Department of Greek and Latin Philology


library 2


Our departmental library consists of three units – Classical Philology (Greek and Classical Latin), Medieval and Neo-Latin, and Egyptology – which occupy different spaces and are managed independently. These internal libraries offer an excellent working environment for researchers from these and related disciplines.

All three units are classified by subject, so that users can easily find the relevant editions, commentaries, translations and the most important secondary literature on a given author or topic (to consult the catalogue follow this link). Our library staff is happy to answer any questions you may have. 

The main Central Library of Zurich (Zentralbibliothek Zürich) also provides a substantial collection of relevant books, and via the Zentralbibliothek students and researchers are able to borrow books held by other universities in Switzerland and abroad.

Further information, including opening hours and responsible librarians, can be found on the German-language page.
