  • Understanding Anger Lecture 1 - The Wrath of Achilles and the Rage of Medea
    This is the first of twelve monthly lectures and discussions in a new series, led by Dr. Gregory B. Sadler at the historic Kingston Public Library. Each of the lectures focuses on a set of perspectives on anger, coming from ancient or medieval texts in literature, philosophy, or religion. The series begins with an examination of understanding of anger articulated in Ancient Greek Epic and Tragedy -- particularly in Homer's Illiad, Euripides' Medea, and Sophocles Ajax. We also discuss anger more broadly, both in our own culture and in that of the Ancient Greeks, and touch on several other epic or tragic works.

  • The Ideas of Socrates
    In this lecture we examine the ideas of Socrates. We look at his exhortation to 'care for your soul', his conviction that knowledge of virtue is necessary to become virtuous, his belief that all evil acts are committed out of ignorance and hence involuntarily, and finally his presumption that committing an injustice is far worse than suffering an injustice.

  • The Acropolis of Athens in ancient Greece - Dimensions and proportions of Parthenon
    This video contains a description of the monumental buildings in the Acropolis. Especially it has very interesting analysis of the proportions and optical refinements of The Parthenon. This monumental work is a peripteral octostyle Doric temple on the Athenian Acropolis dedicated to the goddess Athena, whom the people of Athens considered their patron. Its construction began in 447 and was completed in 438 BC although decoration of the building continued until 432 BC. It is the most important surviving building of Classical Greece, considered the zenith of the Doric order. The construction of The Parthenon, made ​​almost entirely of white marble from Mount Penteli, was initiated by Pericles in thanks to the gods for his victory against the Persians. The architects in charge of the work were Ictino and Calicrates and were, in most cases, under the direction of the architect and great Athenian sculptor Phidias, author of the sculptural decoration and the great statue of Athena Parthenos which was located as the centerpiece of the temple (measuring forty feet high and for its elaboration 1,200 kg of gold were needed).

  • Pompeii: The Last Day (BBC)
    On 24 August AD79, the sleeping giant Mount Vesuvius erupted with horrifying force, destroying the prosperous Roman cities Pompeii and Herculeneum. Their inhabitants were subjected to 24 hours of untold horror. Four million tonnes of pumice, rock and ash rained on the towns, suffocating the life out of the cities, and burying alove those who had been unable to flee. Pompeii - The Last Day recreates that momentous day, and shows first hand the horror of Pompeii's last hours. Factual characters based on historical and forensic evidence unearthed in Pompeii and Herculaneum, as well as extracts from Gauis Plinius Monor's account of the disaster, help bring to life one of the most notorious disasters in history. Using stunning visual effects, the film recreates each stage of the 24 hour eruption and explores the devastating impact on the main characters; Julius Polybius, wealthy baker and aspiring politician; Stephanus, a cloth worker and social climber and his wife Fortunata Celadus the celebrity gladiator; Pliny the elder, in charge of the rescue mission; and, finally, Pliny the younger, who documents the horrors of the tragedy. The highest ever rated history documentary on the BBC at the time of its release in 2003, it was reportedly watched by more than 10 million people.
