Correct translation of Titus 2,13 ?

Titus 2,13:

Looking for our blessed hope, the manifestation of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Or (to avoid any trinitarian misunderstanding)

Looking for our blessed hope: the manifestation of Jesus Christ, the glory of our great God and Savior.

The great God and savior is the Father. In the same epistle and chapter, verse 1O describes God as savior:

ENA TO XELIDONI (Greek song)

Hi,

One of my favourite Greek songs is Ena To Xelidoni (One The Sparrow). It represents to the Greeks struggle, hope and freedom. It is written by Odysseas Elytis, winner of the 1979 Nobel Prize in Literature for his work Axion Esti (Worthy It Is).

Here are the lyrics (in Modern Greek) to the song:

Ena To Xelido/ni

Ena to xelido/ni kai h a/noich akribh/
gia na guri/sei o h/lioj qe/lei douleia/ pollh/.

You shall not pass?

I was just reminded of Gandalf's line in The Lord of the Rings, which I saw before learning Latin, the language that fixed me grammatically...
...i've read that "shall" is only used with "I" and "we"...

Some perseus help please?

I am a little overwelmed by the size of the perseus web site.
I use one part of quite regularly but outside of that I am lost.
How do I find out the meaning of a Greek inflected form. I entered my word in a search field but I did not get results.
Thanks in advance.

Elephants

Episcopus, shall I buy a pet elephant?

And Klewlis, where do you get used classics books in Ontario? Currently I am looking around for an Oxford Latin Dictionary, and obviously, the new price (~$460 CAN) is discouraging. Therefore tell me of your secret haunts.

Aeolians

I studied "Classical Societies" for a semester in high school. From what I remember*, the textbook divided Ancient Greece between Dorians and Ionians. It wasn't until I started looking at the language that I learnt there was a third race.

My question is, can anyone direct me to website that has a map showing the three races? Or, could anyone give me a basic rundown of whereabouts the Aeolians lived?





*My memory might be fuzzy. ...

Troy - The movie

You all know there's a new movie about Troy. They found a very original title: the movie is entitled Troy!
A fabulous cast, good publicity, ... what do you want more?
Maybe a good movie?
