This series will publish major scholarly books on the "Old World" from which virtually all contemporary Western traditions arose, a place where Latin and Greek meet Arabic and Hebrew, where Sanskrit merges with Persian, and where the great empires compete. Open to the major disciplines in the humanities, Traditions will provide a wide focus, both in time and space, to foster a better understanding of what lasts, what transforms, what disappears, and why.
