Among the published books and articles by Vincent Hunink, there are several in English. You will find a list of the most important ones below on this page.

Many of my articles in English have been digitalized. Most of them have become available on this website. Please check this page, or the index on authors.

For separate information about my editions and translations, I refer to my Dutch pages. You may also wish to consult the list of all publications (English, German, Dutch).

For work in progress, you may consult the page on 'projecten', which has a section in English on current research.


Here is a special book in Dutch from 2019
which I mention here because it may be relevant for international scholars.
It is the first translation ever to collect
all letters by Marcus Aurelius and Fronto,
and to present them in a chronological order
(rather than the thematical order in which they have been transmitted).
If you are interested to publish the book in another language,
please contact me.
