David Shaw: Bibliography of editions of the Satires of Juvenal published in Europe up to the year 1600
The Satires of Juvenal (Decimus Iunius Iuvenalis, 55? A.D. – 138? A.D.) were a constant part of the reading matter of the European Renaissance and were regularly studied in schools and colleges, especially in the sixteenth century, even if they were less popular than the poems of Vergil or the comedies of Terence.
This educational need was facilitated by the newly emergent printing industry. The earliest recorded printed edition of Juvenal was produced in 1468 or 1469, probably in Rome. By the end of the sixteenth century, at least 206 editions of the full text, selections, commentaries and translations of Juvenal had been produced for sale in 43 towns in 9 (modern) countries across Europe.
This wiki presents entries for these editions, many with images and links to digitised copies. Each entry includes a link to a PDF file with a traditional bibliographical description of the edition. A full census of surviving copies is given; please report any further copies for addition to the wiki.
The wiki has been implemented using MediaWiki software. This facilitates automated indexing by a multiplicity of categories, e.g. printers, booksellers, towns, commentators, libraries, formats and much more. The original version used Semantic MediaWiki but was discontinued when its host site went out of existence.

“The project uses a variety of readily available web technologies to present the text and image content. This website uses a combination of WordPress and Semantic Mediawiki for the text content and IIIF compliant imagery. The durhampriory.ac.uk website uses WordPress for the basic content about the project. The blogging facility allows for updating on project progress, especially for announcing as each digitised manuscript becomes available online. These announcements are then enrolled on the Digitised Priory books page. The website also uses Semantic Mediawiki to record more structured information about the Priory Library, from descriptions of the manuscripts and interpretation of their content to background details of the individuals, institutions and buildings who built and ran the Priory.”

Kamigraphie: Zur Ikonographie und Ikonologie japanischer Gottheiten
“Kamigraphie ist ein Wiki-Projekt von Studierenden für Studierende, das im Rahmen universitärer Lehrveranstaltungen erarbeitet wird. Der Projekttitel setzt sich aus zwei Teilen zusammen, „Kami“ und „Graphie“. Kami 神 ist ein japanisches Wort, das in etwa mit „Gottheit“ übersetzt werden kann. Im engeren Sinne bezeichnet Kami die Gottheiten des Shinto (wtl. „Weg der Kami“, die einheimische Religion Japans). Wie man sich diese Gottheiten genau vorzustellen hat, ist keineswegs einfach zu bestimmen und im übrigen auch historischen Veränderungen unterworfen. Ziel dieses Projekts ist es daher, Inhalt und Bedeutungsumfang des Begriffs Kami genauer abzustecken. Graphie impliziert sowohl Gezeichnetes und Gemaltes (Bildquellen) als auch Erzähltes (im Sinne von Historiographie). Je nach Thema und Quellenlage wird in manchen Fällen mehr auf visuelle, in anderen mehr auf textliche Quellen zurückgegriffen.”

The aim of this project is to develop a new approach to classical poetry, based on how listeners and readers imagined the Greek and Roman poets. From antiquity to the present, people have produced a vast range of narrative and visual representations of the ancient poets, drawing from three main sources: their understanding of classical poetry, other representations, and their own personal, lived experience. The main contention of this project is that representations of the ancient poets tell us something crucial – not about the actual poets of Greece and Rome, but about their readers. Classical poetry has been transmitted for over two millennia: this project focuses on the people who recognised its value, ensured its survival, and reconfigured its relevance for their particular contexts. These people often had a powerful sense of the poets’ presence: they saw the ancient poets in dreams, had imaginary conversations with them, made fun of them, wrote biographies and anecdotes, produced portraits, and visited the places where they were supposed to have lived and died. An analysis of how readers imagined the Greek and Roman poets offers a powerful means of investigating the shifting social and cultural value of classical poetry from antiquity to the present. The project is directed by Prof. Barbara Graziosi and funded by the European Research Council.

OGD Cockpit (Open Government Data Cockpit) is a demonstration site meant to showcase the potential of Semantic MediaWiki in supporting a collaborative effort of interactively putting together a data catalog inside public administrations. The cities of Bonn and Cologne (Germany) and Linz (Austria) have Open Government Data Initiatives, but they lack the tools to set up an internal data catalog. The current standard is CKAN for an OGD portal, but CKAN lacks the features needed to allow for easy front end data collection, discussing data quality and planning release stages. In order to put this "proof on concept" into reality, a way of pushing data from SMW to CKAN will be needed, but this can be discussed later on.

Von der umfangreichen Produktion lateinischer Texte, die auf dem Gebiet des historischen Tirol (heutiges Bundesland Tirol, Südtirol und Trentino) seit dem frühen Mittelalter bis ins 21. Jahrhundert entstanden sind, hat sich in den Bibliotheken und Archiven von Klöstern, Schulen, Universitäten, Städten und anderer Institutionen eine beträchtliche Zahl an Handschriften und Drucken erhalten. In den Jahren 2002 bis 2009 wurde diese Literatur in einem vom Österreichischen Fonds zur Förderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung finanzierten Projekt unter der wissenschaftlichen Leitung von Karl-Heinz Töchterle systematisch erschlossen.
Das Ergebnis des Durchforstens der wichtigeren Bibliotheken und Archive Tirols war eine umfangreiche Datenbank mit mehr als 7000 Werk- und rund 2500 Autoreneinträgen. Von dieser großen Zahl konnte naturgemäß nur eine kleine Auswahl in die schließlich 2012 bei Böhlau unter dem Titel Tyrolis Latina (hrsg. von Martin Korenjak, Florian Schaffenrath, Lav Šubarić und Karlheinz Töchterle) erschienenen Literaturgeschichte der lateinischen Literatur in Tirol aufgenommen werden. In vorliegendem Wiki soll der Schatz der im Hintergrund der Tyrolis Latina angelegten Datenbank in vollem Umfang der Öffentlichkeit in aufbereiteter Form zugänglich gemacht werden.

ZweiDat (Datenbank sprachlicher Zweifelsfälle)
Kallimachos project presenting cases of linguistic ambiguities in early German language. "Hier finden Sie die Würzburger Datenbank sprachlicher Zweifelsfälle (ZweiDat). In diesem Portal werden maßgebliche Quellentexte erfasst, die sich mit sprachlichen Zweifelsfällen und vergleichbaren Normproblemen beschäftigen. Es handelt sich dabei nicht um sprachwissenschaftliche Texte im engeren Sinn, sondern um normierende Texte, die als Bestandteile des neuhochdeutschen Sprachkodex gelten können. Damit wird ein einfacher Zugang zu demjenigen Textkorpus geschaffen, das bei der Entstehung, Bewertung und Normierung der neuhochdeutschen Standardsprache eine wesentliche Rolle spielt(e). Die Texte, die hier systematisch und im Zusammenhang zugänglich gemacht werden, zeigen für die jüngere Geschichte des Deutschen, was nach Ansicht viel gelesener Autoren als "gutes" und "richtiges" Deutsch (Standarddeutsch) gelten soll."
