Classical Language Workshops

Koine Greek Reading Group

Renaissance Latin Reading Group

This weekly reading group meets on Mondays from 5:00 – 6:00 pm, and is open to students of all levels of Ancient Greek who want to read Biblical and Patristic texts in their original language. Professor Jay Treat of the Department of Religious Studies prepares the readings and coaches the translating. A light dinner will also be provided!  If you would like to receive more information or would like to register, please email Philippe Becker at

Starting September 14th. This workshop convenes graduate students and scholars of the Penn community in an informal, convivial setting to build our skills of translation and paleography and to enjoy reading post-classical Latin texts together. This semester we will be starting with Boccaccio’s compendium, De Mulieribus Claris. The workshop is moderated by Professor Ann Moyer of the History Department, and meets (almost) every Friday from 12-1pm in College Hall 319B.  Light lunch refreshments — if you notify us that you’re coming.  For more information, please contact Daniel Cheely (
