Revista del Instituto de Historia Antigua Oriental "Dr. Abraham Rosenvasser"
El presente número de RIHAO aparece luego de un considerable tiempo desde la publi- cación del número anterior, situación que ha hecho necesario relanzar la revista bajo una nueva serie. El nuevo equipo de trabajo de la revista apunta, pues, en lo inmediato, a subsanar los graves problemas de periodicidad que la misma ha experimentado así como, fundamentalmente, a volver a poner al servicio de los investigadores de la historia antigua del Cercano Oriente de nuestro país la publicación o cial del Instituto dedicado a dicha especialidad en la Universidad de Buenos Aires. Más allá de las coyunturas económicas y los contextos institucionales que sin dudas afectan a toda producción académica, lograr la periodicidad de una publicación cientí ca –así lo creemos– expresa un compromiso serio con la necesidad de difusión de una especialidad. Pero, también hacen al carácter cientí co y académico de una publicación el mantenimiento de una actitud profesional junto con una variedad de aproximaciones inquisitivas y temáticas, así como la no menos necesaria contribución de especialistas del exterior. En ese senti- do, la revista se encuentra abierta a recibir contribuciones nacionales e internacionales que aborden todas las temáticas y especialidades del campo antiguo-oriental, desde miradas propias de la egiptología, la asiriología, la hititología, la iranología y los estu- dios bíblicos tradicionales, ancladas principalmente –aunque no exclusivamente– en aspectos lológicos y arqueológicos, hasta intervenciones derivadas intrínsecamente de los cambios y rupturas observados en las ciencias sociales y humanas desde los años ’60 del siglo pasado. Con este espíritu amplio e integrador, aunque sin soslayar en abso- luto el compromiso con la calidad disciplinar, reanudamos la publicación de RIHAO.

Ancient technical texts are very hard to work with. Not merely do you need the usual Greek and Latin language skills, and a feel for the customs of the ancient world. You also need a specialised understanding of the discipline in question. Not many of us have knowledge of alchemy, or farming methods, or architecture. So the manuals on these subjects tend to be understudied and few are translated into modern languages.
I’ve written a couple of posts about Project Hindsight. This is a project undertaken by people interested in astrology in modern times, but consists of translations of ancient astrological texts. Such an enterprise can only be valuable, and the collection of translations deserves to be more widely known. Most are out-of-print but can be obtained as PDFs.
But this week I learned that the principal translator, Robert C. Schmidt, has died. He was only 67. He was an independent scholar, and he did the sort of things we do here, so it is very much appropriate for us to commemorate him.
He dedicated his life to ancient astrology, and especially hellenistic astrology; to understand what it was, and translating the primary sources so that others could work. In most cases he prepared the first ever translation of the sources into a modern language. He self-published his translations, which inevitably means that they did not find their way into academic research libraries. This is unfortunate, and it means that they remain obscure.
The funeral home has a web-page with an obituary here, written by Bill Johnston, who also supplied me with some additional information.
Born on December 22, 1950, Robert C. Schmidt obtained a scholarship to study mathematical physics at M.I.T. But he chose instead to go to St John’s College in Annapolis as part of their “Great Books” programme to read philosophy. There he was a student of Jacob Klein, one of Heidegger’s students. But he also learned the importance of reading primary texts in the original language and “discovered his love of the Greek verb”. Instead of pursuing an academic career, he chose to become an independent scholar, and to translate ancient astrological texts.
He settled in Cumberland, in Maryland. To support himself he initially worked as a printer, and in a range of other blue-collar jobs, but by middle age he was well-enough known to support himself through his publications and recordings of lectures and seminars – presumably on the subject of astrology, although Mr Johnston does not say so.
A draft of one of his papers, The Problem of Astrology (2000), may be found online here. It repays reading by those seeking to understand what he did intellectually. At one point he says something which perhaps explains how a university-trained philosopher came to be interested in astrology. He asks what we actually mean by the word “astrology”?
Why the title “Metaphysics of Metaphysics?” [as a description of astrology] Now I chose that title very deliberately because, in my mind, metaphysics has two completely different meanings. My background being in the study of ancient and modern philosophy, when I heard the word metaphysics, I always understood it to mean the study of Being, as it was for the Greeks. It was a great surprise to me when I first went into a bookstore and looked for the metaphysical section expecting to find some new books on Aristotle, and found instead books on crystals, out-of-body experiences, meditation, occultism, and astrology. This was long before I was involved in the astrological world, by the way.
… There is a statement by a Neo-Platonist philosopher named Iamblichus in a strange book called On The Mysteries. In this book another neo-Platonist Porphyry is directing a number of questions about the Egyptian religion to an Egyptian priest.
In the course of the answering of these questions the priest says that the men who translated the Egyptian sacred writings into Greek— and these sacred writings included the their magical, alchemical, and astrological writings, all generally attributed to one of their sages names Hermes — the men who translated these sacred writings into Greek were men who were trained in Greek philosophy, presumably the philosophies of the Athenian Greeks Plato, Aristotle, and the Stoics.
Now, this is a very astonishing statement and it made a great impression on me.
Such are the chances of life.
Robert C. Schmidt died on December 6th, 2018. Mr Johnston writes:
A GoFundMe site has been set up on Ellen’s behalf to help with medical bills and funeral expenses at https://www.gofundme.com/support-robert-schmidt039s-medical-costs. We would like to give our sincere thanks to the many people who have contributed so far, and for the outpouring of condolences and expressions of appreciation for Bob and his invaluable contributions to the art and science of astrology through his remarkable research over the last two decades.
Few of us would find it possible to read an ancient astrological text with any enjoyment. Yet he evidently did. Most people who read such a text would find themselves baffled by the technical language. But he was not baffled. I do not myself possess any overview of the subject of Hellenistic Astrology; and evidently Mr Schmidt found the same, for he composed one. He made all these translations, and did so from hard, granite-like material in Greek and Latin. The world owes him a debt for so doing. Few professional academics have ever even attempted such a thing. He did not receive recognition or honour for what he did. But I suspect that little that has been written on astrology in the universities in the last 30 years will be half as useful or well-informed as his little series of self-published books.
Thank you, Mr Schmidt, for all your efforts. You sought truth in the heavens. May you find mercy and the real source of all heavenly truth on the Last Day. Requiescat in pace.

Digital archaeology is always in a state of becoming. How could it be otherwise? And so, I offer up to you what we’ve managed to put together for the Open Digital Archaeology Textbook Environment ODATE as a perpetual beta, never finished, always open to further refinement, expansion, pruning, growth. I hope that you will take and use it in the spirit in which it is offered – of collaboration, of working things through in public.
My ambition is for this text and its associated computational notebooks/binders to become the kernel from which many versions may grow. Use those parts that are useful for your teaching or learning. Recombine with other things you find to create a solution that fits your particular context. Fork a copy of the source on Github (and we also provide instructions on how to do that, and what it means) and improve it. Expand it. Make a pull request back to us to fold your changes into ODATE prime – we’ll update the author roll accordingly!
Some of the pieces are not quite complete yet, but I’d rather have this out in the world, growing, than sitting quietly on my machine waiting for the right word. The perfect is the enemy of the good, they say. We flag those pieces that could use some more work right away. You will find rough edges. Pick up some sandpaper, and join the fun.

Dipylon is a non profit organisation (NPO) for the study of the ancient topography and the cultural environment through interdisciplinary research on Archaeology, History, Informatics and Cartography.It focuses on the collection, organisation and dissemination of published archaeological material, archival evidence and cartographic data, using digital technology to enhance the available cultural resources, in cooperation with the competent bodies.The study of the topography of ancient Athens is at the center of the effort, with the ultimate goal of expanding the relevant research to further case studies in Greece.In this context, Dipylon develops research action, implements digital applications, organises lectures and training seminars, and co-ordinates publishing efforts.
Newly added to Orbis Biblicus et Orientalis, Series Archaeologica Online. There are 38volumes of this series now online open access.
