Mary Ebbott Profiled in Holy Cross Magazine’s Fall Issue

November 1st, 2013 by 

Mary ebbott has made a name for herself-and Holy Cross-by uncovering new understandings and interpretations of some of the world’s oldest stories. By studying the earliest existing version of the ancient Greek epic poem, Homer’s Iliad, she provides fresh insights that enrich scholars around the globe.

Her roots in the project are broad and deep. She is the co-editor of the Homer Multitext project, supported by the Center for Hellenic Studies at Harvard University, and she serves as executive editor at the Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, D.C. She and collaborator Casey Dué of the University of Houston have been awarded a three-year grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create a digital edition of the oldest complete existing manuscript of the Iliad, known as the Venetus A. Their goal is to publish its digital edition by 2016, working with a text that preserves centuries of scholarship.
