About HumaReC

How is Humanities research reshaped and transformed by the digital rhythm of data production and publication ? HumaReC investigates this question using the test-case of the edition of a unique trilingual Greek, Latin and Arabic New Testament manuscript.

Continuous Publishing & Peer-Review

Humanities research is reshaped and transformed by the digital rhythm of data production and publication. The challenge of the project is to develop a new model of Humanities research that affords a continuous publication of data and analysis as well as the evaluation of experts . In this perspective, HumaReC offers several levels of publications.

The manuscript viewer offers images and transcriptions that will be continuously updated with new folios.

The research blog will regularly provide postings of research results and input regarding the manuscript and the digital development of the project.

Communicate with HumaReC! Continuous publishing offers the possibility of an involving document that can change in response to discussions and reactions. We encourage you to comment on the blog and to discuss in the forum.

The web book offers a completely new format for the Humanities: it will present research results peer-reviewed by an editorial board of experts and by the publisher Brill, change and grow over the course of the project period and be able to respond quickly to advancements in Humanities research.

Marciana Gr. Z. 11 (379) contains the Acts, the catholics letters and the Pauline letters in Greek, Latin and Arabic. This is the only trilingual Greek, Latin and Arabic manuscript of the New Testament that we know about. It was made most likely in Sicily in the 12th century.
