Summer Language Program: Homeric Greek

October 9, 2015
Just as Helen's face launched a thousand ships, this opening line of the Iliad launches its readers into a world both distant and familiar: the world of the Trojan War and its aftermath, as portrayed by Homer. The St. John's College Summer Greek Institute aims to guide its participants on a journey deep into Homer's world, first by developing proficiency in Homeric Greek, and then by applying their newly developed proficiency to a study in Greek of the Iliad and its enduring themes.
