With rigorous instruction in topics ranging from grammar, music, and poetry to numeracy and religious ritual, formal systems of education developed for citizen classes during Greek and Roman antiquity still resonate in the twenty-first-century world. A Companion to Ancient Education presents the most up-to-date scholarship relating to the rise and spread of educational practices and theories in the Greek and Roman world from the seventh century BCE to the fifth century CE. Featuring contributions from leading international scholars in the field, essays trace the roots of classical education while utilizing the latest research findings and applying innovative historical syntheses to such topics as the development of educational institutions, citizen and non-citizen training, women’s education, materials and methods for instruction, apprentice and craft learning, and more. Offering thought-provoking reassessments of the breadth and purposes of education in ancient society, readings also shed important new light on the complexity of the ancient phenomena of education in Greece and Rome—while also revealing the debts and affinities of educational practice to those of other ancient civilizations. Rooted in the latest scholarship, A Companion to Ancient Education sets a new standard in our understanding and appreciation of teaching and learning in Greco-Roman society.
