Chariton's Callirhoe (Video/Audio): Koine Greek Cartoon of Ancient Greek Novel

Updated: Jan 16, 2019

Many students of Biblical Greek recognize that it is important to study other forms of Greek outside of the New Testament. One of the most famous works from the same period is Chariton's Callirhoe, a first-century CE romance novel set several centuries before the date of the author.

I have just recently completed a two-minute cartoon (no animation, but slide-by-slide storyboard format) with Koine Greek narration verbatim of the introductory sections of Chariton's novel.

You can navigate to the video from the main page under 'Video Resources' > 'Second Temple Period' > 'Chariton' or click the link below:

I have never quite seen anything like this for extra-biblical Koine material and I am very excited to make it available. I would love to hear any comments you have on the video or any suggestions for future videos to do in this way.

The longer passage (all of Book 1.1) can be accessed as (only) audio here:
