Brill's Companion to Ancient Greek Scholarship aims at providing a reference work in the field of ancient Greek and Byzantine scholarship and grammar, thus encompassing the broad and multifaceted 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, and 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.Table of ContentsVOLUME 1PrefacePart 1- History1 Greek Scholarship from its Beginnings to Alexandria, Anna Novokhatko2 Hellenistic Scholarship, Fausto Montana3 Philology and Grammar in the Imperial Era and Late Antiquity: An Historical and Systematic Outline, Stephanos Matthaios4 Scholarship in the Byzantine Empire (529-1453), Filippomaria PontaniPart 2- Disciplinary Profiles1 The Sources of our Knowledge of Ancient Scholarship, Eleanor Dickey2 Definitions of Grammar, Alfons Wouters - Pierre Swiggers3 Typology of Philological Writings, Markus Dubischar4 Typology of Grammatical Treatises, Stefano Valente5 Typology of Lexicographical Works, Renzo TosiVOLUME 2Part 3 - Between Theory and PracticeSection 3.1 - Scholarship1 Ekdosis.
