RECEPTION OF GREEK LITERATURE 300 BC-AD 800: TRADITIONS OF THE FRAGMENT

A Classics Faculty Research Project funded by the Leverhulme Trust and the AHRC

Director: Dr. D. Obbink
Researchers: Dr. J. Brusuelas, Paul Ellis, and Spiro Vranjes


The aim of the project is to correlate the reception of Greek literature in the period 300 BC-AD 800 with surviving ancient manuscripts and other fragmentary evidence and to develop new tools, techniques and parameters for flexible cataloguing, classifying, assembling and interpreting different types of primary evidence preserved in fragmentary form, in particular ancient literary texts on papyrus and parchment. The results of the research are published in collected volumes and other publications and in digital form on this website.
