Short Description

The annual “Classica Cracoviensia” was established in 1995 as the initiative of the then director of the Institute of Classical Philology of the Jagiellonian University, professor doctor reader Stanisław Stabryła. Starting from 1996, the function of the scientific editor has been continuously held by professor doctor reader Jerzy Styka. From the very beginning “Classica Cracoviensia” has been planned as a forum for scientific cooperation between the Institute of Classical Philology of the Jagiellonian University and European university centres developing studies of the antique Greek and Roman culture in its various forms – literary as well as socio-political, philosophical, religious, legal, artistic and obviously receptive – of influence on the modern European culture. Periodically organised conferences, collectively undertaken research projects, guest lectures, initiated new publishing series – these are a few examples of this cooperation, which has brought a significant contribution to the development of the studies of the Greek and Roman antiquity, but in the same degree brings people together and has its individual aspect in the work of unifying Europe. Through the presentation of research on various forms of the Greek and Roman culture, we are trying to reveal the processes which had shaped this culture, the complexity of civilizational transformation which had been taking place within it, we are trying to accentuate its universal character and the inspirational role in shaping of modern Europe. The assumed, very broad formula of this periodical supports intercultural and interdisciplinary research, which allows for a multifaceted and in-depth presentation of cultural phenomena and present in the antique world dialogue between cultures, teaches the respect for otherness and versatility of research methods, provides arguments for defending the heritage of antiquity in the modern world. “Classica Cracoviensia” is aimed mainly for the people of science as it serves the modern scientific progress and a broad exchange of opinions in the subject of the Greek and Roman antiquity. It is reflected in the linguistic form of the periodical, in which texts are published in congress languages, namely English, German, French and Italian (occasionally in Polish in case of issues in honorem alicuius, but even then always with a detailed summary in another language), commonly used in disciplines referring to antiquity. The next group of readers are the students of antique studies and everyone interested in the in-depth knowledge of the antique Greek and Roman culture. “Classica Cracoviensia” has already found its place in the scene of European scientific periodicals and its subsequent issues can be found in many university libraries of Europe and North America.
