This book, prepared as a step in the academic cooperation between the CECH – Centro de Estudos Clássicos e Humanísticos of the UC – and the PRAGMA – Program of Ancient Philosophical Studies of the UFRJ -, includes several studies on the reception of Greco-Latin themes and models in the literature and culture of Portugal and Brazil.
Its originality is a consequence of putting together two different cultures and several disciplines, as researchers come from Literature, Philosophy and Ancient History. The period considered, from the 16th to the 20th centuries, allows a global view of the cultural evolution of the two countries, in a good part made in common.
