Founded in 2018, the Consolation of Antiquity is a monthly blog devoted to classical antiquity with an emphasis firmly fixed on ancient Greek, Roman, and medieval Byzantine civilizations. Brevity is the driving ambition of every blog entry, hence only a synopsis of the examined book as well as up to five of its excerpts will be used. The excerpts will endeavor to recognize meaningful passages relevant to the critical ideas of the book.
