From The Digital Classicist Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search




Digital-only, peer-reviewed reference work about the fourth-century monastic theologian Evagrius Ponticus (ca. 345-399). Updated annually, it provides definitive, integrated lists of Evagrius's works, of editions and translations of those works, and of studies related to his life and thought. The Guide also includes a sourcebook of key ancient testimonies to Evagrius and his reception, in English translation, as well as a checklist of images from the ancient world.

The Guide takes relatively new approaches to open-access academic publishing in the digital humanities, and so is anticipated to develop over the coming years. Future editions will include a manuscript checklist, images of manuscripts, transcriptions of those manuscripts, and open-source critical editions of Evagrius's writings.

Master files are built upon the Text Alignment Network-style Text Encoding Initiative XML. Particularly of note is the Corpus of Texts, which is populated by class 2 and class 3 files in concert with a Zotero database.
