DESCRIPTION: The second semester of a two-semester introduction to Ancient Greek. By the end of the two-semester sequence, students will have studied all of the essential grammar necessary to read and understand both the Classical Greek of writers like Sophocles and Plato and the original Koine Greek of the New Testament. During the second semester students complete the second half (Vol. 2) of Balme's standard Ancient Greek textbook Athenaze.
TOPICS: Ancient Greek language, with some introduction to Ancient Greek, and particularly Athenian, history, literature, and culture.
OBJECTIVES: Students completing the two-semester Ancient Greek sequence will have gained access to the vast literary, philosophical, historical, and religious library that is the backbone of western civilization. They will be able to study these texts in their original language and appreciate the rich concepts and nuances that are often lost in translation. In effect, students reading Ancient Greek are better able to understand and explore the minds of Ancient Greeks and early Christians.
