Classical Greek and Latin culture is at the very foundation of modern European identity. From philosophy to architecture, geometry to law, a variety of contemporary subjects and disciplines have their roots in the classical world. Only a small fraction of the total production of Greco-Roman texts has survived to the present day, leaving wide gaps in the historiographical record of an epoch that is immensely relevant to our modern day lives.
The collections held by the EAGLE partners have been assembled with the two-fold criterion of historical-cultural significance and strong thematic unity.
EAGLE collections feature a great variety of inscriptions written in Greek, Latin and other ancient languages, providing scholars with an authoritative resource by which to verify the reliability of historical reconstructions. Additionally, the collections equip the broad public with a way to understand and easily appreciate interesting and geographically dispersed inscriptions.
This section will offer an overview of each of the major collections represented in EAGLE.
