Epictetus Discourses 1:1

Has anybody here tried to read Epictetus? Is it just me or is this greek extremely difficult? (I thought he would be a piece of cake because I'm very familiar with him in translation and I read that his greek usage was similar to biblical greek).

Anyway,heres my actual question.

Intensive Biblical Greek Summer Course

I would like to learn Biblical Greek, but I am not close to an institution that teaches it. I would like to go someplace for a summer to do an intensive course. I would also like to receive undergraduate credit for it. Does anyone know of such a program?

Thanks.

'Brevissimae bracae' is Latin for hotpants

September 1, 2004


The Vatican has come up with some new Latin descriptions that have not received a universal welcome. Elizabeth Day reports from London.

As the iuvenis voluptarius might say: "Put on your brevissimae bracae femineae and let's go to the taberna nocturna and drink some vinum rubrum Burdigalense."

The Vatican has helpfully produced a new lexicon of modern words in Latin, providing translations for such non-classical terms as playboy, hotpants, nightclub and merlot. ...

In contrast, my Wheelock text makes no distinction toward that whatsoever, and makes the subject MUCH simpler. :P Does this tense-dividing matter much?
For example, M&F diffrentiates how the Perfect tense is used in both categories, i.e. perfect in ...
