There’s been a spate of resources that have popped up online in recent days for excellent resources to study the ancient world. Some of these resources have been around a while, but have gotten some recent attention and traffic on various blogs and news sites. Here are some valuable links:
The New English Translation of the Septuagint (NETS) Online
- this is the most recent scholarly translation of the Septuagint
The Gospel of Thomas Resource Center
- Do your research on Thomas here, not with Dan Brown and Michael Baigent. That way something you say about Thomas has a prayer of being right.
The Ancient World Mapping Center
- The Center promotes cartography, historical geography, and geographic information science as essential disciplines within the field of ancient studies through innovative and collaborative research, teaching, and community outreach activities.
- For the first time, the latest and most exhaustive information available on the Giza Necropolis will be made available to everyone through a realistic experience that can satisfy mere cu- riosity or encourage more demanding research inquiries
Awesome resources! Thanks for posting.
It’s a funny result of being under your tutelage that one of things I say to myself when I look at a new translation is, “Gee I wonder how they translated Deut 8:32,” as a way to understand which texts they translated from.
I would add that “Deuteronomion” just sounds cooler than “Deuteronomy.”
