Studying in Athens – or what Romans thought they should see of Greece

Birgitta Hoffmann

The Romans saw Greece as a highly cultured land, the home of philosophy, rhetoric, Homer, and art, but also a land of witch craft and some very strange habits.

By the late Republic spending time in Athens perfecting your language skills and learning Greek philosophy had led to Athens becoming for a while the ‘finishing school of Rome’s elite’ and by the second century Pausanias saw a market for writing one of the earliest travel guides to Greece.

This dayschool is going to look at the places Romans hoped to see and discuss why.

 Dayschool: Saturday, 21 September 2024      Time: 11.00– 16.00 GMT
