Description

Translating the Scriptures into Modern Greek is the fascinating story of the various attempts made by patriarchs, priests and laypersons to have the translation of the Holy Scriptures accepted side by side with the original text in the Orthodox Church. The efforts began in the seventeenth century and have continued in the present century. The translation question, however, was complicated by the inclusion of a number of non-religious factors: nationalism, politics, linguistic theories, national pride, etc. Thus it remains an open question until the present day.
