Early Modern Greek

September 28, 2010

For those who are interested about Medieval Greek literature I have great news. I discovered just today a new web page about the early Modern Greek. On the last post I was delighted to read an announcement about the launch of 284 digitised manuscripts drawn from Additional and Harley manuscript collections.

The Theodore Psalter

One can find also the full text of  works of the Medieval Greek Literature, as Erotokritos or the Chronicle of the Morea and many many others of the same kind. In these texts Greek already is a language that is intelligible for the Modern Greeks. That’s why you can call it “Early Modern”.

On the other hand  these texts, thought written in Greek, are strongly influenced by the medieval literature. Greek Medieval literature is not less Medieval than the other ones. Here is a link where you can find all these texts in electronic form.
