The Religious Teachers of Greece traces the development of the religious tradition of ancient Greece from Homer to Plato. Adam is particularly concerned with the tensions between poets and philosophers in the progress of religious ideas at that time. The ideas are thought to be of particular importance for students of early Christian literature, and by examining the conflict Adam hopes to have provided the reader with some clearer understanding of the historical significance of the conflict between poetry and philosophy and of the bearing of this conflict upon the religious traditions more broadly.
The Religious Teachers of Greece
In The Religious Teachers of Greece, James Adam investigates the religious ideas of ancient Greece and the development of such ideas out of the tensions that existed between those Greek philosophers and poets who were responsible for the religious teachings of those times.
