Ancient Greece has given us a significant linguistic, literary and cultural heritage. Studying ancient Greek language, thought and culture is as valuable as ever.

The intellectual culture of Ancient Greece is at the root of European learning. The Greeks invented history, philosophy, political science, physics and theoretical mathematics. Ancient Greek is the language of the New Testament, and the Hebrew Bible was translated into ancient Greek as early as the third century BC.
