Reflections on Greek Civilization and Culture
The Greek language is the language of the nation that gave birth to the most remarkable civilization in human history which began nearly five thousand years ago. Never in the history of the world has any civilization given so much in the realm of art, sculpture, painting, architecture, science, philosophy, mythology, religion, literature, drama, and poetry. It was from Greece that Alexander the Great set out to conquer the world. It was from Greece that the Byzantine emperors erected their magnificent churches and palaces. It was from Greece that St. Paul preached to the "Unknown God". Greece is a land of harmony and contrasts: the Greece of the Parthenon and struggles against the barbarians; the Greece of the gods of Olympus and the Christian God.
Greece is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, located at a most important crossroad in the eastern Mediteranian. Ancient and modern periods alike have fascinated every individual who has ever cultivated an interest in Greek history, culture, and especially the Greek language.
