Designed for students and scholars, the books explain what sources there are, what methodologies and approaches are appropriate in dealing with them, what issues arise and how they have been treated, and what room there is for disagreement.

“Brill’s Companions offer up-to-date surveys and scholarship on anything from Greek comedy – one of the unmissable volumes – to Aphrodite, Ovid, and the Greek and Latin pastoral. They are not only valuable for their authors’ individual approaches and chosen themes: they are backed by notes and bibliographies, which are among my first resorts when embarking on a new project or returning to a well-loved subject. Brill set the standard for classical Companions; they have yet to be surpassed by others.” - Robin Lane Fox, University of Oxford
“Brill’s Companions consist of not just one series but a set of series, dedicated to Classical Studies, Classical Reception, the Christian Tradition and other fields of research, including literature, history, and philosophy. Together they present a truly impressive number of highly useful reference works, which scholars can consult to quickly acquaint themselves with a particular subject. As a classical scholar I often use Brill's Companions to Classical Studies, with great satisfaction.” - Franco Montanari, University of Genoa
