The International Society for the Classical Tradition
The ISCT was established at Boston University in 1991 by Meyer Reinhold and Wolfgang Haase in conjunction with numerous scholars from various countries. Its goal is to coordinate and communicate the work of scholars in many disciplines who are investigating the imprints left on later civilizations by the languages, literatures, arts, institutions, and mores of ancient Greece and Rome. Some of the major areas of study include post-classical history, literature, language, philosophy, politics, theater, fine arts, architecture, law, science and even popular culture. The International Journal of the Classical Tradition (IJCT) communicates the Society’s work. The journal is edited at Boston University and was founded with the support of Boston University and of the Breuninger Foundation, Stuttgart.
In recent decades study of the classical tradition has matured as a major field of scholarship. Inspired by interest in how diverse peoples have learned from each other over time, scholars of the classical tradition focus on unifying elements in world culture. The need for a forum for exchange among scholars on the classical tradition has become increasingly evident all over the world. Under the direction of its editors, Wolfgang Haase and Meyer Reinhold (1909-2002), the ISCT is serving this need.
