The series is dedicated to the ever more important research of classical reception. A wide understanding of the term is chosen, ranging from the antiquity’s classical reception via historical and modern popular reception to the meta-level covered by the history of science and the history of ideas. The main fo cus is on the Classics and their related subjects. Given the necessary cross-over, all other reception studies are equa lly addressed. A complex and varied phenomenon such as classical reception, this is the fundamental underlying idea of the project, can only be understood by means of a broad knowledge of the sources, their tradition and the context of their reception.Thus, the series continues an approach which has previously been pursued successfully through various titles by Verlag Antike (listed below). The editors and the publisher are happy to receive your suggestions or book proposals.
