L’enseignement aussi bien en Grèce qu’à Rome est fondé sur le principe de la répétition et l’imitation. Les châtiments corporels que l’on trouve fréquemment mentionnés ont pour but de corriger le corps de l’enfant et donc sa capacité à apprendre.
When I say I’m traveling to southern Italy, people ask if I’m going to Amalfi. When I mention a must-do day trip to the ruins, they assume Pompeii is my destination. Where I’m headed, though, is another area in Campania, 25 miles south of Amalfi, home to my Italian relatives and the ancient Greek ruins of Paestum.
Paestum is recognized by UNESCO as part of the World Cultural Heritage and is home to three of the most beautiful and largely intact Doric Greek temples (all built to honor female goddesses). It is far less known and less crowded than Pompeii [...]

The most impressive frescoes for me were found in the Tomb of the Leopards. The main strip of mural depicts a lavish banqueting scene in honour of the dead, including several couples tended by two young boys. The men have darker skin while the women are lighter. The side walls of the burial chamber are painted with people bringing dishes, playing instruments and dancing among pretty foliage. Although the drawing is quite simple, it is amazing to see such strong colours bursting out of a fresco that dates back to around 450 BC. [...]
What happens when a wide swath of history — previously only explored by white-gloved librarians and erudite historians — is made available to anyone with a solid internet connection?
Thanks to the Pope, we’ll soon find out. The Vatican Apostolic Library has announced it will digitize all 82,000 manuscripts in its 135 collections with the help of a Japanese IT company. That’s 41 million pages spanning nearly 2,000 years of church history that will soon be clickable, zoomable, and presumably, printable.
