“I found the Byzantine Greek Summer School of 2005 to be a tremendously enriching experience. Our readings included a wide spectrum of texts (from Romanos the Melode’s kontakia and letters of Michael Psellos to orations of John of Damascus and Photios’ Bibliotheke). Highlights included the additional classes on paleography and instrumenta studiorum, and especially, the individual tutorials with the excellent instructors, Alexander Alexakis and Stratis Papaioannou, which allowed us to unravel the intricacies of texts/authors relevant to each participant’s interests. In addition to having access to the excellent collections of the Gennadius Library, we also took excursions to Thessaloniki, Hosios Loukas, and Mistra—all due compensation for spending an unbearably hot July in Athens.”
