Evie Holmberg joined the Faculties of Hellenic College Holy Cross in 1979, and she has held a joint appointment in both Schools as a professor of Classics and Ecclesiastical Greek since 1993. Since 1977, she has also worked as director of research projects and art conservator at the Fog Art Museum Harvard University, L.A. County Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. Because of the breadth and diversity of her background, she has adopted an interdisciplinary and diachronic approach in her scholarship and teaching. Her work and publications include sample analysis of works of art for the determination of their dating, provenance and history of restoration, translations and commentary of Greek texts of Classical, Hellenistic, Byzantine and Modern Greek origin, as well as diachronic and comparative historical studies. Her latest publications include the following books: Venizelos’ Comments on Thucydides’ History of the Peloponnesian Wars – edited from Venizelos’ hand-written notes, Lessons Unlearned: Venizelos and Thucydides on Propaganda and the Struggle for Power - a historical diachronic comparative study, The Service of the Vespers & The Service of the Orthros – an interlinear translation with an introduction and commentary.
