Highlighted Theme

Tema destacado 2019

Greek classics: Why its legacy remains relevant 2,500 years later?

2020 will be a very special year—2,500 years have elapsed since the Greeks resisted the second, and last, Persian invasion. The alliance of the Greek polis put the seeds that allowed Plato, Aristotle, and many other great thinkers, to create and develop a unique worldview based on the notion of the koinôn (κοινόν). Their new way of thinking about the world has played a seminal role in the shaping of today’s societies. The aim of this Conference is to consider the example of Ancient Greek philosophers and rethink the world, 2,500 years later. We believe that Greek Classics are the mirror where we should look at—they must be the path of light for our free societies. Thus, as inheritors of such a great legacy and as owners of all future science, we propose to reflect on this conference around the following thematic axis: “Greek Classics: Why Its Legacy Remains Relevant 2,500 years later?”

.

Subthemes:

  • 2,500 years of the Greek Classics: Polis. Politics. Democracy.
  • 2,500 years of the Greek Classics: Philosophy. Knowledge.
  • 2,500 years of the Greek Classics: History. Memory. Identity.
  • 2,500 years of the Greek Classics: Image. Art. Culture.
  • 2,500 years of the Greek Classics: Texts, Literature, Drama.
  • 2,500 years of the Greek Classics: Environment and Sustainability.
  • 2,500 years of the Greek Classics: Psychology and Self-Awareness.
  • 2,500 years of the Greek Classics: Digital Humanities. Digitization.
  • Europe in crisis. Reflections from Ancient Greece to present-day Europe.
  • Other topics related to the Humanities.

ANCIENT TREASURES TOUR – Greece, May 28 – 31, 2020

To say that ancient Greece was the cradle of Western civilization is nothing new. We don’t need to tell you because, everywhere you look, the ancient Greeks’ world echoes in your own: democracy, science and mathematics, philosophy and ethics, literature and drama, art, architecture, sports –to mention but a few.

What makes the ancient Greek legacy important, however, is that it has been taken up, admired and re-formulated by every culture and every single generation between then and now. This is the very reason that a journey to Greece is meaningful and life-changing. It is more than a fun-in-the-sun vacation, it is more than just a trip; it is like returning to your homeland, fulfilling the everlasting human need of connecting with your roots.

Our expert lecturers will bring ancient Greece to life for you, guiding you around some of the most important UNESCO-listed World Heritage Monuments of Greece as well as other archaeological sites and museums, covering selected time periods spanning from the Late Bronze Age, to Archaic and Classical times to the Venetian rule of Greece. Highlights include Ancient Corinth, Epidaurus, Mycenae, Ancient Olympia, Delphi. It is a full itinerary, but the pace is manageable. Plenty of time is available on the sites and in the museums, allowing opportunity both for adequate exposition by the lecturer and time for further exploration on your own.

This 4-day (3-night) tour includes: transportation by luxury air conditioned bus, expert lecturers, hotel accommodation, breakfast and one meal (lunch) daily.

Participation Cost

The total cost of participation depends on the time you will register.

On the day you register, an advance deposit of 200 Euros is required.

Tour Specifics

May 28
Ancient Corinth and Epidaurus. The site of Ancient Corinth has one of the earliest standing Doric temples on mainland Greece, and a fine museum. Here also lies the so-called Bema, on which Apostle Paul defended himself. Epidaurus, where Asklepios, god of medicine was worshipped, also includes the best-preserved of all ancient Greek theatres. We will spend the night at the seaside town of Tolon.

May 29
Nemea, Mycenae. A great deal of what you will see in the archaeological site of Nemea is owed to Stephen Miller, who has dedicated his life in the excavations of the site since the 1970’s and in the revival of the Nemean Games. You will have the opportunity to be acquainted with the famous Mantinian wine, explained by an enologist as well as taste it in all its possible versions.  Visit the kingdom of mythical Agamemnon. The Mycenaean Megaron was the precursor for the later Archaic and Classical temples of the Greek world.

May 30
Nafplion, Ancient Olympia, Nafpaktos. Visit one of the best preserved Venetian structures in the whole of Greece, situated in the former capital of the First Hellenic Republic, picturesque Nafplion. Could it be that a European writer is honored in a small Greek town? Indeed, the statue of Miguel de Cervantes surprisingly stands near the port of Nafpaktos in order to commemorate the great novelist’s participation into the Battle of Lepanto, in 1571. This sea battle was decisive for putting an end to the Turkish naval supremacy. Nestling in a verdant valley, Ancient Olympia, the Panhellenic sanctuary dedicated to Zeus and birthplace of the Olympic Games, is certainly worth your time.

May 31
Delphi, Arachova. Taste the special traditional Greek cuisine at coastal Itea before entering in a sea of olive trees and reaching Delphi to admire the Sanctuary, perched on the lower slopes of Mount Parnassos. This is where Pythia, the highest priestess of the Temple of Apollo, delivered the most prestigious and authoritative oracles of ancient Greece. Enjoy breathtaking views and shop for traditional products and couleur locale at Arachova, before we make our way back to Athens.

Participation to this trip covers:

  • Accommodation in double room for 3 nights (solo travelers pay supplement)
  • Guided tours by expert lecturers
  • One meal (lunch, no drinks)
  • Transfers
  • Trip leader and attendant

It does not cover:

  • Admission fees to museums and archaeological sites
