Hmmlorientalia by Adam McCollum

This rich blog by Adam McCollum features posts connected to his work as lead cataloguer of Eastern Christian Manuscripts at the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library at St. John’s University, Minnesota.  There are a number of interesting entries about manuscripts which he has examined, including observations about the field of Eastern Christian studies more generally (especially Armenian, Arabic, Ethiopic, and Syriac), which is literally centuries behind Classics with respect to cataloguing and editing.  One recent post contains a list of manuscript collections digitally photographed by the library (not all catalogued!), and available for study.  McCullom’s article in the current issue of the online journal Hugoye also discusses the ongoing work on Syriac manuscripts at HMML.
