Sophocles E.A. - Collected Works

Mar 23, 2010

On the occasion of March 25th, Greek Independence Day, the Hellenic American Union and the "Treasure of the Greek Language" Institute honor an important Greek scholar of the 19th century, Sophocles Evangelinos Apostolides, and present in digital form Sophocles’s complete works…

Sophocles E.A.

Eminent speakers talk about the distinguished professor Sophocles E.A., who taught Ancient, Medieval, and Modern Greek Language and Philology in the U.S.A, mainly at Harvard University, from 1842 until his death in 1883.

The digital disk, entitled Collected Works, contains all his original works as well as testimonies and studies on the professor’s personality and teachings.

With his constant writing and teaching activity, Sophocles E.A. is included among the most eminent Greek Hellenists of the 19th century. Among Sophocles’s major works are the following: Common Phrases and Idioms of the Modern Greek Dialect (1837), which was the first learning method for modern Greek language in the United States, Greek Grammar (1838) for the use of learners, schools, colleges and universities (one of numerous editions published over a period of decades), and A Romaic Grammar, accompanied by a reader with vocabulary (1842).

Panagiotes Ligomenides (Member of the Academy of Athens), Dr. Athanasios Anagnostopoulos (Director of the "Treasure of the Greek Language" Institute), Dr. Nikolaos Kalospyros (Visiting Professor in the University of Athens), Dr. Athanasios Nakas (Professor at the University of Athens), Dr. Georgios Christodoulou (Former Professor of Literature at the University of Athens), and Aikaterini Polymerou-Kamilaki (Director of Hellenic Folklore Research Centre of the Academy of Athens) talk at the presentation.

Leonidas-Phoebus Koskos, Executive Director of the Hellenic American Union, coordinates the discussion.
