L’Année Philologique

PHI Digital Text Archives (Greek, Latin, & Persian)

The PHI Digital Text Archives provides free access to surviving Latin literature from the beginning to about AD 200. PHI has collected and transcribed many early English translations of Persian literature. Because of copyright restrictions, they have included only translations made before 1923. In addition to literary texts (such as Homer and Plato) that have survived in manuscript copies, the ancient Greeks carved many inscriptions on stone (and occasionally other surfaces). Inscriptions range from public laws and decrees to gravestones and even marks on pottery. These inscriptions provide unique evidence for ancient Greece, since they are true original documents, unlike literary manuscripts which have been copied many times over the centuries and therefore often contain errors. The scholarly discipline of epigraphy deals with reading these texts and identifying the dates and cultural contexts. Many inscriptions are in a damaged or fragmentary state, and epigraphy is a subject for highly trained specialists.

Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG)

The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG) is a research center at the University of California, Irvine.

Its goal is to create a comprehensive digital library of Greek literature from antiquity to the present era.

China Historical Christian Database (CHCD)

The China Historical Christian Database (CHCD) quantifies and visualizes the place of Christianity in modern China (1550-1950). It provides users the tools to discover where every Christian church, school, hospital, orphanage, publishing house, and the like were located in China, and it documents who worked inside those buildings, both foreign and Chinese. Collectively, this information creates spatial maps and generates relational networks that reveal where, when, and how Western ideas, technologies, and practices entered China. Simultaneously, it uncovers how and through whom Chinese ideas, technologies, and practices were conveyed to the West.

This project breaks new ground in providing quantifiable data about modern Sino-Western relations. Its intuitive interface generates visualizations, lists, and maps for use by the general public, students and teachers in secondary education and colleges, in the US and globally, with English and Chinese navigation. Advanced DH users have open access to its data for elaboration. BU’s digital infrastructure guarantees long-term sustainability, and CHCD’s international collaborations in the USA, Asia, and Europe help promote historical understanding between China and the rest of the world.
