  • 6. WiP – Words in Progress

    The WiP – Words in Progress website is an online freely consultable database that represents an on-going supplement to the major currently used dictionaries of Ancient and Byzantine Greek and seeks to provide a scientific tool for scholars of Greek and more generally of the Ancient Greek and Latin world. Drawing its inspiration from the over ten years of experience of PAWAG – Poorly Attested Words in Ancient Greek, of which the materials form the basis for the new website, Words in Progress aims to expand its objectives by detailing corrections and additions of many different kinds, in order to record recent progress in the updating and enlargement of lexica of Ancient and Byzantine Greek. Its primary focus of activity concerns the recording of new words, but attention is also devoted to previously unknown sources, novel acceptations and improvements of all kinds involving the entries in the main existing dictionaries.

  • 9. Lexicon of Greek Personal Names (LGPN)

    The Lexicon of Greek Personal Names (LGPN) was established to collect and publish with documentation all known ancient Greek personal names (including non-Greek names recorded in Greek, and Greek names in Latin), drawn from all available sources (literature, inscriptions, graffiti, papyri, coins, vases and other artefacts), within the period from the earliest Greek written records (eighth century B.C.) through, approximately, the sixth century A.D. The work thus starts with the period of epichoric scripts, embraces the classical and hellenistic periods of Greek history, following dialect and the development of koine, and continues through the period of the Roman Empire when Greek nomenclature underwent changes as a result of Roman rule, and religious, social and other factors. Excluded names include mythological and heroic names, Mycenaean names, later Byzantine names and geographical names.

  • 10. Acta Sanctorum Database

    The Acta Sanctorum Database is an electronic version of the complete printed text of the Acta Sanctorum [Deeds of the Saints] taken from the edition published in many volumes by the Société des Bollandistes in Antwerp in the seventeenth century and continued in Brussels in the later nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It is a collection of documents recounting the exemplary lives, deaths, miracles, and other deeds of saints of the Roman Catholic Church as well as major historical moments in their subsequent veneration. Organized according to each saint's feast day, it runs from January through November. The final volume is the Propylaeum [preliminary volume] to December published in 1940. This is an annotated edition, rich in older bibliographical references, of the Martyrologium Romanum, the church's month-by-month listing of its saints. Lives, etc. of saints with feast days in December are not included in the Acta Sanctorum. Although some early modern saints are included, the Acta Sanctorum's coverage is chiefly ancient and medieval. The editorial matter and most of the documents are in Latin; some documents are in Greek. Every "Search" page and every document page has a vertically oriented toolbar at the upper left, headed by the words "Acta Sanctorum". Some important indexes for searching are over the picture and thus easily missed by new users. One of these is the database's "BHL GoTo" feature, which guides one to matter on particular saints according to the numbers and number ranges assigned in the Bibliotheca Hagiographica Latina (BHL; a standard inventory and finding guide for lives, etc. of the saints). The toolbar includes links to the Table of Contents, to the general contents of the database's Help file, to contextual Help varying on where one is in the database, and (document pages only) to a set of links, called "Context".
