Clivaz et al. (eds.), Ancient Worlds in Digital Culture

Ancient Worlds in Digital Culture

Edited by Claire Clivaz, Paul Dilley, David Hamidović
The volume presents a selection of research projects in Digital Humanities applied to the “Biblical Studies” in the widest sense and context, including Early Jewish and Christian studies, hence the title “Ancient Worlds”. Taken as a whole, the volume restitutes the merging Digital Culture at the beginning of the 21st century. It also promotes many examples which attest to a change of paradigm in the textual scholarship of “Ancient Worlds”: categories are reshaped; textuality is (re-)investigated according to its relationships with oral and visualization; methods, approaches and practices are no more a fixed conglomeration but they are mobilized according to their contexts and the new available digital tools.
