Dear Colleagues and prospective authors,!

We are pleased to invite you to take part in the annual collection of articles on the history of ancient pedagogical culture. Each issue combines scientific articles, original texts, translations of foreign scientific works on the topic and reviews. This allows us to present the reader to a wide range of opinions belonging to representatives of various scientific schools and research areas, and to initiate an interdisciplinary field for scientific discussions on the history of ancient pedagogical culture. The conception of each issue is organised around the indicated theme and is obligatorily discussed with potential authors.

The theme of the third issue is "Education in Late Antiquity" (materials and proposals are accepted until March 11, 2019). The period of Late Antiquity was a time of rapid transformation of all spheres of social life, the emergence of new and the development of old cultural and religious traditions. In the era of the decline of the Roman Empire the traditions of ancient education experienced their last rise, marked by activities of such outstanding mentors as Libanius and Choricius, Marius Victorinus and Themistius, Ausonius Hymerius, the functioning of such important educational centers as the schools Athens, Alexandria, Gaza, Burdigala, Beritus. We dedicate the third issue of "Hypothekai" to the studies of a wide range of factors that provided this socio-cultural phenomenon and the interaction of old and new elements of the education life of the Mediterranean world III - VII centuries.

The theme of the fourth issue is "Ancient Education of the Warrior" (materials and proposals are accepted until March 11, 2020).
