A journal looking at the reception and traditions of Antiquity through time
Published since 2005 by the Équipe de Recherche sur la Réception de l’Antiquité: Sources, Mémoire, Enjeux (E.R.A.S.M.E, Toulouse II-Le Mirail), Anabases is an international, trans-disciplinary, comparative journal looking at the reception and traditions of Antiquity through time. The intercultural approach implies a transversal perspective in three registers of analysis: 1) between disciplines, like history, philosophy, literature, archaeology, and the political sciences; 2) between cultural regions around the Mediterranean, Europe, and the Near- and Middle-East; 3) between periods, from Antiquity to the present day. For the opening of the site, six issues are available online, including one in full text.
