The City - An Itinerary from Classical Past to Future online course at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens aims to acquaint participants with the "core" of classical civilization, which is the foundation of western culture, through monuments by introducing the concepts of the ideal citizen, democracy, and philosophical thought as reflected in ancient Greek religion.


Classical Greece is considered to be the influential culture which is linked with the foundation of modern Western culture and stands as the substructure of Western civilization. A great number of ideas and practices that were conceived and elaborated during the Classical era, continue to play an important role in modern life. 

Vases, sculptures, written sources and other archaeological finds were the ultimate source that provided all the stages of their life and a fully detailed description of the ancient Greek citizen and that seems to be just one out of many reasons to find the ancient Greek culture so mesmerizing.

Through the The City - An Itinerary from Classical Past to Future course at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, the participant can familiarize with the development and structure of ancient Greek life in coherent units, namely the city-state, with the birth of democracy and how it was applied to the existing regime and at last with the creation of classical civilization. All of the above will be analyzed further and in detail in this online course part of the Arts and Culture category. After successfully completing the lessons, the participant will receive a training certificate.
