New digital life for ancient grammatical studies
Among outstanding works of great importance for European heritage, the Ars grammatica of Prisciano di Cesarea is a special one. This last antique work of the Latin language includes many passages of lost ancient Greek texts. It stimulated European linguistic studies and through the centuries served Western scholars to practice Latin and Greek. With digital technology, Prisciano’s work can be studied again in a multidisciplinary approach. The EU-funded PAGES project enables a new critical edition of the Ars with systematic analysis and translations. PAGES will reconstruct Prisciano’s role in linguistic and Greek studies through historical, philological, palaeographical and digital humanities research and a multispectral analysis of manuscripts. All outcomes will be accessible on a digital platform.
