(Continued as The Language of Classical Literature)
Amsterdam Studies in Classical Philology will continue as The Language of Classical Literature.

The Language of Classical Literature is a peer-reviewed series of studies on Greek and Latin language and literature that are informed by modern literary or linguistic theory (e.g. discourse linguistics, narratology, intertextuality, metapoetics). The series is open to monographs, edited volumes, and conference proceedings (provided they have a clear thematic coherence).
Brill Research Perspectives in Ancient History (RPAHS) is a peer-reviewed book series presenting review articles with commentary on the current state of the field of Ancient History. Articles draw on the latest interdisciplinary research in historical, cultural, political, social, and theoretical analysis to provide useful, up-to-date review and commentary for scholars, teachers, and students. Focused on Ancient History, the RPAHS has a broad scope in geographic and chronological terms encompassing the Greco-Roman world, including the Mediterranean basin and Europe, from the Bronze Age to Late Antiquity.
This collection includes all 23 volumes of the renowned series Dutch Monographs in Ancient History that were originally published in the Gieben series, between 1985 to 2002. Topics range from water supply in ancient Rome to ethnicity in Ptolemaic Egypt to shorthand writers in the Roman empire.
Brill's Annotated Bibliographies is a series offering a new set of bibliographical tools in the Classics. We welcome proposals for volumes in this series. The bibliographies would be up to 500 pp. in length and in English. Each volume should provide an exhaustive survey of the authoritative text editions, commentaries, translations, concordances, surveys and electronics tools, important or influential items of the secondary literature (indicating their position and impact in current debate). They should fill a need for scholars active in other (not necessarily adjacent) fields who require a quick and reliable access to the literature of the theme of the bibliography and would be of use to university teachers in preparing customised bibliographies for their students. Ideally, the bibliographies should also call attention to important Italian, German or French works, which are often overlooked by English-speaking students and even scholars.

The contents of most bibliographies will be as follows:
- a general introduction, outlining where possible the development of scholarship on the theme
- the bare facts: title, author, year of publication, type of work (article, book, etc.), size, publisher
- some description of the contents of the work
- an evaluation (in a minority of cases)
- a subject index (cf. Brisson's Plato bibliography in Lustrum)

This is the first comprehensive literary-historical online commentary on the works of Flavius Josephus in English, edited by Steve Mason (University of Groningen). At present, the online commentary is about 65% complete, comprising the Life, Against Apion, book 2 of the Judean War, and books 1-11 and 15 of the Judean Antiquities. Further volumes will continue to be added. Flavius Josephus, the first-century Jewish historian, is without a doubt the most important witness to ancient Judaism from the close of the biblical period to the aftermath of the destruction of the temple in 70 CE. His four surviving works – the Judean War, Judean Antiquities, Life, and Against Apion in thirty Greek volumes – provide the narrative structure for interpreting other, more fragmentary written sources and physical remains from this period. His descriptions of the Temple, the Judean countryside, Jewish-Roman relations and conflicts, and groups and institutions of ancient Judea have become indispensable for the student of early Judaism, of Classics, and of Christian origins alike. This wide-ranging and detailed work will prove invaluable to every serious reader of Josephus, providing a new translation and commentary, highlighting literary and historical connections.

Review Quotes: "…this series follows a format that is uncomplicated and therefore extremely user-friendly… The first two publications of the Brill Josephus Project have adequately satisfied the publisher's promise of being the first comprehensive literary-historical commentary on the works of Flavius Josephus in English… they have established a formidable, yet highly achievable standard for subsequent volumes in the series …an indispensable source of competing critical perspectives …correctly been termed an "indispensable source for all scholarly study of Judea from about 200 BCE to 75 CE"(Mason ix)." – Dennis Stoutenburg, in: Journal of Biblical Literature / Review of Biblical Literature "…diese Reihe sollten Benutzerinnen und Benutzer aus Judaistik, neu- und alttestamentlicher Wissenschaft und Alter Geschichte nicht nur in Bibliotheken nachschlagen, sondern m. E. für einen privaten Kauf ernstlich erwágen … Eine Arbeit an und mit Josephustexten wird auf Jahrzehnte ohne diesen Kommentar nicht mehr denkbar sein." – Marco Frenschkowski, in:Theologische Literaturzeitung, 2003 "The commentary is generally wide-ranging and very readable." – F.G. Downing, in: Journal for the Study of the Old Testament, 2002

Series Editor:
This series is dedicated to the development and promotion of linguistically informed study of the Bible in its original languages. Biblical studies has greatly benefited from modern theoretical and applied linguistics, but stands poised to benefit from further integration of the two fields of study. Most linguistics has studied contemporary languages, and attempts to apply linguistic methods to the study of ancient languages requires systematic re-assessment of their approaches. This series is designed to address such challenges, by providing a venue for linguistically based analysis of the languages of the Bible. As a result, monograph-length studies and collections of essays in the major areas of linguistics, such as syntax, semantics, pragmatics, discourse analysis and text linguistics, corpus linguistics, cognitive linguistics, comparative linguistics, and the like, will be encouraged, and any theoretical linguistic approach will be considered, both formal and functional. Primary consideration is given to the Greek of the New and Old Testaments and of other relevant ancient authors, but studies in Hebrew, Coptic, and other related languages will be entertained as appropriate.

The series has published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.
This commentary series aims to make Philo’s thought accessible to readers such as graduate students who are just beginning to read him, but also contains much material that will be of interest to specialists in Hellenistic Judaism, ancient philosophy and patristic literature.

The Proceedings of the Boston Area Colloquium in Ancient Philosophy are published annually. The volume brings together the papers and commentaries to reflect the dialogical spirit that characterizes the meetings of the Boston Area Colloquium. The authors are encouraged to revise their presentations in the light of discussion, and their papers are sent to external referees for peer review. Each volume presents the papers of the colloquia of the year in question with the responses given.
The Proceedings are also available in hardback and online.
