Do you know an available fac-simile edition of Moschopoulos' or
Chrysoloras' Erotemata or anyone's grammar comparable? I am interested
in compiling a Greek Primer inspired to Humanistic Grammatical methods.
Does anyone know about any already done modern Greek grammar of this
Friendly yours

HUMANIST readers:

Can any reader of this list direct me to the source of a quote,
purported to be from Goethe?

"In der Beschraenkung zeigt sich erst der Meister"

("The master appears first through curtailment.")

This is quoted by the English literary critic Walter Pater, but without
citing its source. (I've quoted it from him a number of times; finally
asked me for its original location.)

Any perspectives on translating the line would also be welcome. Should
it be "only the master"...? Is there an overlapping of senses?
As for "distance learning," I am presently trying to curtail some
thoughts for the list.

Best regards,
