  • About

    Zacharias is a Cretan by birth and a New Yorker by principle. He received his BA in Classics from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in 2010. He is writing his dissertation on Cervantes'  main opponent, Heliodorus, examining how the last miracle of classical literature, the Aethiopica, transformed Christian and Neo-platonic doctrines of “morality”.  He has written papers on Apuleius and his concept of anxiety, Petronius and the liminal experience, Dictys's literary merit in the Ephemeris Belli Troiani, and Nietzsche’s understanding of Ancient Rhetoric. He is currently trying to understand Aesop and Plotinus.

    He loves the Norwegian seas, the sun, skydiving, skyscrapers, and fast motorbikes, while he fears typos and obscurity. He believes that good ideas are clear ideas.
