Course Description

The Greek miracle is the creative genius born from the marriage of clarity of mind (reason) and deep spiritual power. Greek culture illuminated and guided change in a largely brutalized world where nothing had been held so cheap as human life. We will examine Greek society by way of literature, art, and archeology, considering myths, philosophy, and a way of life incorporating study, athletics, banquets, and slavery.
