from Oxford University Press:
To celebrate the start of 2009, Oxford is delighted to announce the arrival of two highly-anticipated additions to the Oxford Digital Reference Shelf:
THE OXFORD CLASSICAL DICTIONARY, THIRD EDITION REVISED
This newly revised and completely up-to-date third edition of this historic reference reflects the expansion in the scholarship and scope of classical studies. Here, in over six thousand entries ranging from long articles to brief identifications, readers can find information on virtually any topic of interest: athletics, bee-keeping, botany, magic, Roman law, navigation, and the reckoning of time. The Dictionary profiles every major figure of Greece and Rome-and lesser known figures not found in other references-from Homer and Virgil, to Plato and Aristotle, to Julius Caesar and Alexander the Great. Readers will find entries on mythological and legendary figures, on major cities and famous buildings, and on legal, rhetorical, literary, and political terms and concepts, as well as extensive thematic articles that offer superb coverage of topics of interest to both scholars and general readers.
-- Simon Hornblower and Anthony Spawforth, Editors
THE OXFORD DICTIONARY OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH, THIRD EDITION REVISED
Authoritative and wide-ranging in its scope, The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church is the indispensable one-volume reference work on all aspects of the Christian Church. It contains over 6,000 cross-referenced A-Z entries, and offers unrivalled coverage of all aspects of this vast and often complex subject, from theology; churches and denominations; patristic scholarship; and the bible; to the church calendar and its organization; popes; archbishops; saints; and mystics. An essential resource for ordinands, clergy, and members of religious orders, The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church is an invaluable tool for academics, teachers, and students of church history and theology, as well as for the general reader.
-- F. L. Cross and E. A. Livingstone, Editors
