"This useful volume features 48 essays by expert contributors on philosophers, philosophical and religious movements (e.g. Gnosticism), theologians (e.g., Pseudo-Dionysius), and scientific thinkers (e.g., Ptolemy and Galen).... Especially valuable are the chapters on Christian Patristic thinkers (the Alexandrians and Cappadocians) and on the later pagan Neoplatonists, including Proclus, Damascius, Philoponus, and others.... the essays summarizing the results of this research are most welcome. Accompanying the essays are a 50-page list of works by ancient authors, an invaluable 200-page bibliography, an extensive index locorum, and a brief general index of subjects and authors. This excellent reference work will be a valuable addition to college and university libraries.... Highly recommended...."

Gerson’s many contributors have also all risen to a formidable task, making this an impressive showcase for the state of the art in a field that is rapidly gaining in recognition..."

In addition to the subtlety with which the myriad philosophical positions and systems are articulated and examined, the contributions all display an impressive acquaintance with the important philological scholarship that informs current attempts to rehabilitate the reputations of authors and works from late antiquity … has already become an indispensible reference work for the period …' Michael Fournier, Canadian Journal of History
