Classical Archaeology and Art on the Web: the Beazley Archive

Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

The original project, a database of Athenian figure-decorated pottery 626-300BC, began in 1979. It was the second in the University of Oxford to be available 'on line' (after Cairns Science Library). From 1992 that database, and others begun from the early 1990s, began to be prepared for migration to the web. The project funded by the AHRB 2003/6 represented the first stage of an integrated multiple database system available on the web; more than 20 databases were programmed into XDB during 2004. Also during 2002/4 the digitisation of Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum for the web was undertaken.

Partonopeus de Blois: an Electronic Resource

Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

"Partonopeus de Blois" was one of the most popular romances composed in the 12th century, and played a key role in the development of Old French narrative literature. Analysis of the text is complicated by the fact that it exists in a number of different versions, which are difficult to study using a conventional printed edition. This project has produced an electronic resource that allows researchers to read and compare all the different versions in detail, without having to work from the original manuscripts (held in libraries from Yale to the Vatican) or microfilms.

The Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture in Britain and Ireland

Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

The Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture in Britain and Ireland (CRSBI) is an evolving electronic archive of British and Irish Romanesque stone sculpture.

ROMANESQUE SCULPTURE

Romanesque sculpture marks a high point of artistic production in Britain and Ireland, corresponding to the boom in high-quality building that followed the Norman Conquest in 1066, and reflecting a new set of links with mainland Europe. A good deal of this sculpture remains in parish churches and cathedrals, houses and halls, castles and museums throughout these isles.
