  Latin, as the primary historical language of erudition and learning in the West, is the sole gateway into the halls of Western thought and humanistic learning. Without the use of this language, we can hardly know ourselves, and certainly not the road that brought us to the modern day. Murdoch, J. E. (), ‘ Euclides graeco-latinus: a hitherto unknown medieval Latin translation of the Elements made directly from the Greek ’, Harvard Studies in Classical Philology, 71 Murphy, J. J. (), Medieval Rhetoric: A Select Bibliography (Toronto Medieval Bibliographies 3), Toronto.

Later, once Greek had began to find its way back into western learning, medieval scholars did seek out the Greek originals and make translations directly from them rather than via Arabic. The Arabic versions had often passed through three translations - first from Greek to Syriac, then from Syriac to Arabic and finally from Arabic to Latin. Trust me, if you love Euripides (or Plato, or Homer, or the Church Fathers, or whomever) in English, you'll go simply crazy for him in Greek where he's so much better. And he really is that good. Most of them are that good. Next, get a good book: There are a surprising number of textbooks for ancient Greek on the market. Most of them are of.

The starting point generally acknowledged for the revival of Greek studies in the West iswhen the Byzantine Manuel Chrysoloras began to teach Greek in Florence. With his Erotemata, Chrysoloras gave Westerners a tool to learn Greek; the search for the ideal Greek textbook, however, continued even after the publication of the best Byzantine-humanist : Federica Ciccolella.

The Hermeneumata are perhaps the best-known evidence from the medieval West for the study of Greek. They survive in many varying versions, but generally include alphabetised glossaries, lists of words organised by topic, simple texts (such as fables) for reading comprehension, and colloquies: short texts describing everyday life, mostly in dialogue form.
