Brill’s New Pauly is the first lexicographic project that both differentiates between Greco-Roman antiquity itself and its subsequent images, and demonstrates the close connection between antiquity and its aftermath. Volumes 1 to 15 (
Antiquity) are devoted to Greco-Roman antiquity. Volumes I to V (
Classical Tradition) are uniquely concerned with the long and influential aftermath of the classical heritage.
Index Antiquity relates to the 15 volumes of
Brill’s New Pauly that deal with Antiquity.
Index The Classical Tradition, relates to the 5 volumes of
Brill’s New Pauly that deal with the Classical Tradition. Brill's New Pauly is also available as an online resource. For more information, see

Brill’s New Pauly fills the need for a comprehensive online guide to the Classical world and the Classical tradition. Topics are covered in depth with references to primary sources and relevant bibliography.
