Classics is the study of the ancient Greek and Roman world, its cultures, and their impact on later cultural traditions.
Our evolving understanding of these concepts (e.g. "ancient," “culture,” “Roman”) gives our discipline dynamism, while a common body of texts function as its shared center. Classics is also interested in how later peoples understood and transformed this inheritance, generating the rich Classical tradition in literature and the other arts.
