Classics Links

 Blogs:

Dorothy King’s PhDiva : I blog for Dr. King on occasion, but it is exceptional on its own! Her blog is focused predominantly on the material culture of the ancient world–inscriptions, statues, frescoes, et cetera–and has a particular concentration on stolen antiquities.

The Rogue Classicist : The Rogue Classicist is where all classicists, ancient historians, and classical archaeologists start. Updates on finds, CFPs for conferences, and wonderful info all around.

Kate Cooper’s KateAntiquity : A splendid blog that often marries antiquity with social relevance, Kate Cooper often blogs on topics regarding Late Antiquity, angels, women, and the Church.

Bread and Circuses: Adrian Murdoch’s blog is extremely erudite and often focused on Late Antiquity.

Resources:

Geography:

Digital Atlas of the Roman Empire: Via the Pelagios Project, this gorgeous site allows you to search all the Pelagios places, and has a wonderful set of layers you can turn on and off to see bridges, temples, and other tagged sites in the database.

GeoDia: Run by Adam Rabinowitz at UT-Austin. This site is coming into its own by mixing aspects of the spatial with the temporal. Explore and enjoy.

Hestia Project: Via the Hestia website: “The Hestia project takes up Herodotus’s enquiry through the new medium of our time, digital technology, and involves a collaborative team of researchers from Classical Studies, Geography and Digital Humanities. Using a digital text of Herodotus’s Histories, from which we have extracted all place-names, we use web-mapping technologies such as GIS, Google Earth and Narrative TimeMap to investigate the cultural geography of the ancient world through the eyes of one of its first witnesses.”

Orbis: This site is not only a resource for geography, but also for trade, commerce, infrastructure, and travel in antiquity. Walter Scheidel and Elijah Meeks run this site from Stanford.

Pleiades: The gazette of the ancient world. Thousands of places to explore within the ancient Mediterranean, often coupled with bibliographic references to the Barrington Atlas, further reading, pictures, and–of course–maps!

Epigraphy:

The USEP: The US Epigraphy Project: Okay, once again, I favor this site because I contribute to it; however, it is a superb resource for finding inscriptions in museums all over the U.S. Soon it will also include Canada!

Eagle: The Electronic Archive of Greek and Latin Epigraphy. This is not only my favorite acronym in classics, it is also a superb epigraphy resource.

Epigraphische Datenbank Heidelberg: Stunning pictures and inscriptions from the CIL and other Latin epigraphic corpora (e.g., ILS). Also now includes bilingual inscriptions.

ASGLE Epigraphy Guide: Allow Tom Elliott to guide you through the labyrinth that is epigraphy with this helpful guide.

PHI: Packard Humanities Database. This is the place for all Greek inscriptions (e.g., IG, CIG, et cetera).

Greco-Roman Law:

Annotated Justinian Code: Oh, Wyoming. This is probably the reason I love you most.

Corpus Iuris Civilis: Resource exploring the wonderful legal gifts bestowed by Justinian: the Digest, the Codex Justinianus, the Novels, and the Institutes.

DRoits ANTiques: Wondrous database of all things legal in the Mediterranean.

Companion Site to Borkowski’s Textbook on Roman Law: A rich online (free) companion to the textbook, which includes an interactive timeline, a glossary, latin texts, biographies, and other links to Roman law.

Late Antiquity

Volumes of the CSEL: with translations, editions, and other links.

New Monographs in Late Antique and Early Medieval Studies: Keep up to date on the new books shaping the field of Late Antiquity.

Helpful Links for the Cult of the Saints (to 700 CE): Resources for the study of the Cult of the Saints in all parts of the Mediterranean via Oxford’s project on the phenomenon.

Other Compendia of Classics Links:

Vos at UCSB: The most extensive list of Classics resources that I have ever found. A veritable smörgåsbord, to be sure.
