Course Homepage:

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the principal Greek myths as they developed in Greek and Roman literature. We shall also move beyond narrative to consider the ways in which classical myths have been interpreted by both ancient and modern commentators. We will discuss the many contexts in which Greeks and Romans retold their myths, including song, dramatic performance, written literature, and plastic arts such as sculpture and painting. Required reading will include Hesiod's Theogony and Works and Days, Homer's Odyssey, the Homeric Hymns, selected tragedies from Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, and Ovid's Metamorphoses. Course requirements include two hour tests and a final exam.

Instructor(s): Bruce W Frier (

Prerequisites: Not open to first-year students. (3).

Credits: (3; 2 in the half-term).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

This course acquaints students with the fundamental concepts of Roman private law, with their origin in the society and government of the High Roman Empire, and with their all-important influence in the development of Western European legal theory and institutions. The course aims primarily to meet the interests of undergraduates with a bent toward law as a profession, but it is open to all students (except freshmen). We will use a direct application of the American case-law method to the teaching of Roman law. Our basic text will be a series of actual problems from the Roman jurists, which we will discuss in class; only as the occasion demands will the instructor "fill in the gaps" with short lectures on other relevant legal material. Thus, students should develop a feel for legal analysis and for the contribution made through such analysis by the Roman jurists; at the same time, students will learn Roman law in a form that will be directly relevant to future legal studies. Besides the handouts, one general introduction to Roman law (ca. 250 pages) will be required reading. There will be one hour test on material covered in class, in addition to the final examination; one paper (10 pages) will allow the student to analyze in detail a particular legal problem.
