Classics Links

 Blogs:

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.

Sententiae Antiquae: The “wisdom of the ancients” with a social justice twist.

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.
