Praise for Georg Curtius

The work of Georg Curtius has marked a great step in forwarding the understanding of the use of the tenses in Greek in particular.

—Jacob Wackernagel, Swiss historical and comparative linguist

Most credit for making grammarians aware of the issue of verbal kind of action goes to Curtius [. . .] The importance of Curtius’ groundbreaking work cannot be overestimated.

Stanley Porter, professor of New Testament, McMaster Divinity College
