Ancient anger perspectives from Homer to Galen by Susanna Morton Braund( file )
32 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 1,631 libraries worldwide
"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
Doubting Thomas by Glenn W Most( file )
19 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,557 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

Caligula a biography by Aloys Winterling( file )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 997 libraries worldwide
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. Torture and executions were the order of the day. Both modern and ancient interpretations have concluded from this alleged evidence that Caligul
Hesiod by Hesiod( Archival Material )

"Written in the late eighth century BC by Hesiod, one of the oldest known of Greek poets, Theogony and Works and Days represent the earliest account of the origin of the Greek gods, and an invaluable compendium of advice for leading a moral life, both offering unique insights into archaic Greek society ... This translation contains a general introduction, a translator's introduction, notes, and a glossary."--Publisher description

Studies on the Derveni papyrus ( Book )
15 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 335 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

6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 211 libraries worldwide
"This important work now appears in its first English translation. The Genesis of Lachmann's Method examines the origin, development, and validity of Lachmann's model as well as its association with Lachmann himself. It remains a fundamental work on the history and methods of editing texts, and Glenn W. Most's translation makes this seminal study available to an English-speaking audience. In addition to expanding Anglophone scholars' understanding of Greek and Latin texts prepared in modem times, the new translation also will help anyone who studies texts not prepared by their original authors
