Some new stuff
The World Union of Jewish Studies has launched a new website. It includes the programme for the upcoming World Congress of Jewish Studies, and a new version of their database.
Volume 74 of Hebrew Union College Annual has been released.
Through the latest AJS Perspectives, I became aware of a new search engine. Through which I found this database of thesis summaries at Penn.
ATID have placed many of Shalom Carmy's articles online.
A complicated new way of making Gemara easier.
And a revision tool for The Rule of Four.
I'm still waiting for Talmudic Studies III. Meanwhile I'm reading a novel, another one of the Da Vinci followups. The following passage stood out in its stupidity:
"A codex -" She stopped and half turned. She seemed nonplussed at having to define so basic a concept. "A codex is just - it's a codex. As opposed to a scroll, or a wax tablet, or a rock with words chiseled on it. A codex is a set of printed pages, folded and bound with a spine between two covers. It's what someone like you would call a book."
