The Aims of this Study

This book presents the general features of quite a small Greek corpus (around 400 texts) from Finland and some features and texts of the other Nordic Greek corpora in general for an international audience. Compared to the central European material, especially the Greek texts written in Germany, the Turku Greek Corpus contains mostly short and conventional Greek texts. However, this corpus can function as a comparison material for larger corpora. Furthermore, although the quality of these texts might leave a lot to be desired, the Turku Greek Corpus is part of a larger, still understudied, phenomenon, the Humanist Greek culture. This book aims to justify the use of the term Humanist Greek and to delimit its use in the early modern period and ending with the coming of the era of Neohumanismus.
