Join Keith Stone and an intergenerational group of alums, current students, CHS fellows, and HeroesX participants January 10–19, 2020, on a Harvard Alumni Association – Center for Hellenic Studies travel-study tour in Greece! Dr. Stone has just completed a test run of the tour and shares the following photos illustrating the tour’s theme and some of the places to be visited.
Starting in the picturesque seaside town of Nafplio, where the Harvard Center for Hellenic Studies has its headquarters in Greece (CHS Greece), and ending in the great metropolis of Thessaloniki, this travel-study tour takes as its theme the development of scripts and of writing technologies, with a focus on their eventual employment, throughout the ages, in reproducing the sacred texts of the Bible. At museums and historical sites along the way, get up-close views of clay tablets, scrolls, illuminated manuscripts, printing presses, early printed Bibles, and more. While the historical survey will take a generally chronological approach, exceptions will be made in order to take advantage of each city’s offerings. Enjoy Greece’s stunning landscapes, its long history, and its mild winter season.
Space is limited, and special rates apply; register until October 31. Follow this link to register. Should you have any questions, please contact Harvard Alumni Travels at email@example.com or by calling 617-496-0806.
