Aletheia entry for Brill Dictionary of Ancient GreeceWe are happy to tell you that we have added two new e-resources that were previously only available in print: Encyclopaedia of Islam Online and Brill Dictionary of Ancient Greece. Both resources are now accessible to all patrons, both on and off campus, and will be especially useful as quick references sources for scholars in classics or theological studies.

TheĀ Encyclopaedia of Islam Online (Second Edition) is an authoritative source not only for the religion, but also for the believers and the countries in which they live. It includes articles on tribes and dynasties, on the crafts and sciences, on political and religious institutions, on the geography, ethnography, flora and fauna of the various countries and on the history, topography and monuments of the major towns and cities. Its geographical and historical scope encompasses the old Arabo-Islamic empire, the Islamic countries of Iran, Central Asia, the Indian sub-continent and Indonesia, the Ottoman Empire and all modern Islamic states. All entries include bibliographies.

The Brill Dictionary of Ancient Greek is the English translation of Franco Montanari’s Vocabolario della Lingua Greca. It brings together 140,000 words taken from the literature, papyri, inscriptions and other sources of the archaic period up to the 6th Century CE (all entries include citations). The Brill Dictionary of Ancient Greek is an invaluable companion for the study of Classics and Ancient Greek, for beginning students and advanced scholars alike.
