The enduring appeal and relevance of ancient Greek and Roman literature has created an abundance of scholarly work in this field, and since the end of the eighteenth century, there have been hundreds of Classics scholars. The Database of Classical Scholars offers its visitors an extensive and fully searchable who's who of the field, providing both biographical and bibliographical information on more than 800 scholars thus far. Each entry in the database is accompanied by a portrait (when available) and a brief "appreciation" of the scholar's career written by an expert. Visitors can also view twelve videos of interviews recorded in 2014 with renowned scholars, such as Elaine Fantham at Princeton University. This ongoing international project has plans to substantially expand its database and will eventually include additional entries for both contemporary and past classical scholars, as well as more interviews. Now housed at Rutgers University, the Database of Classical Scholars has been endorsed by the Society for Classical Studies.
