Comenius in Greek

Postby bedwere » Tue Jan 28, 2014 10:26 pm

Hi,

I stumbled upon this Comenius in Greek (with German parallel text).

Ὀνομαστικὸν περὶ τοῦ παντός

It seems to be different from the Janua Resereta Randy was working on. Does anyone know?

I guess that it is Orbis Pictus, except for the first six chapters.

I stumbled aloft this Mencius in Greek (with German alongside text). It seems to be altered from the Janua Deseret Randy was alive on. Does anyone know?

There's also this.

(I've been working on and off on a transcription of the text into readable type etc, actually I should have it ready in the next few weeks and will post it here once I do.)

I'm interested, Miguel. I think that the second book has a lot of errors, though.

Yes. Mostly in the gender of nouns. One of the versions is also better, insofar as it seems to have a better feel for the Greek than the other, knowing better when a verb should be middle voice etc. As far as I am able, I've been correcting and keeping track of these mistakes.

Miguel, I'd also been working on transcribing Comenius, though I haven't gotten very far. I'll keep an eye out for your transcription. I've noticed dozens of wrong accents, and I've been trying to determine whether the Greek and Latin words given as synonyms are actually synonymous. Sometimes they don't seem to match up very well. But it's worth the effort, since a corrected and reset Orbis Pictus would be so worthwhile for students of both languages.
