Who was Homer?

I was speaking with someone today, who considers himself as quite a literary critic....we spoke briefly of Homer, I was recalling my fondness for the Odyssey, and he was of the opinion that ther was no such man as Homer.

I need a map of an area of ancient Rome

Hi all,

I am writing an epic novel based in ancient Rome and I am researching the heroes ordinary world (where she lives), but can't seem to find a map of the area, hopefully with some detail.

Reading Plan

I'm thinking about putting together a reading calendar to read the Entire Greek NT. I would like to do it in either a year or two years. I'm still very much a beginner, but I do have some understanding as I read.

How ambitious is this? I'd like to read it regardless of how much I understand or retain. Even though I'm reading for aquaintence rather than full understanding it seems like a good idea ...

I joined today

I said hello on the "Learning Greek" board before realizing that way down the list I would find a place created especially for introductions. I started learning Greek a couple weeks ago and did an internet search and discovered this site the other day. It's absolutely amazing! There's so much information available. I'll definitely be spending a lot of time here!

My first time here

I discovered this website just a few days ago and I wanted to post and say how impressed I am with it! I've always enjoyed learning languages, and when I was a teenager (about 20+ years ago) I had it in mind that I was going to learn several, but life took a lot of twists and turns and I never managed to become fluent in any at all. A few years ago I decided ...
