Hans-Friedrich Mueller (Ph.D., University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) serves as the Thomas B. Lamont Professor of Ancient & Modern Literature at Union College in Schenectady, New York. He received the American Philological Association’s Award for Excellence in the Teaching of Classics in 2001, and under his direction, the program in classics at Union College has been noted especially for its interdisciplinary curriculum, where he has himself taught a wide range of courses in Greek, Latin, and classics in translation. Earlier in his career, he spent a year at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences in Munich, Germany, where he worked on entries for an encyclopedic Latin dictionary, the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae, writing articles for fifteen words beginning with the letter “p.” Mueller is the author of Roman Religion in Valerius Maximus (Routledge, 2002), the editor of an abridged edition of Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (Modern Library, 2003), the translator of Andreas Mehl’s Roman Historiography: An Introduction to its Development and Basic Aspects (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011), as well as the author of Caesar: Selections from his Commentarii De Bello Gallico (Bolchazy-Carducci, 2012) and two thirty-six lecture courses on DVD, Latin 101: Learning a Classical Language (Teaching Company, 2013), and Greek 101: Learning Ancient Greek with Homer and the New Testament (Teaching Company, in production). His current project is a study of social, legal, and religious aspects of life at night in ancient Rome.
