This module will address the recent scholarly debate about how violent the ancient Greeks were. While some scholars suggest that the growth of the law courts in classical Athens brought about a change in cultural values and attitudes towards violence, others find that the Athenian appetite for violence was not diminished by the rise of the law courts. Students will consider evidence from a variety of sources in order to assess what Athenian cultural norms were and whether/how they were transgressed.
