    The Spartan public educational system, the agoge, trained the

    mind as well as the body, and Spartans were not only literate, but

    admired for their intellectual culture and verbal skills.

  •  Sparta was the capital city of the large, prosperous, and

    economically powerful city-state of Lacedaemon. The economy

    of Lacedaemon was diverse, based on a wealth of natural

    resources and abundant fertile land. While trading in luxury

    goods, self-sufficiency in grain gave Sparta a significant political

    advantage.

     Sparta was the only Greek city-state in which women enjoyed

    elementary rights such as the right to education, inheritance, and

    property. Furthermore, Spartan women prided themselves on

    their intellectual accomplishments, possessed economic power,

    and were not afraid to express their opinions – leading other

    Greeks to condemn them as undisciplined, dangerous, and

    immoral.

  •  Sparta was the first Greek city-state to develop a complex system of

    mutual defense treaties, and it repeatedly intervened to defend

    democracy against tyranny. Spartan diplomacy was arguably even more

    effective than Spartan arms in maintaining Sparta's status for centuries.

     Although Spartans were proud to say that they built their monuments

    "in flesh" – meaning that the virtue and courage of Sparta's citizens

    were the greatest monuments to the city-state – they were not lacking in

    architectural and artistic achievements. The ancient Greek tour guide,

    Pausanias, catalogued hundreds of sites worth seeing. Nor was Sparta

    itself a collection of rural villages, as Athenian detractors depicted it,

    but rather a prosperous capital city with broad, tree-lined avenues,

    temples, monuments, public buildings, and royal palaces.

  • THE SPARTAN AGOGE:

    PUBLIC EDUCATION &

    CIVIC DUTY

  •  Successful completion of the public system of

    upbringing, the agoge, was a prerequisite for Spartan

    citizenship.

     Spartan education stressed love of intellect and

    knowledge as much as physical exercise.

     Public education was provided for girls as well as

    boys.

     Although Spartan education was famed for its

    exceptional harshness and emphasis on physical skills

    and endurance, it was also characterized by an unusual

    degree of self-government, freedom, and responsibility.

  •  Self-discipline, not kadavergehorsam (mindless obedience)

    was the goal of Spartan education.

     Literacy was higher in Sparta than in other Greek city-states,

    because only in Sparta was there a high degree of literacy

    among women as well as men.

    Spartan (laconic) rhetorical style was admired throughout the

    ancient world, attesting to its high quality — a product of the

    agoge
