Syriaca.org: the Syriac reference portal
Newly launched under the auspices of a consortium of academic institutions including Princeton University and Vanderbilt University, Syriaca.org is an online reference work for the study of Syriac authors, literatures and manuscripts.
Scholars of Syriac are invited to collaborate and contribute to the development of the portal, which will eventually comprise
- an ontology or classification system for Syriac studies
- a multi-lingual authority file for standardising references to Syriac authors, texts and place names
- an online encyclopaedia
- a gazetteer of maps and geographic information related to Syriac studies
- a classified bibliography
