CHS- Resurrected Summaries

Resurrected Summaries

 Welcome to the page that has been the focus of quite a bit of attention and anticipation. Below, you will find - as they become available- valuable summaries, which I am virtually certain will serve as windows to the classical world; windows, through which, you will see the fruit (though missing from the photo to the left, along with poor Hermes' arm) of academic generosity and an eagerness to learn without which a humble lecture series could never survive. 

Please check back here often as new summaries will be posted in the coming days, weeks and months.  Once the process of sifting through dusty office copy, unlocking of 20-year old hard drives and pulling of files off of now ancient five-inch Macintosh floppy discs is complete,  we hope to give you a taste of 'the grapes' as photo, audio and video files also begin to surface.  Enjoy!
