- Course Information
Our course focuses on issues such as:
- What can Greek art teach us about the religion, society, history and politics of the ancient Greeks?
- Why does Homer’s Odyssey still inspire modern culture and literature, despite being thousands of years old?
- What was it to be a hero in the ancient world? • What role did religion play in the lives of the Ancient Greeks?
- How did philosophical thinking start to challenge the concept of the Greek Gods? The influence of the classical world is all around us. We are all familiar with Greek and Roman myths and legends – Hollywood loves stories like the fall of Troy– but the influence of these two cultures on our everyday lives is wider than that.
