Europe dans ces trois domaines. culture, formation, recherche, et pour qu’en apparaissent clairement les enjeux.

« Nous autres civilisations, nous savons maintenant que nous sommes mortelles. »

En 1924, au lendemain du premier conflit mondial, Paul Valéry se demandait déjà si l’Europe allait conserver sa prééminence mondiale dans tous les domaines ou si elle n’occuperait pas plutôt la place que la géographie lui assigne. « un petit cap du continent asiatique ». Revenant à l’Antiquité, il considérait « comme européens tous les peuples qui ont subi au cours de l’histoire les trois influences » que sont Rome, le christianisme et la Grèce[1].

Aujourd’hui, en 2015, nous savons que le temps tisse les civilisations dans un perpétuel mouvement et qu’elles se nourrissent les unes des autres. Ce mouvement de renouveau existe dans la mesure où le présent et l’avenir se nourrissent du passé. C’est pourquoi l’Antiquité proche-orientale, grecque et romaine est non seulement aux origines mais aussi au cœur de notre civilisation européenne, comme un terreau fertile, ce que nous voulons affirmer haut et fort dans une expression commune des historiens, des linguistes, des archéologues, des juristes et des spécialistes de la pensée et des littératures anciennes.

Ces enjeux seront débattus au cours de trois tables rondes. sur l'Antiquité et l'éducation, sur l'Antiquité et la culture européenne au XXIe siècle et sur l'Antiquité et la recherche. L’Antiquité est malmenée dans les programmes scolaires et la formation des citoyens, menacée dans la recherche. Et pourtant, les références aux modèles antiques irriguent la littérature, la philosophie et l'art occidental, jusqu'aux arts plus récents que sont le cinéma, la télévision, ou la bande dessinée. Elles sont omniprésentes sur internet, dans les jeux, dans la publicité et irriguent notre imaginaire. L’Antiquité reste à la page dans des formes d’expressions nouvelles. En effet, « Avoir été c’est une condition pour être… » (Fernand Braudel[2])

John Gordon Lorimer’s Gazetteer of the Persian Gulf, Oman and Central Arabia (1908 and 1915)

John Gordon Lorimer’s monumental Gazetteer of the Persian Gulf, Oman and Central Arabia – often simply referred to as ‘Lorimer’ by many researchers - has been digitised and is now accessible for free through the Qatar Digital Library.

The Gazetteer ’s first volume, the historical section, is divided into three parts:

  • Part I (IOR/L/PS/20/C91/1 ), the ‘Arabian portion’, covers the general history of the Persian Gulf, with histories of the Arab littoral, Central Arabia, Oman and Turkish Arabia (Iraq);
  • Part II (IOR/L/PS/20/C91/2 ), ‘the Persian section’, covers the history of the Persian littoral, including Arabistan and Makran. In addition, nineteen appendices cover subjects from pearl fisheries to the slave trade. Of note is Appendix P. ‘Cruise of His Excellency Lord Curzon, Viceroy and Governor-General of India’, an official account of the 1903 vice regal tour of Persian Gulf ports;
  • Part III (IOR/L/PS/20/C91/3 ) consists of twenty-one genealogical tables for the ruling families of the Persian Gulf, Oman and Central Arabia.

The Gazetteer ’s second volume (IOR/L/PS/20/C91/4 ) is the ‘Geographical and Statistical’ section and includes alphabetical entries for tribes, towns and regions, from ‘Abdalilah to Zubārah. It also contains fifty-six reproductions of photographs taken by British colonial officers, but also German explorer, Hermann Burchardt, and Raja Deen Dayal and Sons, official photographers to the Viceroy of India.

The Gazetteer includes two maps: a chart of pearl banks on the Arabian littoral of the Persian Gulf included with the genealogical tables; and a large ‘Map of the Persian Gulf, ’Omān and Central Arabia’ (IOR/L/PS/20/C91/6 ) produced by Lieutenant Frederick Fraser Hunter in consultation with Lorimer. And see also Colonial Knowledge: Lorimer’s Gazetteer of the Persian Gulf, Oman and Central Arabia . in the Untold Lives blog from the British Library.

Peitho: Exa­mina Anti­qua
ISSN: 2082-7539
PEITHO / Exa­mina Anti­qua is an inter­na­tio­nal jour­nal devo­ted to the inve­sti­ga­tion of ancient Greek, Roman and Byzan­tine tho­ught. Foun­ded in May 2010, the jour­nal is edi­ted by the Insti­tute of Phi­lo­so­phy at Adam Mic­kiewcz Uni­ver­sity in Poland.

PEITHO publi­shes rese­arch papers and short notes in the fields of phi­lo­so­phy, lite­ra­ture, history and lan­gu­age. The lan­gu­ages of publi­ca­tion are English, French, Ger­man, Ita­lian, Latin and Polish.

The deci­sion to esta­blish an inter­na­tio­nal scho­larly jour­nal for the study of ancient tho­ught and its recep­tion has been promp­ted by the desire to esta­blish a com­mon gro­und for a fru­it­ful exchange of views between various Hel­le­ni­sts and to sti­mu­late the debate on the ancient roots of our continent.

Evi­den­tly, Greek phi­lo­so­phy is one of the stron­gest foun­da­tions of Euro­pean cul­tu­ral iden­tity. Con­se­qu­en­tly, the jour­nal aims to show this immense intel­lec­tual heri­tage. While PEITHO focu­ses on reve­aling the ancient sour­ces of ideas that are fun­da­men­tal to modern Europe, the credo of the jour­nal is that without under­stan­ding the ori­gins of these ideas it is vir­tu­ally impos­si­ble to under­stand our con­ti­nent in its pre­sent shape.

AWOL is a project of Charles E. Jones. Tombros Librarian for Classics and Humanities at the Pattee Library, Penn State University

AWOL began with a series of entries under the heading AWOL on the Ancient World Bloggers Group Blog. I moved it to its own space here beginning in 2009.

The primary focus of the project is notice and comment on open access material relating to the ancient world, but I will also include other kinds of networked information as it comes available.

The ancient world is conceived here as it is at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at New York University, my academic home at the time AWOL was launched. That is, from the Pillars of Hercules to the Pacific, from the beginnings of human habitation to the late antique / early Islamic period.

AWOL is the successor to Abzu. a guide to networked open access data relevant to the study and public presentation of the Ancient Near East and the Ancient Mediterranean world, founded at the Oriental Institute, University of Chicago in 1994. Together they represent the longest sustained effort to map the development of open digital scholarship in any discipline.

AWOL is syndicated to Facebook and Twitter.
