Αἱ τοῦ Ἡρακλέους αἱρέσεις

Join us on Saturday, July 29th, 2023, for a day of online conversation in ancient Greek! Our theme: the choices of Heracles in the imperial Greek writer Lucian of Samosata. First, we'll discuss Lucian's model, the Choice of Heracles in Xenophon's Memorabilia, in which Heracles as a young man must choose between Virtue and Vice. Second, we'll turn to two of Lucian's own works, the Dream and the Teacher of Rhetoric, in which a young man must make a choice: but in the Dream, the choice is between Sculpture and Paideia, and in the Teacher of Rhetoric, it's between the easy and the hard road to rhetoric. But is Paideia simply an analogue for Virtue? Is the easy road the best road? As so often with Lucian, what seems obvious turns out to be slippery. Our sessions will involve questions of grammar and syntax, in accord with the overall level of the group, as well as literary interpretation. This event is aimed at intermediate to advanced readers of ancient Greek who have at least some prior experience in speaking; ancient Greek will be the sole language used by the facilitator and participants for the duration of the event.
