Identifying an indistinct Greek word

On Fred Sanders "Scriptorium Daily" blog there is a an indistinct printed Greek word from Polanus's Axioms. They cannot make it out and I cannot figure out how to upload the gif here. In case anyone would like to give it a shot, the gif is at the bottom of this post: http://scriptoriumdaily.com/pola...

Does an accusative 'mean' this much?

Online Conversational Course?

This is a follow on question from a comment Barry H. made about having been helped by an online conversational class which was only for an hour a week. I'm interested in something like that and wondered if there are any current or soon to be held. Especially I would like to ask all those with such e...

Re: In Acts 13:48 why the [effective] pluperfect?

Acts 13:48 ἀκούοντα δὲ τὰ ἔθνη ἔχαιρον καὶ ἐδόξαζον τὸν λόγον τοῦ θεοῦ, καὶ ἐπίστευσαν ὅσοι ἦσαν τεταγμένοι εἰς ζωὴν αἰώνιον· From what I have read using a perfect links the effect to the event described. Is that what you mean, Mike, when using the word "persistent' or are you referring to something...

News in Ancient Greek

I've been having fun with these news articles. It is a nice additional way of internalising basic sentence structures and vocabulary. Since we generally already know these news topics, it is easier to work with the context and intuit the meaning of unfamiliar words.

online Basil the Great Oration on the Holy Spirit

Χαιρε. I could not find Basil's "On the Holy Spirit" on TLG or anywhere else. I managed to find a Modern Greek version. Does anyone know of a link to a (preferably) unicode original Greek text? Many thanks...

Re: Translating Origen's harder section

Thanks Stirling here it is as a reflexive and the infinive (English-ed as a gerund). Barry saw the genitive in the second sentence as "of comparison' So putting together the two sentences this is what I come up with. What do you think? Φαμὲν τὸ μικρότερον περὶ αὐτοῦ λέγειν τοῦ Χριστοῦ· (19) μικρότερ...
