Like living beings, texts and ideas evolve and change, some die out, others stay alive, but take a different shape. The purpose of this series is to explore the mechanisms of evolution and survival of texts and ideas from Antiquity to the Renaissance, that is, in a period in which texts were more fragile and ideas paradoxically freer (despite all kinds of censorship and social control) than in a time of increasing mass production. The unique character of this series consists in keeping together two aspects of scholarship which are too often, and wrongly so, kept separated: history of texts, textual criticism and scholarly editing on the one hand, and intellectual, cultural and artistic history on the other. As such, this series will certainly open up new perspectives for research in the long term.

Peer review: All volumes in this series are evaluated by an Editorial Board, strictly on academic grounds, based on reports prepared by referees who have been commissioned by virtue of their specialism in the appropriate field. The Board ensures that the screening is done independently and without conflicts of interest. The definitive texts supplied by authors are also subject to review by the Board before being approved for publication.
