Edited by Anne-Marie Wittke

Ranging in time from the end of the Bronze Age to the dawn of the so-called historical period (12th-6th centuries BC), this compendium presents the first complete survey of the early history of all the cultures along the coasts of the Mediterranean. In addition to the Phoenicians, Greeks and Etruscans, these also include many other peoples, such as the Iberians, Ligurians, Thracians, Phrygians, Luwians, Aramaeans and Libyans. The volume brings together the knowledge gained from material, textual and pictorial sources in all disciplines working in this field, including Near Eastern, Phoenician, Carthaginian and biblical archaeology, Aegean and North African studies, Villanovan studies and Etruscology, Iberology, early Greek historiography and Dark Ages studies. As a whole, this period was characterized by the intermingling of cultures around the Mediterranean Rim, and the main focus of content is therefore on contacts, the transfer of culture and knowledge and key common themes, such as mobility, religion, resources, languages and writing. With indices and numerous tables and maps of Pauly quality.

New Pauly Online

Encyclopaedia of the Ancient World

Editor-in-Chief Hubert Cancik and Helmuth Schneider

New Pauly Online is an encyclopedia for the study of Greco-Roman culture and its influence on modern world history. It is a practical reference work for everyday use by both experts as well as by those new to the discipline. Clear, precise, accessible, New Pauly Online offers encyclopedia entries, numerous illustrations and plenty of survey maps and tables. All Latin and Greek quotations are also offered in translation.

New Pauly Online contains all content from Brill’s New Pauly (English, 20 volumes + 2 index volumes) as well as the original German version, Metzler’s Der Neue Pauly. Fifteen volumes (Antiquity, 1-15) are devoted to Greco-Roman antiquity. They 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 on the other, as well as ancient Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Five additional volumes (Classical Tradition, I-V) are concerned with the long and influential aftermath of antiquity and the continuous process of reinterpretation and reevaluation of the ancient heritage, including the history of classical scholarship.

A high academic standard combined with a contemporary approach and accessible presentation have made New Pauly Online an unrivaled modern reference work. An essential research tool for students and scholars in classical studies, ancient history and related fields such as Egyptology, Biblical Studies and Archaeology. New Pauly Online is a must-have addition for any library’s collection of online resources.
