My apologies, Joe! Should I re-upload the file, or will Kikisaulite be able to sort it out from here?

I bet Kikisaulite can change the name of that file herself. Things get messy though, if all sections are submitted without following the same naming convention.

Thanks again..!!

Yes, that was sloppy on my part. Live and learn! :)

Ireneaus originally wrote this book in some form of ancient Greek, so if you can find a pronciation guide online that might help. I am assuming that you are referring to the names of the various Aeons and emminations, which is the most troublesome reading. When I read this stuff, I do my best to keep my pronounciation reasonably close and consistent, and go off what I know from previous readings, but the truth is I am just faking it. There are lots of pronounciation guides online for Hellenistic Greek (which all the names of the Aeons are transliterations of), but to be perfectly honest, I don't have the patience to slog through all that. I think there might even be some easy charts and guides on Wikipedia. In informal readings such as this though - I don't know if strict pronouciations are really even adhered to by everybody, because I hear old Greek words pronounced all sorts of different ways - and this by scholars and professors - so I figure, why should I worry about it??

In general though, I usually stress the second sylabble in words of 3 sylabbles or more (AnTHROpos, ProPATor, Monogenes = Mo-NAW-gen-ees, etc..), make sure there are no silent sylabbles (Sige is pronounced seh-GEE), round out the dipthongs (Aeon is pronounced EYE-own), and sound out all sylabbles (Autophyes is pronounced ow-to-PHEE-yes.... or at least that is how I pronounce it :? )

If anybody has any better information or advice, feel free to chime in..!!

I suppose that depends on your browser - but on Internet Explorer, you can click the 'back' button. That should do it. Or, you can open the text in a new window. Just right-click 'text to read' and select 'open in new window' or 'open in new tab'.

Hope that helps!!

I did not include footnotes for this reading, but if you want to download the original book off archive.org, you can see them - lots of them are really interesting and helpful. Here is a good one if you are confused about all those strange names for the Aeons, and what they mean:
It may be well to give here the English equivalents of the names of these Æons and their authors. They are as follows: Bythus, Profundity; Proarche, First-Beginning; Propator, First-Father; Ennœa, Idea; Charis, Grace; Sige, Silence; Nous, Intelligence; Aletheia, Truth; Logos, Word; Zoe, Life; Anthropos, Man; Ecclesia, Church; Bythius, Deep; Mixis, Mingling; Ageratos, Undecaying; Henosis, Union; Autophyes, Self-existent; Hedone, Pleasure; Acinetos, Immoveable; Syncrasis, Blending; Monogenes, Only-Begotten; Macaria, Happiness; Paracletus, Advocate; Pistis, Faith; Patricos, Ancestral; Elpis, Hope; Metricos, Metrical; Agape, Love; Ainos, Praise; Synesis, Understanding; Ecclesiasticus, Ecclesiastical; Macariotes, Felicity; Theletos, Desiderated; Sophia, Wisdom.

Joe and reading team: Here is what I try to remember to put in the first post for my ancient Greek and Latin projects:

Readers who would like help pronouncing Greek names may consult the following references:
http://dictionary.reference.com/
http://bartleby.com/65/
Or, consult the new LibriVox Wiki page for pronounciation resources at:
http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/HowToReadGuides_%28pronunciation%2C_reading_footnotes%29

I'm guessing that Ireneus was close enough to the New Testament era to write in the Greek dialect called "Koine", or common (meaning everyone used it) Greek. I don't distinguish between the dialects . . .

My apologies. I've barely managed to start recording over the course of the weeks and I'm just about to start a new job, so I think I should unvolunteer myself for those sections I said I'd do.

Apologies again. Thank you for everyone who does manage to contribute - I really appreciate the effort that people put in to make this happen.

Not a problem - and I appreciate you letting me know. If you are ever able to find time again, come on back..!!
