Paulys Realenzyklopädie der klassischen AltertumswissenschaftEdit

I'm going to maintain the items relating to the over 17,000 articles from Paulys Realenzyklopädie der klassischen Altertumswissenschaft (RE) featured on the German Wikisource project.

After creating 15756 new items for these articles on May 27th and 28th, there's much to do (adding statements, descriptions and labels):

  1. English description: "article from Pauly-Wissowa’s RE, a comprehensive encyclopedia on classical antiquity";
  2. German description: "Artikel aus Paulys Realenzyklopädie der klassischen Altertumswissenschaft (Pauly-Wissowa)"
  3. instance of (P31) encyclopedic article (Q17329259)
  4. published in (P1433) Paulys Realenzyklopädie der klassischen Altertumswissenschaft (Q1138524)
  5. For cross references (not full articles), it would be better to add instance of (P31) cross-reference (Q1302249)
  6. main subject (P921) will be the most important qualifier, but it may be difficult to fill this automatically.

So far, this is only a ToDo list. Jonathan Groß (talk) 12:28, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

Done so far:

  1. instance of (P31) encyclopedic article (Q17329259) for all articles. Replaced with instance of (P31) cross-reference (Q1302249) for cross-references.
  2. published in (P1433) Paulys Realenzyklopädie der klassischen Altertumswissenschaft (Q1138524) for all articles and cross-references.

Left to do:

  1. Adding labels.
  2. Adding author (P50) according to the authors’ categories.
  3. Figuring out how to read the RE template to give volume and column numbers.
  4. Adding volume (P478) and page(s) (P304) (or section, verse, paragraph, or clause (P958)?) to published in (P1433).
  5. main subject (P921) ... maybe with Wikipedia articles from the RE template?

To keep up with article creation, I'll keep on frequently:

  1. [1] Creating new items for entries in cross-reference and article categories.
  2. [2] Adding published in (P1433) Paulys Realenzyklopädie der klassischen Altertumswissenschaft (Q1138524) to all lemmata (articles and cross-references)
  3. [3] Adding instance of (P31) cross-reference (Q1302249) to cross-references
  4. [4] Adding instance of (P31) encyclopedic article (Q17329259) to articles

Members of the Hellenic Philological Society of ConstantinopleEdit

I started adding Property:P463 (member of) with qualifiers "start time" and "as" (do qualify the type of membership, e.g. honorary members, corresponding members, ordinary members) to members of the Hellenic Philological Society of Constantinople (1861–1922). They are listed in the front matter of the society’s journal.

Most, but not all volumes of the journal are available online. Digitised volumes are listed on the Greek Wikisource page.

As most of the ordinary and corresponding members are not eligible for Wikipedia articles, I focus on the society’s honorary members who are highranking Ottoman civil servants, Greek Orthodox patriarchs, foreign diplomats and scientists, sometimes bankers and physicians from Constantinople.

The members’ names are given only by surname and initial, but in combination with the stated profession and workplace, identification is possible. Slight errors in the year of membership are to be expected (especially if the volume was published a long time after the election of a member). The main problem with identifying the members is that the lists in the journal have a lot of spelling errors, mainly with foreign names written in Latin letters.

For example: Conrad Bursian is listed in vol. 6 (1871/72) as Boursion C., Καθηγ. τοῦ Πανεπιστ. Βιέννης (= University of Vienna, which is an error for Jena). In the next volume, the surname is "corrected" to Boursian and the university is given as Ἰένη. More examples: Wilhelm Henzen is listed in vol. 6 (1871/72) as Hengen W., which has never been corrected; Hermann Sauppe is listed as "Hermann Sauppre" (under letter H) in vol. 10 (1875/76). Friedrich August Eckstein is listed as "Eckstreïz" in vol. 14 (1878/79).

Progress so far:

  •   OK 2015-01-30 checked volumes 6 and 10 for members.
  •   OK 2015-02-04 checked volumes 3, 7–9 and 11–12 for members.
  •   OK 2015-02-06 checked volume 14 for members.
  •   OK 2015-02-10 checked volumes 16–20 for members. Total number now: 330

Sodales Academiae Latinitati FovendaeEdit

The members of the Academiae Latinitati Fovendae are Latin scholars from all over the world. Many of them have articles on lawiki, some also on other Wikipedias. The ALF has a list of its members as of 2012-04-20. This list also has the names of the fouding members (1967-04-18) along with the people who were declared "founding members" in 1983, i.e. members who were elected into the ALF until 1983.
