Lifelong Learning Fall 2015 Classes A Tale of Two Parthenons: Athens and Nashville

Fridays – A Tale of Two Parthenons: Athens and Nashville with instructor: Wesley Paine
Director of the Parthenon and co-author of “Classical Nashville”

This course examines the construction of the ancient Parthenon in Greece, with an emphasis on the extraordinary engineering feats involved (how did they DO that?) and the reasons for its construction in the context of time and place. A quick look at the far-reaching influence of the Parthenon on western civilization will follow. That influence gave rise to Nashville’s view of itself as the “Athens of the South” and resulted in the construction of a replica here. The class will learn about construction (twice) of Nashville’s Parthenon as well as its statue of Athena and will culminate in a field trip for a behind- the-scenes tour of this important icon.

*This class will be a Travel Learning Course for the Footsteps of Paul trip that Scott Sager will host in March. One site on the trip is Athens, Greece, and the original Parthenon. Those registering for the trip take this class free of charge.
