Ancient Greek Grammar series to the Arabic apologetic of the Coptic church in Youtube !

What a multilingualism that one can find even today in this country, Egypt. Ancient Greek Grammar series to the Arabic apologetic of the Coptic church in Youtube.

Searching the internet for an Arabic content, I found this interesting Youtube learning series. The so-called apologetic team ( most probably related to the Coptic Orthodox church) has streamed - completely in Arabic- an Ancient Greek grammar series. It's very interesting for me to see how this language are taught in this context.

Note: they are pronouncing the Ancient Greek not according to Erasmus' reconstruction, but as the modern-day Greek. Accents play no role also for their pronunciation.

A list of Authors and Titles of "Classical Papers" Academic Journal

Below is the link to a list of Authors and their titles published in Classical Papers journal of Cairo University.  The list covers the period between 1991-2008. Among the papers, written mainly in Arabic but includes  contributions in English and French, many -in my opinion- interdisciplinary treatments of classical receptions not only in  Arabic,  but also in English , French , and even German Literature.
