My name is João Vicente Dias and I just registered in this forum. I am PhD candidate for Byzantine studies in the University of Mainz (Germany). My research theme is Byzantine political history of the 11th and 12th Centuries.
I ve been learning Greek for some years, but I still have a lot to learn (I posted a problem that I aways face in the Ancient Greek forum, hopefully someone can help me). In my learning process, I learned mostly Attic Greek, now I am dealing with a Byzantine texts. I thought that it would be a great shock, but it wasn't that much.
I am also learning Latin now. I am totally a beginner, then it is probable that I will ask you guys for help in this language also.
Hopefully my limited knowledge can also help others too.
My best regards,
João Vicente Dias
