Newly Open Access Monograph Series: Beihefte der Bonner Jahrbücher

Beihefte der Bonner Jahrbücher
Die Buchreihe steht für die Interessensgebiete der universitären historischen und archäologischen Forschung in der klassischen Altertumswissenschaft einerseits und die musealen Interessen des Bonner Landesmuseums andererseits. Ein Schwerpunktthema ist die Archäologie und Militärgeschichte des Rheinlandes, und auch klassisch-archäologische Themen finden hier Platz. Neben umfassenden Abhandlungen und Qualifikationsarbeiten sind auch Sammelbände, Festschriften und Kongressberichte erschienen. Vergriffene Bände werden durch die Herausgeber in lockerer Folge als Digitalisate eingestellt.

Untersuchungen zu den Reichsstraßen in den westlichen Provinzen des Imperium Romanum

Beihefte der Bonner Jahrbücher, Band 55
Die Studie legt den Fokus auf die Reichsstraßen in den Provinzen des Imperium Romanum, ihre Definition, Administration und Finanzierung. Auf italischem Boden wird eine Via publica durch Rechtsnormen  definiert, für überregionale Straßen in den Provinzen sind wir hingegen auf Meilensteine entlang der Strecke, die Erwähnung der Verbindung in den Itineraren sowie ihre Darstellung auf der Tabula Peutingeriana angewiesen. Die Administration erfolgt in Italien durch Straßenkuratoren, in den Provinzen primär durch die Städte, punktuell von den Statthaltern unterstützt; kaiserliche Eingriffe sind selten. Folglich obliegen auch die Finanzierung und der Unterhalt den Städten an der Strecke.

The Art of Counting

The Art of Counting
Art of Counting
The Art of Counting is a ground-breaking research project that applies statistical methods to the study of visual material.  This approach has already proven its immense value through a successful doctoral dissertation (directed by David O’Connor) that focused on the reliefs of the memorial temple of Ramses III at Medinet Habu.  The data-driven methodology proved to be an extremely efficient and informative tool for investigating the complex and intricately interwoven iconography present in these scenes.  Currently, the Art of Counting approach is being applied to ancient Egyptian imagery, but the methodology is equally well suited to research visual material from any era.  See About the Project for more information on this innovative effort.

This endeavor is an international and collaborative one, bringing together specialists across the globe.  The scale of the task at hand–quantifying, recording, and analyzing the immense body of visual material from ancient Egypt–simply requires a group effort and the Art of Counting team already includes more than a dozen Egyptologists in addition to our statistical and technological partners.   As we begin investigating other eras, this group of specialists will further expand.  Find out more at About the Team.

The Ancient Egyptian Demonology Project is made up of a group of scholars from around the world focussing on the subject of demons in Ancient Egypt from its earliest times (Predynastic) to the Byzantine.

As in the past, demons abound in the media today—from tales of possession to the labeling of political policies as “demonic,” to the channeling of spirits for healing. Some of the most prevalent rituals in the ancient and modern worlds are those that are designed to target demons who were blamed for a host of physical and psychological ailments, problems, and afflictions. Other rites call upon helpful demons for protection and defense.

For the ordinary person in Ancient Egypt, they likely played a greater role in their everyday lives than the well-known gods Amun, Ra, Isis, Osiris, or Hathor.

One of our aims is to illuminate this darker side of Ancient Egyptian life.
