English | MP3 | 1 GB
an impressive and rare opportunity to understand the two dominant cultures of the ancient Mediterranean world in relation to one another – a relationship that has virtually no parallel in world history. Robert Garland shows you how these two very different cultures intersected, coincided, and at times, collided.
You’ll discover the extraordinary culture that we call Greco-Roman: a unique fusion of civilizations that encompasses statecraft, mythology, language, philosophy, fine arts, architecture, science, and much else. Who were the Greeks and the Romans? How did they organize their societies? How did they interact?
You’ll delight in the variety of sources – literature, archaeology, the visual arts, coinage, inscriptions – that Professor Garland draws upon to assemble a fascinating and complex picture of these two great civilizations. And you’ll appreciate how he keeps Greece and Rome focused on how this material affects us today.
