The Cambridge Dictionary of Classical Civilization

The Cambridge Dictionary of Classical Civilization

Graham Shipley John Vanderspoel Lin Foxhall David Mattingly
4.3/5 (3 ratings)
Few historical epochs have influenced the development of civilization to the extent that those of ancient Greece and Rome have. This Guide, with over 1700 entries and 500 illustrations, is a key reference work on both, covering all the main branches of ancient literature, art and institutions. In addition, it explores traditionally neglected areas such as dress, housing, minority groups and social relations. Ranging from post-Bronze Age Greece to the later Roman Empire, it surveys not only ancient Greece and Rome, but discusses those cultures with which Greeks and Romans exchanged information and culture as well as the remote peoples with whom they were in contact . Graham Shipley is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London, and chair of the Council of University Classical Departments as well as the Sparta and Laconia Committee of the British School of Athens. His publications include A History of Samos and The Greek World after Alexander. John Vanderspoel is Professor of Late Antiquity at the University of Calgary, where he was initially appointed in 1985. His publications include Themistius and the Imperial Court and numerous journal articles and chapters on Roman history, intellectual and religious developments in the Roman imperial period and Roman Britain. David Mattingly is a Fellow of the British Academy and Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London. His publications include monographs on Tripolitania and An Atlas of Roman Britain ; edited volumes including Economies beyond Agriculture in the Classical World , Life, Death and Entertainment in the Roman World , and Dialogues in Roman Imperialism . Lin Foxhall is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London. Her publications include co-edited volumes on masculinity in the ancient world , on ancient law , and the ancient economy as well as many journal articles and chapters on Greek social relations, gender, agriculture, field survey and economy.
