Join us as we explore Classical Greek using Phaedo by the philosopher Plato.

This day will provide an opportunity for those with New Testament Greek to explore Classical Greek using the text Phaedo by the fifth-century BC philosopher Plato. Documenting Socrates' final hours on earth, the Phaedo sees the philosopher in prison having been sentenced to death by the Athenian state on charges of corrupting the youth and introducing foreign gods. He discourses with his friends on the immortality of the soul, before taking the draught of hemlock. We shall study the portion of the text that describes that final event. The selection is taken from this year's GCSE Greek set-text and will be provided as a print-out. It can be also found with vocabulary and short commentary in the official OCR GCSE anthology here.

When| Saturday 11 February, 10.30am-3.30pm (refreshments will be provided but students are responsible for providing their own lunch)

Where| Alban Room, St Albans Cathedral

Tutor| Anthony Armstrong, Latin and Greek tutor
