Research seminars – The Norwegian Institute of Philology (PHI)
The Norwegian Institute of Philology organises weekly philological research seminars where we read ancient and classical texts in a number of languages. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or if you are interested in participating. If you want to register as a student, follow the information on the main seminar page. Seminars are included in programs where students are awarded between 30 and 60 ECTS credits in each program, based on a written assignment (essay/term paper).
SEMINAR HØSTEN 2020:
Eusebius of Caesarea's Chronikon in Armenian
In this seminar we read the Chronikon of Eusebius of Caesarea, originally written in Greek in the early fourth century, but only preserved in full in Armenian. The second part of the book, the Chronographic tables, was also translated into Latin by Jerome, and had significant impact on Western historiography. We read from the edition of J. B. Aucher (Venice 1818). Participants need only a basic knowledge of Armenian.
