DAWSON CENTRE SUMMER SCHOOLS
MEDIEVAL LATIN 13-17 JANUARY 2020
This course will offer a general introduction to post-classical Latin, poetry and prose, sacred and secular. Some prior knowledge of Latin is recommended. There will be an introduction to palaeography, including an opportunity to handle original manuscripts.
NEW TESTAMENT GREEK 20-24 JANUARY 2020
An intensive course in the koine Greek of the New Testament. We shall read passages from the Epistles and Gospels, as well as the Septuagint and Christian literature of the apostolic age. The course is aimed at beginners, but it is strongly recommended that all learn the Greek alphabet before commencing; exercises will be posted out beforehand to assist in that.
Both January Summer Schools will be held at Jane Franklin Hall (a college of the University of Tasmania), 6 Elboden Street, South Hobart. Write to me directly for further information.
