Medieval Greek

Dear all,

I do not know anything about Medieval Greek. Does it has any great history work like Gesta Francorum or Gesta Romarum...? I am very interested in reading History, Legend, Myths like those

If the Medieval Greek is different from the Classical, could I learn it with the standard of Classical Greek?

Please kindly share your knowledge

Sincerely yours,

Books on Attic Greek

Does anyone know of any good textbooks for learning it? Particularly for a beginner? I was told to start with Attic Greek when it comes to studying this language. Thanks!

I noticed this text has numerous editions. This may be a stupid question but which edition should I go with? What are the difference between the various editions? Also, would I be looking to purchase just one book or does this course come with a variety of books?

I am a new student! novus discipulus sum :D

Hello, everyone! I am very excited to be here, and hope that I could learn from you all on Greek and Latin! :lol:

Cum domos vacuas

Orberg has this from Cap XLIV of LLPSI.

Arruntis Tarquinii et Tulliae minoris prope continuis funeribus cum domos vacuas novo matrimonio fecissent, L. Tarquinius et Tullia maior iunguntur nuptiis!

I'm a bit perplexed by cum domos vacuas.

I'm assuming it's consequential in meaning. So 'With the simultaneous death (murder) of Arruns Tarquinius and Tullia Minor a new match was made while the homes were empty....

Its domos vacuas conceptual here? As in both spouses were ...

Neque ea res...

This from Orberg LLPSI Cap XLIV.

Servius, quamquam iam usu haud dubie regnum possidebat, tamen — quia L. Tarquinius, filius Tarquinii Prisci, dicebat 'eum iniussu populi regnare' — ausus est ad populum referre 'vellent iuberentne se regnare?' Tantoque consensu quanto haud quisquam alius ante rex est declaratus.

Neque ea res Tarquinio spem affectandi regni minuit...

Nor did this (fact) diminish the hope, with which Tarquin desired, power...

I'm thinking regni is genitive...?

Ea erat confession

Orberg in LLPSI has this from Cap XLIV:

Aucta civitate magnitudine urbis, non armis, sed consilio augere imperium conatus est, simul et aliquod addere urbi decus. Iam tum erat inclutum fanum Dianae Ephesi; id communiter a civitatibus Asiae factum fama ferebat. Eum consensum deosque consociatos laudabat Servius inter primores Latinorum, cum quibus publice privatimque hospitia amicitiasque iunxerat. Saepe iterando eadem perpulit tandem ut Romae in Aventino fanum Dianae populi Latini cum populo Romano facerent. Ea ...

Rosen für Apoll

Has anyone read Joachim Fernau? There are audiobooks available for Rosen für Apoll, and I thought I'd make that my next German listening project.

Are there other suggestions for Greek and Roman themed German books/novels that I should listen to?

Advice on learning Latin


I have been learning Latin for almost one year by myself. My vocabulary is intermediate (unfortunately not good enough to fully understand Cicero, Vergil or Seneca) and I think I have mastered most of the grammar.

Are there any advice, texts or resources (preferably available online) you can give me to help me to go on studying Latin and get a better vocabulary?

Cura ut valeas!
