365.00

Lucian of Samosata (c. 125 – after 180) was a hellenised Syrian satirist, rhetorician and pamphleteer who is best known for his characteristic tongue-in-cheek style, with which he frequently ridiculed superstition, religious practices, and belief in the paranormal. Although his native language was probably Syriac, all of his extant works are written entirely in ancient Greek (mostly in the Attic Greek dialect popular during the Second Sophistic period).

The Dialogues of the Dead is a collection of thirty dialogic moments in the form of Lucian’s Divine Dialogues and Company Dialogues, and equally famous for them, because the Dialogues of the Dead have become the model for a special literary genre with the same name.

Konstantinos Vardalachos (Kythira, 1753/55 -1830) was a Greek scholar, originally from Chios, author of a multitude of teaching manuals in the spirit of European Enlightenment. He was a very good connoisseur of the positive sciences, but also of ancient Greek literature. The breadth of his knowledge was reflected in the didactic books he compiled, contributing in this way to the development of Greek education of his time and to the transmission of European modern theories and scientific ideas in the area of ​​Hellenism in the Ottoman Empire
