Description

Constantine Lascaris (1434–1501) was a well-known Greek grammarian and teacher. His Erotemata (literally, “questions”) was first published in Milan in 1476. Aldus added his own Latin translation to this edition, the first dated publication of the Aldine Press. The book consists of a brief grammar followed by familiar passages of text (for example, the Lord’s Prayer and the Ave Maria) interleaved in Greek and Latin, so that students familiar with the Latin language could learn Greek through parallel reading. Publishing texts with interleaved translations remains a pedagogical approach to teaching languages today.
