We’ll spend the majority of our time on close reading of the Greek and discussion of the hymns’ language, style, and structure. In addition, we’ll read all of the hymns in English and survey the issues that they raise, including dating, genre, and the context for performance.

Course Requirements:

Two exams and a writing project (tentative plan)

Intended Audience:

Students who have completed at least one 400-level course in ancient Greek

Class Format:

Two meetings per week for translation and discussion
