First and foremost, we would like to extend our gratitude to everyone who contributed work to The Stoa’s first issue. It is because of the many excellent submissions we received that we were able to transform a simple idea into an impressive collection of scholarly texts.
We owe special thanks to Catherine Taylor for the thoughtful input and professional guidance she offered us throughout the various stages of production. We were able to avoid many potential failures as a result of her generosity.
We extend additional thanks to Professor Thomas Girshin, Tony Azzara, Stephen Briggs, the members of SGA, Theresa Radley, and the various others who supported us along the way.
