This rich collection of essays by an international group of scholars explores commentaries in many different languages on ancient Latin and Greek texts. The commentaries discussed range from the ancient world to the twentieth century. Together, the chapters contribute to the dialogue between two vibrant and developing fields of study: the history of scholarship and the history of the book. The volume pays particular attention to individual commentaries, national traditions of commentary, the part played by commentaries in the reception of classical texts, and the role of printing and publishing. The material form of commentaries is also considered--including how they are advertised and their accompanying illustrations--as well as their role in education. Both academic texts and books written for schools are surveyed.

About the Author:


Christina S. Kraus is Thomas A. Thatcher Professor of Latin at Yale University.

Christopher Stray is Honorary Research Fellow in the Department of History and Classics at Swansea University.

Review:


"This is a book where one can comfortably dip into individual chapters, as it has no over-arching thesis, but covers a lot of territory and contains bits of the Higher Gossip. Nevertheless, readers will find themselves more aware of the form and content, premises
and method, and the great tradition it stands in, when they next reach for a commentary."--Religious Studies Review


"The volume as a whole offers much of value to those interested in thinking seriously about commentaries and their aims, purpose(s) and development...The copy editing is of decent quality...The dust jacket illustration (the stacks in the Main Hall of the Cincinnati Public Library) was an inspired choice, and one can only read with regret the further information that such a wondrous place was demolished in 1955." --Benjamin Millis, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
