GREECE AND THE WEST
Athens Concert Hall - Megaron Plus Programme
The lecture cycle entitled "Greece and the West" presents aspects of the relations developed over the centuries between the Greeks and the peoples of Europe. At first, in the words of the poet Horace, "Conquered Greece has conquered the brute victor and brought her arts into rustic Latium". However, already during the period of the Roman rule, a reciprocal relationship developed, which, with fluctuations, continues to this day. The speakers focus their research on diverse individual issues and touching upon the history of ideas and culture, attempt to sketch the wider framework of our common cultural heritage.
