Studi Classici e Orientali (SCO)


Founded in 1951 by Giovanni Pugliese Carratelli, "Studi Classici e Orientali" (Classical and Oriental Studies) was born as the journal of the Institute of Ancient History of Pisa University but, soon after, became the reference publication seat for the Institutes of Archaeology and Classical Philology and, finally, for the Institute of European Linguistics. Since the 1980s the journal has been publishing most of the scientific activities carried out in the Departments of Classical Philology, Linguistics, Archaeological Sciences, and Historical Sciences of the Ancient World (Filologia Classica, Linguistica, Scienze Archeologiche, Scienze Storiche del Mondo Antico), from 2012 joined in two new Departments: Philology, Literature, Linguistics (Filologia, Letteratura e Linguistica) and Civilizations and knowledge (Civiltà e forme del sapere).

From the beginning, however, the journal has been characterized by its multifold interests, as illustrated by the title, and by its aperture to the study of numerous aspects related to the ancient world, in both Graeco-Roman and Oriental spheres. The contributions published here concern philology, literature, linguistics, archaeology, political, social, economic and religious history, history of law, cultural history, history of Science, and other branches of historical research, since the review closely abides by the grand tradition of the Sciences of Antiquity as an organic and inseparable whole. The journal has held fast to this line under the direction of Silvio Ferri (1954-1970), Graziano Arrighetti (1970-1980), and Antonio Carlini (1980-2005), and intends to continue to pursue it into the future, in a continuous effort to combine tradition, new perspectives and methods of research and to maintain and renew its vitality.

Entrusted for thirty years to the publisher Giardini (then IEPI), from 2005 the journal, a property of the Pisa University, is edited by the publishing house of the same University (PLUS from 2005 to 2011, Pisa University Press from 2012).
