Периодические издания


Since 1999, the Bibliotheca classica Pertopolitana and the Gymnasium classicum Petropolitanum publish ‘Abaris’ (the Magazine of Friends of Gymnasium classicum Petropolitanum), which includes articles, reports, poems, translations, summer travel accounts by pupils, graduates, teachers and classicists. Each issue is dedicated to a particular topic – such as travel in the ancient world, ancient Greek or Latin authors, fantastic creatures, etc.

Ancient World and Us

The Almanac "Ancient World and Us" touches upon the impact of classics on European and Russian culture. Hence (to say nothing about the geographical anchor of the editors) our special emphasis is on classical traditions in St. Petersburg.


Hyperboreus was founded by the Bibliotheca classicaPetropolitana in 1994 as the first academic journal in Russia since the 1917 revolution specializing in the field of classical studies. Scholars from the Classical Department of St. Petersburg State University, the St. Petersburg Institute of History (Russian Academy of Sciences) and St. Petersburg classical Gymnasium participated in the foundation of the journal. The editors value highly the support and advice of many Western European and American scholars during the foundation and subsequent activities of Hyperboreus.
