Up Close and Personal: 3D Printing Brings Ancient Egypt to Life

g_n_nofretete_11

Years ago, I visited Berlin and had the privilege of seeing first-hand the bust of Nefertiti, the crown jewel in the collection of the city’s fantastic Egyptian Museum. Being in the same room as such an iconic and recognizable artifact, I was first taken aback by how small and delicate it appeared compared to the image I had in my head. Just as quickly, I also came to understand that any picture could not capture […]

Unpublished homilies by Severian of Gabala which are not listed in the CPG?

I’m preparing to commission an English translation of CPG 4188, Severian of Gabala’s De Spiritu Sancto (=PG 52. 813-826).  While searching the web for any indication of an existing translation – for I wouldn’t want to duplicate – I came across an article by Danish scholar Holger Villadsen here.  Then, blessedly, I came across a draft of it here, OCR’d, thereby allowing me to use Google Translate to follow the text. Villadsen was going to […]

Severian of Gabala – On repentance and compunction – now online in English

Bryson Sewell has now translated for us Severian of Gabala’s sermon on repentance.  This is another rather splendid ancient sermon, as most of those attributed to Severian seem to be (so far!).  Whether they are really by Severian may reasonably be doubted a lot of the time, I admit. Anyway here it is.  It’s also at Archive.org.  As ever, these are public domain.  Use them however you like.
