The essays in this selection explore the roots of classicism in 5th century B.C. Greece. The articles are based on The Greeks Institute, a series of lectures presented to secondary school teachers in the Bridgeport Public Schools during the spring of 1989. Co-sponsored by the Connecticut Humanities Council, Sacred Heart University, and the Bridgeport Public Schools, the purpose of the institute has been to provide teachers with an interdisciplinary exploration of classical Greece for the purposes of professional enrichment and curriculum development. The institute will culminate with teachers and their students attending The Greeks, a lecture/performance presented by the Humanities Touring Group that brings the glories of classical Greece to life on the stage.

The essays in this collection, drawn from the disciplines of art and architecture, history, literature and drama, philosophy, and religious studies, explore the origins, dominant manifestations, and influence of the Greek classical phenomenon.
