History of Classical Scholarship 2022-05-04T19:59:05+00:00 Open Journal Systems <p><em>History of Classical Scholarship</em> (<em>HCS</em>) is an academic journal that sets out to be the first periodical exclusively devoted to the history of the studies on the Greek and Roman world, in a broad and interdisciplinary sense.</p> A South African Classicist at Cornell 2022-02-06T15:42:42+00:00 Jeffrey Murray <p><em>Barbara Isabella Buchanan (1854–1944), the first Chair of Classics at Huguenot College in Wellington in the Cape Colony, was the first South African-born woman to gain a Master’s degree. To date, historians of women’s edu­cation as well as classical education in South Africa have erroneously credited her with a doctoral degree from Cornell University. This article supplements lesser-known aspects of Buchanan’s biography, and in doing so, sheds light on her experiences in South Africa during the Second South African War of Independence (1899–1902).</em></p> 2022-02-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 'De epigrammatis Emeritensibus et Salmanticensibus cum Legionensi uno ex codicibus manuscriptis' 2022-02-10T15:46:45+00:00 Joan Carbonell Manils Helena Gimeno Pascual <p><em>La revisión de la tradición manuscrita para la epigrafía de Mérida, Salamanca y León -y singularmente el uso de los mss.

L’analisi del documento consente di rilevare l’importante contributo di Borghesi a tale campo di studi, nonché il debito metodologico di Labus nei confronti delle ricerche prosopografiche di Borghesi. Questi può ormai essere considerato a buon diritto il primo studioso che impostò su basi scientifiche la serie dei </em>praefecti Aegypti<em>.</em></p> <p><em>This paper presents the first edition of the draft of a letter from Bartolomeo Borghesi (1781–1860) to Giovanni Labus (1775–1853) concerning the study of 25 prefects of Roman Egypt. By analysing this document, it is possible to appreciate the important contribution provided by Borghesi to this research field, as well as Labus’ methodological debt towards the prosopographical investigations carried out by Borghesi. The latter can now rightly be considered the first scholar who drew up the series of the </em>praefecti Aegypti<em> on a scientific basis.</em></p> 2022-05-03T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c)
