The purpose of Studia Humaniora Tartuensia (SHT) is to publish scholarly papers and notes embodying original research in all areas of the humanities, but especially classical studies and ancient history, Neo-Latin studies, classical tradition, history of scholarship and philosophy. We encourage interdisciplinary contributions and submissions that use new approaches to elucidate their topic. Detailed treatments of specific themes are also welcome. We also publish book notices and reviews.
