Salesian_sources_1_en.pdf


Covers selected works by Don Bosco categorised broadly into texts belonging to history, pedagogy, spirituality of Don Bosco

Translated from Fonti salesiane Italian original Fonti Salesiane prepared under the auspices of the Istituto Storico Salesiano

Compiled by

Aldo Giraudo Francesco Motto José Manuel Prellezo

English translation by: Julian Fox Conversion to TEI-conformant markup by: Julian Fox TEI (the Text Encoding Initiative) offers a way to enrich a digital text with metadata which can describe or interpret the text beyond the text itself. What you are looking at now is the text as a 'web page' but in fact, if you right-click on the page and choose 'view source' you do not see the underlying HTML but the underlying original XML with all of the metadata added according to TEI guidelines. The XML file can be copied or downloaded, giving one direct access to the underlying data. This approach will be useful for the scholar who uses XML-aware software (see below), in which case it would be better to download a pure XML version of this file here. This zip file also contains information on how to use BaseX, an open source way of searching and visualising an XML file.

To help the normal web user, some of the underlying metadata has been colour-coded. So, for example, anything that appears to be a technical term e.g. as employed by Don Bosco, is coloured blue. An example would be the term peacemaker, one of the roles he invented at the Oratory. A simple gloss (explanation of a term) or translation, also an addition to the text, is coloured olive. Any interpretive comment by the translator is coloured brown and usually placed in a block note form. The colour distinguishes it from other notes (originally footnotes by the compilers of 'Salesian Sources'). Citations which are traceable to a source are coloured teal or if they are biblically sourced, green. Brief summaries/abstracts/key ideas (topics) are coloured orange. But most importantly, especially if you wish to cite any part of the text, the original page reference numbers to the Italian print edition of the Fonti Salesiane are provided, off to the right hand side of the text. If you do not wish to see these page numbers interrupting the text you may choose to 'Hide page breaks' from the Toolbox.

Instead, it is possible to extract this data and much more besides, using software tools, online or locally. An excellent programme, open source, costing nothing and available for all platforms, is BaseX, which creates a database of the text and enables full search, xPath queries and the like. Even if the user does not know how to write queries, there are sufficient views in BaseX, including very fast full-text search (which includes the XML tags) to enable one to explore the enriched 'sources' text. Amongst the many TEI elements and attributes in use in this text are:

argument A prose description of the topics addressed by subdivisions of the text. Understand this as 'theme' or 'subject'. It is made visible in the web text as italicised TOPICS: bibl A bibliographic item. Not colour-coded. You would need a program like BaseX to separately list all bibliographic items. cit A citation is colour-coded teal. Biblical citations are green to separate them from other citations. date (and also dateline) Any date in any form. Not colour-coded. You would need a program like BaseX to separately list all date or dateline items. foreign A language other than that of the surrounding text. Will always be further specified by the attribute xml:id="it" (for example). Not colour-coded. You would need a program like BaseX to separately list all such items. gloss Meaning or definition of a term. Colour-coded olive. MsDesc (manuscript description) and msIdentifier A document descriptor and identifier. Not colour-coded. You would need a program like BaseX to separately list all such descriptors. persName for personal name or placeName for place A proper noun, often a surname, not colour-coded. You would need a program like BaseX to separately list all 'persName' items. note In the context of this English version of Salesian Sources, where a note is colour-coded brown, it is a translator's note. orgName Organization name. Could be further identified in the XML by attributes such as "salesian" or "eccles". Not colour-coded. You would need a program like BaseX to separately list all 'organization' elements. term Any kind of technical term, especially but not only as used by Don Bosco. Colour-coded 'blue.

There are other possibilities; inspecting the XML file would reveal them. But also helpful if one is working directly with the XML file are certain attributes like 'type' with a value such as 'salesian', or if one were to choose 'settlement' as the search element, a type value such as 'city, 'town' 'suburb', 'continent' would further specify the search. And so on. For further information on how TEI has been applied to Salesian Sources click here. If you wanted to know all 500 elements (and attributes), you would be best advised to go to the TEI online list. There is an associated file (only in xml format and not converted to html. It is called persons_sources.xml) which lists all individuals named by Don Bosco in Salesian Sources, along with a biography of these individuals. It is an ongoing work as yet incomplete, as there are hundreds of such individuals. The greatest benefit from this file can be gained from placing it in an xml databse (such as BaseX) and drawing from it there. Enjoy! There are unlimited scholarly possibilities ahead for you!
