From the Vault of Antiquity



This episodic mini-show brings long lost forgotten writings to your 21st century ears. Joe McDonald reads in the original ancient languages along with his translation. Come listen to ancient Greek, Hebrew and even modern Kyrgyz stories and poems given fresh life.





Episode 1 features the writing of Basil of Seleucia with his piece called 'The One on Saint Elijah'.

Joseph McDonald has been studying languages dead and living for about a decade. After reading Greek and playing music in his formative years he moved with his wife to Kyrgyzstan, where he taught English in a rural school and learned Kyrgyz over glasses of fermented horse milk. He traveled in India after his time in Central Asia and eventually made his way to the Bay Area, where he read Hebrew, Greek, and German under the Jesuits in Berkeley. He holds an M.A. in Biblical Languages and is contemplating further study in ancient Semitics and Hebrew poetry.
