Re: Creating a "Reader's" Edition

Well, one issue that I need to resolve right away is the copyright status of the Greek texts themselves. I mean, I can't just copy-paste text from TLG or Perseus into a Word document, can I? Where would I find non-copyrighted Greek text?

Re: Preparing for Patristic Greek

Thanks, Dr. Decker. I would follow your recommendation, but I already read through your reader sometime in the last few years. I especially appreciated the N-C Creed. By the way, I'm thinking of creating "reader's" editions of texts I read as I go, so I would love your input on this thread: http://w...

Creating a "Reader's" Edition

I'm interested in creating "reader's" editions of Greek texts. For example, I'm reading through the Epistle to Diognetus right now. I have to look up uncommon vocabulary and difficult constructions as I go, so I may as well record that information in a visually appealing, accessible format. Does any...

Re: Suggestion - Latest Posts

Thanks. It's all there, I just never noticed it. I guess I'm used to big, visually prominent boxes.

Suggestion - Latest Posts

I have a suggestion that I believe would greatly increase the accessibility of the forum, especially for those who really appreciated the email list format. If there were a section on the home page that listed the 10 most recently posted/commented threads, or all new threads/comments within the last...

Chrysostom on Interpretation

This bit comes from Chrysostom's commentary on Galatians . I thought it might interest some readers. Below I have a few questions and comments. Τοῦτο τοίνυν ποιῶμεν. Οὐδὲ γὰρ δεῖ τὰ ῥήματα γυμνὰ ἐξετάζειν, ἐπεὶ πολλὰ ἕψεται τὰ ἁμαρτήματα· οὐδὲ τὴν λέξιν καθ' ἑαυτὴν βασανίζειν, ἀλλὰ τῇ διανοίᾳ προσέχ...

Re: Passive Imperative

Two (sets of) questions. First, Carl, did you mean that all m/p imperatives are really middle, or just the ones I listed? Second, concerning Eph 5.18, I had considered the datives to be expressing agency (metaphorically for οινω), but if the verbs are indeed middle, would that render the datives as ...

Re: Preparing for Patristic Greek

Thanks, all. James, I haven't decided where to start. I've dabbled with it before. I've read the Didache and some in the Apostolic Fathers. This Fall I'm starting as a research assistant in Villanova University's Augustinian Institute, so I'll be spending plenty of time in Latin. To complement my st...

Preparing for Patristic Greek

I've been studying NT Greek for several years, and can read most of the NT without difficulty. Now, I'd like to expand to the Greek Fathers. What might I need to know that I don't know already? For example, is there Attic morphology, or do they construct their sentences significantly differently? Is...
