Nuevo portal de manuscritos árabes y hebreos de las bibliotecas del CSIC

Nuevo portal de manuscritos árabes y hebreos de las bibliotecas del CSIC

El portal de manuscritos está diseñado para informatizar, digitalizar y hacer accesibles todas las colecciones de manuscritos existentes en bibliotecas del CSIC, contemplando una amplia diversidad de alfabetos (latino, árabe, hebreo, persa…)

Nuevo portal de manuscritos árabes y hebreos de las bibliotecas del CSIC2011-10-09 -

La colaboración entre la Unidad de Coordinación de Bibliotecas del CSIC, el Instituto de Lenguas y Culturas del Mediterráneo y Próximo Oriente (Centro de Ciencias Humanas y Sociales del CSIC) y la Escuela de Estudios Árabes de Granada ha dado lugar a este proyecto intramural del CSIC, co-dirigido entre los arriba mencionados institutos de investigación y sus respectivas bibliotecas.

El objetivo principal del proyecto es ofrecer a los investigadores un acceso a las colecciones de manuscritos árabes y hebreos en bibliotecas del CSIC por medio de un portal que incorpora sus datos codicológicos y su digitalización.

Esto se ha concretado en la limpieza, restauración y correcta colocación de los manuscritos, la descripción codicológica de cada uno de los manuscritos, su informatización de los manuscritos en el Catálogo Colectivo del CSIC generando su registro MARC21 y haciéndoles visibles mediante la implementación del protocolo OAI, la digitalización a color y generación de metadatos METS-PREMIS de los manuscritos, lo que supone más de 31.000 imágenes y, por último, el diseño del portal e interfaz de consulta, sistemas de navegación y funcionalidades de visualización de los manuscritos.

El portal alberga documentos escritos en árabe, hebreo y aljamiado conservados en dos bibliotecas del CSIC: Tomás Navarro Tomás (Madrid) y Escuela de Estudios Árabes (Granada).
La colección de manuscritos en lenguas orientales de la biblioteca Tomás Navarro Tomás consta de 133 documentos, de los cuales 20 son hebreos, 33 son códices árabes, 42 aljamiados, 3 persas y 35 son carpetas de documentos sueltos procedentes de las encuadernaciones de los códices.
El portal se completa con el fondo manuscrito en lengua árabe y hebrea que se conserva en la biblioteca de la Escuela de Estudios Árabes de Granada, constituido por 134 obras en árabe distribuidas en 63 volúmenes y 1 códice misceláneo en hebreo. La procedencia de una parte de la colección se remonta a los primeros años de andadura del instituto como unidad dependiente de la Universidad de Granada, cuando se impulsó la creación de la biblioteca con un fondo inicial procedente de la Bibliotecas Provincial Universitaria y la de la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, según recoge el Reglamento publicado en la Gaceta de Madrid en noviembre de 1932. El resto de manuscritos se adquirió posteriormente, ya con el centro vinculado al CSIC, por donación o compra.

Call for papers: Medieval Scripts and the Rules

Call for papers: Medieval Scripts and the Rules

19th International Medieval Congress at Leeds (19th July-12th July 2012): Call for proposals about Medieval Scripts and the Rules

2011-09-12 -

All societies operate according to rules, both written and often unwritten. Medieval societies were no exception. Rules affected kingship and lordship; urban and rural communities; secular church and regular monastic life, as well as social groupings, aspects of economic, religious, legal and intellectual life, and even literature and the other arts. People made rules, lived by the rules, and broke rules. In view of the fundamental importance of this topic, the IMC has chosen as its special thematic focus in 2012:

Rules to Follow (or Not)

Medieval rules were multifaceted. They might be written down or transmitted orally, configured as conventions, and composed as canons, or imposed by custom and usage, be transmitted by commands and laws, be defined by tradition and consensus or handed down by some higher authority. They might encompass an entire society or culture or be limited to one section of society or a single activity. They might have been associated with legal sanctions and/or with morality, and concepts of sin and virtue. They might become differentiated and varied over time, and they were transmitted from one area of life to another. Rules were frequently long-lasting but equally might sometimes lose their validity over time, or mutate into new forms.

Areas of discussion could include:

The role played by rules in differing forms of institutional life: in kingship and principalities, in territories, towns and villages, in craft guilds, sodalities and brotherhoods; in the Church, within dioceses, ecclesiastical synods, monasteries, and religious or professed knightly orders etc.

The social and intellectual frameworks of rules: social stratifications and hierarchies; sacred or profane spaces; religious axioms; traditions, myths, taboos, social exclusion

The legal framework of rules: divine commandments, or customs, statutes, resolutions, decrees, monastic rules, and charismatic decisions

The types and sources of rules within the fields of scholarship, economy, literature, technology, architecture, fine arts, and music: canons, genres, styles, practices and methods, exemplarity

The presentation and reflections of rules: as subjects of literature and art; as items of jurisprudence, economics, theology and philosophy, and as ritual and ceremonial figurations

Modalities of creating, adapting, legitimating, proclaiming, enforcing, transferring, transgressing, overriding and/or resisting rules.

To propose a paper, please send a brief abstract (250 words max) to dominique.stutzmann [at] irht.cnrs.fr  or georg.vogeler [at] uni-graz.at. The deadline for receipt of submissions is 20th September 2011 or complete the IMC Online Proposal Forms you could find HERE. Session proposals must be submitted by 30 September 2011. Hard copies of the proposal forms are available on request after 16 July 2011.
