The classical tradition by Anthony Grafton( Book )
16 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 1,142 libraries worldwide
"In this volume, some five hundred articles by a wide range of scholars investigate the afterlife of this rich heritage in the fields of literature, philosophy, art, architecture, history, politics, religion, and science. Arranged alphabetically from Academy to Zoology, the essays--designed and written to serve scholars, students, and the general reader alike--show how the Classical tradition has shaped human endeavors from art to government, mathematics to medicine, drama to urban planning, legal theory to popular culture."--Jacket

Doubting Thomas by Glenn W Most( Book )
22 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 559 libraries worldwide
A fresh look at the Gospel of John reveals how little we may really understand about this most perplexing of biblical figures, and how much we might learn from the strange twists and turns Thomas's story has taken over time. From the New Testament, Most traces Thomas's permutations through the centuries: as Gnostic saint, missionary to India, paragon of Christian orthodoxy, hero of skepticism, and negative example of doubt, blasphemy, stupidity, and violence. Rife with paradoxes and tensions, these creative transformations at the hands of storytellers, theologians, and artists tell us a great deal about the complex relations between texts and their interpretations--and about faith, love, personal identity, the body, and twins, among other matters.--From publisher description

"This volume brings together a number of significant new studies, by authors from different disciplines and countries, on literary, philosophical, medical, and political aspects of ancient anger from Homer until the Roman imperial period. It studies some of the most important ancient sources and provides a paradigmatic selection of approaches to them, and should stimulate further research on this important subject in a number of fields."--Jacket

Studies on the Derveni papyrus ( Book )
15 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 293 libraries worldwide
"The Derveni Papyrus is one of the most interesting new texts from the ancient Greek world to have been discovered in this century. It is the oldest literary papyrus ever found, and one of the very few from Greece itself. The eschatological doctrines and an allegorical commentary on an Orphic theogony in terms of Presocratic physics which it contains make it a uniquely important document for the history of ancient Greek religion, philosophy, and literary criticism." "This book is the first to have been published on the text. It includes a full and reliable translation of the Papyrus together with a range of articles by leading European and American classicists who are internationally recognized experts in Greek religion and philosophy."--Jacket

The infamous emperor Caligula ruled Rome from A.D. 37 to 41 as a tyrant who ultimately became a monster. An exceptionally smart and cruelly witty man, Caligula made his contemporaries worship him as a god. He drank pearls dissolved in vinegar and ate food covered in gold leaf. He forced men and women of high rank to have sex with him, turned part of his palace into a brothel, and committed incest with his sisters. He wanted to make his horse a consul.
