Φῶς ἱλαρὸν ἁγίας δόξης ἀθανάτου Πατρός, οὐρανίου, ἁγίου, μάκαρος, Ἰησοῦ Χριστέ, ἐλθόντες ἐπὶ τὴν ἡλίου δύσιν, ἰδόντες φῶς ἑσπερινόν, ὑμνοῦμεν Πατέρα, Υἱόν, καὶ ἅγιον Πνεῦμα, Θεόν.

This is a log of my efforts to analyze texts, and in the process learn solid grammar and syntax. This is how I have learned to deal with ancient texts: First I underline the verbs Then I circle the words that introduce secondary sentences Then I find objects, subjects, participles etc. That is a pre...

Re: Best way to start

Oh, those differences are the trouble makers in my case :lol: I don't have a book about that exactly, but the explanation I talked about is more of an interpretation, so that's a big help.
