In the post-Enlightenment world, philosophy and religion have come to occupy different, even opposed, domains. But how were they related before this? What were the commonalities and dissimilarities between them? Did they already contain the seeds of their later division – or do they still share enough in common to allow meaningful conversation between them?

This new Brill series “Ancient Philosophy & Religion” provides an interdisciplinary platform for monographs, edited volumes and commentaries on this issue. It is edited by two leading scholars in the fields it brings together, George Boys-Stones (Ancient Philosophy) and George van Kooten (New Testament Studies), and is supported by an editorial board whose members are known for their work in the area. It invites scholars of ancient philosophy, Classics, early Judaism, ancient Judaism, New Testament & early Christianity, and all other relevant fields, to showcase their research on ancient philosophy and religion and to contribute to the debate.

The series’ subject matter is symbolized by its icon, used by courtesy and permission of the New Acropolis Museum in Athens. It represents a dialogue between philosophers, as shown on one of the reliefs of the funeral sacrificial table (mensa) from the “House of Proclus” on the Southern slope of the Acropolis at Athens, excavated in 1955. Dating from 350-325 BC, the reliefs of the mensa depict, after the lamentation and the farewell, the posthumous encounter of the deceased with the philosophers (1950 NAM 90).

The editors very much welcome proposals for monographs, edited volumes and even commentaries on relevant texts.

This strand of Brill Research Perspectives addresses important themes connected with the reworking of material inherited from classical antiquity, primarily the Latin language and Latin writing conventions, but also the creative adaptation of classical traditions in other languages and media. Contributions by leading scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds will provide up-to-date overviews on the context, key texts, controversial questions, existing scholarship and avenues for further research concerning particular themes. These surveys are designed to give advanced students and scholars new to this particular area an idea of the sources, approaches and existing research, sketching scholarly history and facilitating further work.
Brill’s Companions to Classical Studies is a leading series providing graduate-level synthesis of debate and the state of scholarship on key authors and subjects from Antiquity. Each volume contains an up-to-date general bibliography. Volumes published have covered authors such as Ovid, Herodotus, Cicero, Callimachus, Thucydides, Sophocles and Seneca, and themes such as Ancient Macedon, Ancient Greek Scholarship, Hellenistic Epigram, and Hellenistic Astronomy. Forthcoming titles include Euripides, Cassius Dio, and Theocritus.

The most successful Companion volumes focus on authors, genres or themes on whom or on which there has been recent scholarly attention that has provoked new perspectives and new questions on which there is ample scope for debate. Ideally, Companions look backwards at a history of scholarship that might include the very emergence of a field, and forwards to future questions and lines of enquiry. Successful Companions regularly raise explicit questions about the boundaries of genres or themes, but it is hard to put together a coherent volume on a field that is as yet poorly defined.

The aim of a Companion is not to be exhaustive, but to give a lively sense of current debates, and to encourage participation in future debates. Editors should commission and curate articles that offer the target, graduate-level audience insight into the most pertinent questions that are and should be asked about the author, genre or theme on which the volume is focused. Editors should frame the volume with an introduction and sections that make these questions explicit, and they should make every effort to ensure that individual essays are participating in conversations that are shared across the volume. It is therefore important to insert cross-references where articles complement each other or where they disagree with one another.

This book series is designed to offer texts and editions, with commentary and comment, of important sources for the study of the New Testament and its world. Primary sources are envisioned as a mainstay of the series, in which documents that enlighten and support New Testament study are published in definitive, accessible and informative editions, often with supporting commentary. Collections of essays and monographs, that focus upon these types of important sources and advance the scholarly discussion, are also welcome.

The series has published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.
