Current reads (spinoff from least favorite books)


Just curious. Besides your Greek/Latin studies... what are you currently reading?

I'm almost finished with "The Name of the Rose" (Umberto Eco). And I've got "The Elegant Universe" (Brian Greene) waiting in the wings.... let's see what this string theory is all about!

School Books (from least favorite books)

I'd be interested to hear what others have read in school and what they thought of the assigned books.


Well, my schooling is almost entirely reading. Science, history, biology-everything except math and writing are taught through reading. So everything I've read (and mentioned) is part of my schooling.

Greek is Slavonic

Macedonian is really confusing. First I don’t even know what the heck this guy is talking about. http://www.maknews.com/html/articles/belchevsky1.html

Is just me or is he confusing ancient Macedonian with Modern Macedonian? From what I gather he is saying ancient Macedonian is a Slavonic language. Is (Alexandrian) Macedonian even an Indo-European language?

Then there is the Greek take on this. Macedonian is a Greek dialect ...? What kind of linguistics/philology are ...

Kaneh-bosem

A trivial question(actually, two questions) for who speaks or knows Hebrew quite much. I'm curious because modern Hebrew is said to be a rebuilt language.
Modern Hebrew-English dictionary has Kaneh-bos as hemp. And there's a web site that says the Kaneh-bosem in Ex. 30:22-33, an ingredient of the anointing oil, is hemp.(and that cannabis is derivative from kaneh-bos) Is it true that the occurrence of Kaneh-bosem in the OT is the hemp plant?

Crosby Greek Grammar 1860/Hansen & Quinn

The site below has been designed by a Richard Hunerlach to assist members of an on-line group studying Greek using the Hansen and Quinn Textbook. As well as tutorial help for that textbook the site also has a link to an on-line version of Crosby's Grammar 1860 and Greek Lessons, 1849. Crosby's was one of the standard 19th century grammars, which prepared students to read Xenophon's Anabasis. I am lucky to have a copy.

Virtual Christianity: Bibles

This is where I used to visit to refer to the bible. tho' these days I prefer Perseus for NT. Check out "Blue Letter Bible" and "Unbound Bible" for Hebrew and Greek versions.
(In "Blue Letter Bile" click on the "C" button on the left of each verse to see the Hebrew or Greek.)
