Claude Lancelot (c. 1615 – 1695) was a French Jansenist monk and grammarian.[1] Lancelot was born in Paris. He participated in the creation of the Petites écoles de Port-Royal in May 1638 (then under the spiritual guidance of Jean Duvergier de Hauranne, the abbot of Saint-Cyran). Lancelot was in charge of the education of the duke of Chevreuse and of the princes of Conti.[2]

This book is a methodlogy he developed for the teaching of Greek, specifically focusing on the Attic dialect. It does also give background on the other dialogues as well as an explanation of the poetical license used in modifying Greek language. [3]
