OVERVIEW OF ANCIENT GREEK
Instructor: Richard Rodriguez
Classes start SATURDAY January 16, 2021
A bird's-eye view of the structure and development of the Ancient Greek language over the long course of its history, with an emphasis on the relationship between Classical Athenian and Koine dialects used in Sacred Scripture and the Church Fathers.
There is NO TEXTBOOK/WORKBOOK. There are NO weekly exercises. Although we will see several examples of key vocabulary and how the grammar works in context, this is NOT a class for learning grammar/vocabulary.
The intended audience is those who would like to get a better sense of what concepts are in play when discussing Greek, what kinds of linguistic issues may arise in translation, what the major similarities/differences with English are, and what kind of time/effort investment might be required to embark upon learning the language properly.
A sequence of courses for learning Ancient Greek will be offered beginning Summer 2021.
Classes will be held via Zoom Saturdays from 10am – 11am [CST]
The cost is $50.00 for the class. There is no textbook.
Please pay for the class through our Give Central page. Note, however, that payment is not registration.
To register, you must e mail Mr Rodriguez. Registration closes on Monday, January 11. We will not be able to accept any students after this date.
