A programme of new translations from Byzantine religious poetry
Selected and introduced by C. A. Trypanis
Professor of Byzantine and Modern Greek In the University of Oxford
Greek poetry, for most people, means the poetry of ancient Greece-and perhaps the poetry being written in Greece today. But Greece means Byzantium as well, and the civilisation that triumphed in the visual arts also created its own literary form. This programme seeks to present, by means of translation and commentary, the development of Byzantine religious poetry from the late fourth to the fifteenth century, and to show how poets working within a stiff dogmatic framework were able to find their own distinctive accents.
The versions by G. S. Fraser , Ian Scott-Kilvert lain Fletcher, Peter Green Peter Levy , C. A. Trypanis
Readers: V. C. Clinton-Baddeley and Denis McCarthy

Talk by Margery Perham. C.B.E.
Fellow of Nuffield College,
Oxford Miss Perham believes the Report of this Commission, published in June, to be revolutionary in that it is highly critical of policies and achievements in the past. She examines some of Its basic assumptions, particularly with regard to freedom as against paternalism; and such main issues as the political control of economic action in the changing circumstances of modern Africa.
