To understand Christian history and Western Civilization, one must understand Greek history.

All four gospels were composed in Greek. The empire Alexander conquered and the culture his followers conveyed became the Roman territories in which Christianity first spread. Ancient Greek philosophers, particularly Aristotle, bequeathed to Christian theology a framework and method that profoundly shaped our faith down through the ages.

Now, you are invited to join award-winning historian Christopher Bellitto on this gripping journey through centuries of Greek history.

Ancient Greece is one of the most vital topics in history, and its influence is undeniable on Western philosophy, theology, and civilization. However, we often talk about ancient Greece and without really being able to place it in place, time, and context. Now, you can discover the fascinating legacy of ancient Greece through entertaining and enlightening lectures.

You’ll begin by exploring how ancient Greece fits on a broad canvas of world history, geography, and chronology viewed from a wide-angle lens. You will move forward in time, stopping often to explore closely important moments, topics, and themes. You will cover the most essential events in ancient Greece as you travel through centuries of history. Along the way, you will gain a level of understanding that will help you better understand the factors that so influenced our theology, democracy, and civilization.

You don’t want to miss this essential and expertly taught course.

Spring Survey: April 2017
History as taught by the gifted,funny,interesting teacher that can bring a subject to life. Review by Mark S. Salerno,Madison,Wi USA (Posted on 4/9/2017)
Professor Bellitto is easy to listen to and has a wealth of historical knowledge.
Professor Bellitto's course is an excellent short survey on Ancient Greece. Nearly all the high points have been addressed. It is a short secular course and the influence of Greek philosophy on Catholic theology is not mentioned. I am sure that could be a course in itself. Professor Bellitto is easy to listen to and has a wealth of historical knowledge. Who would have thought that Sparta was the home of the most liberated women and the best constitution in ancient Greece? As always, wait until it goes on sale but know your money will be well spent.
