Ancient Greece: Sparta

http://www.wsu.edu:8080/~dee/GREECE/SPARTA.HTM

Rating: 2, High!

Description: The Greek city state of Athens, had a bitter enemy and rival in the city state of Sparta. The two represented opposite concepts of the Greek polis and its relations with other city-states. They also represented diametrically opposed concepts of the individual's relationship to the state. Despite all the rhetoric in Athens and in the European historical tradition, we should keep in mind that the Spartans believed they lived in the best of all Greek worlds, and many of their Greek neighbors agreed with them. The rivalry, then, between Sparta and Athens, which would erupt into a disastrous war for Athens, was also an ideological and cultural rivalry. Learn more about Sparta at this website. Standard 6.4.6
