The Glory That Was Greece: A Survey of Hellenic Culture and Civilization


J. C. Stobart

Series: Focus on Civilizations and Cultures
BISAC: HIS002010

“Greece” and “Greek” mean different things to different people. The historian, of course, will inform us that all Western civilisation has Greece for its mother. The author aims to throw some fresh light upon the secret of that people’s greatness. It cannot be done by studying their history only. This book looks at the literature, statues and temples, their coins, vases, and pictures, their laws and governments, their ceremonies and amusements, their philosophy and religion.
