Prof. Louise Cilliers

After a Ph.D. in Greek tragedy and various publications on Greek and Roman drama I became interested in Ancient Medicine in Graeco-Roman times. At present I am doing research on medical writers in the late Roman Empire, attempting to determine their contribution and preparing textual editions of their as yet unpublished Latin manuscripts. Coming from Africa myself, it is particularly authors from North Africa who interest me, whose texts I believe will be better understood when one knows more about their background and the history of their country. Many years of university teaching in Greek and Latin literature and history in South Africa and study at Leiden University in the Netherlands have proved to be useful for this project.
