Pieter Jacobus Conradie is one of the few Afrikaans-speaking male South African Classicists who came to the discipline because of love for the Classics and not because of a calling to the ministry. That is, he did not discover Greek at university when starting theological studies, but was already inspired at school by his Latin teacher to a life-long love affair with the ancient world. It was during Piet's stint at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands that this love affair found a new direction: Greek mythology as it was told and retold in dramatic form, not only by the ancients, but as it still is today, and even in modern African theatre.
