Course objectives
The preparation for the colloquium consists in individual study of literature and translated sources on history of the Middle East, Greece and Rome in antiquity.
The aim of the history of the Middle East studies is to understand the natural conditions, the pre-state development, the forms of state, the religion, the mythology, the law and the society structure of the Middle East countries as well as possible, to get to know their spiritual and material culture and to be able to characterize the basic differences between the society and the culture of old eastern states and of the antiquity.
As far as the study of Greek Antiquity is concerned, the aim is, above all, the ability of independent interpretation of Greek sources (at least the narrative ones), the interpretation of official, religious and cultural terms in Greek history and the evaluation of the contribution of the Greeks to other civilizations of the antiquity and also to modern culture.
