Reminder: Medieval Latin and NT Greek Summer School

Enrolments are still open for summer schools in Medieval & Ecclesiastical Latin and New Testament Greek, held at Jane Franklin Hall, University of Tasmania, in January 2020.

1. Medieval Latin: 13-17 January 2020

This course will offer a general introduction to post-classical Latin, poetry and prose, sacred and secular. Some prior knowledge of Latin is recommended. There will be an introduction to palaeography, including an opportunity to handle original manuscripts. 2020 will be the 27th occurrence of this annual event!

2. New Testament Greek: 20-24 January 2020

An intensive course in the koine Greek of the New Testament. We shall read passages from the Epistles and Gospels, as well as the Septuagint and Christian literature of the apostolic age. The course is aimed at beginners, but it is strongly recommended that all learn the Greek alphabet before commencing; exercises will be posted out beforehand to assist in that.

Both January Summer Schools will be held at Jane Franklin Hall (a college of the University of Tasmania), 6 Elboden Street, South Hobart.

The instructor of both courses will be Dr David Daintree. The cost of each school is AU$300. This covers tuition and materials only. It is expected that self-catering accommodation will be available at the college as usual, though arrangements for that should be made directly with the college.

Write to David Daintree directly for further information – dccdain@gmail.com – or call him on +61 (0)408 879 494.
