The much-anticipated Cambridge Greek Lexicon will be published by Cambridge University Press (CUP) on 22nd April 2021.

Written by an editorial team based in the Faculty, the Cambridge Greek Lexicon, which has been twenty years in the making, covers the most widely read ancient literary texts, from Homer to the Hellenistic poets, the later historians, and the New Testament Gospels and Acts of the Apostles.

Aimed primarily at students, but also designed to be of interest to scholars, the editors have systematically re-examined the source material and made use of the most recent textual and philological scholarship. The editorial team led by Professor James Diggle, Emeritus Professor of Greek and Latin, consisted of Dr Bruce Fraser, Dr Patrick James, Dr Oliver Simkin, Dr Anne Thompson, and Mr Simon Westripp.  The Cambridge Greek Lexicon project would not have been possible without the generous support of our donors.

Join us at 6pm on Thursday 6 May 2021 as we celebrate this significant milestone. Editor-in-Chief Professor James Diggle will detail the background and highlights of the project.  James will be joined by five colleagues who will take an in-depth look at the resonance for their work of five individual Greek words.  This event will be hosted on Zoom webinar.  Register for your free ticket.
