Summary/Abstract: In the third volume of Essays on Antiquity, entitled The Hermeneutics of Wine, we focus our attention on the incessant presence of wine in the Mediterranean culture. In individual articles contained in the present publication, we discuss various aspects of wine and their relation to a specific place and time. The articles are interdisciplinary and they contribute to the reflection upon wine as the phenomenon that is more complex than literature. The Hermeneutics of Wine is at the same time a token of respect and sympathy for Professor Marian Szarmach and an expression of gratitude for his generosity that we experience in the Department of Classical Studies at the University of Silesia in Katowice, and elsewhere too.
