"The First Thousand Years of Greek"

Post by cwconrad » March 31st, 2016, 3:58 pm

Here's an announcement that ought to cheer any who recognize the importance of a textual corpus attesting the linguistic and literary history of Greek over the long centuries preceding and following the NT era:

"Harvard Library commits $50,000 to complete The First Thousand Years of Greek segment of the Open Greek and Latin Project"
See the announcement at http://www.classicslibrarians.org/harva ... n-project/

While $50,000 is nothing to sneeze at, in the academic world it is basically equivalent to hiring one research assistant for a year plus overhead. Maybe less than a full year in places like Cambridge, Mass.
