1 A Tale of Two Cities A Tale of Two Wars Persian War Athens & Sparta vs. Persian Empire Peloponnesian War Athens vs. Sparta
2 Brief History of Greece The first great civilization in Greece and Crete was the Minoan (2000 BCE 1400 BCE). Around 1400 BCE, the Mycenaean civilization supplanted the Minoan, and dominated Greece until about 1100 BCE, when barbarians known as Dorians invaded.
3 Minoan civilization arose on the island of Crete.
4 The Hellenic Era Founding of Mycenae on the Peloponnesus ( B.C.) Mycenae (Greeks) battled for control of the Aegean Sea with Troy Trojan War
5 Mycenae and Troy
6 Emergence of the Polis, or Greek City-State Starting around 800 BCE a new civilization, the Hellenic, became dominant in Greece. By 750 B.C. city-states began to form The Hellenic civilization was composed of two strands, the Dorian and the Ionian. This civilization gave rise to a new form of social/political organization: the polis.
7 The Polis The polis was an independent, self-governing city of between 50,000 and 300,000 people. Several dozen polises (Greek poleis ) dotted the Greek countryside In each polis, politics, religion, and social life were closely intertwined.
8 Types of Government Two types of government were used in the Greek Polises. The Dorians generally had an oligarchic form of government. The Greek word oligarchy means rule by the few. The Ionians developed the first democratic form of government. Democracy means rule by the people.
9 Sparta and Athens Generally speaking, the Dorians depended upon agriculture, while the Ionians were seafarers and merchants. The two primary poleis were Sparta and Athens. Sparta was Dorian, oligarchic, and had an agriculture-based economy. Athens was Ionian, democratic, and depended on seafaring and trade.
10 Background History The Greek City-States under the leadership of Athens defeated the Persian Empire Athens is acknowledged as the leading Greek state However, as Thucydides relates in his history, Athenians increasingly fear Sparta as a competitor and believe they must increase Athen s power and subjugate Sparta
11 Athens and Sparta were both poleis (plural of polis. ) Both were city-states, independent, with their own sub-culture and form of governance. No capital city of Greece While you were Greek--and proud of it--your primary allegiance and loyalty were towards your city-state Many city-states in Greece and elsewhere. Athens and Sparta mentioned the most because they emerged as the most powerful ones.
12 TERMS 1.Monarchy Rule by a king 2.Oligarchy Rule by a small group of people. Usually elites bound together by interests and wealth. 3.Aristocracy Rule by a small group of people, but in the classical definition, they re chosen for their virtue and wise rule (though this wasn t always the case).
13 4. Tyranny Rule by a individual with absolute power who took power by force, sometimes with popular support 5.Acropolis Center and citadel of city-state. Literally means high city or city at the top. Usually refers to the one in Athens today 6.Agora TERMS An open public area acting as a center of public life and also the marketplace
14 7.Helot Land-bound serfs that worked Spartan land From surrounding land of Laconia and Messenia that were conquered. Owned by the state and not individual masters-- masters could not sell them. Sparta got half of the helot s crops. Significantly outnumbered the citizens. The potential threat they presented was another reason why the Spartans had such a potent army Spartans were reluctant to fight too far from Sparta lest the helots act up
16 Athens-A city of the Wise City located on southern portion of the Greek peninsula, not on the Peloponnesus A city run by thinkers and known for both its military might and wisdom in government and battle Appropriately named after Athena, goddess of wisdom in battle and counsel
17 Ancient Greek Map
20 Athens-Evolution of Democracy Around , Athens is ruled by kings. Over time it changes to an aristocracy (a few powerful, elite rule), Then a tyranny (one person takes control) Finally--by 450--a democracy (rule by many)
21 Athens-Democratic Principles New, democratic ideas emerge from Athenian culture and society: Direct Democracy: Citizens elect their representatives Public Debate: Becomes an art in Athens to discuss and argue specifics of government Duties of the Citizen: All citizens have responsibilities such as voting, participating in the government process
22 Women Women didn t have the same rights as in Sparta Expected to take care of the home Boys were taught reading and writing and Girls were taught domestic skills by slaves: like spinning and sewing Not allowed out of the house except nearby travels Main purpose was to produce healthy children Unusual considering that women played an important role in some religious rites and the city s patron goddess was Athena
23 Slavery Practiced throughout Greece and in Athens Rules governing it differed from city-state to city-state. Slaves usually barbarians, typically captured in war. Others were born slaves or their free parents sold them into slavery for money. Considered by some an abomination to enslave a fellow Greek. Greeks could be slaves, but many free Greeks didn t like the idea. Treatment different than that associated with American slavery.
24 Slavery cont. Relatively well-treated in Athens when compared with other places. Couldn t slap a slave because you might inadvertently hit a citizen instead. A master could beat his slave, though. Testimony was taken only under torture. Could buy freedom or earn through fighting in war. Masters could free their slaves. Even then, though, they couldn t be citizens and there were still conditions on them. In other city-states, treatment was much worse.
25 Sparta It was here: SPARTA
27 Sparta- A City of Warriors Those who lived around Sparta lived vastly different lives. They were more focused on war and building up strength to fight An early slave revolt causes the Spartans to create strict laws that demanded public allegiance to the state. Although they did have artistic culture, much of their energy was spent tuning their military skills
28 Sparta- Rise of the Oligarchy olig (few or little in Greek) arche (rule) Rule by a few Sparta develops a system where either the citystate was controlled by a king or by an oligarchy Citizens are not encouraged to speak freely, the few who rule were usually powerful military leaders.
29 Spartan Military Men married at the age of 20 Had to live in barracks for ten years If they wanted to see their wives, they had to escape At the age of 30, men could finally move home and were full citizens Still ate every meal in the military dining hall Food was sparse and plain
30 ATHENS VS SPARTA Greek City-States (Polis)
31 Women s roles Athenian: Spartan: Confined to the home not educated responsible for handicrafts and cloth Controlled home and land when husbands were fighting Come back with your shield, or on it.
32 Athens EDUCATION No formal education for girls Boys learned rhetoric (speaking skills), mathematics, reading writing, poetry, music, gymnastics Sparta Military school at age 7 for boys until 18 when they joined the military. Lived in barracks and stole to survive Girls learned athletics
33 sparta s legacy Military contributions The Phalanx (shown in the picture) Training and fighting styles Simple lifestyle Laconic of few words Spartan frugal, simple, plain
34 Athenian legacy Philosophy, architecture, drama, art
35 Athens birthplace of democracy Adult male citizens directly participated in affairs of the state Trial by a jury selected by lot Ostracism people could be banished from Athens by vote Council of 500, the Assembly
36 ATHEN S VS SPARTA
37 The Persian Wars Athens & Sparta vs Persian Empire
38 Why did the Persians invade Greece? In 519 B.C. the Persians conquered Asia Minor called the Ionian Greeks. AGH! Those Greeks will pay for this In 499 B.C. the Ionian Greeks asked the mainland Greeks for help. We re on the way Help! Athens sent warships but they were not strong enough to defeat the Persian army. This made the Persian King, Darius, very angry with Greece.
39 In 490 B.C. Darius sent 600 ships and thousands of soldiers to invade Greece. The Persian army landed at Marathon, Persians greatly outnumbered Greeks. Athenian force had no horses or archers, only fierce foot soldiers. Sparta Athens Marathon Persian Empire After a few days, the Persians decided to attack Athens by sea. While they were loading their ships, the Athenians attacked and defeated them. The Persians Retreated.
40 Marathon The Greeks sent their fastest runner Pheidippides to carry home news of the victory. He sprinted 26.2 miles from the battle site to the city-state of Athens. He arrived and said, Rejoice, we conquer, and died from exhaustion The Marathon race is named after this event.
41 What Happened at Thermopylae? In 480 B.C. Darius son Xerxes sent a larger force to conquer Greece. He sent 200,000 soldiers and nearly 1,000 ships. Athens had convinced Sparta to join them Sparta took charge of the army.
42 Persia Invades Greece The Persian army had little trouble It came to a narrow mountain pass called Thermopylae...7,000 Greeks waited for the Persians. Someone led the Persians behind the Greek army,
43 A Small Spartan force of about 300 men commanded by King Leonidas, guarded the mountain pass of Thermopylae. They held out heroically against he enormous Persian force for three days. They were betrayed when someone told the Persians how to get behind the army. They were defeated, but won valuable time for the rest of the Greeks.
44 Battle of Thermopylae ff4
45 Results of the Persian Wars The Greek sense of uniqueness was increased. Athens emerged as the most powerful city-state in Greece. Athens takes credit leading the victory. Athens organized the Delian League, an alliance with other Greek city-states. Athens used the league to assert power and build an Athenian Empire. They moved the treasury to Athens, and forced people to stay in the league against their will. Persia still exists. Greek cities in Asia Minor are still controlled by Persia.
46 Age of Pericles Elected to lead Athens on and off for 30 years. All citizens can hold office. - ½ of population not citizens Slaves made government participation possible. City is rebuilt with Delian funds. City-states that oppose Athens are crushed by League.
47 Athens as Leader Athens rebuilds after the Persian War. Rather than win by conquest, it tries diplomacy. Many allies together, sharing money, troops and ships.
48 The Greeks at War Between 500 and 400 B.C. the Greeks fought several wars. Two were against the powerful Persian Empire to the east of Greece. Then a civil war broke out among the citystates of Greece.
49 Sparta- Athens in Conflict Each city had a vastly different social and government structure. Although they agreed on issues such as the limited role of women and the role of slaves, they had many disagreements Athenians were interested in military strength, but also in art and culture. Spartans were only interested in military power. This type of rift leads to fighting across the Peloponnesus.
50 The Peloponnesian War Athens & Delian League vs Sparta & the Peloponnesian League
52 Greek against Greek Many Greeks resented the Athenian domination. The Greek world split into rival camps. To counter the Delian League, Sparta and other enemies of Athens formed the Peloponnesian League. Sparta encouraged an Oligarchy (government run by business) in the states of the Peloponnesian League, and Athens supported democracy. A 27 year war broke out in 431 B.C. engulfing all of Greece
53 The Peloponnesian War Sparta attacks Athens Sparta has no Navy Athenians hide inside walls. Athens controls the ocean, from Delian League. Athens gets greedy, attacks Sicily & LOSES. Sparta builds small navy, stops food from getting in. Eventually, Athens surrenders.
54 The Aftermath of War The Peloponnesian war ended Athenian greatness. In Athens Democratic government suffered: Corruption and selfish interests replaced order. Fighting continued to disrupt the Greek world. Sparta itself suffered defeat at the hands of Thebes, another Greek city-state. Greece was left vulnerable to invasion. Cultural development was arrested.
55 Sparta Controls Greece Sparta gets respect, seems to rule. But other city-states gain control. Corinth, then Thebes Greece is left weak. City-States fight, use up resources. Greece conquered by Philip II from the region of Macedon to the North. Philip unites, son Alexander takes over
