Classical Studies

The collection

The Classical Studies collection, housed on the 9th floor of the Wells East Tower, supports the teaching and research of IU's Department of Classical Studies. The collection covers, for the most part at research level, Greek and Latin literature, language, culture, palaeography, epigraphy, textual criticism, mythology, and religion; the history of classical scholarship; patristics; classical archaeology; and ancient history. There is selected acquisition of Latin literature of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Patristics coverage is restricted to texts of the Church Fathers in Greek and Latin, and linguistic and textual studies. Simple translations are not regularly purchased unless considered outstanding, but dual language editions with commentary and notes are acquired.
