This is the first half of a year-long introduction to ancient Greek and is designed to prepare students for the reading of Greek texts. Greek 502 concentrates on fifth-century B.C. Attic Greek which was the language of the "golden age" of Athens. The Greek language of that time and place represents a cultural and linguistic central point from which students can pursue their own interests within a wide range of Greek literature which extends from the Homeric epics to the Byzantine era and which includes the archaic, classical, and Hellenistic periods as well as the koine Greek of the New Testament. The purpose of the course is to develop the fundamentals of the language so that these fundamentals can then be applied to whatever area of ancient Greek students wish to pursue.

Particular attention will be paid to the ways that Herodotus made use of the oral traditions of the various Greek poleis and foreign cultures that he visited, and the ways that he adapted these traditions to his own historical purposes.
