Talk by John Mavrogordato
Reader, Colin Golby
The Afterlife depicted in modern Greek folk songs is set in the gloomy underworld of Homer: good and bad alike can expect only a shadowy survival after death, and there is no trace of the rewards and punishments of a Christian Heaven and Hell. Professor Mavrogordato illustrates this pagan survival with his own translations of Greek folk songs.
