ICCS Launches GoFundMe for Garrett Fagan Scholarship
The Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies (ICCS) has started a GoFundMe page in order to establish a scholarship in honor of Garrett Fagan, who passed away earlier this year.
"Garrett will always be remembered as an influential mentor, an inspiring teacher, a supportive colleague, a loving father, and a fierce friend, and for this reason, we've decided to establish a scholarship in Garrett's name for the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome."
You can visit the GoFundMe page to read the rest of the information about the proposed scholarship or to donate.

Abstract
In 2011, the European Research Council awarded Dr Hugh Houghton a Starting Grant to lead a five-year project investigating the earliest commentaries on Paul as sources for the biblical text.1 This project, known by its acronym COMPAUL, was intended to build on Dr Houghton’s doctoral work analysing Augustine’s gospel citations.2 The aim was to instigate a better understanding of commentaries and their contribution to the transmission of the New Testament in anticipation of two major editing projects: the Vetus Latina edition of the four principal letters of Paul and the Novum Testamentum Graecum Editio Critica Maior of all Pauline Epistles being planned by the IGNTP.

Mertens-Pack 3

The new MP³ database is now available online. We are still working to improve its presentation and performance.
Some new research parameters are still being validated. For the time being, research is limited to the numbers MP³ 1 to 3026.83, already available on the previous database.
As announced during the International Congresses of Papyrology in Geneva (1) and Warsaw (2), it will be soon possible to research new categories of Greek and Latin papyri (magical, Herculaneum, documentary, Jewish and Christian) and to use more diversified research strategies (papyri which are both “literary” and “documentary” or “magical” or “Jewish and Christian”; literary reminiscences in documentary papyri; literary papyri containing a documentary text on the other side; literary papyri associated to an ancient owner; author’s name and title written on the papyrus).
We thank all users for their understanding and patience. For more information or in case of problems, please contact the CEDOPAL on the following email address: cedopal@ulg.ac.be.

      Digital Athenaeus
      http://www.digitalathenaeus.org/img/book_bg.jpg
      The Digital Athenaeus is a project directed by Monica Berti at the Alexander von Humboldt Chair of Digital Humanities at the University of Leipzig for producing a digital edition of the Deipnosophists of Athenaeus of Naucratis.
      The work is focused on annotating quotations and text reuses in the Deipnosophists in order to accomplish two main results:
      1. Provide an inventory of authors and works cited by Athenaeus.
      2. Implement a data model for identifying, analyzing, and citing uniquely instances of text reuse in the Deipnosophists.
      The project provides users with tools for consulting the text of the Deipnosophists and getting information about authors and works reused by Athenaeus.
      The Digital Athenaeus is also implementing a system for involving scholars and students in improving and disambiguating data pertaining to the work of the Naucratites.
