This post comes from the team of editors creating the HMT editions of Iliad 15 and Iliad 18 in the Venetus A manuscript during the Holy Cross Summer Research program in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences: Brian Clark ‘15, Claude Hanley ‘18, Stephanie Neville ‘17, Charlie Schufreider ‘17, Alex Simrell ‘16, and Melody Wauke ‘17. Their perceptive solution to the problem of this particular scholion and its lemma demonstrates their masterful familiarity with the Venetus A manuscript and the practices of its scribe. — Mary Ebbott
This post was written by Brian Clark (Holy Cross ‘15) and Alex Simrell (Holy Cross ‘16). In it they observe the practices of the Venetus A scribe when he has too much material for his usual layout of certain types of scholia on the same page, and they draw some preliminary conclusions from those observations. Their work was accomplished during the Holy Cross Summer Research program in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences and was supported by the Center for Hellenic Studies. — Mary Ebbott
The 2015 summer seminar at the Center for Hellenic Studies ended this week. We owe a debt of thanks to all the participants. Together with a team at the College of the Holy Cross that is continuing to work on HMT editions throughout July, they have helped us test and pull together an increasingly thorough set of project documentation, available at http://homermultitext.github.io/hmt-docs/.
hmt-utils library is a JVM package for analyzing editions of texts that follow the HMT project guidelines for editors. It now has its own home page on this site at http://homermultitext.github.io/hmt-utils/.
Images of the Geneva Iliad, which has undergone extensive restoration and digitization in a partnership between the E-Codices project of Switzerland and the Homer Multitext, have now been published. Here is an excerpt from the E-Codices press release:
