Brill’s Companion to Ancient Greek Scholarship surveys ancient Greek and Byzantine scholarship and grammar. Broad and multifaceted in scope, it emcompasses the philological and linguistic research activity during the entire Greek antiquity and the Middle Ages.

The first part of the volume offers a thorough historical overview of ancient scholarship, which covers the period from its very beginnings to the Byzantine era. The second part focuses on the disciplinary profile of ancient scholarship by investigating its main scientific topics. The third and final part presents the particular work of ancient scholars in various philological and linguistic matters. It also examines the place of scholarship and grammar from an interdisciplinary point of view, especially from their interrelation with rhetoric, philosophy, medicine, and nature sciences.

For further study of ancient Greek consider the Brill Greek Reference Collection (5 vols.).
