Additional information
Most of the papers in this volume result from the conference „Quattuor Lustra” held in Tartu on 3–4 December 2010. With this event, the Department of Classical Philology of the University of Tartu and Morgenstern Society celebrated the 20th anniversary of the re-establishment of classical studies at the University of Tartu. The 21 papers are presented in more or less chronological order regarding the topics they focus on. The subjects pursued are quite diverse, from Hittite and Homeric etymology and lexicography all the way to social and political situation at the University of Tartu in the 19th century. In between we find notes on Greek epic, choral lyrics and tragedy, studies on authors from Late Antiquity (Philo, Philostratus, Eunapius, Claudian, Macrobius), ancient and Byzantine history, textual tradition of the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Humanism and Neo-Latin vocabulary.
