Semantic bible :-) (updated)ΒΆ

Tags: faith

This is going to be fun: Sean Boisen (updated the name) is busy using semantic web technologies for the bible. He's got a vision of a semantic new testament. Besides being personally interested by this, this is also nice professionally: it's real semantic web data. Data to test with. Needs a further look!

Update: Apparently I copy-pasted the wrong name from his site. (The name of the person who designed the template, not the author...). Thanks Sean for taking the effort to clear it up! From a first new testament names owl file I took the following snippet:

  {owl:Class rdf:ID="SonOfGod"}
    {rdfs:comment}Both Human and God{/rdfs:comment}
    {rdfs:label xml:lang="en"}Son of God{/rdfs:label}
    {rdfs:subClassOf rdf:resource="#God"/}
    {rdfs:subClassOf rdf:resource=""/}

I had to change the xml characters to { and } to keep my old weblog software happy. logo
