A little while ago, I began one of my more ambitious projects, a new translation of Hesiod’s Theogony, together with the rich (but hitherto untranslated) ancient scholia, or explanatory comments, which show us how the poem was understood and taught in antiquity.
I am currently fundraising to be able to complete this translation, which will be used by the Hermetic House of Life discord server for their weekly reading group. The text will be placed in the public domain, freely available to be read and reproduced.
The goal is to raise 900$ between ko-fi and Patreon, which would cover the translation of both the Theogony and all the scholia. Should that goal be surpassed, I’ll also start to tackle the ancient Glosses on the Theogony.
Edit: more than 400$ have already been raised! Thank you to everyone who has been contributing!
Edit 2: we’re now at over two thirds! 642.25$, to be exact! Thank you, everyone!
