A consortium of eleven universities is hosting a series of intensive programs in papyrology for each of the summers from 2003 to 2115. (See list below.) During this period, the American Society of Papyrologists is seeking to raise a permanent endowment for the program so that the series can be continued indefinitely. (If you would like to contribute to the endowment, click here, or contact the ASP This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for further information.)

The principal objective of the seminars is to provide participants with sufficient instruction and practical experience to enable them to make productive use of texts on papyrus in their research and to become active scholars in the field of papyrology. Each seminar has a distinctive linguistic, chronological, or thematic focus, reflecting the interests and available resources of the host institution. Some seminars will involve forms of the Egyptian language and scripts as well as Greek.

The seminars are directed at advanced graduate students and younger faculty in relevant fields, including Classics, Ancient History, Egyptology, Archaeology, Ancient Religions, and Biblical Studies. Approximately 10 participants are chosen for each seminar by the host institution. The programs are intensive and 5-6 weeks long. The faculty normally include both those who regularly teach at the host institution and guest professors from other universities in North America and Europe. ASP provides a certificate to those completing the institute, but the host institutions neither grant credit nor provide a transcript.

Most seminars offer stipends to defray some of the participants' costs. There is no tuition fee.

2003 Yale University: Robert G. Babcock, Ann Ellis Hanson
2004 University of California, Berkeley: Todd M. Hickey

Starting in 2014, the Society will subvent co-sponsored institutes on a biennial schedule.

Our goal is to establish an endowment to subvent and continue the program in perpetuum. Through the generosity of its members and friends, ASP has raised a substantial amount towards that goal, but seeks your help to finish the task. If you would like to contribute to the endowment, click here.

    Giovanni R. Ruffini, The Bishop, the Eparch, and the King: Old Nubian Texts from Qasr Ibrim (P. QI 4). Journal of Juristic Papyrology supplements, 22.   Warsaw:  Journal of Juristic Papyrology, 2014.  Pp. xiv, 367.  ISBN 9788393842513.  $70.00.

    Reviewed by Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei, Centre for Modern Thought, University of Aberdeen (vincent@vangervenoei.com)
    Giovanni Ruffini here brings us the fourth volume of Old Nubian material from the excavations at Qasr Ibrim, more than twenty years after the first three publications by Plumley and Browne.1 This large volume of previously unpublished material, which also forms the documentary backbone to Ruffini's study Medieval Nubia: A Social and Economic History,2 gathers in it a wide selection of documentary materials including land-sales, letters, a royal decree, and accounts, dating mainly from the twelfth century and providing many new insights into the historical, social, and economical context of the multilingual community of Qasr Ibrim, one of the important centers of medieval Nubian culture.
    In his introduction, Ruffini first offers a short background of the Old Nubian Qasr Ibrim material and its publication history. The section “Historical Commentary” builds on the preliminary analyses of the material in Medieval Nubia, pointing out several interesting new insights into the political structure of medieval Nubia and details about its economical and fiscal system such as the first attestation of the gold dinar in Old Nubian (108.113). The organization of the documentary material is made according to genre and origin: texts from Qasr Ibrim Archive 1, mainly containing land-sales written on scrolls found in a jar; texts from Archive 4, which are all letters; and finally—save for a royal decree by King Siti, a bilingual Greek-Old Nubian literary document, presumably by a certain bishop Iōannēs, and two miscellaneous texts—a large remainder of letters and accounts.
