Cursusdoelen
Acquiring basic skills in either Greek or Latin epigraphy:
  • reading practice,
  • translations,
  • close reading,
  • historical interpretation;
  • use of apparatus
Inhoud
A large part of the primary source material for ancient historians consists of inscriptions: texts of varying length inscribed in durable material – most often stone, but also bronze, wood, pottery sherds and various other objects. These texts are written in either Greek or Latin, often in a local dialect, very rarely bilingual. Inscriptions are the archives of the ancient world, requiring not only language skills but also familiarity with the technical aspects of this evidence to be used properly. Every ancient historian needs to acquire basic knowledge and skills how to read and use inscriptions. The course is obligatory for RM students in Ancient Studies and prepares students for participation in the epigraphy courses of the Dutch Graduate School OIKOS. It is offered in two, separate groups, one for Greek, one for Latin epigraphy.

The entrance requirements for Exchange Students will be checked by the International Office and the Programme coordinator. Acceptance is not self-evident.
