Class of Greek and Latin Studies

The Class of Greek and Latin Studies (Classis Graecolatina) was officially established on November 25, 2010 with the appointment of the Director, the Academic Secretary and the seven Founding Academicians.

At present (2018) it includes 25 Academicians. For the most part they are scholars in the philological, literary and palaeographic disciplines in the classical, medieval and Byzantine fields, above all concerned with the patrimony of texts preserved in the Ambrosiana.
