This year's version of the seminar is an introduction to Greek papyrology; its ultimate aim is the development of the skills required to edit Greek texts on papyrus and related media. During the first two thirds of the course, we shall focus on reading facsimiles selected from nine important papyrological archives; at the same time, we shall prepare editions of unpublished papyri from Berkeley's excavations at Tebtunis. The final third of the semester will be devoted to workshopping these Tebtunis editions. Completion of the course enables one to apply for the Sixth Berkeley-Oxford Papyrology Seminar (May-June 2016 in Oxford).

Note: 
The fantasy of ascending to the heavens is found in many contexts in antiquity: mythological catasterism, apotheosis of the ruler, the philosopher's flight of the mind, the posthumous ascent of the soul, the skywards elevation of fame, the soaring flight of the poet. This course explores the religious, intellectual, aesthetic, and ideological meanings of journeys to the heavens in various authors, before turning to the post-classical world, in which ancient models compete and interact with the ascensions of the Bible and of Christian eschatology. The course will also look at images of ascent in Renaissance and baroque ceiling painting.
