Guide to L'Annee Philologique

 

L'Annee Philologique (APh) is an annual index of research on all aspects of classical studies.  It includes subjects such as history, literature, art, religion, folklore, archaeology, and more. APh indexes books, journal articles, dissertations, conference proceedings, editions of ancient texts, and book reviews published in several languages.

 

There is no cumulative index for L’Annee Philologique. Each volume of APh contains materials published within that particular year only.  Consult multiple volumes of L’Annee Philologique (Rivera Ref  Z7016 A5 ) for materials written in multiple years. 

 

Beginning with volume 36, U.S. and British Commonwealth publications are reported by the American branch of APh.  A geographical index was added in 1971.   

 

L’Annee Philologique Consists 2 Parts

Ø      Part I. Authors and Texts (Auteur Et Texts): search materials about classical author, their writings as well as anonymous classics.

Ø      Part II. Subject Areas (Matieres Et Disciplines): search materials by broad subject categories.

 

 

Part I. (Premiere Partie) Authors and Texts (Auteur Et Texts) 

Search materials about classical authors, their writings as well as anonymous classics

 

Ø      Authors are listed under the Latin form of the name in alphabetical order.

Ø      Greek name are converted to their Latin equivalent. For example, Homer becomes Homerus.

Ø      In Latin names, the Latin endings are used, “v” is written as “u” unless it is an initial “v”.  For examples:

Livy -> Liuius

Virgil -> Vergilius Maro.

Ø      Anonymous classics are generally listed by title.

 

Look at the record on Tacitus:

 

 

Ø      The first set of entries under a name is usually a list of texts by that author, i.e. editions, translations on that author's works. 
For example, the first listing under Tacitus is an edition of Book III of his histories.

 

Ø      The second set of entries under "Etudes" ("studies") consists of works about this ancient author.  They are listed in alphabetical order by the names of modern authors.  Each entry also has a unique entry number.

       For example, Charles Brink’s article entitled “Can Tacitus Dialogus be dated?” is a contemporary scholarship about Tacitus.

 

Now look article by Charles Brink about Tacitus Dialogus listed under “Etudes”
