Open Access Journal: Κρητικά Χρονικά

Κρητικά Χρονικά - Kretika Chronika

Τα «Κρητικά Χρονικά», πρωτοπόρο επιστημονικό περιοδικό που εξέδιδε από το 1947 στο Ηράκλειο ο Ανδρέας Γ. Καλοκαιρινός, υπήρξαν επί δεκαετίες ένας από τους βασικούς μοχλούς της κρητολογικής έρευνας. Στις σελίδες τους παρουσιάσθηκαν εκατοντάδες πρωτότυπα άρθρα και μελέτες αρχαιολογικού, ιστορικού, λαογραφικού και φιλολογικού ενδιαφέροντος, με επίκεντρο την ιστορία και τον πολιτισμό της Κρήτης από την αρχαιότητα ως τις αρχές του 20ου αιώνα. Μεταξύ των συνεργατών του περιοδικού συγκαταλέγονται κορυφαίοι ερευνητές, όπως οι Νικόλαος Πλάτων, Μενέλαος Παρλαμάς, Στυλιανός Αλεξίου, Doro Levi, George Miles, Μανούσος Μανούσακας, Εμμανουήλ Κριαράς, Νικόλαος Παναγιωτάκης, Gareth Morgan, Σπύρος Μαρινάτος και δεκάδες άλλοι. Τεκμήριο της υψηλής επιστημονικής αξίας των «Κρητικών Χρονικών» αποτελεί, επιπλέον, η βράβευσή τους από την Ακαδημία Αθηνών το 1952.

Οι δεκατέσσερις πρώτοι τόμοι τους (Α΄ / 1947 - ΙΔ΄ / 1960) έχουν εδώ και πολλά χρόνια εξαντληθεί, χωρίς όμως το ενδιαφέρον των ερευνητών αλλά και ενός ευρύτερου κοινού για το περιεχόμενό τους να έχει ατονήσει. Για το λόγο αυτό η Εταιρία Κρητικών Ιστορικών Μελετών πρότεινε την ψηφιοποίησή τους, στο πλαίσιο του Προγράμματος «Κοινωνία της Πληροφορίας», ώστε τα 405 άρθρα που περιλαμβάνονται στους δυσεύρετους αυτούς τόμους να συνεχίσουν να είναι προσιτά σε κάθε ενδιαφερόμενο μέσω του διαδικτύου.
Kretika Chronika was a groundbreaking journal published in Heraklion from 1947 onwards by Andreas G. Kalokerinos. For many decades it was one of the primary catalysts for Cretan studies. Its pages hosted hundreds of original articles and studies in the fields of archaeology, history, folklore and literary scholarship, focused on the history and culture of Crete from ancient times to the early 20th century. Contributors included leading scholars such as Nikolaos Platon, Menelaos Parlamas, Stylianos Alexiou, Doro Levi, George Miles, Manousos Manousakas, Emmanouil Kriaras, Nikolaos Panagiotakis, Gareth Morgan and Spiros Marinatos, as well as dozens more. Proof of the journal’s high academic merit came in the form of an award by the Academy of Athens in 1952.

Although the first fourteen volumes of the Kretika Chronika (I/1947 – XIV/1960) have been out of print for many years, interest among researchers and a wider reading public in their contents has never waned. It was on those grounds that the Society of Cretan Historical Studies proposed that the rarer volumes be digitized as part of the “Information Society” programme, so that the 405 articles contained within them could be made available online to all interested parties.

Volume I - 1947
Volume ΙΙ - 1948
Volume III - 1949
Volume IV - 1950
Volume V - 1951
Volume VI - 1952
Volume VII - 1953
 
Volume VIII - 1954
Volume VIIII - 1955
Volume X - 1956
Volume XI - 1957
Volume XII - 1958
Volume XIII - 1959
Volume XIV - 1960

The W. F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research (AIAR) in Jerusalem in cooperation with the Center for Ancient Middle Eastern Landscapes (CAMEL) at the University of Chicago scanned and geo-referenced a series of topographical maps of Eastern Turkey and the lands of the broader Ottoman Empire with a grant from the US Department of Education TICFIA program. The bulk of the collection contains topographical maps compiled at the British Intelligence Division War Office in 1915 derived from map and survey data collected during multiple expeditions 1839-1906. The collection contains high resolution copies of the original maps held by AIAR, and geo-referenced versions can be requested by contacting dlir@caorc.org.
