Greek thinkers, that the world received the Christian religion. The study of Greek literature is therefore a proper element in a liberal education. The Greek language, naturally flexible and rich in poetical words, becomes in the hands of the great writers a medium of unequalled force, clearness, and adaptability, able to express as well the highest aspirations of the poet as the subtlest shades of philosophical argument or the most abstruse technicalities. The books of Greece have passed the critical selection of the ages, and the student, unencumbered by masses of inferior material, can approach the works of acknowledged masters, the true fountain-head of European culture. Note. The dates of many Greek authors being uncertain, the approximate time of their activity, indicated by floruit circa (fl. c.), is all that can be given. The bibliography is only a limited selection, and is confined to books needing no knowledge of Greek. ATJTHOEITIES ABBOT, E. V. Hellenica: Essays on Greek Poetry and Philosophy. BUTCHEB, S. R.
