9781461146827: Learn to Write the Medieval Greek Minuscule Script: A step-by-step approach to reading and writing the Byzantine cursive hands

This workbook teaches you to read and write the striking calligraphic script found in medieval Greek documents. You will practice a variety of hands representing more than a thousand years of scribal tradition. Learn the details of writing Medieval Greek in manageable steps. Write individual letters, build syllables with diacritics and ligatures, create words and sentences and read texts written in the style of original manuscripts, including New Testament manuscripts, the Iliad and other ancient works. Build and test your knowledge with carefully selected examples, numerous character copy pages and ten practice exercises. Copy pages turn your attention to the shape and composition of individual letters and diacritics. Through examples and copy exercises, the course provides crucial exposure to the wide range of ligatures found in early and late minuscule hands. The workbook is supplemented by a short pronunciation guide, answers to the exercises and a brief index. Previous experience writing the Greek alphabet, diacritics and basic words is recommended. The workbook is balanced and approachable, and will appeal to enthusiasts of Greek scripts as well as students with an interest in the Greek alphabet, Medieval Greek calligraphy & scribal arts, Greek manuscripts (including Christian manuscripts, New Testament minuscules & Greek classics), Hellenic linguistics and medieval languages.
