Who Am I

My name is P. Parthenis. I was born in 1983 in Greece. I’ve studied Ancient Greek and Roman History in the University of Thessaly. During my undergraduate studies I’ve earned 4 annual governmental scholarships and finally graduated in 2004. My post-graduate studies on ancient Christianity and its relationship with the Roman Empire ended in 2006, during which I’ve earned a scholarship by the Onassis Public Benefit Foundation. For the time being, I’m working on my doctorate thesis regarding the early formation of Christian Communities in the Roman Empire.

All this years, ancient Greek has been my greatest love and passion. Most of all, I enjoy teaching this unique language to anyone who is fortunate enough to discover its unparalleled wealth.

My teaching philosophy is quite simple: learning ancient Greek shouldn’t be different than learning any other language – it must be coupled with becoming well-acquainted with the culture, civilization and way of thinking of the persons and societies that used it. This basic guiding principle, along with carefully planned series of online lessons gives you the opportunity to learn ancient Greek or Koine Greek (the language of the New Testament and of the Septuaginta) quite easily.
