Due out March 2020, the brand-new
Edinburgh Companion to Sidonius Apollinaris

Be among the first to have a look here
Pre-ordering starts in February

Kelly and van Waarden, world authorities on Sidonius, have assembled the latest cutting-edge international scholarship on Sidonius’ life, his context in late Roman literary culture, his manuscript tradition and the reception of his work. A central witness to the fall of Rome, Sidonius deserves a worthy Companion. This is it.
