Databases \ Brill's New Pauly


An encyclopedia of the ancient Greek and Roman world.

Brill's New Pauly is the English edition of the authoritative German Der Neue Pauly.

The section on Antiquity ranges from the second millennium BC to early medieval Europe. Special emphasis is given to the interaction between Greco-Roman culture on the one hand, and Semitic, Celtic, Germanic, and Slavonic culture, and ancient Judaism, Christianity, and Islam on the other hand.

The section on the Classical Tradition is concerned with the long and influential aftermath of antiquity and the process of continuous reinterpretation and revaluation of the ancient heritage, including the history of classical scholarship.

Six supplements are also included:
1 Chronologies of the Ancient World - Names, Dates and Dynasties
2 Dictionary of Greek and Latin Authors and Texts
3 Historical Atlas of the Ancient World
4 The Reception of Myth and Mythology
5 The Reception of Classical Literature
6 History of Classical Scholarship : a biographical dictionary
