  Provenance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the archiving and the management of records proof of provenance is provided by the operation of control systems that document the history of records kept in an archive, including details of amendments made to them.
Scientific research is generally held to be of good provenance when it is documented in detail sufficient to allow reproducibility.
Provenance is a fundamental principle of archives, referring to the individual, group, or organization that created or received the items in a collection.

 Provenance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Provenance is a word that refers to the place and time where some artifact or other object originated.
Provenance is a particularly large concern when it comes to works of art; a documented provenance for a piece demonstrates that it is not a forgery; it was indeed made by the artist given credit for it.
Finds that remain in situ are always much more informative than those that have been removed by "collectors;" scientists can learn more about their origins from the environment in which a find was located, but the surrounding dirt and dust is seldom of interest to pot-hunters or treasure-seekers.

 Wikipedia:Provenance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Provenance has at least two aspects: source and time.
An article is a joint effort by the community that should stand as a whole without its parts being viewable as to their provenance.
Alternatively, source provenance could use a color-coding scheme: each of the top ten contributors to an article would be assigned a different color.

 The Art Institute of Chicago: Provenance Research Project
An important part of that research is the effort to establish the provenance (chain of ownership) for a work, from the moment it leaves the artist's studio to the present.
In conformity with the May 2001 AAM guidelines, this group of objects published on the website was expanded to include works that have a documented chain of ownership and hence no gaps in their provenance, but nevertheless were in continental Europe from 1933 to 1945, and also changed hands during that period.
Gaps in the provenance of a particular work, therefore, do not necessarily mean that it has been tainted by the events of the Nazi era.

Provenance research on these works, however, remains an ongoing project, and a priority, at the Museum.
In September 2003, the AAM launched a Nazi-Era Provenance Internet Portal (www.nepip.org), thus providing a general searchable registry of objects in U.S. museum collections that were or could have been in Continental Europe during the Nazi era (1933–1945).
Ongoing provenance research on the listed works is posted periodically, in installments, and the Museum welcomes any further information on the provenance of these collection works that users of this site may be able to provide.

Provenance is a fancy word that refers to an object's history, or who owned the object, when and where.
"Provenance is important because objects are almost never singular," says Michael Flanigan, a Baltimore dealer of antique American furniture.

 provenance research
Provenance information is rarely complete (especially in the case of objects of significant age) and it is often impossible to establish an unbroken history for an object, in spite of a researcher's dedication to the task.
Works that are investigated for possible Nazi-era provenance problems are those that were created before 1946 and acquired by the museum after 1932, that underwent a change of ownership between 1932 and 1946, and that were (or might reasonably be thought to have been) in continental Europe between those dates.

This behavior caused the rulers of the other 364 heavens to oppose the god of the Jews, and to send a savior, Jesus Christ, from the highest realm of the Father, to rescue the human beings who are struggling under the yoke of this jealous god (Irenaeus 1.24.4).
Since the realm of matter is the sole provenance of this spiteful god, Basilides finds nothing of value in it, and states that "[s]alvation belongs only to the soul; the body is by nature corruptible" (Irenaeus 1.24.5).
