The Ancient City: A Study of the Religion, Laws, and Institutions of Greece and Rome by Fustel de Coulanges
Dear Agora Foundation Free Community Seminar Series Attendee,
This Thursday, December 9, 12:00-1:30PM PDT will be the next installment of our Free Online Community Seminar Series – The Ancient City.
The Ancient City (La Cité antique), published in 1864, is the most famous book of the French historian Numa Denis Fustel de Coulanges. Based on texts of ancient historians and poets, the author investigates the origins of the most archaic institutions of Greek and Roman society. He warns of the error that lies in examining the habits of ancient people with reference to those of today, when it is necessary to avoid our biases and study ancient peoples in the light of the facts. Please join us as we conclude this thought-provoking work.
The December 9 reading will be: Book Five – Conclusion (pages 315-342). Click here to downloadClick here for the book endnotes.
