This volume provides an authoritative survey of Greek and Roman education above the primary school level from the fourth century B.C onwards. Special attention is given to the teaching of philosophy, and there are also chapters on the liberal arts, in particular grammar and rhetoric, and on professional education. School organization, teaching methods and the impact of Christianity and the Church as an educational institution are all discussed. The picture that emerges is one of an established educational system which continued for centuries with little change and survived even the challenge of Christianity.
