A Stream on “Continuity of Culture Between Ancient and Modern Greece”
Stream Leader:

Modern Greece owes much of its present existence to its ancient past. Temples, archaeological sites and museums may come to mind, but few outside the academic community may realize that ancient Greece also influences other aspects of Modern Greek life both in language, and the physical world. The Modern Greek proverbial expression ‘και του πουλιού το γάλα’ meaning ‘the milk of the bird’ indicates that one has everything one needs, including the seemingly impossible. Ancient Greek ὀνιθῶν γάλα, ‘the milk of birds,’ indicates the same thing as the Modern Greek; it appears in ancient texts from the 5th c. BCE into the 4th c. CE. Physical examples are ‘tamata,’ small pressed metal plaques of body part images hung before icons in some Orthodox churches in Greece as the faithful pray for healing; examples are at Aghios Nektarios in Aegina. Similar objects, but of terracotta, were found in ancient temples of Asclepius, the ancient god of healing; examples are in the archaeological museum of ancient Corinth. This stream calls for papers treating any aspects of Modern Greek life that show strong continuity with ancient Greece. The connections may be linguistic, or physical, secular or ecclesiastical.
