Greek and Roman Education

Front Cover
Bloomsbury Academic, Mar 31, 2011 - Education - 88 pages

In this volume Robin Barrow traces ancient education from the time of Homeric poems to the age of St. Augustine. Without minimising differences between educational practice of particular periods or places, the author stresses similarities and common origins and relates ancient ideas on education tour own. He uses the evidence of a wide range of ancient authors who are extensively quoted.
