The Historical Review / La Revue Historique is an annual, open-access, peer-reviewed journal that is published annually. It is a forum for publication of articles and book reviews covering cutting-edge, state-of-the-art historical research. Historical Review / La Revue Historique especially welcomes scholarly articles on the broad field of Hellenic Studies, and on the history of the Mediterranean and of Southeastern Europe, from the 16th century up the 20th century. We invite original papers and critical perspectives from all fields of historical inquiry within the social sciences and the humanities. The journal is bilingual (English and French). Historical Review / La Revue Historique is published by the Section of Neohellenic Research of the Institute of Historical Research of the National Hellenic Research Foundation, the largest historical research institute focusing on Greek history in the world.
Journal dedicated to the historiographical texts of Greece and Rome; Byzantine historiography; the historiography of other ancient cultures; ancient biography; the influence of historiography and biography on other literary genres; precursors of historiography and biography; modern theory relevant to the study of historiography; and indeed ancient use of non-literary media for the representation of the past.
The Suda is a 10th century Byzantine historical encyclopedia in five volumes, derived from the scholia to critical editions of canonical works and from compilations by earlier authors. As the Oxford Classical Dictionary notes, "in spite of its contradictions and other ineptitudes, [the Suda] is of the highest importance, since it preserves (however imperfectly) much that is ultimately derived from the earliest or best authorities in ancient scholarship, and includes material from many departments of Greek learning and civilization." The Suda has never been translated into English, and that is one goal of this project, but there are many other ways in which an electronic version can offer increased accessibility: the collaborators aim to produce a keyword-searchable database with annotations, bibliography, and links to Perseus, the TLG and other important electronic resources.
