Lycurgus

Lecture no. 5 from the course: Famous Greeks

Lycurgus

Taught by Professor J. Rufus Fears | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

The legendary Spartan Lycurgus (c. 776 B.C.) represents a characteristic early Greek figure: the lawgiver who saves his country from civil war and establishes its characteristic political, social, and religious institutions. No such institutions in antiquity were as famous or significant as those of Sparta.

Professor Fears' storytelling style is fabulous, and of course the content of the stories themselves is fascinating. You may find yourself listening to these lectures for hours on end!
