Ancient Narrative

As the name Ancient Narrative indicates, the areas of interest of the journal are: Greek, Roman, Jewish novelistic traditions, including novels proper, the "fringe", as well as the fragments; narrative texts of the Byzantine age, early Christian narrative texts - and the reception of these works in modern literature, film and music. Ancient Narrative is a peer reviewed open access journal, and makes no charge either to authors or to readers.

The website of Ancient Narrative also hosts the Petronian Society Newsletter: see the Archives and About > Policies.
