Presenting the most important texts on Greek and Roman education, both literary and documentary, the Greek and Roman Education Sourcebook explores the complex nature of Greek and Roman education and the way that it developed from place to place. From the earliest sources until the end of the Middle Ages, the book is formatted chronologically, and the material is presented in a way which will enable readers to gain a detailed understanding of the nature of the subject, to place the ancient readings in a meaningful and historic context, and to pursue further research. Including introductory paragraphs and further reading suggestion as well, students will have no need for any other sourcebook on Greek and Roman education.
