While ancient Greece laid the foundations for many institutions of Western culture, a closer look reveals that Greek democracy and athletics bore little resemblance to our modern concepts. Similarly, while the themes of “greatness” and “heroism” were driving forces in ancient Greek thought, their ancient meanings may be a bit different. Learn how Achilles or Odysseus compare to our modern heroes from Dr. Benton Kidd, curator of ancient art at the MU Museum of Art & Archaeology. Adult and teens.
