Book Description Edinburgh University Press. Paperback / softback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Greek Athletics, Konig, Jason Konig, Athletic training and athletic competition were key features of ancient Greek life for more than 1,000 years, from the foundation of the Olympic festival in the eighth century B.C.E. to the Roman period. Many seminal articles on this subject remain inaccessible, especially to English-speaking readers, but with this volume, essential readings on core themes are made available, including coverage of gymnasium education, festival competition and victory, the role of athlectic activity in conceptions of ancient identity, and the reception of ancient athletic heritage in the modern world. Five French and German essays are translated here for the first time, and an extensive introduction addresses central issues relating to the study and research of athletics in ancient Greece.
