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.

All programs are taught by highly experienced professional teachers using an interdisciplinary approach weaving ancient history, philosophy, art, and myth with the study of classical languages and creative writing.

Advance an entire level in three weeks.  80-100 academic hours.  The Polis Institute is offering summer intensive language courses in three locations: Jerusalem, Rome, and Virginia. 

At Polis we bring ancient languages to life.   Our methodology is based on an immersive approach with students roleplaying everyday scenarios.  Initial engagement focuses on following commands, listening, and observing - much like a child learns a first language.  As the student progresses to learning the grammatical structures, they already have an intuitive understanding and their comprehension is greatly enhanced.
