The Idea of the Library in the Ancient World
by Yun Lee Too
A study of the ancient library as a complex institution with many different functions: as an instrument of power, of memory; an articulation of a political ideal, an art gallery, a place for sociality. Too incidentally raises conceptual questions about modern libraries, bringing to these the insights that a study of antiquity can offer.
