    Bigongiari's writings, as Henry Paolucci explains in his preface to the original edition, consist of only a few essay and articles. His extraordinary intellectual energies, Paolucci explains, went for the most part into preparing future scholars and helping then write their own works.  He shared generously with colleagues his store of knowledge, from the Greeks and Romans through medieval and Renaissance authors, down to the modern philosophers, as well as his impeccable and faultless reading of original Greek and Latin texts.  
    The essays in this volume, though few, nonetheless reflect Bigongiari's wide variety of interest and scholarly rigor.
