Open Access Journal: The Denver Journal: An Online Review of Current Biblical and Theological Studies

[First posted in AWOL 22 February 2011. Updated 24 August 2016]

The Denver Journal: An Online Review of Current Biblical and Theological Studies

Welcome to Denver Journal. The purpose of the Denver Journal is to establish an online Evangelical review journal of biblical and theological studies edited and produced by the faculty of Denver Seminary for use by alumni and all who are interested in biblical and theological ministry and research.
Denver Journal is a review journal. It aims to include reviews of all recent and significant books and published media relating to the major fields of biblical and theological studies: Old Testament, New Testament, Church History, Systematic Theology, World Christianity, Pastoral Ministry and Evangelism, Counseling, Philosophy of Religion, Education Ministries and Administration, Homiletics and Speech, and Youth and Family Ministries.
Denver Journal will include reviews as well as review articles that might include essays on the present state of studies in a field or specific area of that field, annotated bibliographies, extensive reviews of a work of particular significance, and other longer items. The reviews themselves, divided according to the major fields of biblical and theological studies, will normally be 500-800 words in length. An additional section of book notes will include 100-200 word summaries and evaluations of books that are worthy of note but not necessarily deserving a full review in the journal.
Denver Journal is an Evangelical journal. Its choice of books and reviewers reflects the Evangelical commitment and interests of the seminary.
The journal is online. All contributions are written and edited electronically.

L'alimentazione nell'Italia Antica

L'alimentazione nell'Italia Antica

http://www.beniculturali.it/mibac/multimedia/MiBAC/minisiti/alimentazione/img/header.jpg

La storia dell'alimentazione italiana dalle origini al periodo classico

L’iniziativa si inserisce nell’ambito della grande rassegna espositiva “Cibi e sapori nell’Italia Antica”, organizzata e coordinata nel 2004 dalla Direzione Generale per i Beni Archeologici e dalla Direzione Generale per l’Innovazione Tecnologica e la Promozione del Ministero per i beni e le attività culturali, coinvolgendo ben 110 sedi museali distribuite sul territorio nazionale, per dare l’opportunità di ripercorrere a ritroso una Storia e una Tradizione su un tema culturale che fa parte della nostra vita quotidiana e per il quale è difficile non sentire un senso di “appartenenza”. L’evento mira a favorire, inoltre, un momento di riflessione sui simboli e i significati del nostro comportamento alimentare. L’uomo, infatti, si distingue dagli altri esseri viventi per la sua capacità di simbolizzare, e il cibo è “lo strumento simbolico per eccellenza”. Il comportamento alimentare umano, infatti, non si rivolge al mero soddisfacimento fisiologico del senso di fame, ma assolve invece una serie di funzioni sociali e culturali che rimandano proprio alla definizione del senso di identità del gruppo e della persona.

Cibo come Cultura, dunque, per non dimenticare che, se è vero che la cucina è un indicatore culturale e definisce il senso di appartenenza a questa o quella comunità, è vero pure che, essa è il primo spazio umano - privilegiato - dove più velocemente si eliminano le barriere tra i popoli, favorendo l’incontro - attraverso scambi vicendevoli - di conoscenze preziose che divengono parte integrante del patrimonio e della identità culturale di ogni civiltà. 

Il tema di grande attualità, viene affrontato in questa sede con l’intento di offrire un contributo, scientifico, specifico e significativo, al grande dibattito che si è animato intorno al Cibo e ai suoi linguaggi, perseguendo al contempo l’obiettivo di comunicarlo a un più vasto ed eterogeneo pubblico, nel rispetto, quindi, della legge n. 4 del 9 gennaio del 2004 “Disposizioni per favorire l’accesso dei soggetti disabili agli strumenti informatici”.

Do you need to add a new modern or historical name or name variant to a place resource in Pleiades? Here's how to do it. 
If you know the name (either historical or modern) of an ancient place in Pleiades, but see that it's not included in our dataset, you can easily add it and submit it for review and eventual publication. You should also add appropriate name resources to any new place resource that you are creating so that you can submit them as a set.

Concepts and Background

Pleiades stores geographical and historical information in four "information resources": places, names, locations, and connections. If you are not familiar with these terms and how they are used in Pleiades, you should first consult the short Conceptual Overview.
The editors have set out their expectations for the content of name resources in a section of the Editorial Guidelines. You should also consult it before starting to add name resources.

Step-by-step: How to add a new name resource

1. Login to Pleiades.

2. Navigate to the place resource to which you wish to add a name.

Add a name: Add

3. Scroll down the page to the bottom of the "Names" listing and select the "Add Name" button.

4. Pleiades creates a new name resource, assigns it to you, and automatically opens a form through which you can edit its contents. This new name resource begins life in "drafting" state, and is invisible to the public and other users (apart from the editorial college and site managers). Other contributors, when logged in, are able to see an entry for the resource (title and your name) in the Names listing on the parent place page, but they cannot see the contents of your draft. This level of visibility is intended to prevent duplication of effort by contributors. You may modify and save the new name resource multiple times until you are ready to submit it for review.

Add a name: Edit 
5. On the "Add Name" form use the component navigation tabs ("Default", etc.) together with the individual data entry fields and the "Save" button at the bottom of the page to record the modifications you wish to make. Please note editorial expectations and standards for names as outlined in the Editorial Guidelines document.
6. After the first time you save the form, you can open it again by selecting the "Edit" tab on the gray tertiary menu bar. It will now be titled "Edit Name" instead of "Add Name", but is otherwise identical.

Add a name: Submit 
7. When you are satisfied with the modifications you have made to the name resource, submit it for review by the editorial college by selected "State: Drafting" from the gray tertiary menu bar and then selecting "Submit for review" from the drop-down menu. 
8. If the editors have any questions or concerns about the content or format of your submitted name resource, they will contact you by email. If not, they will publish it. Upon publication of the name resource, your personal name will appear in the "Creators" section of the new name resource and in the "Contributors" section of the parent place resource. The contribution will also be reflected on the Pleiades Credits page.
Add a name: Retract 
9. If, after submitting the name resource, you realize that you have made a mistake or omitted to save a change, you can retract the submission and return the working copy to "drafting" state by selecting "State: Pending review" from the gray tertiary menu bar and then selecting "Retract" from the drop-down menu. This will permit you to make further changes. Retraction only works when the working copy is still in "Pending" state. If an editor has already published your changes, you will not be able to retract the resource. Instead, send an email to pleiades.admin@nyu.edu that includes the URI of the affected resource and explains the problem.
