The Greeks: Their heritage And Its Value Today


"What does it mean to be a Greek or a Greek-American today? An answer to this simple but surprisingly difficult question is given in this book by a noted scholar. Fr. Constantelos identifies the ideals and values of Hellenism that have remained constant from its ancient roots to its medieval and modern manifestations. In the first part, he explores the continuous identity of the Greek people and nation through its language and culture from antiquity down to the present. The second part reviews the highlights of Greek history. The third part focuses on twelve constant values and ideals of the Greek heritage, including religion and spirituality, the idea of the person, equality under the law, and education."
