June 28, 2015
In ancient Greece, no less than today, the peaceful resolution of conflicts presented numerous challenges. In this illustrated lecture, Edith Hall of King's College, London and the University of Oxford explores Aeschylus's tragedy Eumenides, produced in 458 B.C., and its treatment of the difficult balancing of justice with larger issues of national expedience, security, and entrenched power structures.
