This 2022 publication by Jackie Elliott discusses the earliest Roman poetry we can trace, which dates to the late third and second centuries B.C.E. With the exception of Roman comedy, all poetry written at Rome during this period is today fragmentary and available to us only via quotations or references in later ancient authors. Early Latin Poetry describes the surviving record of third and second-century Roman epic, 'serious' drama, and satire, and addresses the methodological problems of engaging with these remains.
This volume, edited by Kirk Ambrose, Griffin Murray and Margrete Syrstad Andås, examines the oldest and best-known of the Norwegian stave churches from a global perspective, considering how its art and architecture engaged international developments from across Europe, the Mediterranean, and Central Asia..

This volume, edited by Andrew Cain and Gregory Hays, collects studies by twenty-seven scholars in honor of the distinguished Latinist Danuta Shanzer, who is well-known for her contributions to late antique and medieval Latin.
