This course will focus on Biblical Greek and the emergence of a 'common' Greek language (Koinê). We will read excerpts from the Septuagint (the Greek translation of the Hebrew bible), the New Testament, and a variety of texts in order to understand how Greek evolved to become the 'common tongue' of a Hellenized eastern Mediterranean world of Jews, Pagans, Christians, Romans and Greeks.
