Faculty of Classics

 

The Cambridge Philological Society was founded in 1872. Its objects are the furtherance of classical studies in general, and in particular the discussion and publication of critical researches into the languages, literature and civilization of Greece and Rome. Any person interested in the ancient world is eligible for membership, and any library is eligible to become an institutional subscriber.

The Society meets to hear papers around eight times per year.

In addition it is responsible for two publications. Cambridge Classical Journal (formerly Proceedings of the Cambridge Philological Society) is an annual scholarly journal, now published by Cambridge University Press as part of Cambridge Journals Online. Members may choose to receive the journal in hard copy or in electronic form, and all members and subscribing institutions have electronic access to a full archive of the journal. Supplements to CCJ is a series of occasional monographs: a full list is here.
