The Gymnasium of Virtue is the first book devoted exclusively to the study of education in ancient Sparta, covering the period from the sixth century B.C. to the fourth century A.D. Nigel Kennell refutes the popular notion that classical Spartan education was a conservative amalgam of "primitive" customs not found elsewhere in Greece. He argues instead that later political and cultural movements made the system appear to be more distinctive than it actually had been, as a means of asserting Sparta's claim to be a unique society. Using epigraphical, literary, and archaeological evidence, Kennell describes the development of all aspects of Spartan education, including the age-grade system and physical contests that were integral to the system. He shows that Spartan education reached its apogee in the early Roman Empire, when Spartans sought to distinguish themselves from other Greeks. He attributes many of the changes instituted later in the period to one person--the philosopher Sphaerus the Borysthenite, who was an adviser to the revolutionary king Cleomenes III in the third century B.C.

Some intriguing research. Very difficult to read and stay with the author. Needed a final breakdown on what was considered the right terms to use in the archaic and classical periods.

I sought this book to better understand the agoge and see what real life lessons and values I can take from it to apply to the modern day and raising my sons and future generations to be a man's man. Not only will raise my children to be gentlemen (and ladies) but I can take fom history a tried and practice method of producing the finest soldiers the world has known.

As much as I wish the author needn't discuss details of nomenclature for age groups, I understand and accept the neccessity for providing supporting evidence/facts in a textbook on subjects of ancient past so readily debated.

This is an excellent book about the Spartan system of educating young men (The Agoge). It looks at the way the Agoge existed in the Roman period and then traces it back through the Hellenistic period to the Archaic period. It has great coverage of the various rituals such as the Endurance contest. Occasionally, it becomes weighted down with discussion of details such as the names given to Spartan age groups. This is however within the scope of the book. It was not written so much for a general reader, though it can be read by one, but rather for someone with some knowledge of Spartan history. Overall, it is well researched and documented. Kennell reaches interesting conclusions about the Agoge's ties to society and religion.
