The Arachnion Project

The Arachnion project: NT Greek on the web

Dr Jane Mclarty and David Goode (both of the Faculty of Divinity and Wolfson College) have been awarded a grant of £17,200 from the University's Teaching & Learning Innovation Fund to develop a pre-term online multimedia introduction to New Testament Greek for students.

All first year undergraduates in Theological & Religious Studies must take a scriptural language paper, and New Testament Greek is the most popular option. Until three years ago, the Faculty offered a pre-term language course to first year undergraduates, comprising 10 one hour teaching sessions spread over a week, to give students a head-start in Greek while they had no other commitments to distract them.

Now that this course can no longer be offered, this project will provide an alternative way of introducing students to the basic concepts of Greek grammar before they arrive in Cambridge, through a series of lessons available online. The purpose is to demystify the language, give students greater confidence in their ability to cope with it, and start them on learning some of the fundamentals of the language.

The Arachnion Project is due to be ready in time for students coming up in the academical year 2013-14.
