History of the Greco Roman World (1,998 Books)


The Greco-Roman world, Greco-Roman culture, or the term Greco-Roman (pronounced /?gr?ko?'ro?m?n/ or /?gr?k?'ro?m?n/; spelt Graeco-Roman in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth), when used as an adjective, as understood by modern scholars and writers, refers to those geographical regions and countries that culturally (and so historically) were directly, protractedly and intimately influenced by the language, culture, government and religion of the ancient Greeks and Romans. In exact terms the area refers to the 'Mediterranean world', the extensive tracts of land centered on the Mediterranean and Black Sea basins, the 'swimming-pool and spa' of the Greeks and Romans, i.e. one wherein the cultural perceptions, ideas and sensitivities of these peoples were dominant.

Augustine : Confessions

By: Albert C. Outler

Religion and Christian Theology Collection

Excerpt: Like a colossus bestriding two worlds, Augustine stands as the last patristic and the first medieval father of Western Christianity. He gathered together and conserved all the main motifs of Latin Christianity from Tertullian to Ambrose; he appropriated the heritage of Nicene orthodoxy; he was a Chalcedonian before Chalcedon-and he drew all this into an unsystematic synthesis which is still our best mirror of the heart and mind of the Christian community in the ...

The Heroes, Or, Greek Fairy Tales for My Children

By: Charles Kingsley

Some of you have heard already of the old Greeks; and all of you, as you grow up, will hear more and more of them. Those of you who are boys will, perhaps, spend a great deal of time in reading Greek books; and the girls, though they may not learn Greek, will be sure to come across a great many stories taken from Greek history, and to see, I may say every day, things which we should not have had if it had not been for these old Greeks. You can hardly find a well-written ...

The Oration and Panegyric Addressed to Origen

By: Gregory Thaumaturgus

AN excellent [2] thing has silence proved itself in many another person on many an occasion, and at present it befits myself, too, most especially, who with or without purpose may keep the door of my lips, and feel constrained to be silent. For I am unpractised and unskilled [3] in those beautiful and elegant addresses which are spoken or composed in a regular and unbroken [4] train, in select and well-chosen phrases and words; and it may be that I am less apt by nature ...

The Mechanism of the Modern State : A Treatise on the Science and ...

By: Sir John A.R. Marriott

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: The primary purpose of this book is to set forth the actual working of the English Constitution. Its method is mainly analytical; but no one can apprehend the genius of an historical Constitution from mere analysis. I have, therefore, traced the historical evolution of the principal organs of the Body Politic, both as they function in England and in the British Dominions. With constitutional history and political analysis there mingles also a certain amount of p...

By: Philip Schaff

Religion and Christian Theology Collection

Excerpt: A few months after the appearance of the revised edition of this volume, Dr. Bryennios, the learned Metropolitan of Nicomedia, surprised the world by the publication of the now famous Didache, which he had discovered in the Jerusalem Monastery of the Most Holy Sepulchre at Constantinople. This led me, in justice to myself and to my readers, to write an independent supplement under the title: The Oldest Church Manual, called the Teaching of the Twelve Apostles, e...

By: Philip Schaff

Religion and Christian Theology Collection

Excerpt: Encouraged by the favorable reception of my History of the Apostolic Church, I now offer to the public a History of the Primitive Church from the birth of Christ to the reign of Constantine, as an independent and complete work in itself, and at the same time as the first volume of a general history of Christianity, which I hope, with the help of God, to bring down to the present age. The church of the first three centuries, or the ante-Nicene age, possesses a pe...

History of the Christian Church, Volume I : Apostolic Christianity...

By: Philip Schaff

Religious Publication

Preface: As I appear before the public with a new edition of my Church History, I feel more than ever the difficulty and responsibility of a task which is well worthy to occupy the whole time and strength of a long life, and which carries in it its own rich reward. The true historian of Christianity is yet to come. But short as I have fallen of my own ideal, I have done my best, and shall rejoice if my efforts stimulate others to better and more enduring work.
