Ibn Fadlanin kertomus matkasta volganbolgaarien kuninkaan luo vuosina 921–922 on Bagdadin kalifille kirjoitettu virallinen raportti. Ibn Fadlan raportoi siitä, mitä itse on nähnyt, kuullut ja kokenut taivaltaessaan Persian kautta Buharaan ja sieltä edelleen turkkilaisalueiden läpi Volgan mutkaan.

The 24th International Congress of Papyrology was held at the University of Helsinki from August 1 to 7, 2004. Of some 150 papers read at the congress, 87 are published in these Proceedings. The contributions are only slightly edited due to the fact that the most time consuming part of the process was to solve modern technological problems involved in, e.g., various Greek, Coptic, Hebrew, Demotic, etc. fonts. As this is a conference volume, it was found difficult to restrict the publication of the written communications which followed the given guidelines for contributions. Printed Pages: 547.

Muinaisessa maailmassa välimatka kahden silloisen merkittävän korkeakulttuurin, Intian ja antiikin Kreikan, välillä oli kauan lähes ylittämätön. Ennen Aleksanteri Suuren sotaretkeä kreikkalaisten tiedot Intiasta rajoittuivat melkein yksinomaan toisen käden lähteisiin, joiden luotettavuus oli jokseenkin kyseenalainen. Väitöskirjassaan Klaus Karttunen tutkii Intian ja sen kulttuurin esiintymistä varhaisessa kreikkalaisessa kirjallisuudessa. Karttusen mukaan Herodotoksen, Ktesiaan, Aristoteleen ja muiden niukat maininnat ovat monessa suhteessa tutkimisen arvoisia. Jo nämä varhais... View more info

In the 1840s the Finnish Orientalist Georg August Wallin travelled in the Middle East, where he collected material on Arabic dialects.

A special feature of Gyal's style of writing is that he wrote using many styles: part of his poetry uses more traditional structural and metric forms and part of it is written in modern fr...
