    The Invention of Sin

    The Greek word for a fault or error is hamartia; this same word, when it appears in Greek translations of the Hebrew Bible and in the New Testament, is commonly rendered as “sin.”  If there were no word like sin or péché or Sünde or peccato in modern languages, with the religious connotation these terms have acquired, could we identify a special sense of hamartia (or the Latin peccatum) in the Bible on the basis of context alone?  This colloquium will address the question of when and how error and wrongdoing acquired the specific sense of sin commonly associated with the Judaeo-Christian tradition – if indeed there was a change.  Under examination will be attitudes toward wrongdoing in ancient cults, ideas of pollution, conceptions of God or gods, and more.

    Reading History in Antiquity

    Audience-oriented perspectives on Classical Historiography

    Although the outcomes of reader-response criticism have repeatedly and meticulously been used in the analysis of other genres of classical literature (epic, tragedy, and oratory), the application of such a perspective still remains a significant desideratum in the field of classical historiography. The conference “Reading History in Antiquity: Audience-Oriented Perspectives on Classical Historiography” aspires to fill this gap.

    Relations climat-sociétés en Méditerranée pendant les deux derniers millénaires

    État des connaissances et perspectives de recherche

    L’objectif de cette conférence de deux jours est de mettre en avant des travaux interdisciplinaires récents et innovants sur les relations historiques complexes entre climat et société(s) en Méditerranée au cours des deux derniers millénaires. En effet, si les questions relatives aux conséquences futures du changement climatique pour les sociétés méditerranéennes sont nombreuses et variées, l’analyse de l’impact des fluctuations hydro-météorologiques passées (e.g. épisodes de sécheresse) sur la dynamique et la vie des populations urbaines et rurales, à différentes époques, peut permettre de mieux saisir le rôle de l’environnement dans l’apparition de conflits locaux ou régionaux, le déclenchement d’épidémies, l’apparition de disettes ou de famines, de migrations. Elle peut aussi permettre de faire ressortir les réponses et adaptations sociales, politiques ou technologiques mises en œuvre.

    Semantic Web for Scientific Heritage

    SW4SH 2016: Second International Workshop

    Classicists and historians are interested in developing textual databases, in order to gather and explore large amounts of primary source materials. For a long time, they mainly focused on text digitization and markup. They only recently decided to try to explore the possibility of transferring some analytical processes they previously thought incompatible with automation to knowledge engineering systems, thus taking advantage of the growing set of tools and techniques based on the languages and standards of the semantic Web, such as linked data, ontologies, and automated reasoning. SW4SH 2016 aims to provide a leading international and interdisciplinary forum for disseminating the latest research in the field of Semantic Web for the preservation and exploitation of our scientific heritage, the study of the history of ideas and their transmission.

    Encoding Data for Digital Collaboration (ASOR 2016)

    Data encoding entails an analog-to-digital conversion in which the characteristics of an object, text, or archaeological site can be represented in a specialized format for computer handling. Once encoded, data can be stored, sorted, and analyzed through a variety of computer-based techniques ranging from specialized data-mining algorithms to user-friendly mobile apps. Especially when encoded data is open-source, researchers around the world can collaborate on the collection, encoding, and analysis of data.

    Musiques des origines

    Narrations du passé, performances et reconstitutions musicales (XXe-XXIe siècles)

    Chercher à reconstruire les musiques du passé et leur histoire est une préoccupation ancienne. Depuis le XIXe siècle, l’imaginaire orientaliste a considérablement alimenté l’idée de l’existence de musiques « originelles ». Qu’il s’agisse de musiques « pharaonique », « arabe » ou « hindoue », une même référence au passé, vu comme prestigieux et immuable, a contribué à rationaliser les savoirs musicaux sur la base de filiations construites. Si la période orientaliste est relativement bien documentée, le présent workshop s’attache plus spécifiquement aux manières de dire et de raconter le passé au cours du XXe jusqu’au début du XXIe siècle.

    Saints Abroad

    The Hungarian Historical Review

    Hagiography and the material cult of the saints inform today a wide variety of historical research from philology and theology through historical anthropology and cultural history to narratology and art history. Approaches vary from the local and national (dynastic saints, state religion, patron saints of cities and countries) to the universal (saints as healers, helpers and intercessors). We invite papers to this special issue on saints related to Pannonia and Hungary who crossed the frontiers and either “worked abroad”, or their relics, cults, texts and images scattered all over Europe.

    Two PhD positions in the Emmy-Noether junior research group on "power and influence: influencing emperors between Antiquity and the Middle Ages"

    Since rulers of the Imperial Roman Period and the Early Middle Ages occupied the highest (secular) position, individuals who exerted influence on them enjoyed a great extent of power. As a consequence, there was bitter rivalry between the various agents and much thinking about legitimate and illegitimate influence. These exercises and concepts of personal influence are the topic of a new Emmy-Noether junior research group, which is offering two PhD positions.

    Feeding animals/Eating animals. Theories, Attitudes and Cultural Representations of Nutrition in Ancient and Medieval World

    Memoria scientiae 2015

    According to ancient biological theories, nutrition is, along with reproduction, one of the functions of the soul shared by men, animals and plants. At the same time, however, eating habits are among the starting points on which differences between humans, animals and plants are culturally built. This means that a transversal biological praxis can be used as an anthropological device, in order to to fix and identify specific boundaries and thresholds, either symbolic or theoretical, between both animality and vegetality on the one hand, and zoosphere and  anthroposphere on the other hand.

    From the Caucasus to the Arabian Peninsula: studying domestic spaces in the Neolithic

    Under neolithisation scholars understand multiple processes of social and economic transformation which begin at different times and follow regional trends in the Near and Middle East. It is within the complex relational and spatial framework of the household that these shifts in the structure and activities of Neolithic communities are easiest to apprehend and study. The conference will therefore focus on the domestic sphere in order to highlight and understand the polymorphous nature of what we call neolithisation. Various thematic sessions will be held to shed new light on current data: “Impacts of the shift to a sedentary/semi-sedentary lifestyle”; “Organising the house and the household”; “Private space/public space”; “Acquisition, production, transformation and use”; “Eating-Moving”; “Symbolic manifestations”;“The living and the dead”.

    The Notion of Intelligence in Ancient Greece (nous-noein), from Homer to Platonism

    Vol. 16 Methodos (2016)

    The aim of this issue of Methodos is to gather contributions of international scholars on the notion of nous-noein in order to reconstruct the history of the terms related to intelligence and its activities. The issue will mainly try to outline the evolution of such terms, from their original perceptual meaning to their conceptual and theoretical scope. Contributions should thus provide materials and analysis to identify the stages and ruptures in the evolution of their use. Additionally, all attempts to trace the technical and cultural transformations which have allowed the passage from the practical understanding of the nous-noein to its more abstract uses are welcome. Papers should by no means be limited to genetic or historical reconstructions; we also welcome any paper bringing some new elements of reflection on the notion of intelligence in the chosen era.

    The Wisdom of the Ancients. Jerusalem rediscovers Athens

    The German-Jewish Revaluation of Ancient Philosophy

    Between 1920 and 1930, a group of young, brilliant Jewish researchers studied in Germany under the direction of Cassirer, Husserl and Heidegger. Leo Strauss, Karl Löwith, Hans Jonas, Hannah Arendt, Jacob Klein, Eric Weil, Günther Anders, and others were forced by the advent of Nazism to escape from Germany and to wander around the world. All these thinkers strove to question the historicist assumption, according to which Modernity is to be seen as progress in respect to the Ancient thought. In their studies, they found new ways to listen to the voice of the Ancients, by revaluating them in the context of the crisis of modern thought. Starting from Athens and Jerusalem, the symbolic roots of western culture, these philosophers problematized and revitalized the quarrel between Ancients and Moderns over again.

    Recherches géoarchéaologiques en Mer Noire et en Mer d’Azov

    Depuis les premières études engagées en 1783 par Gablitz sur la chôra de Chersonèse, la Mer Noire constitue une zone de référence dans les recherches conduites sur l’aménagement des espaces ruraux et littoraux au sein du monde colonial grec. Le relevé systématique des nombreux fossés et murets qui parcourent le littoral occidental de la Crimée, initié dans le cadre du projet grec de Catherine II, a précédé de quelques décennies l’ouverture des premières fouilles en 1832 sur les espaces urbains. Une nouvelle étape, décisive, a été franchie dans les années 1960 par la mise en application d’une archéologie du sol, laquelle a offert un éclairage inédit sur l’organisation interne de plusieurs kleroi proches de Chersonèse, Kerkinitis et Kalos Limen. Au même moment débutaient dans l’Ouest de la mer Noire les premières recherches sur le territoire d’Istros, bientôt enrichies par l’apport de nombreuses études géomorphologiques sur les métamorphoses du delta voisin du Danube. Les bases fertiles d’une enquête géoarchéologique étaient jetées, laquelle n’a cessé depuis de s’enrichir grâce aux travaux menés ces dernières années tout autour de la zone pontique.
