Course Content (Syllabus)
In this seminar the special focus (author, work, seminar topic) from Latin prose serves as the starting point for a complex and specialized approach to various aspects of classical philology. Particular attention is paid to the interpretative approach to the text, both through close reading and by emphasis on the evolution of the specific genre, the evaluation of its place in Latin literature and its contribution to generic evolution. For the Spring semester of the 2014-15 acad. year, the following seminars on Latin prose are offered for selection: Seneca, De Ira (Instr. Th. Antoniadis) Titus Livius, Ab urbe condita (Instr. Chr. Tsitsiou) The course requires the energetic participation of the students, who are also required to write a seminar paper, which they present in class.
