Review:

"Reorganizes the field and challenges our preconceptions in both familiar areas and in disciplines that are not usually treated in studies on the classical tradition. A must read.
Craig Kallendorf, Texas A&M University

An exciting read: energetic, considered, sparklingly written. One gets the feeling that all angles have been properly covered. An ambitious project brilliantly realized.
Matthew Bell, King′s College London

The authors have pulled off the seemingly impossible task of fusing their three voices into a single, urgently argued discourse, and for that reason among many others, this will be a wonderful book to read and to use, for all kinds of readers.
Terence Cave, St John′s College, Oxford

I found the text very readable and I particularly enjoyed the post–post–modernist take on many issues.  It is hugely stimulating and intriguing throughout.
Deborah Howard, University of Cambridge

I think this is an absolutely splendid text, unique in conception, elegant and ingenious in design, and extremely ′user–friendly′ in styling and presentation.
David Hopkins, Bristol University

Review:

It conducts, to its great benefit and ours, a properly theoretical enquiry....The book′s structure and contents are highly innovative, with short, packed chapters, in the main driven by ideas not data, jointly written throughout by the three authors with their complementary expertise (so giving an intellectual consistency that a multi–authored volume necessarily lacks)... It belongs in the library of anyone who seriously cares about Western culture. (Translation and Literature, 2015)

The authors are able to write a most readable book that has the merit to summarize the topic of the afterlife of antiquity with a variety not common in other books on the same subject. The emphasis on architecture, and not only on visual arts, and the references to political and aesthetic thought are most welcome."  (Enthymema, 28 November 2014)
