Event Description

Join us for our very first meeting of Late Antique and Medieval Greek Reading Group! This is an informal reading group open to all members of the wider Princeton Community. We aim to provide a friendly, supportive environment for those interested in reading, translating, and discussing Greek texts from late antiquity into the Middle Ages.

We welcome all readers of ancient and medieval Greek, from beginners to veteran philologists. There is no requirement for anyone to read and/or translate out loud: if you just want to sit in and listen, please feel free to do so! However, we do ask that you RSVP if you intend to attend (so that we can order enough food!)

Our first reading will be John Chrysostom's Ad populum Antiochenum (attached to this email, also available through TLG). We will meet weekly during the term. Subsequent readings will be chosen according to the interests of the group.

Date: Wednesday, 4 October 2023
Time: 5:30 – 6:30 pm
Location: Dickinson Hall, Room 210


The group is organised with the support of the Center for Collaborative History, the Committee for the Study of Late Antiquity, the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies, and the Program in Medieval Studies.

Organisers: David Gyllenhaal (IAS, [email protected]) and Radka Pallová (History, [email protected])
