The invention of an imagined antique past, and creative responses to the material remains of ancient ruins and works of art are defining elements of the art, architecture and literature of Europe, the Mediterranean basin, Central and South Asia, and other parts of the world in the Early Modern period.

This series seeks to build and expand upon these areas of research. Many new approaches have opened up in recent decades, for example: the study of fictive notions of the ‘antique’, the intersection of the visual arts and other disciplines, comparative and cross-cultural approaches, and concepts of the ancient past in geographies beyond Europe. The series aims to reflect the current breadth of research, considering questions such as, what are the boundaries between documentation and invention in the reception of the antique? What strategies did artists, architects and others adopt to reconstruct, reinvent and interpret ancient remains?  How was antiquity imagined differently in different contexts?

With the aim of advancing the state of research, the series publishes outstanding monographs or collected essays on the Early Modern reception and invention of antiquity, including work inspired by The Census of Antique Works of Art and Architecture Known in the Renaissance.
