BRILL’S NEW PAULY is the English edition of the authoritative DER NEUE PAULY, published by Verlag J.B. Metzler since 1996. The encyclopaedic coverage and high academic standard of the work, the interdisciplinary and contemporary approach and clear and accessible presentation have made the NEW PAULY the unrivalled modern reference work for the ancient world.
Fifteen volumes (Antiquity, 1-15) of BRILL’S NEW PAULY are devoted to Greco-Roman antiquity and cover more than two thousand years of history, ranging 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.
Five volumes (Classical Tradition, I-V) are uniquely 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.

BRILL’S NEW PAULY presents the current state of traditional and new areas of research and brings together specialist knowledge from leading scholars from all over the world. Many entries are elucidated with maps and illustrations and the English edition will include updated bibliographic references.

'The authoritative New Pauly will be welcome in all collections supporting research in classical antiquity and the classical tradition ...Summing up: Essential. Academic collections.'
Choice, 2003.
'University libraries, and perhaps even departmental ones, will want to own the whole set. Even libraries with Neue Pauly should try to get New Pauly so that all undergraduates can be directed to it without hesitation; and I suspect that most of the rest of us will browse with the luxury of abandon we rarely enjoyed before.'
Roger Rees, The Classical Review, 2004.
'Brill's New Pauly will soon be accepted as the standard scholarly resource for information on Graeco-Roman antiquity, and both specialists and lay readers will use it with profit and delight.'
International Review of Biblical Studies, Volume 50 (2003/2004)
Brill’s New Pauly, an unsurpassed resource for concise and reliable information, should be a part of any library that serves students of the ancient world, including theology students and indeed the public in general.
Eckhard J. Schnabel, Bulletin for Biblical Research, 21.2 (2011)

Brill's New Pauly was awarded CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title in 2002.
