Ιστορίαι Book 7 by Θουκυδίδης Ολόρου (c. 460 BC - c. 395 BC).

This project is complete and all audio files can be found in the catalogue https://librivox.org/histories-7-book-7-by-thucydides/
Η Ιστορία του Θουκυδίδη εξιστορεί τα πρώτα 20 χρόνια του πολέμου μεταξύ της Αθήνας και της Σπάρτης, που κράτησε από το 431 μέχρι το 404 π.Χ. και είναι γνωστός ως Πελοποννησιακός Πόλεμος. Είναι έργο ζωής ενός καλλιεργημένου, ευσυνείδητου και δραστήριου ανθρώπου, που προσφέρει μια διεισδυτική ματιά στα γεγονότα της εποχής του και την ανθρώπινη φύση.
Το αρχαίο κείμενο διαβασμένο με σύγχρονη νεοελληνική προφορά. Βιβλίο 7 από τα 8.

Thucydides' Histories is the history of the first 20 years of the war between Athens and Sparta, which lasted from 431 until 404 B.C., also known as the Peloponnesian War. It is the life's work of a very sophisticated, efficient and active man which gives us a deep insight to the occurences of his time and human nature. ( )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): volume 1 (containing books 1-4) : http://archive.org/details/thucydideshisto01hudegoog
    volume 2 (containing books 5-8) : http://archive.org/details/thucydideshisto00hudegoog
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): special



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi olorou! I've started us with 10 sections and we can add more later on as we go. You can change the "Sections ##-##" in the Title name in the Magic Window for each recording as you upload them.

Enjoy the project! :D

PL OK! :9:
Just a heads up on the volume which dropped down again. Still OK, take care not to go any lower, and section 1 is closer to the ideal volume, if you can aim at those levels. ;)

It left a queer feeling reading this passage. It's an epistle of the city's executive general, on the verge of death turning to his countrymen as his authority, not his superiors. The words of a man at the end of his wits and resources, in dire need of help. The tragic attempt of man to escape his predicament.

PL OK! I can't say I understood exactly what he wrote, but it was very appropriately read!

Hello! :clap: :clap: The new upload is PL OK!
Does the Magic Window still not work for you? Does it state an error message or what happens?

I'm afraid I still cannot edit the Magic Window.
The message reads: "You don't have permissions for this area."
Is there some procedure I ought to follow by any chance?
I haven't been around for a while ...

The Magic Window needs a different password. If you are already signed in with the librivox password for the uploader, it will say that you don't have permission for the MW. In that case, you sign out and sign in again with your own username and password. If you don't remember your password, I think you can set a new one: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=BC%27s:_How_to_update_the_Magic_Window#Accessing_the_System_.E2.80.93_First_Time_Login
