Description


This Hellenistic Greek reader is designed for students who have completed one or more years of Greek and wish to improve their reading ability and gain a better appreciation for the diversity of Hellenistic Greek. This goal can only be accomplished by working through a selection of Greek texts that reflect different styles, genres, provenances, and purposes. The seventy passages in this reader have been arranged into eight parts on the basis of their level of difficulty. Each passage is accompanied by grammatical support and vocabulary lists, as well as other aids to translation, including a cumulative glossary. The grammatical information is contained in the footnotes. The vocabulary lists are conveniently arranged below the Greek texts to which they refer. - Includes canonical and non-canonical Christian texts, Septuagint (prose and poetry), Jewish Pseudepigrapha, inscriptions, and Jewish and Hellenistic literary Greek. - Includes a Web component with more than thirty additional readings for classroom and independent use. - Passages offer a glimpse into the everyday life of Hellenistic Greeks, with themes such as sexuality, slavery, magic, apocalypticism, and Hellenistic philosophy.
