The Oxford Handbook of Greek and Roman Comedy
Michael Fontaine (Editor), Adele C. Scafuro (Editor)
The Oxford Handbook of Greek and Roman Comedy marks the first comprehensive introduction to and reference work for the unified study of ancient comedy. From the birth of comedy in Greece to its end in Rome, from the Hellenistic diffusion of performances after the death of Menander to its artistic, scholarly, and literary receptions in the later Roman Empire, no topic is neglected.
Olin Library is maintaining a list of resources for Classics.
The Philosophy of Augustine
Cornell is a center for the study of Augustine's philosophy. Our on-going study of his philosophical work is built around two collaborative projects: the annual Augustine Lectio and a 3-year international project with Universität Bonn in Germany.
