Excerpt: Ogham (English pronunciation: or; Old Irish: , pronounced, Modern Irish or ) is an Early Medieval alphabet used primarily to write the Old Irish language, and occasionally the Brythonic language. Ogham is sometimes referred to as the "Celtic Tree Alphabet," based on a High Medieval Briatharogam tradition ascribing names of trees to the individual letters. There are roughly 400 surviving ogham inscriptions on stone monuments throughout Ireland and western Britain, the bulk of them are in the south of Ireland, in Counties Kerry, Cork and Waterford. The largest number outside of Ireland is in Pembrokeshire in Wales. The remainder are mostly in south-eastern Ireland, Scotland, the Isle of Man, and England around the Devon/Cornwall border. The vast majority of the inscriptions consist of personal names. The etymology of the word ogam or ogham remains unclear. One possible origin is from the Irish og-uaim - 'point-seam', referring to the seam made by the point of a sharp weapon. Aramaic 8 c. BCE Brahmic abugidas Hebrew 3 c. BCEThaana 4 c. BCEPahlavi 3 c.

Book Summary:

Die Geschichtlichen Hilfswissenschaften sind das unverzichtbare Werkzeug des Historikers. Der vorliegende Band versammelt deshalb 50 Beitrage renommierter Historiker und Hilfswissenschaftler, die sich unterschiedlichen Aspekten der Arbeit an den Quellen widmen. Schwerpunkte liegen dabei auf den Inschriften und den Urkunden. Die Inschriften des Mittelalters und der Fruhen Neuzeit sind eine Quellengattung, deren Aussagekraft fur die historischen Wissenschaften erst in den letzten Jahrzehnten deutlich geworden ist. Aber auch die Traditionswissenschaft Diplomatik gibt mit ihren Forschungen der Mediavistik immer wieder neue Impulse. Die Beitrage enthalten sowohl Editionen von bislang unbekannten Stucken als auch neue Einordnungen schon langer bekannter Quellen. Der Band beruhrt aber auch weitere Quellenarten, die Themen der Geschichtlichen Hilfswissenschaften sind: Munzen, Bilder, Handschriften, Siegel, Verwandtschaftsbeziehungen. Er stellt Einzelfunde und Analysen vor, die teilweise liebgewordene Forschungsmeinungen in Frage stellen. Auch methodische Beitrage z. B. zur Besonderheit historischer Texte fur die Informatik, und aus der Beschaftigung mit den Quellen abgeleitete Studien zur Geschichte der Ottonen und der Staufer zeigen die Bandbreite aktueller Forschungen aus dem Bereich der Geschichtlichen Hilfswissenschaften. Die wissenschaftshistorische Reflexion weiterer Beitrage erganzt den Sammelband, der aus vielen einzelnen Steinen ein schillerndes Mosaik aktueller hilfswissenschaftlicher Forschung macht.
