– Con forte dolore personale, il Presidente del Consiglio Scientifico della SIAC informa i soci e i simpatizzanti che il 29 settembre scorso, all’età di 85 anni, è mancato all’affetto della moglie, dei tre figli e dei quattro nipoti il prof. Carl Joachim Classen, membro del Consiglio Scientifico SIAC dalla sua fondazione e filologo greco e latino tra i più importanti dal secondo dopoguerra all’inizio del nuovo Millennio. Il Comitato scientifico, l’Ufficio di Presidenza e la SIAC tutta formulano le più sentite condoglianze ai familiari, condoglianze che per i molti che hanno avuto l’onore di conoscere il prof. Classen di persona si caricano di sincera mestizia, mitigata solo dalla consapevolezza che nell’arco di vita che la Natura ci consente di percorrere Carl Joachim Classen ha ben meritato di sé, lasciando un ricordo indelebile di grande uomo e di insigne studioso. Ermanno Malaspina

C’est avec une profonde douleur personnelle que le Président du Conseil scientifique de la SIAC informe les membres et les abonnés que, le 29 septembre dernier, à l’âge de 85 ans, le prof. Carl Joachim Classen a été enlevé à l’affection des siens, de sa femme, de ses trois fils et quatre neveux. Membre du Conseil scientifique de la SIAC depuis sa fondation, cet helléniste et latiniste fut un des plus importants philologues, de l’après-guerre à l’aube du millénaire. Le Comité scientifique, le Bureau, la SIAC et son président présentent à sa famille leurs condoléances émues, témoignages de sympathie qui, pour ceux qui ont eu l’honneur de connaître le prof. Classen en personne, sont chargés d’une tristesse douloureuse, tristesse que tempère, peut être, cette conviction : Carl Joachim Classen a su enrichir la longue vie que la nature lui a accordée, laissant l’impérissable souvenir d’une grande humanité alliée à une science incomparable. Ermanno Malaspina.

III. VARIA

1 – A VENIR & INFORMATIONS / PROSSIME INIZIATIVE & INFORMAZIONI / FORTHCOMING & INFORMATION

Petition: Quo vadis? VUB zonder Latijn? Free University of Brussels without Latin? In 2012, the Faculty of Arts decided to gradually cut down Latin as a major subject. However, the detailed budget plan now anticipates the abandonment of all Latin courses, as well as the introductory courses of Ancient Greek and most subjects relating to classical culture. By this radical cutting off of the classical roots, the faculty loses an essential component to the understanding of western philosophy, art, history, language and literature. By this petition, we ask the preservation in the long term of one Latin professorship at the Free University of Brussels. We are convinced that such position can serve the purpose of not only the faculty of arts, but also the entire university community. To sign the petition click here.

Loebolus. Loebolus is actually a project from Ryan Baumann which collects all 245 of the downloadable Loeb Classics on a single page. You can download any individual volume or the whole set in a single 3.2 GB file. You can also download a .zip containing all 245 PDF’s. LINK

Online Companion to the Worlds of Roman Women. Online Companion was conceived as a collaborative website in December 2005, designed to accompany the book The Worlds of Roman Women (published March 2005), the first intermediate/advanced Latin text-commentary on Roman women. In the anthology the co-authors offered a wide variety of primary sources in Latin by and about women, from the earliest periods through the second century CE, thus allowing students of any academic grade to experience different Latin styles and diverse genres.

The Ancient History Bulletin Online Reviews. Beginning with the publication year, “The Ancient History Bulletin” will publish all reviews online, in a new online journal entitled “The Ancient History Bulletin Online Reviews”. Reviews will be formatted as pdf files, with continuous pagination for all the reviews published in any given year. Reviewers will therefore be able to refer to their reviews in same manner as reviews published in hard copy; e.g., ‘Review of xxx’, AHB Online Reviews 1 (2011) xx–xx. Links : AHBOR 1 (2011), AHBOR 2 (2012), AHBOR 3 (2013).
