Hellenic Retrospective National Bibliography of the 19th century
Philip Elias – Popi Polemi
The “Hellenic Retrospective National Bibliography of the 19th” century has been elaborated by the ‘Vivliologiko’ Ergastiri (Workshop) (founded in 1983 by Philip Elias) in the recent decades, thus now permitting the supervision of the equivalent production, whilst surpassing the data it would have offered during its existence of a classic current national bibliography for the period in question. It serves as a comprehensive catalogue of the contents of libraries, precisely since it lists every copy of each published text to be found in dispersed libraries, whether in Greece or abroad, public or private. The Website www.benaki.gr/bibliology provides the entry in synopsis for the contents as well as the electronic address of the digital versions allowing direct access to the texts themselves.Two volumes have already circulated, covering the period from 1801 to 1832, a third being under preparation for the period 1833-1846 (era of King Othon).
Lexicon of Medieval Hellenic Folk Literature,
Vols. I – XIV,(1100 – 1669)
mmanuel G. Kriaras
The Lexicon of Medieval Hellenic Folk Literature (1100 – 1669) records and documents linguistic material of six centuries of the Greek language in its intermediate phase between Late Antiquity until the 17th century. Together with his colleagues, Emmanuel Kriaras has written fourteen volumes ( I – XIV), published between 1968 and 1997. The work was greeted with dozens of positive literary critiques, in Greece and abroad. The Epitome was digitalized and is available free of charge on the site www.greek-language.gr of the Gate to the Greek Language of the Greek Language Centre (KEG). In the Medieval Lexicon the instances of appearance of a word and all its definitions or sub-definitions are substantiated with quotations from the literary sources.
