New Pauly is an encyclopedia of the ancient world for everyday use, even by students with a very modest amount of Greek or Latin. It offers simple paraphrases and quotes in translation as well as numerous illustrations, survey maps, and tables. It also covers the Classical tradition in Antiquity from 2000 BC to early medieval Europe. It contains brief articles on antiquity closely related to persons and texts. It also includes survey articles that provide orientation to periods, social and economic structures, genres, and philosophical systems.

This is the electronic version of Brill's New Pauly, which is the English language version of Der Neue Pauly, published by Verlag J.B. Metzler since 1996.
