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.
