This volume is part of the continuation of Felix Jacoby’s monumental collection of fragmentary Greek historiography. It contains new editions of the works On cities, On islands, Foundations, Names of peoples, Changes of names and Aitia. These works deal mainly with the early, often mythical, history of Greek cities and regions but also touch upon their later history. For the first time, all the texts have been provided with a translation and a comprehensive commentary, which contains many innovative interpretations. It also makes these difficult texts accessible to a non-specialist readership.
The Brill Encyclopedia of Early Christianity (BEEC) focuses on the history of early Christianity, covering texts, authors, ideas, and their reception. Its content is intended to bridge the gap between the fields of New Testament studies and patristics, connecting a number of related fields of study including Judaism, ancient history and philosophy, covering the whole period of early Christianity up to 600 CE.

The BEEC aims both to provide a critical review of the methods used in Early Christian Studies and also to update the history of scholarship.
The BEEC addresses a range of traditions, including iconographic, martyrological, ecclesiastical, and Christological traditions, as well as cultic phenomena, such as the veneration of saints. The history of the transmission of texts and the reception of early Christian writers are also addressed. The BEEC focuses on early Christianity from a historical perspective in order to uncover the lasting legacy of the authors and texts until the present day.
From Europe and America to the Middle East, North Africa and other non-European Jewish settlement areas, the Encyclopedia of Jewish History and Culture covers the recent history of the Jewish people from 1750 through the 1950s. Originally published in German as the Enzyklopädie jüdischer Geschichte und Kultur by J.B. Metzler Verlag (Stuttgart/Weimar) in 2011 the work includes approximately 800 entries that present the state of international research and reveal a complex portrait of Jewish life - illuminated by many maps and illustrations. Central themes convey information on topics such as autonomy, exile, emancipation, literature, liturgy, music, and science of Judaism. The encyclopedia provides knowledge in an overall context and offers academics and other interested readers new insights into Jewish history and culture. The work is an outstanding contribution to the understanding of Judaism and modernity.

The first volume of the English edition appeared in 2017 with subsequent volumes following in due course. The volumes may be purchased individually as they appear or as a set once all 7 are available. Both the German and the English editions will also be available online.
Das deutsche Martyrologium des 20. Jahrhunderts. 8., erweiterte und aktualisierte Auflage
Editor:
Das deutsche Martyrologium sammelt die Biografien katholischer Christen im 20. Jahrhundert, die um ihres Glaubens willen einen gewaltsamen Tod erlitten. Es handelt sich um widerständige Personen aus den Verfolgungen des Nationalsozialismus, des Kommunismus und der Missionsgebiete. Die größte Gruppe bilden die Männer und Frauen aus der Gegnerschaft zur NS-Ideologie. Die Personen stammten aus allen Regionen des Deutschen Reiches, waren Priester und Laien, Junge und Alte aus verschiedensten Berufen und Aufgaben. Mehr als 170 Fachleute aus dem In- und Ausland haben die etwa 1000 Lebensbilder gesammelt und mit einem Werk-, Quellen- und Literaturverzeichnis und, soweit möglich, einem Porträtfoto, versehen. Das zweibändige Werk bietet ein unverzichtbares Nachschlagewerk für Wissenschaft, Kirche und die interessierte Öffentlichkeit.
The Encyclopedia of Early Modern History offers four hundred years of history in one work. Experts from all over the world have joined in a presentation of the scholarship on the great era between the mid-fifteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries. The perspective is European. That does not mean, however, that the view on the rest of the world is blocked. On the contrary: the multifaceted interrelatedness of European and other cultures is scrutinized extensively.

The Encyclopedia of Early Modern History addresses major historical questions:
- which ideas, inventions, and events changed people’s lives?
- in which ways did living conditions change?
- how do political, social, and economic developments interlock?
- which major cultural currents have begun to become apparent?
- how did historical interpretation of certain phenomena change?

The individual articles are connected to one another as in a web of red threads. The reader who follows the threads will keep coming upon new and unexpected contexts and links.
