Pericles

Lecture no. 12 from the course: Famous Greeks

 Pericles

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

Along with Lincoln and Churchill, Pericles (490–429 B.C.) is one of history's three greatest democratic statesmen. Why does he decide to lead his country into the great war with Sparta? This lecture and the three that follow paint a portrait of Pericles and his age that is quite different from the one found in most histories.
