Most widely held works by Glenn W Most
The classical tradition by Anthony Grafton( Book )
18 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 1,114 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
Theogony ; Works and days ; Shield by Hesiod( Archival Material )
24 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 723 libraries worldwide
Hesiod describes himself as a Boeotian shepherd who heard the Muses call upon him to sing about the gods. His exact dates are unknown, but he has often been considered a younger contemporary of Homer
Doubting Thomas by Glenn W Most( Book )
19 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 553 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."--BOOK JACKET
Studies on the Derveni papyrus ( Book )
15 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 283 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

Revealing Timpanaro's extraordinary talent as a textual critic and world-class scholar, this book will be indispensable to classicists, textual critics, biblical scholars, historians of science, and literary theorists."--Jacket

Caligula : a biography by Aloys Winterling( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
This biography tells a different story of the well-known emperor. In a deft account written for a general audience, Aloys Winterling opens a new perspective on the man and his times. Basing Caligula on a thoroughly new assessment of the ancient sources, he sets the emperor's story into the context of the political system and the changing relations between the Senate and the emperor during Caligula's time and finds a new rationality explaining his notorious brutality. --Book Jacket
