tags. --> “Here is 1,400 years of human culture, all the texts that survive from one of the greatest civilizations human beings have ever built—and it can all fit in a bookcase or two. To capture all the fugitive texts of the ancient world, some of which survived the Dark Ages in just a single moldering copy in some monastic library, and turn them into affordable, clear, sturdy accurate books, is one of the greatest accomplishments of modern scholarship—and one of the most democratic.” —Adam Kirsch

In honor of the 100 th anniversary of the Loeb Classical Library, celebrated in 2011, Adam Kirsch wrote a three-part essay in the Barnes & Noble Review . Read parts one , two , and three .

And, in the pages of Buried History , G. H. R. Horsley, Professor of Classics at the University of New England in New South Wales, Australia, and a Loeb Classical Library translator, assessed the library’s achievements, innovations, and shifts in emphasis across its first hundred years.
