Was Greek Thought Religious? by Louis A. Ruprecht, Jr.

Book Description

The Greeks are on trial. They have been for generations, if not millennia, from Rome in the First century, to Romanticism in the Nineteenth. We debate the place of the Greeks in the university curriculum, in New World culture - we even debate the place of the Greeks in the European Union. This book notices the lingering and half-hidden presence of the Greeks in some strange places - everywhere from the U.S. Supreme Court to the Modern Olympic Games - and in doing so makes an important new contribution to a very old debate.

Classics at the Dawn of the Museum Era by Louis A. Ruprecht, Jr. Classics at the Dawn of the Museum Era, Hardback (January 2014)

Ruprecht hopes to show that Quatremere's true importance emerges only if we situate him in his own times, one generation after Winckelmann, in a very different, and a far more revolutionary and secularizing cultural moment.

Winckelmann and the Vatican's First Profane Museum by Louis A. Ruprecht, Jr. Winckelmann and the Vatican's First Profane Museum, Hardback (November 2011)

Offers the first-ever historical descriptions of the foundation of the "Museo Profano" inside the Vatican in 1761. Using the palace records from the Vatican's Secret Archives, Ruprecht demonstrates that the Vatican museum was the brainchild of J.J. Winckelmann, the so-called father of Art History.
