Philo, On the Creation, §33

μετὰ δὲ τὴν τοῦ νοητοῦ φωτὸς ἀνάλαμψιν, ὃ πρὸ ἡλίου γέγονεν, ὑπεχώρει τὸ ἀντίπαλον σκότος, διατειχίζοντος ἀπʼ ἀλλήλων αὐτὰ καὶ διιστάντος θεοῦ τοῦ τὰς ἐναντιότητας εὖ εἰδότος καὶ τὴν ἐκ φύσεως αὐτῶν διαμάχην ἵνʼ οὖν μὴ αἰεὶ συμφερόμεναι στασιάζωσι καὶ πόλεμος ἀντʼ εἰρήνης ἐπικρατῇ τὴν ἀκοσμίαν ἐν κ...

Philo, On Creation, II.8: αὐτὸ

Μωυσῆς δὲ καὶ φιλοσοφίας ἐπʼ αὐτὴν φθάσας ἀκρότητα καὶ χρησμοῖς τὰ πολλὰ καὶ συνεκτικώτατα τῶν τῆς φύσεως ἀναδιδαχθεὶς ἔγνω δή, ὅτι ἀναγκαιότατόν ἐστιν ἐν τοῖς οὖσι τὸ μὲν εἶναι δραστήριον αἴτιον, τὸ δὲ παθητόν, καὶ ὅτι τὸ μὲν δραστήριον ὁ τῶν ὅλων νοῦς ἐστιν εἱλικρινέστατος καὶ ἀκραιφνέστατος, κρε...

Re: John Chrysostom, Commentary on Rom. 1:3

LOL. No, sir. I do not read these tomes in one sitting, especially because my current knowledge of Greek doesn't allow it. :) I always appreciate your help. Thank you.

John Chrysostom, Commentary on Rom. 1:3

He notes, οὐ γὰρ περὶ ἀνθρώπου ψιλοῦ, φησὶν, ὁ λόγος ἡμῖν.

Is τὸ here connected with Κατὰ σάρκα, and thus means "the [phrase], Κατὰ σάρκα"? 2. Wha...

Aristotle, Categories, Section 1

I have a general understanding of Aristotle's philosophy, but I want to have a precise understanding of his Greek. So, here's the first line of Categories. Ὁμώνυμα λέγεται ὧν ὄνομα μόνον κοινόν, ὁ δὲ κατὰ τοὔνομα λόγος τῆς οὐσίας ἕτερος... λέγεται - "is called" Ὁμώνυμα = "homonyms" ὄνομα μόνον κοινό...

Re: Cyril of Jerusalem, Προκατήχησις, §3: λευχειμονοῦν

I'm assuming it's a neuter-gendered, singular number participle, but what tense, I am not certain. Again, I ca...

Μήτις ὑμῶν εὑρεθῇ πειράζων τὴν χάριν· μήτις ῥίζα πικρίας ἄνω φύουσα ἐνοχλῇ· μήτις ὑμῶν εἰσέλθῃ λέγων· Ἀφὲς ἴδωμεν τί ποιοῦσιν οἱ πιστοί· εἰσελθὼν ἴδω, ἵνα μάθω τὰ γινόμενα.
