ThALES up and running

ThALES is a new lectionary database giving scholars access to ancient and medieval Christian and Jewish lectionaries.

Nils H. Korsvoll and I are responsible for the Syriac lectionary manuscript Add 14686 of the British Library (one of the lectionaries that includes readings from 2 Baruch and 4 Ezra, of course!). As far as I know, this is the first published/publicly available edition of the list of readings of this particular lectionary manuscript.
