Reallexikon für Antike und Christentum
Researching the development of Christianity in the ancient world
Project of the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts since 1976
based at the University of Bonn, Dölger-Institute
Wanted: An Intelligent Index
historically grown project
wide variety of subjects
permanently evolving, yet fixed structure of existing articles
complexity of topics and thus text structure
Goal
how to provide “finding aids” to guide readers to the most relevant chapters on specific topics?
a prototype for a work environment
manage vocabulary
tagging fulltext
Ways of accessing the digital RAC
-
"how to eat"
reading
browsing
searching
"ingredients"
full text of encyclopedia articles
controlled vocabulary / concept scheme
"the menu"
comprehensive indexes
alphabetical
hierarchical
visualizations
"the star"
"the wallpaper"
searching
Conditions
very limited funding for the prototype
digitization and publication of the lexicon will be carried out by the publisher
no influence on variety, detail and semantics of the XML encoding
trade-off between complexity and feasibility
Draft: search interface and list of results
single concept with relations
Concept
SKOS-modelled controlled vocabulary = key words
highly interconnected to represent semantic relationships between key words within the limits of SKOS
tagging of articles, chapters and paragraphs
alphabetical index
hierarchical index
hierarchical index
Prototype
webbased environment
software for editing and maintaining controlled vocabulary (OpenSKOS)
webapplication to integrate key words with texts
OpenSKOS
web editor
subtree "Liturgie, Kult"
well-conceived API, lucene query syntax for retrieval, also allows PUT and DELTE interaction
Creating Concepts
starting points:
articles
associations
example 1: Sea
broader concept to specific seas: Mediterranean Sea, Caspian Sea, ...
relations:
Sea→Navigation, Sea →Boat, Sea →Sea Monster, ...
Dead Sea →Qumran → Qumranwritings →Ancient Jewish Literature →...
One way connections?
example 2: Essenes
relations:
Essenes → Qumran
Josephus → Essenes / Plinius → Essenes
overall structure:
which top concepts?
different perspectives
result:
many top concepts
flat hierarchy
Examples
Top Concepts
Archäologie
Geographie
Gesellschaft
Kult, Liturgie
Kultur
Literaturgeschichte
Mythologie
(Naturwissenschaft)
Person
Philosophie
Politik
Recht

Verwaltung
Wirtschaft
Tagging
