Introduction for James Rothering

Hello Everyone:

Normally I'd lurk for a while before posting at all, but the "Read Me" seems scary & you must have had some nasty experiences which require such stringent account deletion rules! But I'm happy that the spammers are not welcome.

I just started dabbling with Classical Greek a few weeks ago. I took one quarter of it in college, but didn't continue because it was just too much work in conjunction with what ...

I introduce myself

Hi everybody,
First of all thanks you for opening the doors of the forum ! I am 35 years old, I have a fantastic wife who unfortunately doesn't speak Latin and who doesn't speak ancient Greek either. We have three children - four in a few months. I am keen on speaking about Greek and Latin litterature and I try to improve my Latin and ancient Greek writing proficiency, therefore I subscribed to this forum. ...

No good history of the Renaissance?

Anybody know of a good, general-with- some detail, history of the Italian Renaissance? I am NOT looking for a cultural history-there are too many of those- I mean a good POLITICAL history. I have searched a lot, but it seems all the histories of this period have two focuses (foci, I should say): 1. Art & cultural history and 2. Bios of a few of the famous characters (Borgias, Medici, et al).Any advice? I have ...

Good morning!

Salvete!

Thank you for the admission into your group. Briefly, I'm a first-generation Andalusian raised in New York City. I have an interest in the study of languages. I had learnt some Latin from my father, who attended a Traditionalist Catholic school during his youth in Spain.

I'm also studying Classical Arabic as well.

I'm re-focusing my efforts via 'Lingva Latina, Pars Vnvs' by Orberg. I've completed reading out loud 'Capitvlvm Vnvm'. I'll begin the ...

Geriatric Learner

Hello!

Am I too old to re-learn Greek? I am British and passed the basic exam in Greek (General Certificate of Education, Ordinary Level) 56 years ago! I have forgotten practically everything in the ensuing years, but now, in my dotage, I have a real longing to recapture the little Greek I had, and perhaps add to it. My life is very restricted as I care full-time for my severely disabled husband so I try ...

New member, learning to read Epic Greek

Hi, just dropping in to introduce myself and say hi, and thanks for running this forum. I recently started reading Beetham's Beginning Greek With Homer. I have never learned any Greek before. I've been lurking here from time to time and found some great info, and I might want to post a few questions. I'm unlikely to be answering any hard ones for a little while though!

new user learning greek, saying hello!

Hi all! I'm a new user and just wanted to drop in and say hello to introduce myself (and also to follow the forum rules).

Anyways, here's the cheat-sheet version on me: my name is Greg, I'm 24 and got my BA in Linguistics and Japanese lit a few years ago. I actually initially wanted to do a PhD in Japanese literature focusing on Japan's equivalent to the Classical era, but wound up deciding the ...

new member writing sci-fi with some Latin words

Hi. I'm currently writing a sci-fi series of books set in the year 4017 that includes a ressurected Roman Empire. I'd like to include some Latin terms and titles for added realism. I'll post specific requests for help seperately.

Thanks
