Approaches to Greek and Latin Language, Literature and History: Κατὰ σχολήν

This peer-reviewed collection of essays provides an account of several current foci of research in Classics. It gathers fifteen contributions covering subjects such as Greek and Latin papyrology and epigraphy. It also includes approaches to various key literary texts, from Homer to post-classical Humanists, in addition to chapters on navigation, coinage, and sculpture.

This book represents a useful research tool for a wide range of scholars in Greek, Latin and Ancient History, as well as an up-to-date source for any classicist.

She is currently affiliated with the Spanish National Research Council, and her main interests lie in Greek linguistics and lexicography.

Sara Macías Otero holds a PhD in Classical Philology with a specialization in Greek Religion and Tragedy. She has published on Euripides and mystery religions, especially Orphism and Dionysism. Since 2007, she has been affiliated with the Spanish National Research Council, where she collaborates on the Greek-Spanish Dictionary (DGE) project.

“For those interested in any of the cases studies, the chapters in this book will provide comprehensive summaries of material and good food for thought. There are some chapters (e.g. Blanco Romero, Piedrabuena, Soria Molina) where innovative methods of analysis bring out new and potentially new ways of thinking about the ancient world.”
