Buy this book together with Saladin by Peter Gubser
The essays in this volume reflect a new generation of classicists hunting for new methods to understand and to disseminate ancient texts, both to increase the body of published information about classical Greek and Latin and also to encourage these languages to play an increased role in the intellectual life of humanity. In discussing areas as diverse as teaching, citation, criticism, collaboration, epigraphy, geography, grammar, lexicography, and digitization, this volume demonstrates the new scope and potential in Digital Classics research.+Saladin, the great twelfth century Middle East leader, not only created an empire, but also reduced the Crusader presence in the Holy Land.  In a comprehensive manner and clear prose, Peter Gubser describes how Saladin rose to power, conquered lands, governed peoples, and raised armies.  In addition, he clearly addresses Saladin’s imperial motives, a combination of ambition and devotion to the ideal of unity in Islam.Save $51.76

Computer Assisted Research on the Bible in the 21st Century by Luis Vegas Montaner
The application of computer technology to the edition and linguistic analysis of biblical texts has provided, in the last thirty years, advanced tools for research purposes as well as for teaching the Bible in the classroom. This discipline requires, nonetheless, a critical evaluation from a historical perspective, examining past and present achievements and failures. This collection of essays evaluates the current tools and considers what is needed to satisfy the increasing demand for software related to the biblical texts, and offers an overview of different trends in computer technology on the Bible.

Scribal Habits of Codex Sinaiticus by Dirk Jongkind
Codex Sinaiticus is one of the oldest, famous, and most important manuscripts of the Bible. At least three scribes copied the text manually, and they were faced with many decisions: What do I do when I spot an error in the text I just copied? What is the right spelling of this word? Is it time for a new paragraph? This book studies a variety of textual and non-textual phenomena in Codex Sinaiticus. We discover more about this important biblical manuscript as well as the individuals with their own habits, qualities, and skill levels who produced it.

Word of Tree and Whisper of Stone, and other papers on Ugaritian thought by Nicolas Wyatt

Textual Variation: Theological and Social Tendencies? by H. A. G. Houghton
Did scribes intentionally change the text of the New Testament? This book argues they did not and disputes the claims that variant readings are theologically motivated. Using evidence gathered from some of the earliest surviving biblical manuscripts these essays reconstruct the copying habits of scribes and explore the contexts in which they worked. Alongside these are studies of selected early Christian writings, which illustrate attitudes to and examples of textual change.

This collection of essays represents the wide perspective of current research being undertaken in Digital Classics. Classics has always been at the forefront of the use of computing in Humanities research. We are now beginning to see new intellectual practices and a new cyberinfrastructure emerging which go beyond relatively superficial technological methods which evolved alongside print technologies. These innovative research environments allow Classical scholars to access, create, manipulate, interrogate, analyse, and utilise disparate digital sources in their complex research tasks.

The essays in this volume reflect a new generation of classicists hunting for new methods to understand and to disseminate ancient texts, both to increase the body of published information about classical Greek and Latin and also to encourage these languages to play an increased role in the intellectual life of humanity. In discussing areas as diverse as teaching, citation, criticism, collaboration, epigraphy, geography, grammar, lexicography, and digitization, this volume demonstrates the new scope and potential in Digital Classics research.

These essays emerged from a workshop on October 5th 2007 on the subject of Cyberinfrastructure in the Classics, funded by the National Science Foundation and hosted by the University of Kentucky. They serve as a festschrift to Allen Ross Scaife, Professor of Classics at the University of Kentucky and founding editor of the Stoa Consortium for Electronic Publication in the Humanities (stoa.org), who did more than any one person to advance the field of classics in the decade that carried us from the twentieth to the twenty-first century.
