Euphrosyne is a journal issued annually that publishes original studies on Greek and Roman literature, linguistics and culture, as well as on Medieval Latin culture and literature, Neo-Latin Humanism, the Classical Tradition and its impact on European culture to the present day. Submissions on codicology and epigraphy are also accepted for publication.

Euphrosyne is the main Portuguese journal of Classical Studies. The journal has always entailed a high level of international collaboration. The majority of contributions are written in languages other than Portuguese (English, Spanish, French, Italian, Germany). Research innovation and originality have always been at the core of Euphrosyne‘s agenda.
