Equality in Ancient Greece – Did it exist?

Tuesday, 21 February 2023

“Equality in Ancient Greece – Did it exist? A historical, gender-critical analysis of a popular concept and ideal”

Lecture by Prof. Jorunn Økland (Professor – Centre for Gender Research; Adjunct Professor – Faculty of Theology, University of Oslo, Norway) at the Norwegian Institute at Athens.

What do we mean when we speak of “democracy” in ancient Athens, for example, or “Society of Equals” in Early Christianity? When and why did it become possible to think of equality as equity, juxtaposition?

The lecture will argue that it is important to specify what exactly we mean by “equality” if we apply the concept to ancient texts and societies.
