About the Journal

Focus and Scope

Prudentia contains original articles on topics related to the study of the ancient world by scholars involved in the historical and literary research of the period. The articles are of interest to students of the ancient world, and to teachers involved in the Classical Studies programme in secondary schools in New Zealand, and of course to all who are involved with topics related to the ancient world at tertiary level. There are many book reviews in each issue, so that Prudentia provides a useful resource for those who want to keep up to date in the field.
