Septuagint Greek Reading Group
The Septuagint Reading Group will continue to meet in second semester 2018. The first meeting will be at 11 am to 12 noon on Monday 23 July in Meeting Room 502 in the west wing of Arts West (Building 148) on the main campus of the University of Melbourne. The single elevator on the south side of West Wing provides the easiest access.
After consideration of several Books in the Septuagint, it has been decided that we shall begin to read the Book of Genesis. Downloaded copies of chapter 1 will be provided at the first meeting. Subsequently a sufficient number of further chapters will be provided to get us to the end of semester. Anyone who has studied ancient Greek (Classical or Biblical) for one year or more should be able to cope satisfactorily. After the first week, some degree of preparation of the text will be helpful. And anyone who wants to try out as an auditor without this preparation will be welcome to do so.
Potential readers should reply by email to Mr Darryl Palmer (Senior Fellow in Classics).
