The Classics on i-Tunes (for free!)
I just got a e-mail from i-Tunes advertising their latest free products. Go here for a free audio-book of Aristotle's Physics, here for an elementary Greek course from Concordia Seminary, here for some random talks on Greek philosophy and culture, or here for a more Roman slant. A lecture series analysing Virgil's Aeneid is here, the history of the Roman empire is here and finally a video series looking at Roman art in the Louvre here.
I've managed to work my way through two i-Tunes lecture series so far. The first was an introduction to the Old Testament by Christine Hayes of Yale Divinity School, the second was the relationship between theology and philosophy in the modern period by a very conservative historian from Reformed Theological Seminary.
I've never been a gadget freak, but i-Tunes is worth getting for these kinds of resources alone!
