Eos C 2013 Special Edition

To mark the publication of the centennial volume of our journal we are delighted to offer our readers a fasciculus extra ordinem editus electronicus comprising twenty-five papers originally published in “Eos” in Polish and now translated into English. They span the period from 1904 to 1987, and they give a fairly representative sample of topics covered in our journal. One field has intentionally been given particular emphasis, namely the reception of classical culture in mediaeval and early modern times, especially in Poland. Our intention was to shed some light on matters which certainly deserve attention but usually pass unnoticed outside the Polish-speaking scholarly community.

The English translations have been available on a CD attached to fasc. 2013/2 and they have are now also accessible online.

The translation of these papers, and the publication of the CD, would not have been possible without the generous support of the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education and its National Programme for the Development of the Humanities (Narodowy Program Rozwoju Humanistyki, NPRH, project 31 H 11 0076 80).
