About this Study Course

Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of ancient Greek literature and its profound influence on language, literature, and culture. Delve into the heart of classical philologies, where the vibrant narratives of Greek and Latin antiquity come to life. Our program goes beyond mere exploration; it’s a journey through the annals of history, philosophy, religion, and mythology.

From the dawn of civilization to the present day, our discourse with the ancients continues to shape our understanding of the world. Through seminal texts and historical contexts, we unravel the timeless wisdom encapsulated in ancient Greek literature. Our curriculum demands a solid foundation in Greek/Latin, essential for translating and deciphering the profound insights of antiquity.


At the University of Bonn, our research extends beyond the pages of ancient texts to explore philological/editorial activities and the reception history of Greek and Latin works. We bridge the gap between past and present by applying modern literary theories to historical texts, offering students a dynamic and interdisciplinary learning experience.
