"Meander" was first issued in 1946 by two distinguished classical scholars, Kazimierz Kumaniecki and Kazimierz Michalowski. It covers a wide range of issues related to classical studies, including classical languages, ancient history and philosophy, the reception of Greek and Roman culture in Europe, and the classical scholarship in Poland. It presents work of both leading and younger Polish scholars. The articles are scholarly, yet intended to reach the wider audience of non-classicists interested in ancient culture.
Starting with the year 2013 the journal frequency has changed to annual.
