Classical and Ancient Near Eastern Studies

De Gruyter is one of the leading publishers in Ancient Studies, the disciplines devoted to the study of the cultures of the ancient Mediterranean and Egypt. It encompasses the study of the history (economic, social, political, intellectual), literature, material culture (art and archaeology), science and philosophy, and religion of these cultures. We publish all that libraries and scholars need: the “sources” (our text editions and inscription corpora), high-quality and very specialized scholarship (our book series and journals), and research tools/reference works (encyclopedias, handbooks, databases and bibliographies).
