Homer and New Book Technologies: Antiquity to Present

Homer and New Book Technologies: Antiquity to Present | Ancient Greek Literature | Scoop.it

Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey would be among the first Greek books printed in Florence, and again we see the new printing technology being applied first to the Iliad and Odyssey before any other Greek text.

.....

it is interesting to me that the transition to printed books over hand-written manuscripts came with the same dreams and anxieties that occupy our current transition to digitalia: promises of all-encompassing libraries, the collection of all knowable information

....

In keeping with the trend, many early digital humanities projects revolve around classical languages and literature. The project that is often regarded as the beginning of the whole digital humanities enterprise was Roberto Busa’s creation of a Latin dictionary of the corpus of Thomas Aquinas. The digital edition of this work, with hypertext links (“cum hypertextibus”), was available in 1992. Digital editions of Homer were not far away. The Perseus Project has a long history, but at present you can read editions of the Iliad and Odyssey in ancient Greek, with two commentaries and two translations available for simultaneous viewing.
