Generell informasjon

This course is a cooperation between MF and The Norwegian Institute of Philology
To understand history, religion and literature of Greek antiquity it is necessary to understand one or more classical languages, but Greek has a particular importance. The course/reading group studies Greek originals, but in cases with Latin, Armenian, Georgian or Arabic translations in parallel.
Participating in the reading group will create an important background for any topic concerned with Classical Studies.
Procedures and curricula:
The course/reading group, being also a group for researchers, will read Greek textual materials relevant generally in Classical studies, but will also profile reading towards students’ particular needs, for their completion of M.A. and Ph.d. Theses.
General knowledge of Classical Greek. Ability to read an additional language among those mentioned above is an advantage.
This course is also offered at the bachelor level. For more information, see the course description for PHI2200.
