Synopsis:

Sir John Edwin Sandys' three-volume work on the history of classical scholarship remains unchallenged. Nothing like it in scale or scope has been published since it first appeared a century ago. Ranging from 600 BC to the modern times, Sandys includes material on all aspects of classical scholarship - history, archaeology, philosophy, literature, religion, politics -- as well as providing accounts of the principal figures who helped determine the course of classical scholarship through the ages. Beginning in the Athenian age Sandys traces the growth of scholarship in Alexandrian and Roman times, through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to the study of the Classics in Europe and the USA up to the end of the nineteenth century. Together the three volumes form not just a history of classical scholarship but what is in essence an intellectual history of Europe over twenty-five centuries. This edition contains a new Introduction from one of the world's leading classical scholars, Christopher Stray, providing valuable contextual, bibliographical and biographical detail. This unrivalled edition will not only be welcomed by all with an interest in the Classics: it will be a rich source of detail for scholars of the history and philosophy of European thought.

About the Author:

Sir John Edwin Sandys (1844-1922) was one of the outstanding classical scholars of his generation. A Fellow of St Johns College, Orator Emeritus at Cambridge University, and Lane Lecturer at Harvard University (1905), he received honorary degrees from the universities of Oxford, Dublin, Edinburgh and Athens. He was President of the Philological Society and President of the Classical Society. Among his notable works are A Dictionary of Classical Antiquities, Mythology, Religion, Literature, and Art (1891), The Harvard Lectures on the Revival of Learning (1905), Introduction to Latin Epigraphy, and (as supervising editor) A Companion to Classical Studies (1913). He remains best known, however, for the History of Classical Scholarship. He received his knighthood in 1911.
