Book description

The Corpus of Latin Texts on Papyrus (CLTP) is a comprehensive, up-to-date and unique reference-tool in six volumes, gathering nearly 1500 Latin texts on papyrus. Editions are provided with both a palaeographic and a critical apparatus, translations of the texts into English and an exhaustive introduction and commentary. The texts in CLTP cover a wide chronological range and many different types and genres. They include both literary and documentary texts, dating from the first century BC to the Middle Ages. They provide new knowledge about the circulation of Latin, offering unique insights into textual transmission and indeed of Latin literature itself, but also into topics such as ancient education and multilingualism, economics, society, culture, and multiculturalism in the ancient Mediterranean world. The result is a lasting and crucial reference work for all those interested in the history of Latin and of the Roman world.
