Revolution

Lecture no. 9 from the course: Ancient Greek Civilization

Revolution

Taught by Professor Jeremy McInerney | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Solon, the "father of the Athenian constitution," was elected to forestall factional strife. He attempted to formalize rights and privileges based on wealth rather than birth, and did away with debt-bondage. He laid the groundwork for the rule of law in Athens.
