HEBREWS, GREEKS, AND ROMANS The Foundations of western Civilization

by | Read by Timothy B. Shutt

History • 7 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2003

In this 14-lecture offering from The Modern Scholar series, Professor Shutt discusses the civilizations of the ancient Mediterranean and the modern West's indebtedness to them. His presentation is non-pedantic, informal, and enthusiastic. In a scratchy, mildly strident voice, he projects as if talking to a full lecture hall. Despite that and mouth noises that should have been edited out, he is immensely engaging. Those who have heretofore found the subject dull will change their minds within the first few minutes of the first lecture. A beautiful full-color pamphlet accompanies the tapes. Y.R.
