2010 ed. A comprehensive overview of the major cultures of the classical Mediterranean world--Greek, Hellenistic, and Roman--from the Bronze Age to the fifth century CE. It also covers the legacy of the classical world and its interpretation and influence in subsequent centuries.
The goal of the series "is to enrich the traditional historical study of 'kings and battles' with a resource that promotes understanding of daily life and the cultural institutions that affect people's beliefs and behaviors."
Aims at collecting, recording, documenting, presenting and promoting the historical data that testify to the presence of Hellenic culture throughout time and space. Includes entries that concern geographical-cultural areas lying beyond the borders of the Hellenic nation-state including Asia Minor, the Blac Sea region, and Constantinople
This Encyclopedia is derived from the more broadly focused Encyclopedia of Greece and the Hellenic Tradition, the highly praised two-volume work. Newly edited by Nigel Wilson, this single-volume reference provides a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the political, cultural, and social life of the people and to the places, ideas, periods, and events that defined ancient Greece.
