Resources for Research
Princeton University offers a vast range of resources for research in Hellenic Studies. Our Hellenic collections are accessible to Princeton faculty and students, as well as visiting scholars from around the world. Firestone Library houses extensive research collections in the classical, Byzantine, and modern Greek fields. These collections have special strengths in Greek papyri, Byzantine manuscripts, and coins; modern Greek literature, theater, music, history, politics, and culture; Greeks in the Ottoman Empire; and Anglo-American literary philhellenism. There are also rare books on travel to Greece and the Levant. In addition, there are significant archival and manuscript collections on 20th-century United States–Greek relations, as well as extensive photographic collections (19th and 20th centuries) on Greece, Athens, Constantinople, and the Eastern Mediterranean. The Art Museum has unique research collections of Classical, Late Antique, and Byzantine art. The Index of Christian Art is a comprehensive resource for the study of Western Medieval and Byzantine iconography.
